    vman thanks for suggestion and if I can get more time I'll see if I can adjust it.

    Anyways here is an update, I've done a ton of things, and probably will be the final set up, some minor tweaks here and there but yeah this should be it. Well let me know what you think. I fixed the border, added some more elements, and fixed the Banner.

    My eyes keep wanting to put a medium or light brown stroke around the coast. The title should be curved to fit the bend of the banner. Pretty, though.

    Ascension - Do you mean have a stroke, like the lighter one I have, the light doulbe stroke? or another one added to it (or replaces it), that separates the land and ocean? But thanks of the comments, and I'll see what I can do!

    I see two pale pink strokes on the pinky-purple sea. My mind wants more separation because everything is so light. I'm a big fan of subtle but I hit my limit here. Nothing wrong with what you have at all, mind you, just me. I keep wanting that standard brown stroke to separate things. It may look like total crap so maybe a bluey-purple stroke...I dunno. OR keep it as is since you're the only one who really has to like it.

    Alright found a little more time to plug into this. I took all of your suggestions and thank you! Vman, I played with it a bunch, and well couldn't really get an overall good result (some decent ones) but I'll post the one I ended up liking (adjusting the ocean) and the normal one from the previous versions.

    Thanks Ascension of the tips and it does help out a lot more!

    First image is normal
    Second image is the adjusted ocean

    Nice work Yandor. I like how you've used quotations as flavor text to mark the various places on the map.

    Cheers,

    "The Great Stars" text has an erroneous apostrophe in "God's".
