Fantasy Map-Making & World Creation

50


50 per hour - Virtual OK

I can assist you in any of the following aspects of world creation - specifically for fantasy RPGs or fiction writing:
- Constructive, positive feedback on your current setting and ideas, providing insight and "devil's advocate" on any aspect you may still be developing.
- Inserting new concepts or aspects to the world you wish to create such as political relationships, economics, social and racial conflict, historical lore, or ideology.
- Drawing up a geographical or political map with color or aging complete with names and calligraphy, if desired.

Training & Qualifications


I have written fantasy campaigns for ten years, and write professionally as a contracted contributor for FASA Games, Inc.
I have created at least four high-quality maps as an amateur cartographer, one of which was a 22"x28" posterboard.

Availability & Preferences


I am most free during the late evenings, weekend afternoons, and holidays. Large map-making projects best take place during the holidays and over the summer.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Tom Horton

I am a bilingual second-degree black belt, licensed HAM Radio operator, actor, and writer. I dig games, helping create them, and sharing the awesome experiences that they can generate. I love to cre...ate - a map, a song, a letter, an idea - it matters not to me. Creativity and Learning are two of my favorite things in this world. I particularly love talking about and developing RPG game worlds and ideas. Everyone in this world has something worth sharing and something they are capable of creating; there is nothing more fulfilling to me than helping others find both of those things while accomplishing them myself! What I have high in supply: World-Building Advice, assistance with creative and/or professional writing of any type, and policy analysis from an educational, social, and administrative standpoint. I am willing to write for your RPGs, provide new ideas, or participate in cooperative storytelling. If not for RPGs, I can aide you in considerations for policy initiatives, lesson plans, or essays and debates. Ask me any question, and I will do my best to answer. What I have high in demand: Artwork of all forms for all of the Dungeons and Dragons campaigns I write for, including landscapes, character concepts, artifacts, and posters. Other art pieces such as fictitious movie posters, portraits of loved ones, photo editing, and other original pieces are also frequently sought after.show more
