Hello all!

After a hiatus from table-top gaming, our group is back to playing. While hunting for map resources, I found this community, and absolutely love the work I see here.

I'm an old hand at Photoshop for my photography work, but relatively new to using it for mapping. I've already found a lot of great inspiration in these forums.

Welcome, I run a little guild member map so stick a pin into it. The link is in my sig. With enough Ontarians ill add a zoom box around it. I put one in for Vancouver area recently.

I'll put one in anywhere where there are enough pins that make it difficult to see where each person is from. So far we seem to have a lot in Vancouver / Washington district which may reflect the WotC origins - or not. Theres a few city hot spots but when a region is getting over populated then ill add another zoom level around it Quebec included...

Also when I went to Montreal (my fav foreign city !) everyone spoke french there. I thought everyone who lived there was bi-lingual.

They do, they just speak French to tourists (including Ontario-ians) :)

lol Especially Totontonians ;)

Actually, the island of Montreal is more or less divided language wise along the East-West lines from downtown. The further west you are the more likely you are to hear English spoken and the further east you go the more French the neighborhood. On the whole, I would say that 75% of the pop understand both languages (and better than they give themselves credit for, or will acknowledge) at at least a conversation level while 50% can (if they wanted to) actually communicate in the other language. Your location on the island would influence that as well. Downtown is relatively bilingual, it is just a question of how interested they are to speak the other language. Don`t ask, 'cause I really could get into pages and pages as to why quebecers can be so........."reluctant" to speak their non-native tongue.

Now Back to RR's comment.....Just because I can speak it does not mean that I have much opportunity to actually write in the language. Read and speak I can do, french spelling and grammer.......not so much. ;)
