Hello there all you fabulous people here at the Cartographer's Guild. I DID have a lovely introduction all set up and ready to post (probably long winded) unfortunately it seems as though my computer really hates me right now and deleted everything and then shut down. I then lost that lovely introduction. So ....I will do my best to give a better introduction in the coming days, but for right now I should just say hi before it happens again. I also had some troubles trying to do anything with my profile, so please don't think I am being antisocial. My hand me down computer has some issues that need to be worked out. It was being used by someone who thinks that having Kapersky, Norton, Mcaffee, Spyware terminater of three different kinds is good for your computer and has no idea how to use one in the first place left it quite a mess and I am still trying to fix all the problems.

Apologies everyone, I will try to make a better introduction later,

hopefully I will be able to post my first play map that I made in GIMP last night. The layers, backgrounds and everything were from tutorials, but the map and compass itself if stolen right off the internet. I am not using them for anything, it was just a "Let's see what it would look like with a map" Kind of thing. I would have completely imported one of my maps, but it was already four in the morning and I had to get up at six.

so, yeah I can't seem to upload anything either. Sigh.

Technology, I love it, but it seems to have a personal grudge against me. grumble grumble grumble. Oh well. Nice to meet everyone here and hope to become a permanent installment. :D

Thanks arsheesh! After hanging around for a couple of days and checking the guild out, I downloaded every tutorial I could find to play with.(It was thoroughly embarrassing how long it took for me to realize tut meant tutorial) I almost feel like I know some of you guys a little bit just from your posting. I've never played with software like this before, I mean I never even took photoshop or anything in highschool, so i'm muddling through. It's funny I kind of feel like a wild barbarian in the middle of the roman senate, but I will do my best not to pee on the floor so to speak

That gave me a chuckle. Well you are in good company. Many of us, including myself, knew nothing of digital software before coming to the Guild. There is a learning curb, but once you crest the rise there is an amazing vista of possibility before you.

Cheers,

The same goes for me, I'm still learning something new every time I make a map.
