Thread: Hi all!

    Post Hi all!

    Just found this place and found it to have tons of great info. Thought I should register and join the community. I have been Game Mastering DnD and WoD for about 7 yrs now, and as far, all my maps are boxes and stick figures. I would love to learn how to make beautiful maps like I have seen here and will see how far I can go.

    Post How do you create maps?

    So how do you create maps, hand-drawn, I'm guessing. Have you thought of using software - there are some great free applications like GIMP that could be the right tool to try out. There's a large community support here for it. Lots of options. Or you could stick with hand-drawing.

    Come up with something, post a crude map and we'll take a look, give you some directions and watch you improve. We're sort of an academy for fantasy mapping here, but you have to start somewhere.

    Post Hand Drawn or Computer?

    I have done some hand drawn and I have one that I made using AutoRealm. A friend of mine has CC2 and I have dabbled with it a bit. I will work this weekend in getting something put together and post it for all to see.

    Welcome to the Guild, subsurferus. This is the right place to learn about making maps (and to see some wonderful maps as well). This place is a treasure trove of info!
    Cheers,
