I've been roleplaying for quite some time and more often than not I will be the DM/GM. I have drawn hundreds of maps of all sorts of things using pencil and paper. My art skills are crap but my map drawing skills are apparently quite adequate, lol. I really look forward to seeing some new ideas here and hopefully getting familiarized with some programs that will make map creation simpler and/or more interesting.

Hi Todd, and welcome to the guild. There are a lot of great tutorials depending on your choice of "weapon", myself I use Photoshop for most, but many inhere use the free program GIMP which is also a great program. If you want more ready to use then Campaign Cartotgrapher might be interesting. And when you're ready to map, post in the WIP section for help and critique :)
