Wyvern CitadelIt is high-time we announce the Master Mapper award for 2020, though with all the wonderful commnunity activity going on, it’s not been an easy choice this year. One mapper stood out for us though, not only because of the sheer amoung of wonderful maps they created, but also due to their helpfulness to other mappers, as well as the inventiveness their map-making showed. It’s our forum member Alastair McBeath (Wyvern), who we name Master Mapper of 2020. Congratulations and thanks!

Alastair has been with us on the community forum since 2013, and the number of maps he has shared since then is innumerable. With the Master Mapper title we want to specifically thank him for:

  • Creating many beautiful and innovative maps and sharing them with the community.
  • Lively discussions, active help and always being welcoming in the Profantasy community.
  • Coming up with new ways to use Campaign Cartographer’s tools and assets, and sharing these with his fellow map-makers.
  • Contributing to the toolset of Campaign Cartographer via the Cartographer’s Annual.

So, thank you, Alastair, we are looking forward to all the future maps you will come up with!
