Hello everyone! I'm a total newbie to this sort of map-making, and this looked like a good place to hang out and absorb some collective wisdom. I've always hand-sketched rough maps for my own purposes, but I've never really assembled anything proper. What background I have comes entirely from RPG gaming (most of which is done online, for lack of a face to face group), and I'm looking to begin my map making with a setting I've been working on conceptually for a number of years now. It's progressed to the point when it's time to lay down some locations and work out some naming languages (something for another forum, I suppose).
