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.

Great maps. What software did you use to make this one?
Wow, these look great ! I could never really master the art of making truly tileable tiles, thus my maps tend to be solid colors. We stopped using battle maps in our DnD campaign and turn to more primitive drawings. I used to like sitting down and making them (I used default tiles, nothing fancy) until one day my players said they liked the streamlined and more imaginative approach. I still make city and regional maps though, its probably my favorite part of being a DM. I'd be interested in knowing which software you used also, its always good to expand my horizons of software. I'm pretty much stuck on gimp though
Great looking maps and tile work
