    Map Negune - Any Tips?

    Greetings and salutations! I came across this forum whilst looking for some mapmaking information. If you'll have me, I would very much look forward to learning what there is to learn, and perhaps even sharing a thing or two with the community along the way.

    This is Negune, the continent on which my current D&D game takes place:

    This is the first continent map that I've really spent any significant amount of time on.

    It was created by ripping up pieces of paper, and dropping them on a sheet of glass from a height of 1ft, then putting a piece of paper on top of the scraps, turning on a light behind the glass, and tracing the shadow the scraps made. I don't know what it is about role playing games, but something about working on them compels me to do everything by hand.

    I'm pretty happy with how this map turned out, but it has a few rather obvious deficiencies, not the least of which is the relative lack of variety in the terrain. It also suffers from a failure on my part to fully understand how mountains and rivers form.

    I would greatly appreciate any suggestions or helpful tips, though for the moment I primarily just wanted to share what I've created. I see you've got a "tips" forum, which I look forward to scouring.

    EDIT: Oh damn. There I've gone and ruined my first impression by posting in the wrong forum. I had meant to place this in Regional/World Mapping, but apparently posted it in Tutorials/How-To. I am dreadfully sorry. There doesn't appear to be an option for me to delete this post, so I am at the mercy of any wandering moderators, friendly enough to move it for me.
