I just created a lava field texture out of stacked layers of fractal cloud color mixes (dark orange, light orange), fractal cloud transparency (dark yellow, 100% transparency), then a chopped up stone texture with flat bevel applied sitting on top. Grouped together and exported as a repeating JPG image... enjoy! All done in Xara Designer Pro 9 - my preferred vector drawing application.
I love that lava field! Although the ice has an odd color/noise on the side.
I think I'd be better off creating pack ice texture from scratch in vector, rather than color shifting in Photoshop. Pack ice should be flat on top. (You can see why I prefer vector to an image editor, based on the color noise issue I encountered in Photoshop).
Nice map, I think my players will have to meet this guy!
