    Sapiento: I am using two fonts mostly. One is called Viking. I use it mostly for numbering and the lettering of the grid. I like it as a font though it has (I just realized yes, it has the same name as my username here haha) no lower case per se so it sees limited use. The second is Broken Planewing which in my map is used mostly everywhere. It isn't perfect as it leaves a few messy traces under some capital letters. I do wish I had something clearer from further away.

    Adam Kadmon: Thanks Adam! Lol yes, the dragon/pterodactyl continent is pretty fantastic (as in fantastical). I have to be honest, projection is something that I did not really consider with this map Tilting the compass is kind of neat when I do it but I may keep that for a future map. Painting it all by hand is pretty fun though it is quite time consuming!!

    AzurePlanet: Thank you very much! I will keep on it!


    Here is an update of what will eventually be the legend:

    I've been busy working on real life things that need to be done so have worked on this only when I can. Just an update:

    Inspired by Max's forests I decided to try to put some trees in my map instead of just implying their existence through colour. Of course, from this far away you wouldn't see any trees at all. I still have a lot of nit picky things to do like defining the mountains. I have been trying my hardest to eliminate outlining their shapes in black line or something.

    Absolutely fantastic!

    You are gentleman and an artist. Everything from the colours to the shape of the landmasses looks great.

    My hat is off to you. Even my hat's hat is off as well!

    I'm still working on this thing, slowly. I just have so many other things that unfortunately take precedent I've been working on the legend and have decided to take the fairly common path of throwing in some heraldry since the legend is so darn big. I'm experimenting a bit with the city icons here. I will need to print a test soon to see how clearly things print as I've realized things are pretty crowded and may be hard to read. I think I need to do some fiddling still with clarity and am open to suggestions. These images are at about 70% of the full size by the way.

    Does anyone think the travel times may be too small time wise?
