Welcome to the Guild.
I'm French and stumbled upon your guild while wandering on DeviantART. I don't have much experience in cartography but am quite interested in the craft. I have always been impressed by the fantasy maps you may find here and there; and the same goes for those I saw when I first got here earlier today. I actually drew a map once (for a RPG forum), and am currently reworking it for another RPG forum based on the same universe but another time period. I was quite unhappy with the first version (which is 2 years old) and am looking forward to "professionalising" it a little more as I complete it and resize it entirely. (I have a lot of work to do. XD There will be several maps, with detailed regions and stuff...) As I embrace it all, I feel very lucky to have found you. :) I hope to learn a lot with you!
Apart from that, I'm coming to the end of my studies as a translator, my languages being French, English and Spanish. Some time ago I translated stories from English to French on the Internet, unfortunately the lack of time prevents me from continuing on this path. I spend the little free time I have administrating 2 RPG forums (one based on Avatar: The Last Airbender, the other dedicated to an original heroic fantasy world). This is mostly the reason why I can't really translate anymore, haha! Administrating and role playing are time killers.
I also like computing and designing. And playing some video games. (Lately, mostly Assassin's Creed.)
I think that's it. \o/

Welcome to the Guild.
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.
