    This map looks good. A few nitpicks. The border around Zydved(?), in the North West, seems to be under some white peak layer. For me the color difference between the desert and the Tundra is too subtle. The parchment scroll for the legend has some pixilated jaggies, try adding a blurred mask to soften that.

    And putting 'snapshots' of the terrain types in the legend is genius! Repped.
    Thanks! That idea actually came about because there were others complaining about not knowing what terrain was suppose to be what. So, I added little squares on the legend to appease them.

    Fixed Zyvdred's border a bit. The blending option made the mountain bleed through the red too much. Blurred the parchment slightly, it's smoothed with enough jaggedness to remain believable. The desert and tundra I am going to leave alone, since they are actually a very similar terrain type, they just exist in two different climates. Since the tundra and the deserts are separated by plenty of other terrains and most of the cold/hot zones are labeled as such, I'm going to leave that one alone.

    (Hopefully) final version (unless someone has more tips :0 ):

    Looks real good. I like it a lot. My only nitpick would be the border of Almaria and where in a couple of spots it tends to blend with the water. Near "Q'Almar" and "Corban" in particular the coast practically disappears. Other than those extremely minor things, it's very well done.

    That's what I get for making a country' border blue which is predominantly surrounded by water. Changed border color to green.
