    Small typo in the header, maybe. It's supremacy, according to dictionary.com, at least.

    The mountains are much better, but could still use a tiny bit of mixing up - first thing I zoomed in on was triplets in the lower right corner. I wonder if distorting them a bit could help?

    Map looks very nice other'n that.

    Not bad. I have a couple of concerns.

    1] It should appear to be able to be traversed by land if need be.

    2] Won't the layer stroke mess that up?

    3] How did you achieve that effect?

    Cheers

    Cool thanks, will fix that right away.

    I understand, but the mountains stay the way they are now I am tired of them already

    That said thanks for the idea of having those three called "The Triplets" by the locals since they look so much alike

    Map looks very nice other'n that.
    Thanks

    Can't blame you for hating mountains

    Any chance you want to mix up your forests a bit?

    Nope that was a style choice. Each forest uses a different type of tree for it's figure.

    As for the "Triplets" if you look again, the three I think you mean, the middle one is different and the other two are twins.

    Really digging this map, Aslan - although at first glance I thought it was Antartica!

    I'm digging the Neptune-esque woodcut. Where'd you find him?

    Okay here's an idea I had for the Saltmarsh/Floodplain.

    I am sure it violates all kinds of river police rules, but I think it conveys what I want it to convey.

    Thoughts?

    Dude, thanks for that link. It's the motherlode! I just might lose myself there for a few days.
