    Paint a hard line at the top of the cliff face.
    Select the cliff face area.
    Enlarge the selection to include the stroke.
    Filter->Noise->Slur, and repeat it a few times with different amounts. This randomly pulls down pixels through the cliff face selection.
    Do a motion blur at 270degrees (straight down), setting the length of the blur to the size of the cliff.
    Add a layer, fill the selection 50% grey.
    Bump map the solid layer, using the streaky blurred one as the source, set layer to 50% opacity.
    Duplicate layer, set to overlay, 100%

    Here are the three layers I have, l-r: blurred slurs, 40% normal, 100% overlay:

    This looks tons better(not that the other one was bad), and a lot more natural and blended.

    No Probs!

    Most of the things I end up with in the GIMP are through trial and error. And a lot of just goofing around. The cliffs turned out better than I expected....just glad for the "undo" palette that let me go back and see how I had done it

    I think we are nearly finished.

    So, does anybody else want I change something ? (I'm not sure of this sentence ... ^^)

    The forests are great!

    You might want to consider putting a bit more blur between some of your transitions from grass to dirt, especially the one in the top center. There is a lot of spread there.

    Also, consider adding a high cloud bump map to parts (just perhaps random selections instead of the whole thing) of the dirt layer(or a copy) with very low depth and fairly high elevation. Just enough to get a little rolling hills going on and then blend this in with spread/blur.

    These two things are not 100% necessary as it's a very nice as it is, but I would probably try to see if I could get a bit more terrain variation.

    Ok, thanks for the help.
    This is the new version, following your instructions.
    The hills noise is plasma and the bump is duplicated four times.
