    better than the last version, though personally i still prefer the first version. seems more 'natural'

    Someone may have said this or this is just my mind going weird but I like it how the shape of the dragon almost seems to match the shape of the coastline

    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...

    I like where you're going with this, particularly the (to me) unreadable vertical script

    Thanks Lukc! I'm thinking of putting more on, like the bit in the top corner of the ocean but in various places... sorta like little notes or descriptions of the areas or some such. Dunno, maybe too much? Anyhoo, I cleaned up a lot of little details everywhere, bit more on the dragon, added more labels (may move some of them later). I wonder if I should make some distinction between the label dots; before flood = filled circle, after flood = open circle? Might try it. Adjusted the contrast/levels again, too... darker. XD

    Changed some label dots and added a key. Don't know as I'll have much time to do anything else. Any suggestions for making it better (not necessarily for now... but whenever) or more usable for special interest, like game-playing and such, would be very much appreciated. I'm kinda curious what use people put this type of map to. And thanks to everyone who made comments! =)
