well met fellow mapsters,
i'm new to cartography stuff. been working on a fantasy world for a couple years now, did a lot of PnP mapping, got tired of the endless redoings, decided to try a software approach.
recently started using ProFantasy stuff, just Fractal Terrains so far. very much pleased with this approach VS the PnP way of doing things.
hoping to glean some world-building hints and helps here.
Later: was pointed to an excellent FTPro tutorial by the designer, waldronate: Tutorial for Cartographer’s Guild. _VERY_ helpful for FT noobz.

Look around, try some of the tutorials, ask questions, post up some of your work!

Welcome to the Guild!
thanks everyone. i'm trying to get started with the world-building thing using Fractal Terrains. anyone know of a good noobie guide for this?
i've got some moderately detailed ideas for parts of my world but i like the randomness that FT introduces for the parts i haven't settled on. that said i can't really figure out how to do what i want in FT, hence the request.
i've watched the tutorials for CC3 -- which i also have and expect to port my FT world into it -- and was hoping for something like that with with FT ... but no joy yet.
more questions than answers i'm afraid.
