Hey there, friends and watchers. I've decided to create a PF tutorial guiding you through the creation of a simple map to give you some basic insights into the do's and don't's as I've learned them. Enjoy! :)

Thanks for making this. I am a devout learner of theory - practice not so much. :stare: These sorts of things keep my life interesting by giving me things to ponder.


Cheers!

This is awesome. Looks like I found some inspiration. Just curious, but have you tried turning a cloud picture into a flat continent? I found it works great with both earthly planets and flat land continents for rpg creation.

I know that others have used this method successfully, but I haven't tried that yet. Most my work is for commissions where the clients have pretty solid ideas as to how their world ought to look like, so I can't use those somewhat random shapes.

That was undeniably the inspiration, yeah. Always had a soft spot for that part of Faerûn. :)
