When voting, I also add an "unofficial" category of usability to my decision making process. In other words, is the map something I would using in a role-playing game? That thought in mind, my votes in order of preference;
Steel General - Love the storyline and the breakdown in districts by guild. Beautiful detail.
Hoel - Lovely map with easy to understand icons.
Gamerprinter - I love the style of this piece of art. I can easily see the eastern influences in the map making process. The map itself could be useful, but I honestly see this as a potential player handout more than a functional map.
Great job to everybody that participated. As always, it was difficult to decide with all the entrants.
