Hi folks. Just came along looking for some mapping advise or help. My maps are just plain bad, maybe I just find my way over to the request a map board.

Here is what I got so far Wizard City:

Hey, Sathurn, Looks like you have a good start there. At least you have a decent idea of the shape you want to work with. I would highly recommend checking out the Tutorial (http://www.cartographersguild.com/forumdisplay.php?48-Tutorials-How-To) sub-board, especially the Quickstart Guide to Fantasy Mapping (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?4276-Quickstart-Guide-to-Fantasy-Mapping). My first maps weren't any better than yours when I stumbled across this community. My first effort (http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?11224-Broken-Isle-First-Map) (still incomplete but I'm getting back to it) surprised the heck out of me and is a real testament to the tutorials created by the incredible folks here.

I look forward to seeing how your city develops. :)

Welcome to the Guild Sathurn. I second ProfGremlin's recommendations. There are some great town and city tutorials in the tutorials sub-board.
