View Full Version : Howdy!

Hello everyone, I've been blown away by the resources here and the maturity-level of the forum as well.

I'm a gamer from Saugus, California who likes designing adventures and maps for DnD 4e. I am a hobbyist in the realm of gaming, meaning that I collect a ton of stuff. I've played Gurps, Mutants and Masterminds, Spirit of the Century, Feng Shui, Savage Worlds, and every version of Dnd. There are probably some others there that I forgot.

I also like card games as well as strategy board games. Computer games fit in there too (I'm a recovering WoW-O'holic).

I was a Photoshop user 12 or 13 years ago when I did webpage design as a side job to get me through college. I'm new to Gimp, but some of the techniques are starting to come back to me as I work through tutorials.

I'm currently a teacher of 6th graders (all subjects). I have 3 boys of my own ranging in ages from 5 to 13, so free time is at a premium. I still manage to game, though, about 3 days out of the month, and designing maps for those games is a nice way to unwind in the evenings (preferably with a Bass ale or Guinness close at hand).

Thanks again all of you who contribute here; this is a great resource that cuts through a lot of learning curve for me.

Great to have you here! Can't wait to see your stuff...you should get your students into mapping too!!

They have Bass in California? I'm impressed!

Howdy, Davo. If you still have Photoshop kicking around you might get some use out of it still. Then again, if it's like version 2 then probably not :) I know that a lot of the stuff I do would work in version 6 (that's what I started with). Welcome and have fun.
