    Map Map of Venus

    Finally finished! Labeling was hard.
    The WIP thread.

    This is the planet Venus in an universe with a working ether theory which leads to working etherdrive spaceships. Under the 'evercloud' of Venus exist large continents and island, thriving with strange flora and fauna - and an intelligent native species with an early 19th century tech standard. When the humans begin to colonize the cool polar regions (still with average day temperatures of 35° Celsius) this lead to war as the Venusians are rather unhappy about this development.

    The ! in the city names is a click consonant like in some African languages.

    Enjoy! If so, don't hesitate to rate the map.

    I like the artwork the best, the zeppelins and rockets really have a Flash Gordon vibe, which is cool, and I love the blue thing with a gun. Nice job.

    I love the rivers.

    And the forests.
    And the typefaces/ labeling. And the artwork. And the cartouche.



    Everything, really.

    Nice map, Sapiento. That thing carrying the gun makes me laugh. Hehe.
