Hello and nice to meet this community :)

I accidentally stumped over this site/forum and since I'm a big fan of maps and such, I thought I should join in, plus I may improve my English a little ;P ...

Anyways I'm looking forward being here, so please treat me kindly!

Welcome to the Guild, Miss Yuurei.

Please look around and make yourself at home. Have you ever thought of making your own maps? This can be a great place to learn how to make beautiful game maps for your own pleasure. If you do we can really help you.

Again, welcome!

"Yuurei" - isn't that Japanese for "ghost"?

@ Gameprinter That would be really great! I never actually had the heart to make one myself, well better said, I lacked patience :) Though maybe I'll try, thanks for the recommendation!
And yes Yuurei means Ghost/Spirit in japanese, but mine is horribly amateurish hahaha ...

@ Steel General, NeonKnight Thank you I appreaciate that!

@ Redrobes Hahaha ... thank you alot I'll tell her if I' ever to se her again! ;)

@ Hoel I'm from Russia, though I'm studying German in Vienna now! Hmm seems like languages are my second passion right after maps :)

Nice to meet you as well, Miss Yuurei. And knowing more than one language is always a good thing in my opinion. As it turns out, you might just have an opportunity to help out around here, especially when some of us are looking for something with a little linguistic authenticity. And, as others have said, don't be afraid to stick you fingers into the map making jar. Like you, I sometimes don't have much patience, but making maps is a good way to develop patience. Whether you make maps or not, though, definitely don't be afraid to comment on what you see here. That's the best thing about this forum in my opinion, so many sets of eyes that see different things and, in the long run, make us all better cartographers.

Thank you! I never seen it from that perspective, but I may approve that it really boosts your patience just like doing puzzles and drawing. But what I really think is great about mapping is the little dreamy, fantasy aspect, allowing you to imagine what where could be placed ... To me this buissnes seems very romantic :) So I'll try my best.
Of course I'd be really glad if I could help out somewhere translating scripts and some works!
But I'm really happy for this little insight of the forum! It's great to see how people that share the same passion can be on such a good communicative basis as here!

First off, welcome. It's always good to see another new face.

I completely agree with you about the "romance" of cartography. Some of these folks put quite a bit of passion into their maps, and it shows. The creative process of actually making a map can be a very satisfying one, indeed.

I think a Russian-themed map would be a wonderful concept, and one that I haven't seen yet. I'm sure that if someone approaches it, you'll be an invaluable resource for translating names!

Again, welcome. I hope your time here is as satisfying as mine has been.
