what is it with trees today? Now you're barking up them? D:
Seriously, though... I think 4 looks like what you would see on a map on a wall in a military/government office, or in a boardroom or something.
6 is pretty.. the others I don't really like... but... couldn't you do like...
Know how those cities look on the maps that use the mosaic filter on gimp to randomize the buildings?
What if there was one of those "houses" but it was square, like a wall, with little dots in it to look like a mini-city?
(no idea how to draw that at the moment, or even if it would be a good idea, just thought it would look cool/different...)
or you could use like... little shields with the ruling families ...
I can't even label my own stuff yet
Pretty map, though!!
