    Well I ditched the old, slighty modified compass and replaced it with one that was hand drawn. The heron design is copied from the "official" heronmark swords available on the internet, and the dragons were copied from a tatoo design, but in each case I took the time to imitate them by hand. For the dragon, I actually used the pen tool and then created the curves individually, resulting in a different, and I think smoother design. The Aes Sedai symbol was free-handed and I think it shows, and the spear was simple enough to create using basic geometry and a little Photoshop magic. I like how it turned out well enough.

    Also flipped the Tar Valon marker horizontally, although I had to go back to the original to make the change because of the shading. The flame is on the right, fang is on the left in keeping with the watermark.

    I added a whole lot of towns and villages. Not very visually stimulating but informative.

    Heh. I'll be done when I go to bed tonight since I have to work tomorrow and I'm closing the challenge at 5pm ET which is when I get off, if I'm lucky.

    Here I have made countless small changes. I went through the 13thdepository.com maps and moved some downs, added some, removed one or two entirely, adjusted font sizes all over the place. I'd curved the water labels to make them follow the spherical grid, which is gone now, so I replaced them with regular fonts again.

    I added a couple of place names like Arran Head. I've also combed through other maps like Midgardsormr's "Randland". There are quite a few out there and each gives hints to the existence of this place or that. They may not always have them in the right place, but once you know it's there, it's just a matter of researching until you find it.

    I found a couple of rivers in or near Shienar that had the wrong font. Stuff like that and too much to mention. Here's the thing... whether I get it right or wrong, a lot of people will wind up using the map as a reference source. That makes me want to get it right. Thanks to all of you, I've probably done a fairly decent job.

    Noted tilt, and stedding have been toned down. I also added a new frame.

    For those who find the dragon frame too busy/distracting/much, here's a key frame which is much more soothing. Opinions?

    Okay I'm going to quit and call this a map before I do something stupid. Thanks again everyone for the enormous quantity and quality of support.
