    I always liked your art-sy style. The only "complaint" i have with this map are the mountains...they do not look very mountain-y...more like hills if you ask me.

    Btw, Jared, any chance you can show us the Exalted map for the new 3rd Edition? I only saw i tiny map on the KS page and i hope we'll soon see a big one where we can appreciate the details

    Well, real Ireland does not have many "true" mountains, does it? So the map is more or less accurate in that respect.

    On the other hand, this is not real Ireland AND the labels beside those "hills" read mountains. So don't make any assumptions you can not support

    Mountains doesn't mean high peaks or huge range all the time

    This is a map. You abstract landmarks into something one should recognize. Hills and mountains need different symbols...no matter how high or huge the peaks are in real life. Otherwise your abstractions fall flat and your map will be read wrong (or at least, if you have labels, there's a disconnect between visual and pictographic level). If that's ok for you guys, fine for you. I feel the need to point it out in a thread where one is asked for feedback and critic
    And to be honest, i don't see the need to comment on other members' critics. Stay on topic and comment on the map...not the comments on the map
