I decided to finally give mapping my gaming world a real go, so I did some snooping around the net to see what resources I could find when I stumbled on here.

I'm a total newbie for this map making stuff, so I don't really have much to add other than to say a huge freaking Thank You to everyone here for contributing to this Amazing message board (which is now officially my favorite message board of all time)! There is so much info and how to going on that I'm very overwhelmed, and loving it.

Thanks again, and hopefully I'll be showing off some of my stuff once I become decent at it ;)

Welcome to the boards, Thanin.

Although you said, that you'd post a map, when you have something decent -- well, it best if you start posting right away.

There are many gurus here that can point you in the right direction, you will get plenty of tips, what's wrong with a given map, and how best to improve it. But you only get this kind of help, when you actually post a map.

We can't help unless you start posting maps right away.

We've had many newbies that offerred us their first map try - with a few suggestions, first attempts become masterpieces.

So post a map as soon as you can! And again, welcome!

Hi, Thanin. I'll only underline what Gameprinter said: 1) welcome, and 2) start posting right away! :)

Glad you're here!

You have found the place to be, as far as mapping for fantasy is concerned. As has been said, post, post early, post often. But also, contribute to the discussions (even noobies have worthwhile things to say), offer constructive criticism to the maps you see here, and enjoy.
