Thread: Another hello

    Default Another hello

    Hello everyone,

    I blindly stumbled upon this fine website today - turns out it's just the place I've been looking for without even knowing it! There's some fantastic stuff to look at. Recently, some friends and I have set up a boardgames company and published a couple of games that we're quite proud of. Anyway, we are starting to get to the point where we need to knock up maps for games so I'm sure the tutorials will prove useful over the next few months (I have no scanner ).

    Like a lot of people here, I'm a boardgamer and a roleplayer, so naturally I've been drawing maps for ages - particularly cities. Whilst I do thoroughly enjoy doing the whole map thing, I'm primarily a writer so I'd love to get involved with collaborating on something if anything is happening. Currently I'm working on a world that I'm trying to make as weird and different as possible: the only plants are exclusively fungi, animals are mostly insects or lizards, people travel on the backs of armoured sky-jellyfish, and the only places humans can survive in large numbers are craters and ravines.

    If I may, I'd like to begin my stay here with a barrage of maps! This is Rittan, a large temporate landmass populated by Orcs, Kobolds, Goblins, Gnolls and Minotaurs. I've mostly abandoned this one (It's mostly pretty derivitive, save what I did with the Gnoll culture), but if anyone is interested I can start a thread complete with more info about the world.

    Welcome to the Guild Lorgath! Those are some nice hand drawn maps you've got there. I hope you do decide to stick around and contribute more of your work. I know there are several other writers here as well.
