Hi there. After meeting ravells at a con last weekend, and separately (and independently) identifying my main weakness in GMing con games is my total lack of maps / handouts / props, I've decided to finally do it and try to learn how to do some mapping. Mainly I'm interested in simple stuff I can stick in front of my players, and I am one of those people who believes they have no artistic talent whatsoever (although, as a musician and mathematician, I realise I'm probably deluding myself with that), so I guess my starting point is GIMP and some of the simple tutorials. I'm also more interested in quick and easy rather than accurate and complex maps. Anyway, neat site / forum / etc.
