I'm not a huge fan of the territory name font. Something about the change in size of each letter bugs me. I like the font style, but it looks almost too fairy tale-like or childish with the size changes. Could you perhaps find something of a similar style that doesn't do the size-changing thing?

As for names, I think most of them are fine. I'm not very good with names, and I'm sure others will give more useful comments in this area.

Seconded. I don't mind the marsh, can't really think of anything better, either :) . I'd get to work on the XML — I don't see too much else delaying this.

Can we get at least a FF on 'er?

I disagree 100%. I think the font works well for the style of the map. This is the first comment that I remember seeing with dissatisfaction towards the font style.

I have no issues with the font, though at the same time, I would not mind if it were changed, as long as it fit well with the map.

The font is awesome. It really fits with the style and feel of the map.

BTW do you know what the font is called? Ringbearer, like from LOTR ring bearer.
The Ringbearer font is a replication of the font used in the logo of Peter Jackson's "The Lord Of The Rings" trilogy.

So I think it is appropriate. :D

So are there no name change requests? If not the XML will be a quick and easy job to do.

none of the names seem "bad". we could spent weeks trying to add dragon names. I'd say just go ahead with it and let's get this done.

I don't really like the bonus names... the title of the map is "MIDGARD - The 7 kingdoms" but save Dragon Realm, none of them has a kingdomish name... they just give you an idea of the location/terrain type of the "continent" but they don't live up to the title's name...

i'd like to know what's the copyright status of middle-earth names.. but not common names like The Shire or Gondor... but more obscure/lesser known places of middle earth... here's a list of some names...

Eregion
Lindon
Belegost
Khazad-dûm
Nogrod
Arnor
Erebor
Angmar
Dol Guldur
Núrnen

So no one else is bugged by the font's up-and-down-ness? Oh well, I'll let it go, then. I just feel that you could find a font in a similar fantasy style that didn't do that bouncy-thing.

Dude It fit's extremely well with the map. So there isn't a complaint from me. Quench this sucker. :!: :twisted:

Why not just use one of the over 900 names you find in the Silmarillion?
