    I think I like the last one the most, it looks more coherent. The border is really nice too!

    And… feel better, Ney

    Thanks Lingon. Been dosing up on DayQuil and vitamins, so hopefully I'll be able to kick this soon...

    I've been flipping back and forth through the different versions of the desert and I was leaning more towards the desaturated version, but still wasn't 100% sure. Thanks for letting me know which one you like best. I think that's decided then...desaturated it is!

    Th last version (dark/desaturated) fits the map dark feeling better imho. Also I would work on the too saturated blue of the rivers aswell. As for the borders they're nice but I would work the cartouche with some similar elemnts for the sake of consistency.

    Caenwyr - Thanks so much! And thanks for the suggestion to change the desert!

    Max - Thanks for the advice on the cartouche! You're right, it doesn't fit with the border at all. I'll change that! The rivers are just placeholders right now...they'll look completely different when I do the final, proper version, and they definitely won't be a bright blue like what you see now. I think I'm pretty close to finishing the terrain, so the rivers will be coming up soon.

    Okay, latest update:

    * Edited the border a bit
    * Changed the title text and cartouche
    * Added icons and a Legend
    * Finished all the roads and paths
    * Did a little bit more texture work on the terrain (upper-left barren region, and the southern swampy region)

    I'm sure I'll make some more minor edits/changes before it's all completely done, but I think I'm going to call the terrain finished now, so I can move on to the rivers and lava next.

    EDIT: This version is slightly larger (50% resolution) than what I've been previously posting.

    Here's the rivers/lakes done. Still not entirely sure how I want to do the lava...

    EDIT: Just realized I forgot to do the rivers at the bottom. Urgh! I need to get some sleep...I always make stupid mistakes when I'm tired.
