Brand new to this board and cartography in general.

I joined in hopes of learning how to make a good campaign map for a 2nd Ed. D&D campaign and there appear to be some great maps on here. Any good first steps anyone can recommend?

Welcome To The Guild. It would be helpful to have a little more information. What size map are you looking to make. World, Continent, Kingdom, City ? . When you decide that the next thing to decide is what type of software (if any) you want to use. After that check out the tutorial section. There are many helpful articles for all the popular software. Here are some links for you

The Quickstart Guide to Fantasy Cartography (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?4276-Quickstart-Guide-to-Fantasy-Mapping.)

Software Dicussion (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?1033-New-to-Digital-Cartography-Software-General-Information)

Tutorials (http://www.cartographersguild.com/forumdisplay.php?48-Tutorials-How-To)

Hope this gets you started on the right path. I look forward to seeing your work :)

WOW I did not think there were many others still using the 2nd edition rule set.

I still use the 2e rules as well. IMO the best of the versions. :)

No 2E here...have the books but was sitting out gaming at that point in my life. :) Folks have already pointed out the tutorials so I'll just second that notion and wait to see your maps. Welcome to the Guild!
