    Post [Region 1][Map 13] Groam - By Torq

    Hi all. This is just the beginning. I managed to get a start today. Its been amazing how much what has gone on between people on this forum is already influencing the way I'm thinking about the map.

    Sure, it done mostly in Gimp so far. The river paths are done in Inkscape and I will use Inkscape for the labelling when the time comes.

    I'm so jealous of your mapping skills... I wish I could do that

    Torq - Really nice start. I agree with Airith.

    I like the colors and the general feel of it. But I do have one critique: The rivers really stick out, so much so that they almost punched me in the face. Specifically I'm referring to their shape--big wide curves--which looks really out of place when compared to the coastlines and the rest of the features.

    I was going to mention the rivers as well....could be because I don't know the scale. The lines look a bit too ..... bezier....

    I was playing in inkscape with a way to break them up. most meandering river are a bit fractal in flood plains, big curves made of small curves....these do look regular. No good suggestions/solutions from me, however

    Something I really like is how the kind of depressed gothic coloring fits with the whole Plaguelans motif. Bravo!
