    Wip The Crescent Empire

    I figured I would start a new map just for the sake of making a map. Here's the basic base map; I'm sure you all can guess why it's named what it is.

    Nice shape! But ... where is the water / land?

    I would advise the white area is the land, but my first impression said, that it is the black one. Which one is it?

    I was just browsing when this map stopped me, thats some crazy landshapes, I love it

    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...

    That's how a fantasy map should look - crazy like wow. Nice job.

    That is crazy! Fun, too. I like where you've put the compass rose.

    I should've called it the Empire of LOL.

    Here's another update. Mountains, rivers, and some rough deserty/badlands terrain in the central and northern portions. I think maybe it's too dark now, what do you guys think?

    I think it looks good so far, deserts aren't always yellow-white sand.
