    Wip Evedalaia Regions WIP

    Here is my latest WIP, instead of working on large maps I've broken a country down into several small maps so i can do large detailed maps of small areas. I've broken down my country of Evedalaia into three smaller maps, this is the southern region of Evedalaia, the Rainlands, an isthmus (is that the right word?) covered in forests and marshes and known for it's vast amounts of wet weather.

    I've done most of the map and I'm doing the final details now, I wanted to run it by you guys before i mark it down as complete.

    Looks pretty good.

    Is it supposed to be "The Northern Marshes" or "Marches"?

    This looks really good so far, the detail of the costs is good, and there is a real sense of cohesion in the place names. The only thing that stands out is the course of the Oda river close to its source. It seems that the river goes the long way around to reach the ocean rather than flowing from the mountains directly into that small bay by Adabas.

    Thnx guys

    @SG - It is supposed to be Northern Marshes but I'm thinking of chaing it the two marshes into the Northern and Southern Rains to tie in more with the name of the map.

    @Sular - The Oda River would have emptied into the lonely sea but i figured the red wind hills would have diverted it towards the east. Also I needed to have a feature on which the southern border with Odadalaia would sit and a river was great for that. To better show the divertion caused by the red wind hills i'm extending the western tips of the hills south to block the river.

    *Thwacks himself in the head* Ah the hills, right. The hills I conveniently forgot to notice. However, that does raise the possible point that the hills in question are somewhat faintly defined. I don't think I would have picked them out but for the label. Possibly making them a little more distinct might help things.

    I like it! You're darkening border areas to focus on the Rainlands works, but going with a lighter touch on the ocean areas (i.e., letting more of the light blue shine throught) would add some nice contrast against the greens.

    Already begun work on the next region of Evedalaia. This is the western region of Evedalaia, "The Frontier Lands".
