Might I say first of all I am utterly BLOWN AWAY by you guys! I've been trying to make my own D&D world from scratch, and I'm starting with the geology of the world first of all and was googling for some tips and tricks to cartography - Wow did I hit the mother load with all of you!!
I'm looking forward to posting my initial sketches and having you all completely trash them and tell me where I'm going wrong and what I'm doing right, so will talking to you all soon!
Good luck, dude! I'm new here too.
