Hello from DadGum.
Just wanted to drop you a line and say I love this forum and that I joined. I live in Kansas City and I enjoy being a DM. I may ask some questions now and again as I am hoping to learn how to design and build some good solid battle maps. Thanks to everyone who puts time and effort into this forum and the maps contained herein!
Welcome to the Guild DadGum! I've got friends who live near Kansas City, it's a great city (love the BBQ)! Hang around here long enough and you'll definitely be able to create battlemaps of your own. Do you have any software yet? If not, I'd check out Ravells "Quick-start Guide to Fantasy Mappiing" located at the top of the Members Introduction page. It covers most of the basic questions that you might be having right about now. Anyway, happy mapping.
welcome to the guild dadgum - looking forward to seing your works :)
