Welcome, George. I'll just bet if you take a whack at a few of the Guild tutorials, you'll find you can create perfectly serviceable maps. Shoot, if you figure you can't draw a straight line... there's plenty a map that doesn't NEED straight lines. If you are too picky to put up with mistakes, well I'll wager the first ten Guilders you ask will tell you it's often the "mistakes" that turn out to be inspired opportunities. "Too big a blob" just adds acres to the territory! Every one of us started out unsure of which end of the pencil to put to paper, just figuring it out at different ages :-).
