The Cartographers’ Guild is a forum created by and for map makers and aficionados, a place where every aspect of cartography can be admired, examined, learned, and discussed. Our membership consists of professional designers and artists, hobbyists, and amateurs—all are welcome to join and participate in the quest for cartographic skill and knowledge.
Although we specialize in maps of fictional realms, as commonly used in both novels and games (both tabletop and role-playing), many Guild members are also proficient in historical and contemporary maps. Likewise, we specialize in computer-assisted cartography (such as with GIMP, Adobe apps, Campaign Cartographer, Dundjinni, etc.), although many members here also have interest in maps drafted by hand.

Although I now have this labeled as Nador Map 3d, it's my very first map, which I drew in 1978. I made a few changes in the early 1980s.
1978..! That's an old one. Reminds me of Tolkien's map a little. Nice to see a old maps still living
Hi Monks! I just got your message. Yup, I was heavily-influenced by Tolkein's map of Middle Earth. I drew things pretty much the way he did, only less skillfully. I'm still using this map today, although the locus of my current campaign is one map south as well as the map west of the one south, if you can follow my tortured explanation. :-D
