So I was cruising along on the map for my current RPG group and it was turning out just how I wanted for a change, right up until it came time to put down markers for towns. I usually do much simpler maps with little house icons but that's not in keeping with the style of this one. I tried several different things but feel like I've been staring at it too long as everything I've tried is beginning to look increasingly wrong. I marked out what I've tried so far, I like #6 the best but it is a bit hard to see, #3 seem the second least horrible. Are any of these appropriate or am I barking up the wrong tree? Suggestion greatly welcome.
