I'm a long time gamer, and I've been using this hand drawn map (if I may use the term so loosely) to tell stories for more than 20 years. I've never really developed the skills to flesh it out with anything other than words. Thanks to all of you, however, I find that now I have some direction, tools sufficient to the task, and inspiration drawn from all of the beautiful maps you've created. I don't know much, but I imagine I'll be learning a bunch.

For starters, I'll be doing the big work with Gimp and Wilbur, following Arsheesh's Eriond tutorial. Please feel free to let me know if there's a better way to do things as I go along. Thanks for being here!
