Good Day Everyone! I am in the process of relaunching my old, long-running swords and sorcery roleplay. It is my first love when it comes to my three sites. I would love some input, suggestions, links, ideas and overall discussion on the topic of creating and using maps for sites. Caveat...I am a graphics Village Idiot. Photoshop and I have a very adversarial relationship. Do you create or use a map of your world or continent, etc.? What are some resources out there for map and world building? What makes you run screaming from the very idea of creating a map of your world. Do you have any tips or tricks for map creation? I am using Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator and following a couple of Photoshop tutorials: Creating a Fantasy Map.... and some of the ones found here at The WorldBuilding School. Thing is, the tutorials are almost too high level...and too fast...for me.
This topic has been touched on in the main forums. I'd like to address it here with a game management approach, not what we want to read when joining another site. Just our opinions as the creators of worlds. How much lore is too much for a site? Is it site dependent? In other words, does the amount of lore relate to how intuitive or user-friendly a world or realm is? Should we expect new members (and old, in some cases) actually read everything? Put in the work to learn the world and build a great character? Relates to #3: Are those of us with lore-heavy sites expecting too much of new members by having a lore-heavy site?
