    That is... incredibly awesome. I love it! The detail is so intricate and it really captures that old worn map look (though you do have a little weird strip on the right side that might need erasing). What did you make this with?

    Post Almost perfect!

    Nice hand-drawn style, is it hand-drawn, the woods make it look like it is. Nice job! Have some REP!

    At the same time, I was giving it my River Police Inspection, and I thought it passed. At the last second -- I'm looking at the river at the top of the map, if I am not mistaken, the river forks downstream, the northern part enters the forest of Finnhard and empties into the sea. The southern fork empties into a lake then a river takes that to the sea.

    And I was going to flag you by, but I guess I'll have to give you a citation!

    Almost perfect, I think that's an issue, rivers never fork downstream and it looks like it is - need to fix that. Make it two different rivers one in the woods and one down south to the lake and the sea.

    Still get REP, nice job.

    Well they can but it's very rare and they join back up within a very short bit (so yea they can't flow out like they do there). On an unrelated note is that town called Lintwich? Cause that is an awesome name.

    He means that rivers don't split into seperate rivers when flowing down (they only come together making larger single rivers out of multiple smaller rivers). The only exception like I said is when they branch around a high point but they then will join up again quickly (forming a large island in the river).

    I see ... the only exception from this would be river deltas ...
    guess i failed the river policy then ...
    I will do better on the next map

    All names on the map are constructed from old-high-german language

    lintwich would be something like lindenwood

    Well a river delta is more like a sand bank. The river picks up sediment and soil in its flow and drops it downstream. With a delta the point where it enters the ocean becomes a primary drop point for this dirt so it builds up into little islands.

    Very nice, reminiscent of the maps from Lord of the Rings.

    Looking forward to seeing more of your work.
