That sounds like fun!
How about we map the Cartographer's Guild as a challenge? It could be a world map, City, or complex, whatever way you want to try and depict the Guild.
If we got a nice enough map maybe it could be used as a graphical way to navigate the website. If not, it would still be fun. Of course, Arcana has to be put there in an Ivory Tower, hehe.
That sounds like fun!
I'd vote yes but would NEVER have the courage to actually try it. (Besides the innate magic of this place makes any truly accurate mapping impossible. Although I'm pretty sure I know how to get to the city asylum..I think..)
Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

Maybe one question to ask is how many of us already have (a) Cartographers' Guild on a map somewhere. That'd be a fun starting point. I want to see Crayon's version :-).
I have a half begun map of Cartograhpers Guild lying around somewhere - never got around to finish it

From the lands of the Noobarians to the City of Realists (whose streets are ceaselessly patrolled by the River Police), it's a good idea.

This sounds fun, maybe a particular map feature for each group in the guild, such as the Garrison of the River Police or the Halls of the Architects for the Buildings?Structure section.
People come and people go. I walk amongst them, I see their faces; but none see mine. I pass them in the streets but nary a glance is spared my way, for what interest would they have in a Wanderer? Not of this world... Forever Alone... Forever Wandering... LoneWandererD...
