Not sure if it's been mentioned, but Newcastle should be way up north, by Berwick, not down south. :)
Also I love that Whitby is on there, cool town!

Bollocks.

Coventry should be a crossroad rather than a dead end, no? I'm not an expert, but I seem to remember that historically Coventry was known as the intersection of many trade routes.

I had to make some liberties to make the areas clear and fit appropriately. To me the game play is more important then the accuracy of the geographical locations - Over-all this is a game not a history class. Sorry for those who wish that the locations where more accurate, but I'm sure if you give it a chance you will enjoy the game play...

I like it, though I'd prefer a different background for your title, the orangy background with the purple letters don't fit imo.

ok changed from a gold plaque to a silver one does it look better?

It might seem a little bold - but I was asked to make the name pop a bit...

suggestions - opinions?

hmm, still looks a bit odd
but that's mostly the flowers you drew around it maybe.
Perhaps you can make a normal but pretty title, lying on a large rose or some big roseleaves or something.

The problem is mostly that little roses growing of your title is a good idea, but not so much on this scale in my opinion. So either you make the title and the roses on it bigger or you just take out the roses overgrowing it and integrate roses differently.

Ok, I dumped the little roses - changed color of font from blue to black, added a couple of large roses and cleaned up the font a bit..

What do you all think now?

Place names could be smaller. They are very bulky and confusing. I don't think it looks finished because of that. What program are you using to make this because it's also pixelating the text?

If geographical locations can be more accurate, why not make them more accurate?... just saying.

Sorry to be a wee bit critical.

Ok, I'll make text smaller - I'm hand drawing the text - it was more blurry when I used arail font or times roman - so I decided to just draw it myself pixel to pixel. (All text on the map and in the title) - The instruction text is arial font I think..

To make geographical locations more accurate I'll need to place 8 places north of the top river next to Berwick - Right now I have in that small trianglar area 4 places - try to picture what it would look like it I doubled it.

ok kept the size at 12 since you all wish small text - but to make it clearer - I removed the fancy text for a standard text and have it all in caps.. Can you all read it now? Any other suggestions or concerns?
