I'm starting to think I'm a bit too thickheaded to figure any of these clues out. What exactly am I looking for? images? links? text? Belaying pins? I'm so confused

Also, the squares in the background help too.

I like having the pieces clipped. I put a 1 pt white stroke on all the piece layers and it makes it look like faint borders on a map. A map of Craplandia.
