This map has turned out pretty nice.
I must say, that it is a welcomed sight, to see a few really nice maps getting quenched lately.
This map is good as it is, but did you ever try my suggestion about trading places with the bear and the bonus map ? You could scale the bonus map down a bit and scale the bear up. That bear really makes this map unique, and it would not hurt one bit to make it even more pro dominant.

pork, I think that moving the minimap up there would be awkward with the shape of Greenland, and IMO it's fine as is.

Wait. ... the bear's back foot... it looks like he's doing a doo doo.

And why is greenland not green?

And the instructions on ice passes are only in English, it should be English subtitles on the original native Greenlandian?

Plus the beat in the native language is too modern for an ancient culture.

And the water texture is wrong - it doesn't reflect the undersea maps publicly available.

And why is the ice cap white? Why isn't there yellow snow. You need a reason the area costs -1 per turn.

Actually I quite like the map.

Should the passes start as neutral? Graphically the map is good, the only thing i dont like is the two 'water lines' around the word Greenland. It looks watery, not icy. the text about losing a troop for the passes im not sure about, but i dont see what else you can do, unless you write it on the minimap.

Yes, the ice passes start at 2 neutrals. For the note ... Like you said there really isn't another option. I'll reduce the opacity of the lines a tad.

Update with fixed centering shortly.

sorry, i knew that and misquoted... I'll edit.

Anyway, the final stamp is coming... we've always given maps more than a week at this stage, so no reason to rush things and upset our delicate foundry balance. ;)

My only gripe is the title. I like the font and the gradient, but just not the water reflection (if that's what it's suppose to be). It looks really strange. Like the reflection is floating above the text or something. Is there anyway you could work on that? Maybe sort of like I did the Iceland title?
