Threepoint14159 (meh) here. I don't play Dungeons and Dragons, although I do read plenty of fantasy literature and play fantasy role-playing video games (both Japanese and Western). I've been interested in fantasy cartography since I read Lord of the Rings, and would like to learn much about it.
Nice to meet you, if you're reading this.

Welcome, O great piemaster. Indeed, many of us do not play D&D. For some here, the map IS the play :-).
There are many tutorials (http://www.cartographersguild.com/forumdisplay.php?48-Tutorials-How-To) you can work through to help you develop skills at many styles and scales of mapping. One initial decision point could simply be - what graphics software to you have access to, or do you want an excuse to get ? Or are you a papyrus and pen kind of person ? - not everything afoot here is digital.
