Reminders for prospective new members: We moderate membership to this community to help improve the overall experience for all members.

Requirements for obtaining membership:

Your G+ profile must demonstrate an interest in tabletop gaming (see below for an exception). "100% video-gaming" does not (generally) count. You can "demonstrate interest" by filling out your profile information and posting/sharing about tabletop gaming-related topics.

On rare occasions someone applies who is (according to their profile) a professional cartographer and/or librarian, and they are also granted membership (because, well, this is a "library" of "maps").

Profiles which have no gaming-related posts, no "about" information, only post the same thing over and over again, or otherwise appear to be spam accounts are mercilessly rejected membership (and may, depending on their content and the moderator's current mood, be reported to Google via the G+ abuse reporting features). Such applicants who repeatedly apply after an initial rejection may be banned, such that G+ won't even let them attempt to apply again.

User profile pictures: Any applications coming from accounts which have have not set a profile picture will be rejected out of hand, without further inspection. Applicants need not use a picture of themselves nor anything personal in nature, they are simply required to change the profile picture from the default G+ picture (the default blue silhouette) to anything else. Justification: if a user cannot be bothered to make themselves appear less like a bot then the admins will assume they are bots and save themselves the moderation effort.

If you have concerns about this policy, or feel that your application has been wrongly rejected, please contact the community owner (+Gremlin Legions) and/or the moderators (currently +Stephan Beal and +Mighto Kondriac).

Hey,
I'm looking to get some maps for an upcoming book. The scenario calls for a desert ruin. Ideally full color, but black and white will do if the map is the layout is the best.

Free or paid stock maps are both acceptable. It doesn't have to specifically be a desert map, but if it's adaptable to one that would be fine.

My recent illustration ! Take a look, it comes with an awesome one-shot adventure.
This is my most recent illustration. It features a farm house and the lands around it. Visiting this link will bring you to a oneshot adventure idea for such location. The hook is the same but the background info can change depending on which you choose to use.

Howdy Map Makers and World Builders.

I came across this video in my feed, and thought it raised some good ideas you might want to think of when planning YOUR maps/cultures/civs.

In short. Geography dovetails with Opportunity Cost. If you can't get around quickly "local issues" become more insulated.
