Hi from Sweden. And yes, the mountains, lakes, coasts, and forests here do sometimes seem like a Nordic fantasy land that would inspire any fantasy map maker.
I'm an Irish writer and I currently live at the edge of one of these dark forests. I get much of my inspiration from wandering through it, especially at dusk. I write short stories and I am currently finishing off a novel. I am also the author of the Parawerthan blog, a serial fantasy diary documenting the adventures of my alter ego Raymond as he journeys through an alternative dimension called The Parawerthan.
Now Iím planning to add some more colour to my blog. Thatís why Iím here. Iím hoping to pick up some tips and ideas on how to create a good map that my blog readers can easily reference.
