    Hello

    I started with Kraken Island and I wanted to try out the Treasure Island Style, because I haven't used this style before and the island seemed well suited for this purpose although it is probably a bit large for this style (the scale bar has fixed numbers which only go up to 4 miles...).
    Unfortunately the style does not have many symbols and the Schley Ink symbols don't work, because they are not transparent. So I had to draw most of the symbols by myself using the drawtools that come with CC3+.

    This is what I have so far.

    I'll give that island a miss - I have a bad feeling about all the baddies lurking by.

    Well, it's no tropical paradise. One doesn't visit this island to make holidays but to find treasure.

    And get killed, obviously. I'll send my minions instead! :D

    Parchment maps are always cool! :-)

    Yeah, thats a bad place... rumors of land crawling octopi, very large ones.

    Very nice, I really like it!

    You might experiment with making the radial cartouche increasingly more transparent. It also might not hurt if the island broke the cartouches circle - it might make things feel a bit more integrated.

    Getting killed is ideally not the purpose of a visit to Kraken Island - but it might happen anyway. So, sending minions would probably be a good choice.

    Crawling octopi are a nice yet frightening idea. Thank you for that JimP.

    @Topdecker: Thank you. Honestly, I have no clue how I could make the nav lines increasingly more transparent...

    So here's my next update. I've mostly worked on the Idea Jim gave me.
    I hope you guys like it.

    Ah, the famous air krakens of Fargoth. How I miss them. More dangerous than the giant flying man-o-wars that dragged their tentacles across many a city near the coast, but mostly just due to their intelligence and ability to go other than as the wind blew them.

    Good stuff! I really like this style. It's a nice, clean map!

    Thank you.

    I'll probably add a bit more details (shades) to the mountain symbols but otherwise I'll leave it as it is, i think.
