Hi there, people ^^
My name's Felipe, but please, call me Phill
I'm a 17 years old Brazillian.

So, I found this forum searching for any decent map making programs, but, no luck XD
However, I found this forum! wich seems to be amazing XD
I'm kinda like bilbo baggins, i love maps, mor than that, I love making maps
sometimes you can see me on RPG Maker creating random cities XD

I also love geopolitics, but not more than history XD

but most of all, i like fantasy worlds
right now I am reading The Silmarillion =3

My greatest dream is to become a succsesful movie director, like geroge lucas, or even more.
And become famous because of this porject of mine that I am developing since 2006, and wich I'll keep working on until the day I die XD (I know, this dream is way too big, but we need to be ambicious, otherwise we can't get to do anything at all, can we?)

So... talking about music, I like Folk Metal, Melodic Metal, Power Metal, Heavy Metal, Classic Rock, Erudite Music, a little bit of pop, techno and Hard Core/Emo core and a LOT of japanese songs XD

I love games, simply LOVE games. I have a PS2 and a PSP and my favorite games are Kingdom Hearts (the entire series) Persona 3 and 4 and Okami

woot else?
I love to write, but I don't think I really need to say that XD it's kinda obvious

I did some maps on RPG Maker, but they aren't really... making sence
I... didn't think about a scale for it XD
anyways, I hope I can get many friends here and that I can learn sometrhing about cartpgraphy
and maybe, show a little bit of my work =D

thx for your time

with love, Phill Devil~

thanks for the welcoming, jtougas ^^


what's that Cooperative Worldbuilding Project?

There should be a wiki for it. Let me see if I can find it. Here it is (http://cwbp.cartographersguild.com/index.php?title=Main_Page).

Basically, it's a huge world that is divided up into areas that various members of the guild have worked on. Some have done large areas, others have done a town in a large area. Whatever you want to contribute to is welcome. You do have to get approval from one of the administrators for whatever area you are wanting to work on. I think there are still some maps available.

It's been pretty quiet over there lately though.

Strictly speaking, you don't even need approval; it's just polite to ask what others are doing so that we don't wind up with overlapping and contradictory information. But there's no stopping anybody who just wants to dive in and make maps.

I recommend taking a good look at Groam and The Beastlands—I've been dying to see more regional and local maps in those areas.
