Help with a number of different things for a regional map
I'm working on a map for a Role Playing setting in a fictional Bronze Age world with some magic/supernatural stuff thrown in (think the Iliad, mixed with Epic of Gilgamesh, meets Conan, meets A Song of Ice and Fire). I've got the map pretty much done. I'm only lacking in a couple of things: cities/settlements, and names of landmarks.
I'm pretty good with thinking of names itself, and there's a few more things I'll have to do to complete the map (legend, clean edges, compass rose, etc.), however I'm stuck on some things and I'd appreciate some help with them.
- Font suggestions (anything that would fit the setting, but is also readable. I don't really want to use Papyrus for example.)
- Naming styles (i.e. should I have a square background to place the names on or should I just place it directly onto the map?)
- Good city/settlement locations (I can see some places, but another set of eyes would be handy. Feel free to take the map and mark it up if you choose.)
- Icon suggestions (Should I go with simple shapes; square, circle, etc. or should I go with something more stylistic?)
And so, the map:
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
