Koolbak, it sounds like you're getting a little too used to unlimited fortification?
This map is REALLY buggy. I mean, I've found like 5 so far. Your xml file needs some serious revisions.
As far as the actual graphic design of the map, I think it works, for the most part. It reminds me a bit of parchment, like an old treasure map or scripture or the like. Don't listen to marvaddin. He's just mad because his map suffers from the opposite problem: Too much color. Besides, he openly admits to having designed his map in Microsoft Paint, so he really should keep his mouth shut.
