I just discovered this Guild today, and after skimming through the discussions, I couldn't fail to join this marvellous community.

I've been trying to create fantasy worlds since my early teens (as, I bet, many of the people here...). My chief interests are, as a linguist, the languages, and, of course (otherwise I wouldn't be here), maps. I only recently began drawing and creating on computer, and I'm still looking for good software (for now, I'm mucking around with The Gimp, being on linux).

My dream would be to be able to create a 'google earth'-like view of a world (from scratch), from large scale to (for now) not-so-large, on a single file format. I don't know if this is possible...

Anyway, I'm glad to be among you guys, I think this will be a great experience!

If thats what your after then dont miss the "Cooperative Worldbuilding Project" forum section with a link to the wiki at the top of the posts. In there is "Project Overview" with a map of a section of the world done by loads of members. If you want a quickie demo then click here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qELcbKXdRm8) for a youtube demo of it.
