    Wip WIP - Schataria Revisited

    Thought i'd take a short break from my old style map and work on something the player will actually see. I plan on using the same style for all the maps right down to the cities so this is going to be experimental as well as a time saver in the long run.

    A good basic style, and the colours aren't bad. Are you going to do a lot of these?

    Anyhow, a couple of questions:

    What is the general scale of the map, and where is it relative to the rest of the world?

    This is the western hemisphere of the world. I'd say its around the size of Europe. I plan on making maps for each country and probably each major city.

    Trying to give this map some character. too muted? too grungy? Next, I plan on jazzing up the cartouche and the empty spaces in the water.

    I don't think it is, but I like muted and grungy, so maybe I'm biased

    Looks kind of dark to me. If I were going to be referring to it much, I'd adjust it. These things vary by monitor, though. If you're going to print it as a handout, you'll actually need a hard copy to look at, because that'll be another slightly different look.
