The map features are a nice touch, however the background still looks blurry for some reason...

Looks good. But why is Towns capitalized someplaces and not others. I only think you should capitalize it if it is a proper noun (person, place or thing) same with Kraj. If Kraj is a foreign word for town it should only be capitalized at the start of the sentence.


Also "+2 for each 2 Kraj'"sounds funny. Probably just translation issues but "+2 for every 2 Kraj's" sounds better IMO.

there is no more things which would be capitalized. except Kraj. or?

Kraj is name for region (something as County).

I was a little afraid how Krajs will sounds. it is not english word, therefore I did not it capitalized...

Magicks? Well, you could start by sacrificing a goat... ;)

I don't know if you should try to fix it though. It'd be better to find a new one that's sharper, there's lots of free textures online... try googling for "free paper textures", just make sure the site you download from allows use of their textures for all purposes.

Oneyed

Neither town nor kraj should be capitalized, unless the word is at the beginning of a sentence.

The Slovak plural for "kraj" is "kraje", am I right? You could use that. Using the English pluralisation on a foreign word looks wrong to me.

The words in the two keys are difficult to read because of the map background behind them.

Also, it would be a nice touch to add the longitude/latitude numbers to the background.

You could add some kind of outline, glow or shadow to the letters. That would make them easier to read.

new version with another background, some graphic changes, added longitude and latitude numbers, changed plural of Kraj from Krajs to Kraje (which is correct in Slovak and in Czech languages).

about difficult reading of names, is it realy so bad? if yes I can add more opacity to names, but any outer glow or shadows will not fit with map style, I think...

thanks to everybody for inputs, comments and help. looking forward to next ones :)

Is it my eyes, or does this post: viewtopic.php?f=583&t=162795&start=90#p3608407

And this one: viewtopic.php?f=583&t=162795&start=90#p3606970

Appear to be darker / lighter? I like the lighter (second) one. If it is my eyes, I'll get them checked out when I go in a couple of weeks. :)

Awesome.

It's not the names. It is the instruction located in the keys with the map as the background. It's hard to read because the background changes so much.

I think making those background maps (the maps of NR and SR in the respective boxes) more transparent might solve this problem?
