Welcome to the Guild Isibane777!
I came across this site a few weeks ago as I was looking for resources on what a good map looks like and how to create one. I do not have access to any special programs or fancy tools. Just good 'ol pen, paper and a computer with wonderful resources like these.
I've come to work on a map for my book, because as you may know, travel times and the hardships of terrain is difficult to gauge without at least a personal maps of cities and environments. I've looked over maps of Alagaesia from Christopher Paolini's Eragon cycle, JRRT, and Terry Brooks but that's about all.
Well, other than that, thank you for allowing me to be here and I look forward to the treasure of inspiration I will find here. :)
