    Only thing I can suggest you maybe change (and someone actually brought this up in another thread), is to reduce the number of fonts used. I believe the suggested limit is three.
    I thought about it last night and plan on making some major overhauls. I'll tone down the fonts and see how it looks. Thanks.

    I keep Ystraad up to benchmark my work and look for ways to improve my own stuff. I'm just glad I could contribute.

    - revamped the coast lines
    - started over on trees and mountains
    - added a a desert (no clue on symbols to add for deserts)
    - added hordeland symbols and changed text layout


    still to do
    - start over on Larano blow up. Use new border, make it interesting and hopefully make it mesh well with the over all look.
    - add more titles (few cities, add ruins, add a sea/ocean or two)
    - add symbols to barrow island chain in south east
    - revisit amount of fonts used
    - revisit actual names used

    Very nice. Love the celtic borders. For deserts symbols perhaps a few cacti (sp?) and some cattle skulls...maybe a dune or two?

    I agree on the fonts, try to pin yourself down to one or two and use font size and bold to change it up a little.

    All in all a nice peice of art.

    I'll add some cacti and work on the fonts, thanks.

    Completed since last update

    - Normalized the fonts - used Trajan Pro for most of it. It lacks a old world feel so I'll revisit that.
    - Redid Larano Blow up and border. I think it meshes better with the over all map now.
    - Added Cacti to desert region
    - added symbols to Barrow Island region

    To do List

    - Add Rivers
    - Add more Cities and Regions
    - Revisit font choice

    I really like the different "clan?" icons for the Hordelands.

    All in all, very nice. A great improvement on an already great-looking map!
