    Post Greetings!

    I stumbled on this great forum through a link from RP Tools. I'm a long-time role-player and returned to the art a couple years ago when I brought one of my old campaigns out of traditional paper form and forward into the digital realm. Making maps and props has of course become a necessity and has eventually led me here. Great to find such a community.

    I played D&D for many years, and most of my campaigns have been high fantasy, but right now I'm running a science fiction campaign using Mekton. Some of you may recognize my avatar as a mobile suit from Zeta Gundam. That's the world I'm set in. For the most part though, despite being in a science fiction setting, most maps I find I need are general purpose terrain. Others fall in the category of modern city scapes or have some inclusion of a few modern elements. Very few things would actually fall into your "Sci-Fi" section of the site here, but maybe I can offer some content over there as well in the future.

    I'm using primarily Photoshop, though I use Fireworks often in the creation of various objects for map use, as well as tokens. I'm a graphic designer by trade, so I know the software fairly well, but I lack experience applying it specifically to map making. Hoping to learn along the way and perhaps put some of my own things out there at some point.

    The work I have seen displayed here is very impressive. Its fun to be part of a community that inspires such dedication. Maybe I'll drop in on a monthly contest. I joined too late to enter the style one which might have been an ideal starting point, but we'll see if I can get in on the next one.

    See you in various threads!
