    Map Atlindowa

    Well, I've just completed this map, working from about 9:00 pm until around 6:50 am. Lots of hard work went into this, and I'm mostly happy with it, but there are some things I do want to change, but they will have to wait for now (that being a nicer looking border, perhaps one that has an A,B,C,D,etc. grid. Though I've been unable to find any, and I'm not sure how to go about making one, so if someone could give me a point in the right direction there, that would be awesome. The other thing I'm thinking on changing because it sort of looks ugly to me is the legend key. Maybe go with a more complex shape of some sort, and maybe a different texture for it too.)

    Other things I am going to have to add are some names for the rivers (and fix the placement of the names on the lakes), but I've sort of run out of names to think of for now, and I'm quite tired after doing this. And an additional thing I would potentially like to add, but it might make it quite a bit busy, are some heraldic devices at the cities. I'm still debating on that or not (let me know what you think of that idea).

    Special thanks goes Freodin, Korash, and Diamond for their previous critique on my Kelailles map. I hope this has shown that your feedback was well taken and appreciated.

    Now for the credits.

    As an aside, if you've seen the first map I've ever posted here on Cartographer's Guild, that too was Atlindowa, but that particular creation of mine has gone through so many different iterations/cities added/names changed, because I've ultimately never been happy on the way it looked or the style of the map; until now that is.
