I like the font style, but it looks almost too fairy tale-like or childish with the size changes. Could you perhaps find something of a similar style that doesn't do the size-changing thing?
I disagree 100%. I think the font works well for the style of the map. This is the first comment that I remember seeing with dissatisfaction towards the font style.

There were already waves in the water. I just added them to the lakes too.the.killing.44 wrote:There are small waves in the water…
As edbeard said this map was voted on for what it looked like. No textures were altered (or will be) so the purple gray region will stay the way it is.pamoa wrote:the.killing.44 wrote:I think most are fine, but Death Marsh without water in it?

Naming a bonus region off of a territory will not necessarily help people understand what goes where. The bonus names need to explain the location by themselves and with the help of colors.djak. wrote:More important is that you can't easily figure out the continents if you're color-blind, so how about naming them to something similar to the most strategically important country in it: Hubland, Cynici, Hamptons, Vegas, Nektar, Avallonis, Bad Country?

I like The lost realm as well. But if we do the Lost REALM then Dragon Realm is not going to be a bonus group.maritovw wrote:I like most of MrBenn's suggestions and thus give my support to them... but still the map's name should be changed.. "Midgard - The 7 Kingdoms" still isn't in concordance with the bonus names... how about "Midgard - The realm of old" or "Midgard - The lost realm" ??
SWEET NAMES MrBenn. I think that in conjunction with teh Title change and the Dragons moving to Fire Mountains (If people like that) we are set. I will use your suggestions for territories as well (although some of the names you don't like will stay but just get moved to anther place)MrBenn wrote:Icy Tundra ->Glacial Shires
This is the region with names that bug me the most... Prodigal, Absentia, Bad Lands and Hallogallo... blurg!
I'd suggest going with names that sounds made up, but are related to glaciers in some way... Drumlin, Moraine, Ogive and Esker
North Desert -> Northern Plains
Personally I think that this sounds a lot easier on the ear, and gives a nod to the region of the same name from the former Middle Earth map. I'm not too keen on Hubcity and Highlands as terr names... there's no reason we couldn't keep Withered Heath, Iron Hills, Northern Waste from the old map??
Golden Fields -> The Lost Realm? Goldenfield?
Liegon to me looks like a misspelling of Legion... the names of territories here don't really do anything for me... particularly not Onset, Avalon, Shell... once the region name is agreed/decided, I'll have another think about alternative terr names for the ones that irritate me... How about shades of yellow, or words that mean yellow? Ecru, Ochre, Gamboge, Geolwe, Marillo, Geel, Zuto, Rumen, Gul, Mauvang...
Central Forest -> Enting Forest
Why not name the forest after the tree-folk of Middle Earth? Granted, Treebeard would look a bit out of place, but why not use names referred to by the Ents, such as Wellinghall, Derndingle, Fangorn, Bregalad, Finglas, Fladrif .... If the region name is changed, I definitely think that the Isle of Nugs should be renamed Entmoot Isle
Death Marsh -> Dead Marshes
Sleab is good (nice one RJ ), but I'm not keen on the names Alexandria, Cynic, or Orchid... it would be good to try and find names that feel a bit more dead or marshy... This is a mixture of LOTR and made-up words: Dagorlad, Wetwang, Rauros Falls, Mirklight, Rotweed, Shadowmist
Crossroads - > Wilderland? Wasteland? Barrendown?
The only territory names that I would urge you to change are Vega and Bonde Cove
Dragon Realm -> How about Fire Mountain instead?
I like this region name, although I don't know how 'red' it sounds...
I'm not sure whether Balrog fits here that well, and I think that Kette looks too similar to Kettle
That is not bad but MrBenn's suggestion uses the word Shire and that reflects back well to the old middle earth map. We will see what others saypamoa wrote:maybe Frozen Grounds for the first

EDIT: frozen shires then?
