    Its over, this map is done. How many hours it took, I can't say so I will settle with ALOT. And now, only two more, larger continents to go

    Look for it in the finished map section. Now, i move onto the next nightmare, Khazardia, Everlandias Nortre.

    Thanks . The smaller regional maps are straight forward and easy to do but should I post them here or just put them straight into the finished maps section?

    It's entirely up to you. If they are in the finished map section then they will be considered for featured map.

    I love it and I sure hope this one ends up in the Cartographer's Choice area!

    I decided that I'm not going to do smaller regional maps. This style is good for large multi-country maps but when you break it out into regions it looks a little... off. I will go back and redo it someday but not until after I've gotten the hang of pasis's style. But until then I'm moving on.

    I've started to draw up the plans for Khazardia but first I wanted to experiment with the new climate types that would be present. Adallia for the most part was tropical because it sat in the wet zone on the equator. Khazardia however has four climate types (i simplified earth's climate type into four distinct ones). These types are...

    Tropical - For the areas close the equator.
    Arid/Dry - For the inland areas on the tropic lines. This includes deserts.
    Tundra/Wastes - The extreme north, doesn't always have to have snow for the waste only areas.
    Temperant (Is that the right word?) - Everywhere else.

    Loratolia is going to be the same, just exchange north for south. Temperant regions are going to the same as the Tropical style, just that the forests will be darker, grasses will be greener and marshes will be darker and less abundant. I'm still fiddling with Tundra/Wastes but I have done the Arid/Dry style below. I've included the main features I will use i.e. mountains, grasses/savanahs, marshes, forests and desert/arid wastes.

    What do you think? Should I distinguish between arid wastes and deserts?

    The word you're looking for is Temperate

    I would distinguish between deserts and wastes (even if just with a different color)

    That last example looks great already! Love the transistion of the desert to a more temperate climate. I would suggest planting some vegetation along the rivers in the desert in the final map. Water means life:
