So perhaps you should tell us, why you want to make maps, maybe you've been a gamer like forever, maybe you're an author wanting illustrate novels, or maybe you just like to take on a new hobby and cartography is something you want to try. That's what most do in intros anyway.
Welcome to the Guild!
Check out our Tutorials section, maybe explore the Mapping Software in the Software forum, explore the Finished Maps forums and get inspiration. Once you get the mood, try and make us a map - we'll guide you to your desired result!
