    If anyone is wondering, I used a .5mm Bic pen for this

    The map is the main region where I am setting a play by post game...
    Wow. Very cool!

    I love antique and hand-drawn maps.

    [following comment meant in the most positive way possible] Did anyone else get slightly dizzy looking at this map? Something about the off-axis tilt to the mountains makes them very interesting and stylizes the map in a grreat way. It reminded me of the sick feeling I get in an Omnimax theatre- something ain't right with the horizon. In the best possible way

    Yeah, and somehow it feels like the rivers on the left flow to upstream in some places

    Hmm, I'll have to look at that. The area to the left is supposed to flatten to broad plains, and since the rivers were hand drawn and scanned, moving them will be a bit rough since I really can't reproduce hand drawn with pen with my stylis.

    Can try though, wonderful thing layers are!

    And thanks for the comments!

    Don't take too much pressure from our comments.. if they don't bother you, then just move along an work ahead with the map you already have (and if the rivers do bother you also, then you can try to mask some of the "problem" areas with forests so the river gets hidden beneath them.
