Hi, I'm a first-time DM who is new to 4e and actual campaigns (my friends and I would just improvise adventures or download them off the internet) my group consisits of 3 neophytes and one seasoned player. I would be very appreceiative of any world maps you would care to create for me. I'm happy with any map as long as it has 3 features: there has to be one quite large ocean between two continents, at the middle of that ocean there has to be some sort of icon of a city built on docks or something of that sort and over it there has to be the words "Stormport" (integral to the campaign) and last of all I LOVE BIG MAPS!!!

Any particular style? I could knock one out really quickly using FT, but it will look either like what you might see from a satellite photo or an atlas.

I can't promise "Stormport" but my campaign world has got the required ocean ;)
It's also got lots of varied cultures to explore. Are you sold yet?

There is a big island between Hanrath and Al-Haquim. With a little editing ... there could be a port city there.

Welcome to the guild. I suggest, pickup or not, you get a program that will let you at least label a map for your own use. Try Paint dot Net. It will take a graphic and allow you to write on it.

Then you can serf for the perfect map and mod it a bit for your purposes.

Or you could just steal (borrow) the community world (see the CWBP forum). That should give you half your campaign map straight off.

Well.. you could always try RobA's "Regional map in GIMP" tutorial. You can make some really good results with out to much work...
