Kingdom of Rothon - My very first map
Hey everyone. I am completely new to this whole cartography-thing and this morning I stumbled upon this great site. I came here because I am thinking about a fantasy-setting for a videogame, and at one point I thought "Well, there HAS TO BE a map of the world!". I googled a bit, found my way here and looked at some of the maps and finally, I grabbed Photoshop and tried for myself.
I call it the Kingdom of Rothon, but actually this has nothing to do with the world I am dreaming about, it's merely a test-map. I was lazy, so almost all names are from name generators by the way :D There is a version with labels and one without. The main shape is randomly generated in Photoshop, same goes for the woods. The dotted lines are the main trade routes between the different settlements.
Please comment and critique!

AW: Kingdom of Rothon - My very first map
Thanks everyone for the nice words!
Troedel, I will try out what you mentioned. Thanks for the advice.
And master rahl, yes I already had the feeling that something was wrong with my rivers. I read through that post (and the other one that was linked inside) and i think I learned quite a bit. Thank you.
