    Well, I needed a little break from the Manor House, and so finished a map of Themisia I had started a while ago. It is a kingdom precariously sandwiched between the powers of the Leonder Imperium and the Irisian City States, which have been on the verge of war for some years now. It is likely that the king will ask for Irisian protection from the expected invasion by Leonder, and diplomatic efforts are under way. Needless to say, the greedy Irisians are looking to annex Themisia in all but name, a fact King Alexios Staminder is only too aware of.
    In addition, the wilderness of the Moliazo Hills contains a ruined fortress (Hezlo Fort), which is the cover for a continent wide secret organization aimed at controlling portal gates to other worlds (Earth in particular). More of that later when I finish the Hellenic portal map, which will go here.
    So here it is - perhaps a little more tidying, perhaps a nautical/sea monster themed frame. Please help as per usual with your critique and suggestions.
    And Dogtag -- the mermaid is there! :D

    Here is my (hopefully) final version. I chose a bloody military theme. Critique please.

    Might I suggest you use a different color (or colour for you people you can't spell) for the text of the different Polities? And the "peach" border color doesn't feel very "Game of Thronish."

    Good idea about the colour (pity that the US can neither spell nor vote correctly, but there it is... :) ). Will think about the border, but I do see what you mean.

    There is a nice "blood" bitmap that might look good. Here is Blood 3_ca125

    Blood 3 :)

    I like burgundy colours. Burgundy and pale cream, maybe with two shades of blue towards the blue-green side of pure blue.

    See? Its another new-born colour scheme just begging to be mapped as something pretty.

    We are all waiting on pins and needles waiting for you to use your new COLOR scheme on something :-)

    Jerry, you really shouldn't capitalize your spelling errors. 3:)

    Just trying to ensure that blind people who would use Peach as a border color could read my comment .. .. ..

    Final map. Lightened the fill suggested by Jerry (which was a very good suggestion), and changed the colours of the borders and text for Leonder and Irisia.
    I will submit this later today, when i have completed the Map Notes.
    I want to do a castle and village based on Dunluce Castle I saw in Northern Ireland last year. Probably on the South coast somewhere - Myktolos castle.

    Much better!

    And that reconstruction of Dunluce Castle and Town is a seriously pretty map.

    Lovely... colours! :P

    Thank you :)

    Colours are (and always have been) very important to me.
