Lots of cool ideas come just from the over view map.
Hmm.. perhaps the only civilizations are on the rivers, with most people afraid to venture far into the inland areas( cannibalistic tribes, monsters, etc.) Lots of jungles with thick trees and heavy undergrowth to make overland travel very difficult which is why most of the towns and cities are on the rivers.
