Another big step for me, this was entirely done in Corel PHOTO PAINT(X3). this was my first try making mountains with the bevel tool, and land using the fountain fill. The map relies heavily on merges, a tool I recently figured out how to use. Not what I can really call the fullest example of what can be done with corel, but a great learning experience for me.
The mainland region of Lormwen has been under the control of the elves for the past 3000 years. Recently, within the past 300 years, humanity appeared from the west in massive ships, and established a naval empire on the islands of Tol Lona and Tol Andu. The elves, fearing invasion, have spent the past three centuries launching relentless assaults on these human nations.
10 years ago a rabbitoid race, known as the Tharan, began a series of their own assaults on the elven cities in the forests of Aurithorn and Sylverthorn. The elves were quickly overrun due to the Tharans' massive numbers, as well as the fact that most if the elvish military was on a campaign against the human empire.
With news of the Tharan invasion, the elvish navy abandoned the naval campaign and are now working on securing the grasslands and cities along the coast. However, in the confusion, the elves are no longer united, and have fragmented into the three elvish nations of Ceneluhn, Anduluhn, and Grathluhn.
That turned out great. Have some rep.
Can't wait to see a drawing of a Tharan :D

As long as they don't look like the rippers from the 'Tank Girl' movie :D
