    If you're going for the Radigast city of the Flanaess, the lake is the Nyr Dyv, also known as the Lake of Unknown Depths.

    Well, you've found both "mistakes" - I made up the name of the lake, because I couldn't remember Nyr Dyv, and yes - the title font. The title font looks wrong, because it's a geometric 1920s font often used in the 1970s, while all the rest is a digitization of a hand carved 17th century font. I was tired and didn't feel like searching around for an appropriate display font for the title.

    And yes, I'll do some farms and fields and such ... but I'll wait to do the legend first, so I don't end up doing a bunch of features that end up being covered up!

    There we go, more or less finished-ey ... The legend got quite long, it was a bit of a struggle to fit in all the names on the maps, so numbers it had to be!

    Great map indeed! The paper has stains etc on it and it would be great to have the ageing on the texts too. I think it would add authenticity to this piece even though it is fantastic already.

    That is awesome! I really like it.

    The only thing I even wondered about where the walls...would they look better aged or maybe with a stone type texture?

    It's still great just like it is.

    @Pasis - agreed, though I'd have to run a screen effect on just the fonts. The ageing was just an afterthought for posting, to be honest, since the commission was for an un-aged map

    @Jaxilon - well a stone texture wouldn't add anything to my mind, but yes, I should have run a screen pass to lighten some of the blacks. Like I said above, it wasn't a priority, but I really should have taken a minute more!
