    Info Greetings

    Hiya everyone!!!

    My name is Jeffrey Quinn and I'm a freelance game designer and novice cartographer. "Novice cartographer" may be a bit lofty... "map dabbler" is far more appropriate. Though I have many published writing and design credits (everything from Thunderhead Games and Mystic Eye Games to Wizards of the Coast and Swords & Sorcery Studios), I have only a single (albeit, embarrassing) published cartography credit in Dave Arneson's Blackmoor Campaign Setting (produced by Zeitgeist Games, published by Goodman Games).

    I love the "old school" feeling maps... but some of the newer overland/continent maps I've seen are beginning to win my old heart over. I use Dunjinni, Photoshop, Corel, zMapper, and Dungeon Crafter. I'll pretty much use any graphicor cartography program out there (my first forays into cartograhy was a very long time ago when I bought Campaign Cartographer through the mail from an ad in Dungeon magazine in the early 90s).

    I'm looking forward to advancing my abilities, learning from the tutorials, and making new friends and contacts.

    Welcome! What games have you designed? I've done a small amount of that, myself.

    I've done a few things (somewhere in the 20+ writing and design credits). The ones I'm most proud of are (in order of swelling pride):

    Dungeon Crawl Classics #1: Idylls of the Rat King (Goodman Games)
    Dave Arneson's Blackmoor (Goodman Games)
    Dave Arneson's Blackmoor: The Redwood Scar (Goodman Games)
    Dave Arneson's Blackmoor: The Wizard's Cabal (Goodman Games)
    Interludes: Brief Expeditions to Bluffside (Mystic Eye Games)
    Geonosis and the Out Rim Worlds (Wizards of the Coast)
    Advanced Players Handbook (Swords & Sorcery Studios)

    I'm actually working on a redux of my cartography credit in the Blackmoor campaign guide. I'll post the whole story of the map and the reason behind the redux in a seperate thread when my map is close to done.

    A definite Ind Pro id say With some of that game design experience you could tell us more about the trials and tribulations of working in that field. Lots of people here making books and needing a map for it or doing a board game or even a full on game design.

    Welcome,

    We haven't seen much talk on zMapper also. Care to enlighten us there ?
