    And I think we're done! (Can't think of anything else to put into it), The Satrapy of Ketch returns (I hate the whole naming thing - one bit of this maps has towns named after single malts and another politicians, just so I could get something down).

    For someone that hates naming things your pretty darn good at it. I think I might try to name things after my favorite TV show. How about the Kingdom of Jezzer or the Stig Wildlands.. Oh and as I've said before great great map.

    Just found a little nitpick, sorry. Between Hamilton and Waterford (Upper right of the map) you forgot the text "tland". Seems to be a a try from "The Heartland s".

    Otherwise the map is great!

    Thanks Guys. Zar - the 'land' you saw was the tail end of another region 'Rutland' but the Rut was hidden by the mountains. Thanks for the catch, I've moved the label so it's easier to see.

    I'm glad you muted the border, looked kind of weird before. Strong work, my friend, very strong.

    Beautiful map, Ravs. Good luck in the challenge - I'm sure you'll get lots of votes.

    Lol, thanks guys. I'll be delighted to get a few votes, although I think this comp is going to be more about who comes second (#me looks at DJ's map). Then again, people like Torstan and Ascension (to name but two) are just getting started, so it's going to get very interesting. I was getting a bit worried that interest in the challenges was waning a bit, but this month is a doozy! Ascension, yeah after I saw your and Ramah's comments about DJ's border, I took another look at mine and dialled it back a bit. Still not really happy with it and might change it later on if I have the time and am happy with everything else.

    I am so glad I did the challenge this month, I've never really done one of these traditional Fantasy grunge/Tolkien tree maps at this scale and am really pleased with the result. The challenge deadline has actually forced me to finish this one.

    A bit more minor fiddling with the Cartouche and some misnamed places.

    Not a big fan of the yellowy feel but that's just personal preference, still a very nice looking map. Nice work Ravells.

    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...
