It's looking nice, but I have no idea about gameplay. You should start working out territory names & bonusses to get an idea of how the map will play.

At the moment there is far too much wasted space, particularly on the small version. You can crop a lot closer to the coastline. Yes, you'll lose some of the table/parchment background, but it will be a lot clearer.

Your army circles are way too small on the small map - you need them to be about 22 or 24px diameter

I would strongly recommend against using that calligraphy font for terit names... it's too elaborate for the requisite size.

the circles look extremely out of place. Just make them circles using the same style you made the borders. You probably dont even need them

Also, maybe make different colored text and circles for different continents

1) your gonna have to work on the docks, ill see what i can do to help
2) i strongly suggest removing the arm circles
3) The battles neew to be faded more
4) Try rethinking the different continents for telling which are which. The text telling which continent is which make the map seem crowded


sorry but i dont have much time to comment, im heading off to bed soon

army circles look too much like the white rose... make them more translucent i guess, or make the rose more bold
