Am I late? Nope, I think what's important is that the first post pops in here ^^

Myself? Which self? Ah, possibly the one who lead me here from that remote country of Cheese. I'm a dungeon master before a drawer. I've moved to online roleplaying a little more than a year ago. Lately, I've been using MapTool to handle everything related to map and token moves. Yet, when you play online, you need better map that the one drawn in half a second... So I'm looking to better my maps (well, should say "draw passable maps") and finally found you. I use Dungeon Designer (add-on of CC3) to quickly make my dungeons. I don't really get how to draw a beautiful map with the CC3 "core drawing tools", so I guess I'll look at the different tutorials to use Gimp.

Ah, and also, I'm impressed with some maps I saw around here (that's a true feeling). I'd be happy to use some if I can find a way to get them in my scenarii. Don't expect tons of posts, I'll only publish reusable and beautiful maps, that is to say I'm not publishing anything before ages... yet I've got some hope to achieve it one day ;)

Arkyss, Welcome to the Guild!

But don't give up on DD3 or CC3. I use them exclusively, and I have been redoing the maps for Wizards' Mods.I have so far done THUNDERSPIRE and PYRAMID OF SHADOWS and almost finished TROLLHAUNT. Soon I will Start the DROW mod. All of them were done with just DD3 and BITMAPS and the odd inserted image from another source. Nothing more really.

Welcome to the guild -

Also, if you are willing to post while you are learning there are tons of people here who can help you out with useful pointers and tips. So, if you aren't worried about your ego (because yeah, some of the maps on here are incredible) just go for it, you will only get better that much faster.

I agree with Neonknight, don't give up on CC3/DD3 just yet. It's a though piece of software to master, but once you have done so you can quickly achieve great things.
