    Dangit..this just looks so good that I keep looking at it and it makes me want to do this challenge now. I was going to sit out all challenges this round because I really need to focus elsewhere but now I don't know if I can help it. And why I would want to join a contest where I know I'm going up against stellar work by others I have no idea...but there it is.

    I love this color scheme, Diamond, and it's a really cool premise. Keep up the good work!

    Thanks for the kind words, guys. I appreciate it.

    Here's a bit more done. Coming along pretty quickly now; I still want to figure out a way to show where the various Clan headquarters are within the Khanate - these are the actual biker gangs which are united under the Khan in Montray city. I was thinking about drawing in small banner-like flags with simple color schemes and then having larger more intricate flags on the left-hand border like I've done with my most recent couple of maps, but I dunno. I kind of think that vein might be getting tapped out...

    Anyway, here's another update. 'Sierra Mountains' should be a bit easier to read now, and I added a heavier glow around the cities and towns, as well as adding in more trees, the Old Roads, and modern roads.

    This might be done, or close to it. I still want to figure out a way to show individual biker Clans, but it might be overkill, and out of place on a map like this.

    Mods: Do you think that CC license in the corner will do the trick?

    I think it should be fine. I'll wait to commwnt on the map itself until I'm on my computer and can see it better

    Well, I think this is done, unless I spot any egregious errors or think of something to change and/or add.

    Base Map: Open Streetmap
    Brushes (mountains, hills, forest): StarRaven Link
    Motorcycle/dude: Not mine. It's a scan from a page ripped out of a magazine that I've had sitting in a file cabinet for a year or two. Unfortunately cannot credit properly due to not remembering which magazine it's from.
    Fonts: Ariapenciroman and Writingstuff, both from dafont.com.

    I was gonna give you some rep but I gotta spread some around. Well done, mate.
