    Thanks for all the info on bidding and undercutting and what not, but unfortunately we do not pay commissions up front. Sure, you might be thinking "Good luck with that..." and I fully expect that Nevermet Press is not the sort of thing most artists, writers or cartographers will want to get involved in simply becuase we do not pay any commissions. It's all about revenue sharing and crowd sourcing. As I'm very new to the publishing industry I have to honestly say that I'm not experienced enough to know how much a good map costs, or even what an acceptable bid would be. So, happliy, our business model somewhat removes that issue from the equation. Everyone shares in the success of failure of the company by the quality of the content they develop.

    Hopefully we'll get lucky and one or two of the cartgraphers on this forum who are not buried in commission work (congrats to you btw!) will find the time to work with us. In the meantime, thanks again! and drop by sometime!

    @ jonathanjacobs:
    I totally wasn't meaning to point a finger at you, nor at anybody in the guild, nor trying to demand or impose contract conditions from anybody. I just went off on this weird tangent, you know? But it's an interesting weird tangent, you gotta admit, despite being doomed to toothlessness.

    No worries. I didn't see any fingers.

    If my encounter mapping skills existed I'd give this a go but sadly I have never worked at that scale...looks like I got some practice to do.
    If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
