    Wip WIP: Elduum & the Turathian Peninsula

    Sooooo I thought I'd give mapmaking a whirl when my father in law surprised us with a visit and took the kiddos off my hands. I chose the antique style that Ascension details in this tutorial, because the idea is that the players are looking at a map that is 400ish years old and while it does have useful information on it, they need to take care not to trust it too much because stuff has changed.

    So, here we go. It's a little bit better than this one, right? Any feedback would be appreciated!

    Looking pretty good so far. No river infractions (the bane of all new cartographers )

    I think I would define the political borders a bit more, maybe put a slightly-darker inner glow. *shrugs*

    A larger higher rez version would be nice too, the labels are a bit difficult to read.

    Yeah, I agree with SG that the political boundaries could use some kind of edge.

    I also like the water and the lines outlining the shores, there's something different about them that I kinda' like. The shore itself might benefit from having a bolder line to differentiate it from the other lines. Also maybe do away with a couple of the furthest out lines to make more room for the "Sea Labels".

    Not sure if there is a term for those "outlines", but hopefully I described what I was referring to well enough.

    Overall nice work though. Keep it up.
