My name is Steve HelselI am 33 years old, I have a wife and seven kids, I work as Corrections Officer in rural Indiana. I am a transplant from the south suburbs of Chicago. Like many of you I grew up playing dungeons and dragons. I have hand drawn many maps over the years. Though I still play fantasy rpg's namely pathfinder and I hope to utilize my CC3 software to this end, the real reason I am so into this is that I wrote a novel. While I try to get it published I am going to write another. The first story is fairly self contained in a locality, I would undoubtably benifit from mapping, but it was not neccesary. My next book is going to take place over a much larger area and therefore I will need proficiency in cartograpy. Thank you for welcoming me into your community.
