Kobold Quarterly is running a series of interviews with cartographers in the industry. Today's one is with Ralf Schemmann of Campaign Cartographer:

Edit: It looks like it's been taken down. I'm sure it will go back up in due course. I'll update this and bump the thread when it does.

(Not only do we see a familiar style in there (congrats Clercon!) but theres also a nice beefy plug for the CG at the end of the article.)

A previous articles in the series with Sean MacDonald can be found here:

Hmmmm...Getting a 404 error on the Link.

Is this an article one needs a subscription for?

Looks like it got taken down again. I was a little surprised to see two interviews go up in the same day. I'll keep an eye on it and post again when it goes back up.

None of the online KQ content requires a subscription, so it was just a minor error I guess. The Sean MacDonald interview is still worth a read though.

Turns out it should be up tomorrow. I'll repost the link when it is.

Thanks Torstan (where have you been?) I'm really looking forward to reading it. Sean's article was a great read, thanks for posting too.

Cheers Ravells - been a little busy with one thing and another (Halls of the Mountain King is one of them - lots of large battlemaps and one nice regional for Dwarves of the Ironcrags. The physics has been kind of busy too).

Anyway, here's the link one day on:

Another interview up on the site. This time with some reprobate called Jonathan Roberts. Don't know who he thinks he is....

I enjoyed that. How many times did you manage to squeeze in the words Cartographers' Guild again? 3? 4? Niiice ;)

:) As many times as I reasonably could. Now that's two weeks in a row we've had the CG in the front page interview. The guild deserves it. I can think of no better place for aspiring mappers to be. I wouldn't be where I am with these maps if it weren't for the guild.

Yay! Thanks Torstan, excellent read too!

Thanks Ravells. Seems like it made the front page of Enworld too. Nice work by the KQ team.
