    Default roll20.net maps

    Hey guys, I just signed up to this because i wanted to see what it was all about. I play some Pathfinder and D&D sessions on roll20.net and have seen this website over many of the maps they offer. Although I have used some of those maps, I am often left without what map i desire. This would be the main reason i joined; to see what I could do to produce or find some more maps. Posts on this thread would be extremely helpful to me. Thanks!

    Welcome to the Guild. If you want to learn how to create your own maps you've come to the right place. If you want to find someone that could make a map for you you've come to the right place. Either way you've come to the right place

    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.

    Hey, I joined for the same reason and I'd suggest downloading gimp and following torstan's tutorial here.

    The dimensions you need for roll20.net are 1250x1250 pixels, with 50 pixel squares.

    Good luck

    Welcome to the Guild Riveridge Ranger! Like JT has already said, the Guild can help you accomplish either of these goals. If you want to learn how to create maps, check out the tutorials section. If you would like to commission a map, check out the Map requests section (but be sure to read the sticky on how to request a map).

    Cheers,
    -Arsheesh

    I'm not sure if this changed, but it seems to me that 70x70 pixels is the tile size currently...

    Hey RR et al.,

    I too am a roll20.net user. I've tried creating a map and it was an utter mess. Especially with scaling. So; I'll be checking out that tutorial. I'm not artist and I look forward to learning as much as I can from this forum. Oh; and I just found your Tapatalk entry too -- so I'm super stoked!

    I'm new as well, hoping to learn how to make some maps for Roll20, and the info in this thread alone will keep me busy for a while.
