    Default Hobbyist RPG Designer says hello to everyone...

    Greetings,

    I am an IT-Guy from Hungary in his late twenties. I am glad to be here and first of all I would like to apologize if my English is not sophisticated enough, it is a learned language for me, and I do not use it quite often nowadays.
    I play paper and pencil role playing games as player and as a GM since my early college days, and that was about 10 years ago. During that time I've read tons of RPG Books and I got to know many campaign settings and imaginary worlds. Some of them were very rich and complex, some others were simple but fun.
    But all of these worlds were unique an entertaining at a specific degree, and then came my great decision: I need one too
    Of course now I clearly understand, that my work can't compete with any of the "official" profit oriented Big Books of the Big Companies.
    But I don't do it for profit, I do it just for fun, for the learning process during creation, and for my friends to play with.
    As I reached the point, when I needed a map for my world I've done a research on the Internet and I found the Guild.
    I have learned in the past six months very much from the Tutorials and Threads of various members and I want to say a big "Thank you" to all of them.
    I hope that my mapping skills will be improved with time, and some day i will be able to give some help and value back to the Community.

    Thanks for reading, and have a nice day!
    Kind regards: Narogi

    Welcome to the Guild, Narogi! First, your English sounds just fine Try out a few of the tutorials over in the How-To section, and feel free to post up works in progress or questions as you go so we can help you through tough spots or give suggestions.

    Happy Mapping!

    Welcome to the Guild and thanks for saying hello. Hope to see some maps from you. The good thing about posting is you get more helpful feedback.

    Thanks for the kind words Men,

    funny that you two are the first ones who post in my thread, I've read a Tutorial or Thread from both of you and I found both really useful.
    Thanks for it.
    Anyway I recently opened my first WIP thread, but it needs some time till it will be visible, because an Admin should approve it too if I understood it correctly.
    All criticism will be welcome.

    I think you just need to hit 5 posts and the world opens up to you. They force new folks to make the posts as it cuts way down on the spam.

    I think Gidde is a woman! (If my memory serves, but it's not a good memory!)

    Yeah, Ravs, your memory is fine. I really need to get some kind of feminine avatar pic in my profile... but in the meantime I don't mind being one of the guys

    Oh, sorry about the gender issues :S

    As a man I mostly have the assumption that my conversation partner on a foreign forum is male too.
    I will keep it in mind for later on
