Hello there, I'm Melissa/Mel/Missy, was actually referred here when I asked a mapping question on another forum. Though I don't know if the person who referred me is a member here, or just aware of the place.

Anyways, I only recently realized how little I understand about cartography despite being interested in it. So hopefully this place helps with that. I saw links for people brand new to it, though at the moment I'm resisting the urge to download anything until I finish a paper I'm working on.

I've done a lot of pencil and paper maps, especially as a child, for video games, stories, and tabletop RPGs. Generally nothing fancy though. I don't consider myself a very good artist, especially with colour. These days I pretty much design dungeon maps for fun.

Well, I look forward to being here.
