I think i can call this one finished (finally!). I imagined this was going to be a quick map though after a few minor setbacks (mistakenly merging certain layers then saving, without backing up... you know the drill; going on holiday; and getting flu twice) I managed to recover some lost work and move on to get this finished.
The Haréshk is a dichotomous place, its idyllic terrain and beautiful hills and grasslands forming a stark contrast to the politicking of its regions and their rulers; kings and queens and their countless lords and advisors. The place is somewhat antiquated, still holding onto traditions that the world's major powers (amongst them the two Korachani empires and the Secular Parthian Republic chief amongst them) consider to be antiquated, such as knightly traditions and a feudal state. The region is renowned for its myriad flags and heraldic devices and the angelic and draconic motifs (both attributed to its religion) that fill its art and culture.

EDIT: it seems as though the resizing of my full-size Jpeg (using bicubic sharper) has left the image looking more saturated than it should, though it's still a passable representation of the real thing
