It looks kind of strange to me since the letters have a shadow and nothing else does.

I agree... and I'm sorry Natty, I know this is something you feel strongly about, and you know a lot more than me about it, but I really like Evil's version from page 14 (before all this text tweaking started) the best. I know the text is plain, and that that style wouldn't work for the majority of maps, but this map is supposed to be simple and cartoonish, that's one of the things that made me really like it in the first place. The fonts you made look very pretty in and of themselves, but I just don't think they fit with the rest of the map. I also do not understand what was wrong with the original text in the first place... "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." If it was illegible then I agree that's a problem, but I don't think it was.

A solid, thick hand-written-ish font would be best I think... perhaps just a little less squiggly than the current one?
