    Post Hello Everyone

    Hi All,

    I am a 35 year old software developer for a small company in Columbus, Ohio. I have also been a big gamer, since the days of Diablo 1 and Ultima Online when I was in college. It is what drove me to learn game development, which I do as a hobby.

    I love fantasy and sci-fi, both areas I am highly passionate about. Since the days of temple of asphai on my commodore 64, to Diablo 1 in my college years, I have dreamed of creating my own fantasy world (and sci-fi one down the road). I am currently focusing on creating my Fantasy World of Arillian.

    As such, I have decided to first flush out the lore of the world, before beginning any type of game development on it. I have decided to focus on the geography first, and went and bought Campaign Cartographer, and Dunjdinni. I also got a domain (www.ArillianMultiverse.com) which will house all the lore for Arillian. Its not hosted yet, but I am going to build an interactive viewer, for all the maps created, so you can drill down from world->continental-> governemnt/hotspot-> city/dungeon.

    My first maps I posted on the CC3 forums for review:

    Here are the thumbnails of what I have done so far:

    World Map - Work In progress, only Krava has been filled out so far



    Krava Continental Map



    Corica - #1 on the Krava Continental Map


    Kromgor - #14 on the Krava Continental Map



    I am looking forward to future discussions and learning a lot from what the community has to offer

    Welcome Skaryn, good to see you here on the Guild forum as well
    I commented extensively on your maps on the Profantasy forum... but now I can also give you some reputation.

    Long live Ultima Online!

    Thanks Neon and Gandwarf! I do appreciate all the feedback you have given me so far Gandwarf, it would seem I have passed the rivers initiation on this forum I think Looking forward to reading through all the forums tonight, after doing your city designer tutorials

    Oh, and if you want more feedback on your maps, you should post them in the regional mapping forum as a work in progress. You will get more comments that way as this is more of an introduction forum.

    Nice maps. I think Krava Continental Map is my favorite (the mountain especially).

    Welcome to the guild.
