    Default Completely ignorant newbie

    Hi! I am (as my thread title suggests) a completely ignorant newbie to mapping. My interest comes from some fantasy stories I'm writing, for which I need to create maps. Sadly, I lack any artistic talent whatsoever (my children laugh at my efforts). So software tools is clearly the way I need to go...

    As much as possible, I want the worlds I create to be geographically plausible. Lacking any training in geology/geography and the related sciences, I've been trying to read up on things. Knowing the physical settings for my characters is important to me. Hence, again, the need for mapping.

    I look forward to learning here!

    Welcome to the Guild JDL! There are a lot of good discussion on geography here that may be of use to you if you do a bit of digging around. This is a pretty friendly and helpful community so feel free to ask any questions you may have and put up WIPs of your work for constructive criticism.

    Cheers,
