    Post A salutation from the past

    It was nearly four o'clock when a young men push the door of the Cartographers' Guild. He waited some times for somebody to arrive by studying the maps on the wall and finaly took the information paper from the secretary. He then fill it with ... well, what is asked, informations.

    (Nick)Name : Hinaloth F. Lester
    Age : 18 years
    Sex : Pink
    He returned it to the person in front of him and leave, returning to his duty ... sleeping, eating and reading.





    Hi !
    As you could have read uphand ('cause of course you've read it aren't you ), I'm Hinaloth F. Lester, Rémy of my true name, I've 18 years (for some days left ... nearly 19) and I love Roleplaying (even if I oftenly hate my Roleplay-mate ...).
    I'm a french, so my english is still ... well, let's say that I still have some work in the futur .
    What else ... ow, yeah, one thing. I'm the son of a Cartographer, so don't ask why I love maps :p

    May the mapping tools be with you, always.
    Hinaloth, strange idiot.


    EDIT : Oh, and one more thing : I'm under Linux (Unbuntu 8.04) so many of the program won't work... sad thing T.T

    Before he could reach the door a side portal opened and out bounded a slightly cherubic looking man in his (mid) thirties wearing a large blue wide brimmed hat that had the letters "CL" embroidered on the front in glittering diamante patterns. The man stuck out a large hand, well gnarled from years spent over a keyboard and spoke in a low but slightly nasal voice "Howdy, welcome, wanna map a whole world?" Hinaloth took a step back as the man began flicking at specks of dust on a large composite map on the East wall, that seemed to be in the style of a collage of many different styles and mapping conventions. What, he wondered, had he let himself in for?

    Hi Hinaloth and welcome to the guild. Dont worry about the English, its the mapping that counts. If you are looking for something that works in Linux and really does the business, try Gimp. Otherwise feel free to post anything you do. The only bad maps are the ones that never posted. Have a great time.
