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.

This was a map I did while writing a recent tutorial on making maps in this style.
i really enjoy your maps, especially this one
Why thank you Alanrex, nice of you to say.
Nice! I really like the rivers on this map!
i love your maps - this one is excellent.
Thanks so much benpppp!
i am new to the guild, apologies if this is tottally incorrect way to go about it, but is there no way i can private message you about the story i need help with? or you could pm me?
Hi benppp, unfortunately the PM system only kicks into effect once you have 5 or more posts over in the forums. I see that you currently do not have any. There is an easy solution to that: go and browse through the finished maps gallery and comment on at least 5 maps that you like. Once you've done that you should be able to send me a PM.
thanks for your reply arsheesh
i have commented on 10 maps! but frustratingly it seems i am still unable to PM....
any suggestions gratefully received...
Just sent you a PM (you should see it under notifications). If you can't open or reply to it let me know.
