    Great map Diamond! I especially like the simple and efficient iconic job (both landmarks and settlements) and the idea of using miniatures transfers for the shields! (though they're a bit blurry). Unfortunately, can't rep you atm

    Lol...you're killing me Diamond First the super abstract triangle/pyramid mountains (it seems you outgrew them, yay! ) and now the kind-of-triangle trees....will it never end?! I think you were a greek mathematician with a fixation on the triangle in one of your early lives

    In serious-mode : As always, i dig the landshape and the coloration is very fitting, imo. The mountains are nice and simple. The tribe-heraldry is cool (are these still those same symbols you borrowed from a game?).

    Kind of off-topic - I hope you'll get back to Panhartha and the Great Divide (fantasy version)? Really like to see them finished (ok, i'll be honest, i'd like to see all your unfinished maps finished but one has to prioritize ).

    Very nice map! I love the color palette (and would have seen the same fine nuances of the land for the glaciers). The shape of the land is - as usual - very to my taste (the Jundai steppe is a constant in you maps, isn't it? ). I agree with - Max - those shields are very pretty but a bit blurry... and also, I sadly can't rep you yet...

    Yep, shields are not quite up to snuff. Will try not to be lazy next time and draw them myself.

    It's as bad as when I was really into alternate history and every map I did somehow included an independent Burgundy.

    that is a very readable map for a fantasy style, the abstract way to represent forests is unusual and refreshing!

    Very lovely work Diamond. The shields appear somewhat out of focus sadly, but I really dig the overall style. Sadly it looks as if I cannot rep you atm.

    Cheers,

    Oooh, nice one! It has a sort of art deco look, because of the icon style and the colors, which is really cool!

    That's a fine map Diamond. I really like the color palette you used for this. It's really nice and soft and different.
    I don't think there's a thing about it that I don't like. Great stuff.
