    Love the text style. Very nice indeed, and is that top-left lighting I see? How the mighty are fallen...

    Great colour scheme and some truly lovely mountains.

    T -- sometimes it's ok to go along with the conventions but the man will never hold me back, he may take my life but he'll never take my sun position! At least it'll keep me from hearing a bunch of posts about things looking down instead of up.

    I had switched my main nation font from Bolton to Lightfoot but with RedEpic's use of it I switched it again so as not to look like a copycat (love that font tho so maybe next time). It's now Folkard (a similar one is called The Longest Journey). It's not properly kerned so I had to fix that manually but it looks like I forgot a spot...if you look at Bhyllith you'll see a big space between the i and the t. I took out a bunch of town labels cuz I didn't want to over clutter it. I made the fonts quite big cuz I was thinking that I'd shrink the map down 50%. If this full size one looks ok at a reduced quality then I'll stay at this size and go back and shrink down the fonts. Then I can put in labels for other things like mtns, valleys, lakes, etc. I won't label all of the rivers cuz there are a ton of em and that'd kill my map.

    This looks realy great. I'd say this is my favourite out of all your maps. I love the style and the palette. Great stuff.

    More great stuff Oh Ascendant One!

    But what are those weird colored blobs at the top? Giant colored icebergs? (j/k)

    I agree with the over all comments of it being beautifully crafted!
    I especially like the rivers, the fact that they look like part of the lad mass and not something that's laying over it.
    The texture is great, it reminds me of the old school maps that are "in relief", actual 3D model of the maps of counties. I'll post an image of what I'm trying describe but not making a very good job of it. It
    I tip my hat to you!

    Nope, no comments. Stunning work!
    Your cartouche (as I think it's called) is especially beautiful. And I like the special features on the map, like the canyon and the vulcano.

    Here's an unlabeled version for anyone who wants to use it for a personal game.

    That is another spectacular map from you! So very beautiful. Wow. And I can't even give you any rep
