    Post Greetings and Well Met

    Hello!

    I am new to the site!

    My name is Jason, I am an aspiring author, and have been developing a world - specifically, one that is medieval/fantasy themed for my works. My first work, tentatively entitled "The Grey Totem" has been started, though I am not very far in, as I'm trying to develop said world. Part of that includes making the map for the world. My own cartography skills are... pretty much absent. I try and I try to use the Profantasy software, but I'll be honest. A five year old could probably do better then me. I'm still trying though, though I will admit, I'm looking for someone who might be interested in helping with the map creation - whether it be a commision, or whether they want to help with world building as well in general. (Sidenote: My goal is for my world to be big and open enough for anyone to write a story within said world)

    Anyway, looking forward to seeing folks' work, and definitely gonna put in a request or two!

    Welcome to the Guild. CC3 is a bit of bear to learn to use but don't give up. It can help you create some amazing maps once you get the hang of it. There are several users of CC3 here that would be glad to help with any questions you might have.

    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.

    Thanks for the welcome! I may decide to post a WIP and try to learn CC3 better rather then get someone to make my map. I'll definitely be looking for input though!
