Ahoy all!

My name is gimil and I just came accross this site after a speak with bryguy who I know from another site.

So who am I? Well I come here from an online variation of the board game risk know as ConquerClub.com. Over there we have a hugh community of over 22,000 active members! I know thats alot! Over at Conquer Club I moderate a section of there game forum know as "The Map Foundry".

Intrested yet?

What I moderate is a process where the CC (conquer club) community get to participate in creating their very own maps to be uploaded and played on the site!

After I browsed a few images here and there I seen alot of potential that our map foundry could use to make is bigger and better!

Currently one of your users know as bryguy has started a thread to promote this forum. Hopfully that should bring a few of our guys over here and I do hope a few of you guys from here find your way over to CC.

If we all interact and learn from each other I feel both groups of people could achieve and improve so much on our skills and abilities as cartpgraphers!

Click to join Conquer Club! (http://www.conquerclub.com/index.php?ref=65393)

I do hope to see and hear from you all soon!



Happy map making gimil.

Wow! I love all three of those maps! Full of character and theme! Welcome to the guild, all of you!

p.s. I notice that in good 'Risk' fashion you don't attack in ones but in threes!

In our map making forum called the "Map Foundry", there are different stages in which all maps go through: Map Ideas, Main Foundry, and Final Forge. In each of these stages, many of the members from the Foundry look at maps and comment on them. It usually takes a few moths to get a Map through the process, but in the end they turn out looking great and fun maps.


There are many more of our maps on CC, you can look at the rest of the 87 here:

Lanyards I think he meant that there were three people :) (or at least I hope so...cause that would be a cool comment!)

Either way, I'm sure we can learn from each other.

Well, sending just one earlier apparently didn't work. I forget who that was, but we had someone from Conquer Club post up some samples of his work a while back. I was quite impressed, and I think I expressed at that time how cool I thought some of the variants were.

Hey guys, I'm here also.

That was WidowMakers, I think. He has made quite a few awesome maps.


Here's one I've made.

And one of my favorites to play on, made by DiM.

I've seen lots of talent on this site, and I'd love to see a few members here give Risk maps a try.

...lol. I like the smilies here, also :!:

Anyway, once I get my second map going, I'm probably going to post it over here also, to see if I could get some help making it more realistic.

Hello all - I'll introduce myself as well. I've also seen the thread over at Conquer Club which gives props to this site. I thought I would check it out. I've been a member over at CC for a few years now. I've made a few maps, and am working on a few more currently. I prefer real geographic locations, rather than fictional themes. I use Photoshop CS3 to create my maps. I typically start a project and will not complete it for about 6 months (to a year). Cartography is just a hobby, that I really enjoy. In fact, I prefer making maps rather than playing actual games on them (I stick at risk). So.... I'll show off some of my maps, as this is what the site was created for ;)

So here's some maps that I've created...

And here's some maps that I'm currently working on...
