After a hiatus from table-top gaming, our group is back to playing. While hunting for map resources, I found this community, and absolutely love the work I see here.
I'm an old hand at Photoshop for my photography work, but relatively new to using it for mapping. I've already found a lot of great inspiration in these forums.

Dollhouse Syndrome = The temptation to turn a map into a picture, obscuring the goal of the image with the appeal of cute, or simply available, parts. Maps have clarity through simplification.
Thanks all - I'm happily surprised to see so many folks from nearby!

I'll put one in anywhere where there are enough pins that make it difficult to see where each person is from. So far we seem to have a lot in Vancouver / Washington district which may reflect the WotC origins - or not. Theres a few city hot spots but when a region is getting over populated then ill add another zoom level around it Quebec included...
Also when I went to Montreal (my fav foreign city !) everyone spoke french there. I thought everyone who lived there was bi-lingual.
