    What a great update! Where did you get the border, it looks very good - simple but beautiful!

    Almost done now. All that's left is to finish labeling (there's some more stuff I'm going to add in that'll require labels, and I need to name all those cities), and wrap up the Key, and I think it'll be done.

    One more update and I think that's it. I want to put some hand-drawn icons and notes in there, like someone went in and annotated the map later on. Problem is getting them to look natural without cramping the map.
