Colour me surprised

It appears that overhead transparency pens come in a strictly limited range of colours, a range which includes a single green. This is unfortunate for my recent map, which would work best with a second shade of green. I have tried using a non-OHP pen, but it was barely successful — after half an hour the deep colour had faded to a gentle patina. It will do, I guess, but it’s hardly ideal. Perhaps it’s simply not feasible to do nicely coloured maps with multiple layers except on computer? I hope not; part of the appeal of making maps is the drawing, the physicality of the process.

Here’s a few of the quotes I’ve noted down from the game. I have no idea what the context for the first one was.
