Hi all, my name is Angelo, i'm Italian and i'm absolutely new to map making, i need help to start (i'm thinking... Mapping 101, ^__^)

i'm open to any advise you can give... software to start, for example... ^_^

i'll use my map for my Pathfinder games, i've found this site useful already, but i want to try something made by myself.

Thank you for any help.

Benvenuti alla gilda, DrakAngel.

As Mateus suggested, check out the sub-forums on tutorials and new-mapping guides to start the creative wheels rolling. The best thing to do is to just start somewhere, anywhere, with your mapmaking and then work on improving. You can post your works in progress and ask for tips and pointers from the other members of the site.

You should also definitely check out the software discussion thread Mateus posted to get an idea on what is out there. There are many commercial and free programs that are useful that cover a wide range of capabilities.

Good luck and do be afraid to share your progress!
