    Arcana - I'm going to disagree with Joe on this one. I really LIKE the dark splotches in the bay. It is obvious (to me) that they are deep trenches/gorges/pits in the ocean floor. It is also obvious (to me) that they are the home of sahaguin raiders or ancient ruins or some such. I say keep 'em.

    Updated.

    I redid the forests completely, and added a few more of them to boot. Made them more splotchy and hopefully more natural as opposed to big green blobs.

    I also added the burning gorge. My primary evil deity is Consecra, The Burning Queen. Her worshippers waged war several hundred years ago and in the process set fire to a huge area of the kingdom. The war ended with a treatise that "gave" them their land to burn and marr as they saw fit so long as they didn't use their large scale fire magicks on any of the kings lands. There is a HUGE (more than 50 miles long) rift in the earth that was opened by their fiery pact with Consecra, and it is the source of their power. So the big blackened area west of the Eastpeaks is the home of Consecra's Burning Host.

    I'm thinking of putting some orange/magma in the rift and maybe some magma pools or something in the burning gorge area.

    What say ye all?

    I say go for it, if it doesn't turn out quite how you hoped, you can always turn the level off!

    Nice job, I like it.

    Thanks! I'm really thinking about moving this to Illustrator though...I think I'd be able to put MUCH more into it. Wouldn't be as artsy, but woudl be much more functional.

    Looking really good Arcana! My only small comment is that the river labels might look a little better if you increased the spacing between the characters and 'followed' the line of the river. Example below using Times New Roman, but you'll obviously want to use your own font.

    In Gimp at least, there is a Text to Path command. I assume PS has something like that. Don't ,know about other software though.
