Just joined the guild and thought I would say hello. I have not done anything in mapping (or fantasy RP for that matter0 in many years but have an urge to rediscover it. I decided to use ProFantasy CC3 software because I really loved some of the ample maps I saw created with it. I am most interested in creating what I consider 'classic' fantasy maps (Lord of the Rings style) rather than anything photorealistic.
The world I am creating has 4 or 5 major kingdoms and an assortment of small independent islands. If I could ask for a bit of early advise, do you recommend starting with the less detailed world map and then move to more detailed region maps or build the more detailed regions and combine them in a reduced scale world map?

Thanks, I appreciate any thoughts.
