"Romilia" was an interesting little map that i enjoyed with a million and one imperfections. The map features a wacky mix terrain ins a snowy world, which while interesting to behold is a bit too busy and cluttered. Some areas look fine such as the opening city and the path leading due south, with a mixed forest that is pleasant to behold with a good road and some rocks and bushes for details. In some areas there is leaf terrain in little driblets which looks very peculiar and out of place. The jungle green plants can be used in winter scenes but i feel they are a bit too green most of the time. The flower patch usage could have been a bit more subtle as they are quite numerous and placed in the open. A big recurring problem is the extremely sharp edges along coastal terrain where the many terrains are not mixed correctly and some bizarre edges are visible at many places. The map had several forts, cities and minor locations which were fairly decent, though aside from the opening city they were not crafted with great attention to detail. Usage of music, sound effects, or dialogue of any kind seems to be entirely absent and is a missed opportunity to add some panache to the map.

In summary i enjoyed looking at and evaluating "Romilia". Its certainly somewhat eclectic and its green winter wont be enjoyable for everyone. I would encourage the author to try the same concept on a larger map and attempt to make some smoother terrain transitions and perhaps avoid leaves and little pieces of grass in the middle of winter scenes.
