Final Strike by Raymond Swanland

"Final Strike" by Raymond Swanland

The Cartographers’ Guild is "a forum created by and for map makers and aficionados, a place where every aspect of cartography can be admired, examined, learned, and discussed. Our membership consists of professional designers and artists, hobbyists, and amateurs—all are welcome to join and participate in the quest for cartographic skill and knowledge."  How exactly does one go about making a map of a make-believe place?  Go to Worldbuilding School or check out these 22 Great Map Resources and Tutorials.

Worldbuilding By Map: "I know what you’re thinking – those posters of Middle Earth are gorgeous. Of course a map should be beautiful. But for worldbuilding purposes a pretty map is a Very Bad Thing. Beautiful things are precious, and we tend to want to leave precious things pristine and untouched. When we’re building worlds we need to break things, and often. So, out with any thoughts that we’re making a pretty map."
