    Nice work. I think you don't really need to fill up the spaces more than you have. It really feels like there's a world down there, with lots of potential.

    I think the only thing you might want to consider is doing something with the font colors - the black lettering at times is especially difficult to read. Maybe a slight glow around it to help readability.

    Map On!
    Hi Steel!

    I take it you mean the names of mountains and rivers with the lettering? Because the city-names do have glow around them

    I will try it out and thanks for your input!

    Yup that's what I meant - the city and other names are fine, but there are spots where the text for the mountains and rivers almost completely disappears into the terrain.

    It's a lovely map and something for me to be jealous about
    After looking at your latest version something struck me: the "Mount Karou Area" in the top left corner looks like another mountain label. I think it's the title of your map though? If so, I would give it some distinctions. Maybe work it into a border or legend.

    That is a very nice-looking map, and I agree with the notion that you shouldn't clutter up the 'empty' spaces. It looks quite natural the way it is.

    Is a "messanger" the same thing as a "messenger," or is that on purpose?

    Check. I filled in the empty spaces with names for the cities

    Typo. Need to remedy that soon

    Thanks for pointing it out!
