View Full Version : Completely ignorant newbie

Hi! I am (as my thread title suggests) a completely ignorant newbie to mapping. My interest comes from some fantasy stories I'm writing, for which I need to create maps. Sadly, I lack any artistic talent whatsoever (my children laugh at my efforts). So software tools is clearly the way I need to go...

As much as possible, I want the worlds I create to be geographically plausible. Lacking any training in geology/geography and the related sciences, I've been trying to read up on things. Knowing the physical settings for my characters is important to me. Hence, again, the need for mapping.

I look forward to learning here!
