Well, I've wanted to design a campaign world for a long time and I'm finally getting around to doing it. I'm going with a ground up approach and designing my world first, then placing civilizations where it makes sense for them to be, then destroying them and rebuilding and such as I figure out where the danger zones are and where wars would be fought etc.

So right now I'm on the first step of creating my world map. I've been reading posts here all night and they've been a tremendous help thus far. I have my world sketched out roughly and after reading many introductory threads, I think I'll be grabbing myself a copy of CC3. Hopefully in not too long I'll be posting my world map in a WIP thread, or at least the geography of one of my 4 continents.

Thanks so much for all the help so far.
