Hello.

I am new here but am really enjoying all the work people are putting into this site and appreciate the resources for my d&d game I am running in a world of my own creation... any short cuts to build a scene or setting are very appreciated...

i hope to post some of my world maps in the next little while.

take care,

Phil

Hi Phil and welcome to the guild! If you're after tutorials on mapmaking, check out the tutorial section. What software do you use? When you talk about building a 'scene' or 'setting' are you referring to small scale maps to use as battlemats?

i suppose a scene would be things like inn's and streets and roads and such - yah, battlemaps - and by settings I mostly mean buildings and towns...

I am mapping out my world on a grand scale first - and developing the particulars as players move their way across the map...

So if I know a village is going to be ahead - I can map it out - or borrow maps to use for the game...

No profit involved, so I hope I am not stepping on anyone's toes...

I just posted my first map, and need to do a lot more work before it is exciting for other people to look at - but have been working in Photoshop Elements - sometimes with a tablet, sometimes with a mouse... depending on my mood.
