    Thanks Viking, Hobehobbe and Arsheesh!
    Finding some old parchments of the chronicles of Oraven, I recently discovered that the Red Moors made its name, not from the color of the moors but from the sea color that surrounding the area. I didn't find the real explanation about this strange color : according to some inhabitants beliefs, the sea is made of some old gods blood after a great ancien war while the priests of Monshra tells that the red is actually due to the reflection of Ehrun, the red moon. Some fools even theorize that the sea would get its strange color from some redish luminescent algae in its depths.
    Whatever the reason, I had to fix it I also worked on coastlines and added rivers.

    Look at that, Max full on in worldbuilding mode Nice ideas, btw!
    Although, to be honest, map wise, i liked the old color better. I'm much more into realistic maps than fantastical ones (as far as geological and geographical features are concerned, that is).

    This comes along very nicely. The new mountains are really good.
    The red sea is very distracting, especially in zoomed-in mode.
    You have some pretty cool names on this map.

    Thanks! I still have mixed thoughts about the red color. I will keep it red but I might modify it or tone it down/desaturate it when more of the lands will be done.

    I think toning down the red sounds good, I like the idea but it is a bit distracting as it is. Otherwise, just as fantastic as always

    Amazing map, Max! But then again, so is all your work! Still, I do believe this map looks like it's going to be one of your best. Keep up the good work!
