I thought I'd just pop my head in and say hello
I'm quite a newcomer to the whole fantasy-cartography thing - I was creating an RPG world with a few friends and we realised that it'd be a little easier to define races and borders if we had an idea what the place physically looked like. "No worries" said I, whipping out photoshop I thought this would take about half an hour.
That was about four weeks, 30 appalling maps and many, many late nights ago.
Luckily I found this haven for the weary mapmaker along the way and while at first I was a bit over-awed by what the people on here were accomplishing I decided that I'm going to work through the tutorials and then have another crack at it.
