    I'm surprised text chews up that much memory but it looks thorough and complete.
    Hey now, it made it through with 0.07 mb to spare!

    Okay, I officially no longer have the slightest clue how jpeg file compression works. By adding even more text, plus a colour burn behind all the inklines, the jpeg file size has shrunk considerably!

    But, it's complete! With hours and hours to spare no less!

    Moutarde, this is simply gorgeous. I *love* this map! The only thing is, it seems like the theme got lost. I'd hate for you to lose votes because folks say "I couldn't see any points of light!" Think you could maybe throw a lens flare or something in on your major cities to get the Points of Light back in?

    Maybe even just a colour dodge around the cities, that should be easy enough Great idea Gidde!

    Okay here's the update. By the way, the reason I couldn't do a lens flare, is that this map was done entirely by hand (except the borders, and straight edges on the scales), and I can't think of any reason why a dwarven cartographer would draw lens flares on his map

    Oh yeah, and the mug stains are a brush, I didn't draw those

    Edit: I've posted a higher quality version over at deviantart, 14mb - http://aferlane.deviantart.com/#/d38f1st

    Naw, the lens flare thing was just to illustrate what I was talking about, it wasn't a specific request. This works wonderfully.
