    Default Ginsion Kingdom

    My first finished map!

    Let me first thank everyone who has helped me progress so quickly with this map, and cartography in general. Special mention for Ascension, having made a great tutorial and giving me tips along the way, Gidde for providing a translation for GIMP, and Arsheesh for more helpful tips and inspiration.

    The WIP can be found here.

    Now, I'm a man of background stories, so I'll provide a little bit of information about the kingdom itself (most of which is copied from the WIP):
    Ulria, Falan and the city of Waterwatch are part of the Ginsion kingdom.
    The Northern Bleak is home to countless of savage warrior clans, but rumours go that one Northman has started to call himself King of the North, having united countless of clans under his banner.
    The Kingdom of Tir Jalla is a sophisticated culture, but remains mostly a mystery to the inhabitants of Ginsion. A strained alliance exists after Ginsion successfully defeated the Tir Jallesian army in order to get a foothold on the barren peninsula (followed by the founding of Waterwatch).
    The Free Isles are home to the scum of the earth, since they have nowhere else to go, apart from the Deadman's Plains, but those are rumoured to be cursed.
    The Harhashhi Desert is home to a people even more obscure and mysterious than the Tir Jallese.

    Women's Tear is a giant unnatural structure beneath the sea. It gained it's name from persistent rumours that any ship sailing over its top will vanish off the face of the earth/sea, leaving the sailors' women heartbroken and alone.
    Deadship Gully is a deep chasm in the middle of the sea, home to various strange sudden powerful currents that rise up and crush ships between walls of water

    Now why can't my mountains look that good. Has some repped, it is much deserved.

    -D-
    People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...

    You just hit a whole in one Matrim, seriously great work man. The tidbit of advice I offered you on your trees you managed to take and innovate in new and interesting ways to great effect. This piece ought to serve as an inspiration to newcomers to this sight who lack confidence that they will be capable of achieving the beautiful maps they see throughout this site-your map of the Ginsian Kingdom exposes the lie in that despair. Here's some well deserved rep.

    Cheers,

    -Arsheesh
