    The mountains and the hills are patterns that I have on separate fill adjustment layers. So if I'm understanding you correctly I should put the opacity back to 100% and then place an overlay layer on top of them instead?

    NVM. I left the opacity where it was and added the overlay layer. It softened up the paper texture nicely.

    Glad that worked for you. I'd definitely recommend playing around with the different layer blending modes. It's a quick way of adjusting the overall look of a map until you get a feel that you like.

    Looking good so far - I particularly like the whirlwind!

    Updated the map. I added some minor locations, a new texture for the desert, and a color change after reading a little.

    This is very nice.

    I think the only thing that doesn't quite "work" for me is the color of the lakes and rivers (they seem a bit bright), but it's really more of a preference thing then a 'ding' against your work.

    Looking forward to more.

    Yeah, the blue throws me off as well since this is looking more like a parchment style map. Otherwise it's a very nice map.
