If you are serious about creating maps for your campaign, I strongly recommend picking up the entire line of ProFantasy products (at least: Campaign Cartographer, Dungeon Designer, City Designer, and Fractal Terrains) and taking the time to learn them. Also, the forums at ProFantasy and Cartographer’s Guild are filled with experienced mappers and tons of tips.

Here are a few tutorials that I have written. I hope to add to this section regularly.


ProFantasy Software

Campaign Cartographer

Fractal Terrains

Hereafter a few FT3 tutorials I did years ago. You may still find them useful, but they are also problematic as well. Hopefully, I’ll have time soon to go back and revise them.
