I stumbled across this forum just recently. I'm an old P'n'P roleplayer and with the release
of Runequest 6 am reviving ideas from an old campaign. I have started re-mapping the world
and hope to get some good hints and ideas from here.

I've been drawing maps for RPGs for as long as I can remember, it must be 30 years now.
Have just started using GIMP and Inkscape to do my mapping and am finding it fun and really
useful. No more ink maps that I can't erase mistakes from!

Hope I can be of help as well to the people here.

Welcome to the Guild Stuart! Looks like I'm just across the pond from you. You can do quite a bit with GIMP and Inkscape. Check out the tutorials section and you'll find tons of great walk-throughs. Looking forward to seeing your work.

Cheers,

Hi Stuart. Good to see another Aussie on the boards. My group are also into Legend(MRQII) which we use for my Elric campaign and RQ6. Whereabouts in Oz are you located?

I'm in Brisbane at the moment. Maybe Sydney later this year.
Not sure how to get there, all our Australian maps are upside down...
