    Added a few more labels - I have a feeling I'm not going to be able to do much more with this map. It's sort of a strange assortment of names. I would have liked to spent time on the hidden city in the center of the forest, but we'll just have to keep it a mystery.

    Am I imagining things, or do all your labels tilt to the left now? Not that that's a bad thing, I was just wondering what the reasoning behind that was...

    good call Diamond. the large labels are titled -3 degrees, while the smaller labels are tilted -4 degrees.
    Just felt like doing it, since I had North on the compass tilted a bit. Didn't think anyone would actually pick up on that.

    Looks great. The label tilt is a neat effect. I actually thought I was tilting my head instead.

    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.

    I think the tilt effect is quite effective and adds a bit of extra interest. Good job.

    I couldn't figure out how to change the "untilted" thread title to "Molta"

    Title changed per above 'request'.

    @RjBeals - Not sure if a regular user can do this or not, but it is in the "Administrative" drop-down menu, select "Edit Thread"

    Another great piece! I really like this, besides the clean & crips borders and labels (which is what the challenge is about) , your pick of color-palette is spot-on again. cheers, DJ
