    Default Florbords, a small town

    The small town of Flörbörds, which is a constant in almost every Fantasy game I've ever played in. It is where the heroes are always from.

    Made in about 2 hours.

    I like the name. Wordplay on "floorboards"? The first town to not have dirt floors in most of the buildings

    Other than the colors being a bit over-saturated for my tastes, it's nicely done.

    Agreed, so here's an updated version with a few changes.

    If that's the Old Bridge, where is the new bridge? Or was it named for Mister Old?

    Maybe it's an old bridge. Been there so long that you'd have to go back almost a dozen generations to find someone who was around when it was built, whereas all the buildings are relatively new in comparison. (This will actually be the case if the buildings are wood and the bridge is stone)

    I really like the effect for the wooded areas. Would you be willing to give a brief explanation of how you achieved it?

    Updated the map a bit... New roof texture and variety of colors. Modified Old's Bridge.

    Oh and the trees were simply a round brush with the scatter and size jitter turned up. Then a light texture overlay and stroke.
