    Help Looking for parchment tutorial

    Hi guys, i am new around here and saw some great makes on this site.

    I am making a MUD game and was going to make a graphical map for it but i want an old parchment background for the map to sit on. The style im looking for is the same as the RuneScape background (www.runescape.com). or something similar. Another style i am interested in is the parchment on the Cartographers' Guild banner.

    Anyone know of any tutorials or can provide a tutorial on how to create a similar effect? (the rolls don't matter but would be awesome, its more the middle bit im interested in)

    thanks in advanced and keep up the AWESOME map making I've seen around the site

    You should check out the Tutorial Forum (quite a few there), and maybe the Mapping Elements Forum as well.

    Please take my critiques as someone who Wishes he had the Talent

    Welcome!

    I can't do any better than pointing out RobA's excellent Gimp tutorial here:

    This thread has some links to offsite tutorials for Photoshop that may also be helpful, but I haven't gone through them:
