Redo of my map of Mérindar. Nearly the same scale, it covers now far more space and a lot more details :)

I use Photoshop to create my maps.
To draw the rivers and coasts I just looked at real sattelite images and tried to make my lines look similar ;)

Good map! How did you do the mountains?

They consist of three layers (low, medium, high mountains), with some differences in their blending options (mainly bevel & emboss). It's quite simple, all in all :)

It's very impressive!
Is it part of a gaming campaign?
Can you tell me what the map key says in English?

It's for my own german rpg board [link]

The map key in english:
left column - capital, important city, fortress, mountain top
right column - city, village, trade post, road, former frontier/border, farmland
