The makers of Campaign Cartographer and other map-making programs I use invited me to write a guest post on their site, ProFantasy.com. It went live Monday and can be read at this link.
The article discusses subjects covered in Creating Places (The Art of World Building, #2), including how a continent’s hemisphere, prevailing winds, and mountain ranges causes rain shadows, which affect where vegetation and deserts lie.
There’s also a little quiz at the end to see how well you retained the lesson! Check it out and leave a comment on their site if you’d like to see more.
These guys have been very cool to me. How cool? They donated the three programs to the left for the giveaway I’m running for the next three weeks. Stop by their site and see what they have to offer!
