Welcome to the guild. There are indeed some really good tutorials on the site. They've helped me a lot.
Hello there. I recently found this great site while looking for some maps for Keep on the Shadowfell, Thunderspire Labyrinth and Pyramid of Shadows. Love some of the maps I found here, using them in a campaign right now. I haven't played D&D since High School but recently got back into it. After playing a few months I came up with a cool idea for a custom campaign I wanted to try but was having trouble finding players in my area. Decided to search the internet and found out about Maptool. Well, long story short before coming up with my own campaign I wanted to test out Maptool and that led me to running Keep on the Shadowfell which led me here. While my players are running through KotS, Thunderspire and PoS I am going to start attempting to build my world and making maps. Started looking at some of the tutorials here and great stuff. You also seem like a very helpful community with lots of constructive criticism, so I will probably be returning frequently for help and advice.
Sorry for the wall of text there, I get carried away sometimes.

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.
