    Wip Citystate with waterways

    Citystate with waterways-citymap.jpg

    Slightly inspired by an old city map of Arnhem in the Netherlands, but with more water and more halflings.

    I have an old map of Arnhem in my "inspiration" folder I really like what you've got going here. (and more halflings is a bonus too..)

    This is nice, my only suggestion would be to try and orient the buildings with the angles of the roads.

    For this style of map those buildings are perfect. I would just turn them so the long ends face the roads. I like the name (being partial to cities that begin with River...)

    The map just gets better as I scroll down!

    Funny. It sorta reminds me of a futuristic Venice...

    Overall, great job so far!
