Redfox - Welcome to the Guild. You're gonna love it here.
I found this site whilst Googling for Fractal Terrains tutorials, and thought I'd stop by and say hi properly
ATM I'm world-building for a fantasy novel I'm intending to write later this year, and although I have a preliminary sketch map of the area I'm writing about, I thought I would get a better handle on the region's history if I knew what the rest of the world looked like! Of course, having read Jared Diamond's "Guns, Germs and Steel" I already know that I need some adjacent lands with similar climates to facilitate the development of civilisation, but apart from that I don't have any fixed plans...
Anyway, hi all!
"They come for the search engine hit and stay for the witty banter..."
Hope you stick around. If you have any specific mapping/worldbuilding questions just start a thread and ask away.
