    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.

    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
