Yup...another New Member thread.

I am an aspiring fantasy writer with a penchant for drawing maps. I find creating maps from scratch therapeutic. I have a lot of maps.

I decided to start coming here to learn to computer design aspect, something I've never used. All my many maps are on paper.

Anyway, hello, and it was awesome to discover such a place.

Welcome to the guild. You have come to the right place for learning how to map!

Looking forward to seeing your work progress. Don't write off your hand drawn maps yet - as we often say here, hand drawn maps are among the best we have!

Thanks guys.

It seems wild (and heartening) that there are so many other people out with this interest. It almost feels like I've come out of a closet and found a whole world.
