Peace & Blessings Upon You All,

As you can tell by the column to the left that I am Black Barook. I'm one and twenty years of age and I hail from the nation-state of Kuwait. My interest in mapping was peaked with my introduction to games such as Age Of Empires, Total War, The Sims/Simcity. From what I've seen of this place (Which might not be all that much) there is a lot of focus on heavy fantasy cartography and I have to disappoint and say that the only fantasy game that I've played is WoW...and Age of Mythology...and Rise of Legends...and Black & White (2)

Okay I forgot where I was going with this...oh yes. Hello!

Also to shoehorn this in, does anyone know where I can get help with real world maps? I'm working on one of Spain for a Moorish Total War story.

Please and Thank You!

Welcome to here :)

Google Earth has pretty good maps depending on what you need.

Here is the map that I'm working on. I'm looking for a little help with it. Is there a specific forum for it?

That looks great! If its still in the works, post it in the regional/world mapping forum.

Welcome to the Guild!

And I agree, your Spain map looks fantabulous!

welcome... check out the tutorials and when you're ready - post in the WIP section for help and critique :) ... and don't worry about your lack of interest in the fantasy field - we need more non-fantasy mappers :)
