Hi all,
I've just stumbled upon this site and have been amazed by the work here! My own meagre effort resides here: Twilight
I have produced maps for mostly games companies- Dark Skull Studios, Drama Shark Games, Shaun Duke, Threshold RPG, Quiklink interactive/rpg realms, and others.
I enjoy feedback and constructive criticism/advice.

Welcome to the forum, Steff. How did you get into the business of making maps for games? I'm not looking for any other work but do like gaming so am curious about that.

Welcome to CartoTalk! Interesting maps for the "Far Heavens" game. What tools do you use to produce your maps?

Welcome Steff,
Very nice work. Like Analisa, I too love the old-world and hobbitt-type look.
By the way, what does: 'Is quisnam est fortis est solvo' mean on your map of Britain?. I took latin in high school (and hung out in Pompei in a previous incarnation) so my guess would be:. 'Whoever is virtuous is saved' Am I close?

Hi all,
Thanks for all your kind words! First off, I just put ads on gaming forums. Secondly, I use Adobe Illustrator CS3 and Adobe Photoshop CS2. Thirdly, you're welcome. and Fourthly, I can't remember exactly as it was a couple of months ago but it was part of the speech made by Caractacus to the Roman Senate and you're very close IIRC it was "Only the vistuous deserve to be saved." (I think!)
