    Map Updates?

    Probably the spoilers I'm most interested in until the game is released is the Map Updates, I want to see how the world culture and setting is portrayed in the new edition. The Map of Creation always made me excited because I loved the ample space to create your own cultures and nations, and not just small ones you could create truly large ones in the gaps!

    So its been ages since we got a map update. Care to inform us on some? :P

    "Merry Christmas, here's the map" would be wonderful, omg.

    I need my fix man! This National Geographic collection of various historical empire maps won't tide me over forever! I'm starting to literally climb the walls in a ham-fisted attempt at a drugs metaphor (God season 6 of Buffy was stupid).

    The color palette is the same, but the detailing in the final version makes the whole thing appear crisper and more vivid.

    When you guys show the final version of the map, could we perhaps get a bigger image? I know you guys will want to sell poster sized pdf versions or something later, but the current one is pretty tiny given the amount of detail. Maybe a bonus wallpaper sized image as a backer only exclusive? If not, can you at least make sure it's big enough to read the location names clearly?
    I'm voting that the final version of the map gets posted at the same size as the previous versions, if only because the tears that will spring from your eyes as you try to read the tiny location names will taste like sweet candy! But I just shrank down my copy of the latest map to match that of the earlier map spoilers, and even at that size, the map looks pretty nifty despite the loss of detail.

    And here I am, getting increasingly bothered by how the Imperial Mountain is off-center.

    (It's pretty cool map overall, though. Doubtlessly the most evocative teaser so far.)

    I'm just hoping I'll have a wall by the time this all comes out!
