I guess I should have clarified everything sooner. What I'm about to explain is going to be strange for some. First off, the map I'm making is just a recreation of a video game map. I'm very aware of the weird layout of the river on the southern and the northern continent. But, since I'm trying to be faithful to the actual map itself, it has to stay like this. I guess I can show a portion of the southern map. It's not mine; but this is the closest one I could find since I couldn't find the actual in-game map. It's on the bottom, by the way.

Well, I finally have time to post my map. This time, I'm messing around with plateau. To be honest, I don't know if I'm even doing it right. Should I make the ridges much smaller to make the over-head view look a little more realistic?
This site is pretty amazing. I stumbled upon your link looking up One Piece maps and decided to register.
I decided to look up Suikoden on a whim as I've always thought the geography of the universe is very interesting.
Awesome stuff. Looking forward to your next iteration.
Overall, I personally like the land forms a lot. Some folks may comment on the repetitive water, but it doesn't bother me at all. I think this is a great map.
Aside from the River issue - which doesn't bother me so much, because they could just be channels rather then rivers - I get the feeling this is a 'polar projection'. I think it may be the icecaps on the northern contient throwing me off.
Otherwise, very pretty.
River Police? Theres River Police? Where can I sign up?!?? Rivers are one of my pet peeves, especially when it comes to things like Eragon which is a best selling book and has a HUGE River flaw in it (*stupid voice* "hu hu theres a lake on top of the mountain range and twos rivers flow out of it on opposite sides hu hu" NO... Just NO)
Anyways on to your actual piece, criticising your work here not the land since you didn't make it up yourself, I think it's really good, it has a nice realist look to it. I'm interested in seeing how it will improve, especially since it's a Fan Map.
