Paging Landscaper Perry!
Lets get this border done.
I'd like to ask that we both extend the Gavaudon Forest towards each other and connect them here.
This is the exact spot the region map is saying they connect. there is a flat ledge on the hill that would help with the crossing. We can re paint that hill with dirt and stone textures and blend it into the snow higher up the hill as well.

the region maps are only rough guidelines and often don't take the actual topology of the Heigthmap into account. For example, when a region does not completely cover a clearly visible valley and you'd had to fill out the small rest of it with a completely different biome, it is in your decision as a leveldesigner how to approach the design of that critical zone.

Hey Karhu,
The region stretches between our claim and this is the only place we can put a crossing, otherwise it would just be a cliff. I understand we could just have the two parts of the region seperate, I just feel it'd be better for player's sake if we made a nice little path between them. Otherwise they would need to either glitch jump across a cliff, or walk all the way around the cliff.
