    Default Border and Map Decor - Ongoing WIP

    I find one problem I often face is not decorating my maps properly. So in an effort to develop this skill I'll be posting new border and decor ideas and look for ideas or criticism. Tonight I made my own map for the adventure from the 4e DMG to play with some new players to the game and decided to try and dress it as a test and possible solution for my lite challenge map. Let me know if you have any advice. Only weak thing I think I see personally is the font is too small therefore poor legibility but I am unsure.

    Note: Added shading effect to this map for the border but won't be used in the battle map for Maptools.

    Looks good to me. The border fits the map very well.

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
