    Hey! That's what I meant about the fog! Yeah, now you're cooking. That looks a lot better.

    You might add another island or two, but have them (much) lower than the others, almost entirely obscured by the fog (with a top layer like you had it before, going over the surface, but also "cut in half" by your background layer of fog). It may lend some depth.

    About the nest, I just meant as a small, out-of-the-way decoration, less than one square in size.

    That mid-level fog really did make a big difference! Thank you!

    With the nest, I thought you meant something really big, for an encounter with some type of creature.

    I'm not really sure if I want to add any more rocks. I'm liking the layout I've got at the moment, but I'll test out a few extra ones and see how it looks.

    Here's the new "rising fog" version. I want it to be obvious that it's starting to rise above the top/ground level (so players will be like: Oh crap! *cough cough* This isn't good! ), but not so dense that the overall brightness gets bumped up too much.

    looks fantastic and the tree is much better now. I think perhaps the chains are a bit to mossy - if the rocks are floating here and there at least where the chains grate against one another the moss would disappear.
    Have some rep with my longsword of pretty cool repping

    Haha! Thanks.

    Okay, I lowered the opacity of the moss a bit, and did a soft erase where the links join.

    Any last suggestions before I call this done?

    Thanks Sharpe.

    Alrighty...I'm going to call this done. And I want to say thank you SO much to everyone who took the time to comment and offer suggestions. I really, really appreciate it! This would have been very mediocre (and I probably would have ended up scrapping it) if not for your help!

    Man, this map looks amazing!

    Seriously, it is one of the coolest battlemap I have seen! Did you do the rocks yourself? These look amazing...

    Thanks very much!

    The rocks were a free resource from deviantART. You can see the full credits list here: Miasma Summit.

    Reminds me of Facing Worlds, what a great idea. I personally love this idea.
