    Thanks for the rep. Until you replied, I was worried I was out of line for posting that. Glad it was taken as intended.

    In your ancient but always the best tutorial on making regional maps (I'll find the link and put it at the bottom) you mention using a certain gimp script for making (I think) a type of blur or offset. I have reread all 15 pages (at 40 posts per) today twice, and I must be going blind. ANy idea which one I moight be referring to? It wasnt one of your own i dont think, which is why I am having trouble finding it.
    (I'll come back with the tut link in question shortley)

    EDIT: The Link
    http://www.cartographersguild.com/showthread.php?1142-Award-Winner-Using-GIMP-to-Create-an-Artistic-Regional-RPG-Map

    EDIT: Answered my own question. Felimage Noise FIlter

    As always, we all apreciate you and all your efforts here!

    Yeah, I found the picture at Daz3D galleries. I ROTFLMAO when I saw it and thought it'd make a nice avatar. The artist titled it "It's Never That Easy."
