Reading comprehension has rarely been something of which I am accused. I didn't notice the reference to the tutorial was already in your post.

I am especially gifted in the lack of artistic ability department. To make up for that lack a little, I do write some software. http://www.cartographersguild.com/at...ing-wilbur.pdf describes a process that can generate fairly plausible rivers with very little in the way of artistic input (if you can paint white blobs on a black background, you can use this process). It takes some CPU power, memory, and a copy of MS Windows among other things.
And thanks for the tip Waldronate. I think that I'm getting the hang of things now.
