Dear mappers, the first quarter of the year has flown past and although it is unlikely we’ll see each other at conventions this year, the signs are there that the pandemic will loosen its grip on the world in the coming months. We are certainly looking forward to be travelling again, and to be sharing the maps we create virtually with our gaming groups in person. But until then we can still be content to share them virtually, as so many of our users do in the Profantasy community forum and the Facebook group. You’ll find a sample selection of these below, along with the latest Annual issue, example maps by Christina Trani, a superbly useful article by Remy and the latest live videos.
