    Post Newbie

    Hello,
    After an almost endless journey (3 days) trough WWW i stranded here. I searched for maps & ideas for my pen-and-paper RPG group. I was & still am impressed of the quality of the maps made by the guild members. So I started drawing some myself to improve our RPG-experience & benefit from your experience.

    I used Photoshop CS 4, Illustrator CS 4 & Vectormagic to create the attached one; my fourth try. Its the one i like the most. I count on every kind of feedback.

    Nicely done!! I love the hand drawn style you have there. I think you will fit right in here. Have fun.

    Welcome to the Guild and have some rep for putting up a map in your first post.

    If you want to post other maps, you could post them in the WIP (Work In Progress) threads, or if you think they are finished, in the Finished Map Forums. You would get more guidance by posting in the WIPs.

    Pretty nice and different in style, which is a good thing. All that is missing is what each square is in size so that we can know what the scale is. Good job.

    Welcome to the Guild Lutwik, and great job on your first posted map. Aside from a scale, the map could benefit from a title and/or little bit of signage explaining just what the map is for. Very clear though: not overly cumbersome, and good colors and contrast between light and shadows. I like, have some rep.

    Cheers,
