I don’t know about other fantasy writers, but I need a map of my world to keep my story straight. There’s only one problem with that. I have no drawing talent at all. My maps look like they were done by a preschooler. Maybe worse than that.

Today I hope to have taken the first step to fixing that problem. I bought a program called Campaign Cartographer 3+, which was primarily created for D&D players, I believe. It’s powerful and complex, but having done work in Photoshop and CorelDraw helps a lot on the learning curve.

I’ll post my first map of the Vale, which is where The Path of the Dragonfly is set. I hope it will produce “oooh” rather than “hahahaha” or “wtf?”
