Hello Guys,

I'm brand new here. I've been lurking here and there for about a month. I've finally decided to dive in and participate in this community. A little about myself. I have a keen interest in maps and map making in general. I am almost entirely new to making maps via photoshop or gimp! I've relied on world building programs built into video games in the past. Warcraft 2, Starcraft, Civilization 3, 4, and Colonization. I also have the ability to draw slightly better than the average Joe. I've drawn maps by hand which look pretty cool.

My main interest driving me to join this community is to become skilled at GIMP so that I can make a great looking historical map of Europe for a board game I've designed. Well... any questions? Greetings?
