    Default Greetings from Boo the Gentleman Caller

    Hi all,

    I just wanted to introduce myself. I am an amateur cartographer, I guess. I found my way to this website in a very roundabout way (in which I was - surprise! - looking to commission the creation of a map). I've been been making very crude, very simple maps for years. I started making my own pen and paper RPGs when I was a kid (but believe it or not, to this day I have never played a real pen and paper RPG!), often inspired by a wide range of influences: Tolkein, Lewis, even old SNES-era RPGs. I once even made a Yoshi (of Super Mario Brothers fame) pen-and-paper!

    Long story short, I've been lurking for a few days and finally caved, registered, and now I'm posting. The tutorials I've read are great and this really seems to be an impressive (and mature) online community. I'm glad to be a part!

    I don't know how much I'll be posting. I love writing, and a current writing project is what has prompted me to start working on cartography a bit more than I have in the past. This current map is really kicking my butt, and with as little time as I have (I work in year-round education, 50 hours per week, and have young children), it's difficult to find time for all of my hobbies. Writing is my first passion and, in my journey to finally finish something I have started, is my primary focus.

    Anyway, nice to meet you all and I look forward to learning more from you all.

    Welcome to the Guild !!

    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.
