Thread: Hello!

    Default Hello!

    Hi all,

    My name is Alan - the handle is a long standing joke from ol role-playing days. I am an amateur fantasy writer as well as a Gm of over 25 years.

    I have recently started running a PBEM sci-fi strategy game and having slogged through map generation using excel and shudder powerpoint to generate maps I thought I would look around and see how the pros did it as quite frankly my map generation sucked!

    Off to nose through the forums

    Puppies!

    Welcome to the Guild P72! Perusing the forums is a great idea. Course if, as it sounds, you are new to digital mapping, I'd also recommend starting off by reading Ravell's "Quickstart Guide to Fantasy Mapping". Practice going through a tutorial or two, and then throw up one of your WIP maps. That way you'll be sure to receive helpful feedback.

    Cheers,
    -Arsheesh
