Proposed map for a Dragon Knight campaign. Not as confident working in colour, hence the lack of more detail.

I like "some" of the color on the map. I'm not sure I like the bright red for the main land mass though. Something a bit less bright maybe would be better. At least in my opinion.

More than fair! I wanted to do a monochrome map because I dislike some of the tools on this CC3 map set, but it is rather garish.

Red also isn't working for me but it does have the nice feature of making it clear the color is not indicative of terrain. Tan would look good but then might give the impression of lack of forests.
There does seem to be some miscommunication regarding color. The blue does seem to be indicating terrain type. The red doesn't. It isn't consistent.

Great feedback, thank you. I turned on some of the sheet effects and it does look a little less busy now, with the landmass more defined. I would have changed the red a bit more, but unfortunately I can't change the mountain colour as easily and don't want to have to do all over again. I'll look for a tool to mass-change them if possible. It's a shame I don't like the vegetation options on this set, as I would like to delineate forests.

Last tweaking I'm doing on these. Hex and non-hex versions. I'm pleased enough with how it turned out. Will work on more full-colour maps.

I like the more muted colors of this map vs the two with and without hexes. I am partial to hexes though
That's just my personal preference which may more may not be info you're after here.

Easy enough to slap some hexes on it! Now that I look at it after a sleep, I'm not as enamored as I once was but could still get some use someday. Now, to find a game that supports Dragon-riding chivalric Knights....

I was going to write a kids setting where dragon riding knights would clash with goblins in all shapes and sizes, more mischievous/Labyrinth/muppets than typical greenskins. You could throw in undead knights/dragons as a third faction, plus other nations for a more 'mature' game.

There are surprisingly fewer games for Dragon-riders than I would have expected. There were a couple of FATE based ones I was checking out, but they don't seem to have been finished.

Criminally neglected, I say.
