So glad I have found this great place! Really the place to be for mapping and I'm looking forward to start my very first map. It will be a medieval/renaissance map and I will start once I've done a little more research. Still plotting a lot of the backstory - it's a writing project mainly - and once I've got the town and the surroundings in my head (or on paper) my new very exciting adventure will officially start.

Of course, I will check out all the tutorials as I need to start somewhere :P

Welcome to the Guild! Looking forward to hearing more about your project.

Thanks! As soon as I have done my research and I've got my first chapter(s) up, I am more than happy to go into detail. Unfortunately only a few characters, situations and development have been plotted and it still could move in so many directions ;) Just didn't want to pass on this opportunity as I love graphics and creating the map is actually motivating me to write as well. A win-win!!

And I so think it won't stop at one map :P

Thanks! Gonna research and find some resources - like tutorials - for a little longer, but I'm looking forward to start. The various maps here and what I've seen on dA, have really inspired me. Will open a thread as soon as I begin..

Thanks! I'm trying to find my bearings by reading some of the tutorials. They and the resources are impressive as is the work of the members. Hope to contribute and be more active in the near future.
