Thread: Hello Hello

    Default Hello Hello

    Thought I'd be polite and do like the rule says, and start a hellothread

    Relatively new GM, been GMing for a couple of months now. I had a sudden need to make a planet map and realised - I don't actually know where to start Some random googling found links here, and now I'm finding my way through the forums.

    Pleasure to be here

    Welcome, Xanthia ! Do you know what kind of look (and what kind of planet) you're after? Do you see any of the tutorials that are along the lines of your goal? If so, fire one up and take a stab at it ... while you may be facing a sudden need, you may be happier long-term if you fiddle around some, and go with your third or fifth attempt. We'll be glad to help you along, if you'll post your efforts in a work-in-progress thread as you go.

    Do you already have some graphics software at hand? Or are you looking to tackle this world with pen and paper?

    Thanks for the welcome guys

    jbgibson - I'm looking mostly just for a linework whole world map. A few continents, islands, major geographical features that sort of thing. The catch is that I need it for this Friday PM, so right now I'm just looking for easy stuff like random coastline generation and things like that to I can toss together a sketchy kind of map.

    The world itself is fairly... vague at the moment. I'm running a Warhammer 40,000 RP - Rogue Trader if you know it - and the world itself is mostly flavour. It's a low tech-level planet, entirely populated by tribals, no cities or infrastructure to speak of. Mostly forested and rather temperate, with a little variance in terms of a bit of desert, perhaps frozen polar zones. The focus of the adventure will mostly be on the largest continent, where a ship crashed 2000 years ago and formed a mountain range where the planet basically overgrew it.

    I've got some limited experience with GIMP, so that's what I'm working with at the moment, though I may be able to get my hands on Photoshop as well, to have a play around with.
