Introduction from an archaeologist and old school gamer
I recently joined cause this seems like a great community of like-minded people. I'm a professor at Texas A&M Galveston (Archaeology). I absolutely love maps, and I'm just now beginning to learn about the superb resources available. I'm also an old school gamer. I played AD&D until about 1993. I recently looked at the new edition of the game and found it has been replaced by something vaguely resembling what I used to play.
I don't know what I will be doing here. Possibly I will be trying to implement the awesome artistic skills of some of the members into archaeological or museum end-products.
Or, possibly I will re-ignite my interest in gaming and apply my 20 years of expertise as an anthropologist and archaeologist to develop exciting and culturally consistent gaming worlds.
We will see,
