Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.
WOW, nice map
Your map has its own website too? Now you're just showing off.
Frankly apart from the critique about shorelines... I can't think of a single thing to say about this other than that it's absolutely beautiful. Bravo.
yes, here's the basics from earlier in the thread - If you have any specific questions let me know here, but really its just grabbing your imagination and tools and experimenting I think.

I gathered high resolution satellite images and used photoshop's "content aware fill" to remove any lines or abberations in the textures.
I used Bitmap2Material to create seamless high resolution textures for the different landscapes. You can also use the seamless texture filter in GIMP
I brought the illustartor outline into photoshop and used it as a mask for the textures, and brought the textures together in photoshop. I usually use Fireworks, but it was just crashing. Photoshop seemed to handle the multilayered 8192x8192 file better.
I like countries more than Kingdoms so that's good. Countries can be ruled any number of ways right? Monarchy? Plutocracy? etc..
