Yes, the background totally doesn’t match the rest of the site. I’ve been meaning to edit this/a theme to customize it for the site but I’ve also been incredibly lazy and not done so until now. Partly because I had no idea what colors I wanted to go with. But I think I’m going to go with a teal-based theme of some sort and see how that works out.
I just spent most of the evening working on my map-making skills. Yes, cartography for fun and profit, or not. Mostly because I think it’s cool to make maps and while I’ve poked around at doing them in the past, I never put any serious effort into making one. So I have a base map I’m working on and trying out different things to get the geographical details looking good. I mostly want it to be something that looks real and not just a random assortment of things called a map. That part is hard. Just because I feel like putting a mountain range in a location doesn’t mean I don’t have to think about why that range is there and what the lands around said range would be like. It’s a lot of planning, really. Once I have something finished (and I will finish this eventually) I’ll be sure to post it up for critique somewhere.
