This is indeed a nice place. I came here with similar intentions and my mind nearly exploded from the innumerable possibilities. Dramatization? Maybe, but I did start drinking too much coffee so I could stay up late to create maps. Welcome.
Hi, as you can tell, I'm a new member here.
I was talking with a friend a few weeks ago and we were discussing worldbuilding and art as well, and I was talking about how I dislike people and much prefer describing/writing/drawing places. Describing landscapes, scenery etc rather than the actual personalities and appearances of people.
Well, when I was looking on Bay12 I saw a link to this site regarding the challenge about DF maps. I thought this would be a good place to start exploring the possibility of making maps as something artistic I can work on.
It's a nice place you have here
Welcome to the Guild Graknorke! Several other people came here after hearing about the challenge with the DF maps as well; it's possible you already know some folks here. Anyway please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
