    Can you distort the hedge mazes and the pools so they follow the curves and aren't rectangles? I think anyone who build a round city would go so far with the decorative elements in it...

    I tried to distort the hedge mazes, but I could never get them to look good (at least not to me) - I'll have to give it another shot.

    In order to do so, you will probably have to use the pen tool and make a path, sort of like tracing parts and estimating other parts. There is another way, much longer, but with a more precise end result...use that big ole round brush in decreasing steps to produce a series of rings, then make a series of lines radiating out from the center. This should leave you with a circular grid so then just go back and erase the parts that need erasing to make the maze. Third way is to just find some circular mazes and scan em in and resize em

    If you put it in a large enough canvas you should be able to run it through a polar map to get it bent. I tried it in gimp and got acceptable results.

    I am liking this map. Reminds me of a city map I envisioned for my old campaign world around 1980 or so.

    There has got to be something cliched about a city map that NK was thinking about back in 1980. I just can't quite put my finger on it...

    OK here's todays update...

    1) Adjusted the pattern overlay on the walls and bridges
    2) Tried to give the walls a little more definition (I think I succeeded )
    3) Added the Nar'Quessil (Tower of Enchantment)
    4) Redid the reflecting pools and moved them to the 2nd circle
    5) Moved the hedge mazes to the 2nd circle and added some different trees
    6) Moved buildings from 2nd to 3rd circle
    7) Added glows to "crystal towers"
    Added the 'floating' temple of the Seldarine
    9) Some clean up of 'artifacts'

    I think that's it.
