all the text on the map is clean and crisp but that one has a weird 3dish effect that not only makes it stand apart but also very hard to read.
i assume you have 1 text layer and then multiplied it several times and shifted it down-right 1px each time to get that 3d effect.
you should keep just the top most layer and add a simple drop shadow to it. it will make it much easier to read and numbers won't clash into each other (3 on top of 6) and you won't have weird letters either (the B or L or Y)

3d text especially when it is small is very hard to read. also that text is the only 3d element on this map. everything else is flat.
in my opinion it's completely out of place (just like the +2 on the left side)
also i'm not sure where the 3d effect has been discussed since this is the first time you've done it. frankly the previous version wasn't perfect but was much better than this one. i'm talking about this: http://i155.photobucket.com/albums/s282 ... 7Scd-1.png

Granted, the "Judges can bombard..." was a little hard to read at a glance, but you could read it if you gave your eyes a few seconds. It's not a highway sign that you have to see at a glance, where black on yellow contrast is the sort of thing you need. Said text is also not something you need to look at again and again, like the territory names, so I think it could go back to what you had.

The new text, although nice does look a little weird. But I can live with it.
Small map only - bottom right you have T.C. Town Common. The second m is an n.
Rev Higginson cross on both is pixelated. You have the other icons in the township at a north - south orientation. Why not the cross. This will also solve the pixel problem.
Rev Hale cross in the large has a small black dot in it. Is it there for a reason?
Love the map and cannot wait to play.
