View Full Version : Hello after 2 years

Hello, guys,
as the title already states i'm kinda old-and-new fellow here. I'd been lurking here for some time a few years back looking (and sometimes not believing) what all can be done with fantasy mapping. That was the days I'd been actively playing RPGs and GMing them too. In that long-gone-past I stopped playing (and GMing) the RPGs for some reasons (which included some personal problems and luck too) and for a few weeks now I am trying to "get back to bussines" with GMing the RPGs.
Nevertheless I've never abandoned the cartographing craft and since I posses a few of great ProFantasy tools (CC3, CD3, DD3, SS1 and SS2) I'm trying (again) to create some new maps for my group of players.
The years before I remember this to be a place to easily find an inspiration and possibly a help too and that's what I'm looking for now too. Hopefully I'll be able to help some of You too.

In the end I may add some bare facts about me: I am of 35 years old, married with (two) children ;) (but please - don't call me Al Bunda)

Soooo..., I am glad to be (back) here,
Dron alias Pavel Svika

Well, I thought an example of one of my own overland map could do more than a tousands of words so here it comes....
(hopefuly I managed to add it right - I have no experience with this kind of forum)

Welcome aboard, looks like it attached properly.

Go poke about the Tutorials for hints on how to progress. My other advice is Lurve the GIMP

Ahoj Dron, Good to see you finally de-cloak. Nice CC3 map - as you know theres loads of CC3 able members to help you out... but I am not one so welcome and see you around.

Hi Dron, welcome to the guild, nice example of your maps ... I think there are a river violation or two in there... but they are hard to follow - but if you want to check for them yourself, just make sure that rivers allways flow towards the sea, the only join up, and never split - then you're safe :)
