..and I also created a comic that follows a different story, but is set in the same world

I really like this map a lot so I might as well critique it. I think you made a wise choice in using a lot of bright colors. It really brings the image to life. I could definitely see an rpg game or pokemon game happening on here. My only grip is that I can't read any of the words that you wrote at all. It might be just my computer though, but not being able to read the words really detracts from the value of the map. That being said, I saw this in %WorldBuildersGuild and it really stands out.
I'm happy to hear that you like the colors, and if it reminds you of a RPG game, that's great!
I fully agree about the text, it's not the best font at all, especially not scaled down like this. if I find some time, I'll look into it and be sure to update this image
