Hi, I'm new here, and new to cartography.
I'm looking to learn a little about map making so I can develop a map for a story me and my friend are writing.

Please treat me kindly.:)

Alert, Intruder!

Welcome. :)

What tools do you have so far?

Intruder, eh? To hide among us you'll need to fit in. I know: pick a likely style and fire up a tutorial. ;-). No better way to get helpful input than to post a WIP (work in progress) thread as you go through a tutorial, or as you experiment on your own.

So. What kind of story? That'll lead to what kind of map. Do the two of you have scads of ideas already afoot, or are you looking for an infusion of geography to kick start the imagination?

Well even intruders are welcome, unless they're spammers, spammers we tar and feather. You have come to the right place to learn about map making though. Have a stroll through the tutorials section and you'll find plenty of walk through's to keep you occupied.
