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.

A section of my Pathfinder world Therizoth. Not quite done yet.
My first serious attempt at mapping in Photoshop. I'm fairly happy with how it's turning out. Some of the names will change. Haikio and Akiruno will more than likely move to a different location as I am beginning to think that area is probably a client state of Thresia and will be similar in culture to ancient Egypt.
Nice map! I'd like to see more of this world (a worldmap would be great ).
Care to tell us a bit about the world itself? I'm always interested in world-fluff.
