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.

January Lit Mapping Challenge - Isometric Campsite
I like the look of this. I was wondering though, how would you use this as a battle mat? I would fear the iso experience is lost when you put minis on it... would it work with counters?
I would imagine that putting miniatures on the map would "flatten out" the effect. Counters would probably work better. I've actually never tried either. Maybe I will print out a copy and see how it goes.
