    This is a great map, and the vivid colors really do it for me. The only think I think needs any work are the bubble-wrap mountains. Otherwise, this looks like one of the finest entries this month!

    A desert that is not in the south, preposterous! Loving the work Ascension, my only quip is that the text is a little hard to read at this scale, but that's probably me.

    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...

    Some of the text is a bit tough to read, but this has got that "moody-darkness" that you bring across so well. Great job as always!

    Superb stuff. All those rivers are really paying off. It benefits the coastline too, all those little estuaries make the coastline look much more realistic.

    I haven't done anything on this because I was experimenting with all sorts of effects n stuff, too much stuff, but I've learned a whole heck of a lot (that I can't even begin to post 'cuz I'd have a post every day of little things and that would be ridiculous). I finally found inspiration for labels this afternoon and rushed a bunch of stuff in - some gold-edged paper and a bunch of names from my memory of various mythos, legends, religion, etc. So it's incomplete and that top part is really lame. Oh well. I might take this into a world map format and space everything out properly 'cuz it looks rather crowded right now instead of being a largely unpopulated world. Plus I've got way more places to add and then do some research on what else to add. So, for what it's worth, here's the final.

    looks fantastic Ascension, I was away when this contest ran and suddenly remembered I had to look back on your light effects... I started a WIP to long ago (land of twillight) where I planned to use candles and lanterns for city markers... you beat me too it *lol* now I have to get another original idea.. damn... perhaps I should just learn to finish my projects
    Beautiful map - especially love the prismatic gate
