Your suggestion with the witch - is cute....

But actually I sort of love the idea of making it look more real-life
In the original design I love:
the Sun, and solar glare
the shimmering waters
and the wavy ozone in the south...

Not sure if it is possible or likely, but I'd suggest to try to make it look like a real world seen from space instead of a cartoonish feel... But that's just my opinion.... And I'm a noob....

You'll like his/her* slightly more detailed friend:

*gender actually unknown


Even so, I'm not sure that's the way to go with adding a turtle to this map. It doesn't look like something I'd expect on a CC map. But I want to keep it as simple and clear as the rest of the image.

ManB, the first map you posted in this thread is beautiful. Man. I'd love to play on a luscious map like that.

I love the Discworld series and Sir Terry, but our map is a bit dated. A Discworld II would be fantastic, though. (There's actually a GURPS Discworld and a GURPS Discworld II, so there's precedence. (= ) If Pratchett agreed to the first one, perhaps he'd agree to a new one as well?

I like the turtle in your new one, man, but it may be too similar to the original map. Apparently one of the things that Jota was asked to take away was the turtle on his original.

Here's the map the CC map was based on:

I dunno, though. Your turtle is significantly different from the original, so it might fly. Or swim, rather.
