Glad to have ya here.
Gonna try to keep this short, was on my way to bed. (almost three in the morning here)
I've just started reading the Wheel of Time books, after years of my friend trying to convince me, and anyhow I decided that I absolutely need a map to look at.
I tend to do that, becuse, without going too deep, maps are to me a combined manifestation of intellicence and beaty.
I guess I've always had that artsy streek to me, but its always been bent to the more informational and practical kind - things like fonts, layouts, character presentation and maps.
Anyhow, I stumbled in here and my entire awereness told me that this was something I've been looking for.
So, I hope I'll have time soon come back and familiarize myself with this beautiful place.
Oh, and if it helps as a presentation, my connection to cartography comes mainly from sailing and pen & paper roleplaying. (and other gaming for that matter)
Glad to have ya here.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)

Welcome! I couldn't get into that series myself, but that won't stop me from admiring a map of it bring it!
welcome looking very much forward to seing your map, the maps in the books are rather crude.

Hey, I said nothing about making one. I was looking for one.
But now that it's mentioned, I guess its a good idea.
There are plenty of maps around of the westlands, but they all seem to be rather bland.
Oh, and thanks for the warm welcomes
Welcome to the Guild!
Well, the way you phrased it, I interpreted as you wanted to make one
Heck, the thing that brought me here was that I was looking for some one off advice on a wallpaper I was building, next thing you know I'm stuck here - it's worth hanging out and trying your hand at making something.. the worst that will happen is that you'll learn how to work with graphics programs better than you ever thought possible
