    I don't think the kingdom labels look bad. They're not distracting at all to me. Interested to see how the left panel shapes up. Looking good.

    Hi all, a fairly small update, with lots of dummy data for the moment. Added a scale, a compass rose, an overview inset featuring the surrounding countries and a list of shields. The shields on the left will be redrawn to better fit the style of the map, but this is basically the layout I'm going for. I intend to add some information for every principality (ruling house, capital, etc), but that's for later.

    I like the mini map!

    I don't know if it's my browser or your upload. But the picture is too small to read the text on the left and look at the shield in detail. I like what I can see though!

    Ow, you're right, hadn't seen that. Stupid tapatalk upload limit. The text on the left is a dummy version for the moment, by the way (just keeping you from being disappointed ). Here goes another attempt, this time using the browser.

    I love the color borders on this map! It's much easier to see the text now. I'm not sure why but I don't feel like the heraldry fist with the rest of the map. Your map seems aged but the coat of arms seem new? does that make sense?

    I agree with Domino. The bright colors of the heraldry don't match the faded colors of the map. I would also smooth the coastlines, the rivers and the cities labels to match the mountains/forests line work, and center the heraldry in the cartouche for the sake of aesthetic. Overall a nice work!

    You're right of course, I intend to eventually redraw them to better fit the rest of the map. This was just a quick drag 'n' drop of some images I already had floating around, it's all very preliminary. Just posting my last update before our ski trip .

    De-saturating the colors and adding a grunge texture to the heraldry would make them look much better IMO.

    I fully agree with Azelor about heraldry. And, yep, the mini map is a great idea!

    Yep, the mini-map is awesome and completely changes the perception of the land... for better. Don't drop it.
