Hi everyone,

My name is Gaz, DungeonMasterGaz. I got my name playing arcade games when I was 14. Someone always had GAZ on the high score table so, because Iíd just started playing D&D, I put DMG on the high scores so I could be identified, and the name stuck. So did the roleplaying. Now itís 26 years and 1000ís of games later and Iím just as passionate as ever.

Iíve been lurking on this forum, with increasing regularity, since the back end of 2008 and, let me tell you, what a bunch of amazing cartographers you all are! The maps that you all post are the best Iíve ever come across. Pure quality, and thatís the reason I keep coming back. Iíve spent so many hours browsing through all the posts and drooling over your outstanding maps that I thought it was time to introduce myself.

My love of maps and cartography started when I opened The Hobbit and my gaze fell on Thorinís map. Since then Iíve used everything, from the squared pages of my maths books, cello taped together and using brown felt-tip triangles for mountains and green felt-tip circles for forests to Photoshop and Gimp to pursue my passion. Right now I use the Campaign Cartographer suite for my maps, simply because I lack time, nowadays, and CC seems to be really fast for me to use while producing some great results. Itís the kind of speed I need running two games of D&D!

So, thanks to everyone for the untold hours of entertainment Iíve had browsing your excellent work. I hope I can repay the favour by sharing some of mine with you.
