Valz Region Map (very simple)

Not a lot of time today or tonight (playing D&D, actually), but I did manage to play around with Google Earth and GIMP some more.  I'm slowly beginning to figure out both of them, with an emphasis on slowly.  Here, I just used the Google Earth Placemark tool to make Valz and place.  Then, I exported the map to a JPEG and added the "Arms of Orum" textbox.  Simple, I know, but I am taking baby steps here.  I'd like to find a way to make the Arms label stand out a little better against the blue ocean background.

I almost added several cities to the map, especially to al-Andalus, but I ran aground coming up with names.  I couldn't decide how Spanish they should sound and didn't have time to do a lot of research.  I don't want to name a city something that translates into "bird vomit."
