Hey there,

Dropping by quickly to get my dose of DJ goodness.

While I'm there, what's your occupation?

I teach English in China (south of).

Next!

Primary focus is in health care the last few years.

I'll go one step further. My hobbies, in addition to D&D once a fortnight, are science (physics/astronomy/biology), Gym/running, and top of the list going out with friends :)

I'm a housewife, former artist/craft person..okay, I still do some artwork but not much as I'm too weak (sick) to do much but sit at a computer and DM an AD&D game via email. I also make semi-precious stone beaded necklaces, or I did. My one fun thing to do these days beside come here is to search through gravel from Montana looking for sapphires, garnets, agates and quartz. I've found quite a lot of sapphires and had some of them cut. The biggest I've found is 11 carats. Unfortuneately there were a few flaws in it so ended up with several half carats gemstones.

Good topic, always nice to see what we all do in the real world.
I am a Quality Engineer (degree at Purdue)working for a circuit board manufacture. My responsibilities are with all of our automotive customers. I am also a certified TS 16949 internal auditor so I keep busy at work in paper work and process and quality control..... Art is my stress relief from work and you all really help in lowering that stress.

Thanks Blu

I work in the office of a construction company, and my duties cover a very wide range of skills ranging from AutoCAD, to deliveries, to job material breakdowns, to repairs on buildings, to site visits to check out the site of the next buildings and laser shoot it, and to being the forklift driver. Just call me Jack.

Semper Fi Desert Elf, 88-94 here. We crop up in the strangest places ... though I'm not surprised D&D is pretty popular when you are strapped for cash near the end of the pay cycle :P Thankfully I was both a Sgt and pretty good at managing my money when I was stationed in Hawaii, read that as I could spread my clubbing evenly over the 2 paydays a month :P

I served with 1-38th Inf in Korea--"Rock of the Marne" (Part of 2ID at the time)

I played DnD in the 80's, and now I'm back, using Fantasy Grounds.

I found a reference to Dundjinni in a post in the FG forums, and I've been gobbling up all the free art that Dundjinni geniuses have posted.

And welcome, Arcana!

I'm working on finishing up my degree in Simulation and Modeling, so still living the student life for now. Maybe sometime next year I'll be doing something similar to Arcana, perhaps even for the navy. VR is pretty neat stuff, and there's also human factors type jobs out there too, so I don't know what I'll be doing yet :)

I supervise an engine assembly line for a major automotive company. Hopefully early next year I will help set up the next generation engine line for the assembly side.

Have two kids (13 yr old daughter/12 yr old son), two dogs, and two cats. If my wife has her way - soon to have two horses...

Right now we are in Colorado but the horses we bought are up in South Dakota at Jen's family farm. They will stay there until they are 2 yrs old. Hopefully by that time we will have our own facilities down here so Jen can train them.

I would say that the government certainly encourages military service. And the general public looks at it as an honorable and necessary occupation, even if the general politics of war are not agreed upon.
9/11 also really impacted the "popularity" of serving.

ahh Kep you're setting yourself up there. The branches of the American military are quite "competitve" - they think of themselves as very distinct entites. I think it's an American thing.

You are correct!

Esprit de corps is strong in the US military services, and that competitiveness extends also to the branches within each of the services (infantry, artillery, etc., in the Army, for example) and to individual units ("Rock of the Marne").

That's why I identified myself not only as a soldier (an Army descriptor--Marines would not appreciate being called soldiers )--but also as an infantryman.

HOOAH!

In the States, for right now, service is voluntary. There is also a thing called the GI Bill that vet's get so that the government helps pay for their college.

Not an entirely bad proposition, really and you get an honorable way to serve your country. Last I checked, there were a few countries out there that have forced military service like Spain and Israel. (could be wrong on those.)

Political issues aside, you would be hard-pressed to find a better bunch of honorable, hard working militarymen and women anywhere in the world.

I know where I come from going in the army isn't exactly popular.


I would say that the government certainly encourages military service. And the general public looks at it as an honorable and necessary occupation, even if the general politics of war are not agreed upon.
9/11 also really impacted the "popularity" of serving.

ahh Kep you're setting yourself up there. The branches of the American military are quite "competitve" - they think of themselves as very distinct entites. I think it's an American thing.


Very well put. Marines are trained a bit different then the Army, Navy and Air force. The USMC is rich in history and you learn about the history in boot camp. It builds on the patriotism of the members.

The Marine Corps is also much smaller then the other 3 branches. We are also utilised much differently at the start of campaigns. There is a reason they call us "The few, the proud".

Call it brainwashing if you want :)

I still celebrate the birthday of the USMC, just passed 10 Nov. But then agian I'm always looking for reasons to celebrate :)

That said my nephew was concidering on joining and I explained to him as patriotic as I am I would not join right now. I was active during the 1st gulf war and supported it. I do not support the butchering of the US Constitution that is occuring during this gulf war. It hard to claim the moral high ground and be proud when the US outsources torture, rendering prisoners, to countries like Egypt and thinks that makes it ok.

Enough of my political beliefs.

I work for an armored car company. Naturally having said that I don't neccessarily feel very comfortable saying anything more then that.

I'm 26 and am married to a teacher, no children as of yet.

As far as our U.S. Military goes, I have nothing but the utmost respect for them, regardless of thier branch of service. It's a little-known fact at the small store that I work at part-time, but if someone under 21 shows me thier military ID, they're getting the beer that I would normally refuse to a non-military minor. That's the least I could do for someone who, especially now, risks it all for my country.

I find it utterly ridiculous that you can die for your country on the battlefield
but you can't have a freakin' beer. Military IDs should always override that
silly law.

I can say that the drinking age of 21 never seemed to apply on base. I could always go to an enlisted club and get in with my military ID and they'd always serve you. Now should that be extended out into town? Hmmm Not sure. Atleast if you drank on base you probably where not driving anywhere after.

If they could control drinking then I'd support a drinking age of 21 while letting you go clubbing at 18. Show the kids that you can have fun going out without drinking. Something I learnt while in Hawaii I often volunteered for the designated driver. I'm a much better dancer sobber :)

I am in auto insurance, work for the lizard.

*GETS UP ON SOAPBOX*

I will say I game with a bunch of military guys, and it amazes me the small things we take for granted that they end up sacrificing for deployment, especially separation from their loved ones, for extended periods of time. I totally support and respect them for that willingness.

Having said that, I am also a major opponent of the current war, which is the result not of the military, but the civilian leadership, who in fact did not (and *DO* not) lead!!!

*GETS DOWN OFF SOAPBOX*

I am curious - does anyone know each other in real life? Seems like a very diverse collection geographically.

I just got DJ as a gift for christmas. I've been downloading stuff so I can expand on what is available. I have to admit I'm very new to the concept of making my own maps....heheheheh but I'm sure it'll be fun getting there. Besides I like a little challenge to stir up the creativity. I think I will be making some D&D and Star Wars type stuff as I have run both genras...

Hi Everyone,
I figured this would be a good place for my first post.
I'm an Optometrist in Maine. Have been in practice here since 1982. I have 2 kids ( ages 21 & 25) and my Wife and I are about to cellebrate our 30th.

I have been snagging and using the fantastic maps you all post here for quite a while and finally decided to log in officialy. Keep up the great work everyone, these maps add a lot to the games I DM (old school, 2ED AD&D). Hopefully, someday I can add my own creations for everyone else to use, but I am better at modifying what's already here than creating from scratch.

Hey guys. New to the group. I bought the program locally after seeing your work. Very nice.

I am a graphic designer for an exhibit house in Milwaukee WI. I do floorplan, construction drawings, and all graphic layout for exhibits that we build. I also co own a small card and board game company. You may not have seen our titles called Siege and Mission:I.S.S.

We are VERY small.

Actually I got it because I have started teaching my 8 year old daughter D&D but it would work very well for a game board as well. In the old days I would have just used photoshop and illustrator. I am still trying to figure out how to get an object to look clean when it is made small. Most of the ones I have worked on so far are just sort of blobby when reduced.

Okay, brand new here. I'll be picking up my copy of DJ sometime within the next week, as soon as my local game store gets it in.

Looking forward to seeing all the great stuff you all come up with.

On topic - I run my own drafting company, AutoCAD and SSDCP. We do structural steel fabrication drawings for shop use. Been at it for almost 27 years now.

Welcome aboard Bogie, Maclaird and Grogg.

Maclaird, Isn't it great teaching the youngins to play. I am currently teaching my 14 year old to play Castles and Crusades. My eight year old doesn't quite get role playing and seems to be stuck in war game mode. Either way it is fun for me. Have fun with it.

I started her with a rogue and founf that to be a bit too subtle for her. She would get hired at an inn and proudly exclaim to the tavern keep that she was a thief. I made her a warrior after that to get her used to the rp idea.

MacLaird> I'm running Tunnels & Trolls for my kids. They have a variety of
characters, some of whom are rogues. I suspect that if I had presented them
with that opportunity they might have doen something similar. We jumped
right into a simple dungeon crawl without all the foreplay.

headed in the same direction. Now you have staryed from the road and
found a derelict temple of some kind builtinto the side of a mountain. Do

Funny stuff. She would never make it as a doppleganger.


One thing I implemented in my children's game is fate points. So when they get themselves into trouble I allow them to use a fate point to get out of it as long as they provide dramatic reasoning (might be tough for even younger ones). Accompanying that is some "My Dad is a Gamer" advice about the error of their ways. They learn of consequences without being discouraged after they charge head long at the nearest basilisk. They also learn that there is no second chance after that fate point has been used, so it becomes a nice warning for them that they have gone too far.

I agree. What I'm wondering, though, is where's the old life? Lots of
previously-frequent posters seem to have vanished.

I would be one of the vanished species. . . I have to admit I've been sidetracked. Keeping three children going over summer break, an occasional wedding cake order, and an unfortunate side-treck into smocking (it's a type of embroidery) that has satisfied my artistic itch could be part of the blame.

However we still have our once a month game and I've done a lot of maps for it. I should check into posting some. . . .

I'm a Paramedic based just outside Edinburgh though my patch covers all of
Edinburgh, Lothians and sometimes the Borders (things have to be bad to
get sent down here).

Like many I have done my time in the military, Royal Artillery where
ultimately ended up in 148 Codo. Battery.

I live down in the Anglo-Scottish Border, an area steeped in some seriously
wild history.

Still play with the same face to face group I started out with over 25 years
ago.

My turn it seems then.

I currently work as the head of the mail order department for a chain of RPG and Wargaming stores. Previously I've worked as an officer in the merchant navy. (I hail from Denmark).

Hobbies include RPG and wargaming (of course), WoW (i'm addicted and I know it ) and going to the gym. Of course, whenever the friends come calling, all the other stuff gets pushed aside (especially since what they usually want to do is to play D&D).

I've been a civilian for 25 years, but I started playing D&D at Fort Campbell, KY in 1980. (My wife bought me the old blue box, basic set. Good Lord, what she started!) Back then even the character sheets were hand written, and all my D&D stuff could fir into 1 briefcase.

AND this is my 50th post, so I think I get promoted to HERO!

LOL!!! I remember those days!

Now every one of my characters has his or her own 3-ring view binder. Included are computer-generated character sheets, assorted support sheets (spells, powers, background stories, etc.), multiple color pics, pics of their home, work, and friends, character sheets of friends, and game notes. Each character has her own dice (gotta keep the karma separate) and dice bag, though I have only one dice box to roll them in.

I'm not sure I could play if I didn't have all my stuff!

Well, backstory, portrait, comp generated sheets are norm for me. I do have a set of dice for each character, and my jasper set for DMing. Not that it really helps, they all seem subject to my anomolous existence on the probability curve.

Good to see you around EE. It's been a while. Your work and tmaaas dabbling first convinced me to try DJ.

I've made a few posts, but I haven't actually introduced myself. So here's the opportunity, right?

I'm a mechanical engineer at one of the USA's national laboratories sponsored by the Department of Energy, specifically Argonne National Laboratory. Most of my job is engineering analysis using various simulation software. Fun stuff! No, really. It's fun.

I've been playing RPGs for about 22 years now. I am currently running a GURPS campaign in a fantasy setting but using horror elements.

I'm mostly a glorified cpu analyst. I also do a few other things as well. At the moment I'm in pre-production of a movie. I'm also VERY active .... here's a link to my personal website: www.gstg.info

Love this site, even though I'm new to it. I was a big DnD player 20 years ago and just starting to get back into it, so it's being a blast.

...Yeah, sorry, keep forgetting you all have different names! We have junior school (7 years) then high school (5 years) and the last year of high school is called "matric".

A post-matric is usually an extra year of schooling (generally taken either because you flopped matric, or because you want to play rugby - neither in my case). My year is kinda different though: no actual learning school, but leadership courses and stock exchange and financial management and horse-riding and abseiling and sky-diving and...

Basically a year of fun and personal development!

Might as well introduce myself.

I am a Consultant Ecologist. Which basically means I stop the nasty developers from destroying wildife, and make sure it is protected and their habitats are enhanced (I apologise if any of you are nasty developers). It is a very fulfilling occupation which is very rewarding. It is also nice to get paid for something you also enjoy.

I have recently started playing RPGs again and now running my own campaigns.

GURPS the way I play it? Well, I wanted to do something a little different than the typical fantasy campaign. Several years ago, I was a player in a Call of Cthulhu game, and I loved it. So, what I'm doing now is starting a fantasy game as normal, but I'm slowly adding bits of horror to the mix. I think at some point it will be more horror than fantasy.

Resources that have helped me: the works of H. P. Lovecraft (best horror author ever IMO), GURPS Spirits, GURPS Horror, as well as the more up to date rules in the 4e GURPS Campaigns book.

Not many posts here but years of lurking.   

Secondary school teacher here up in the Great White North just outside of Toronto. I teach math and computers.

When I am not teaching, marking, planning lessons, running the Robotics team, or raising the family I am lurking here in awe of the talent and patiently learning from the map-masters and waiting for the Java Vista patch so I can actually get the mapping skills upgraded.

Well met.

I guess it's time for me to hit the Social Lounge.

I'm a web developer for a company working in the college textbook industry. Much more coding than graphic design, but the company did recently foot the bill for my new copy of Photoshop so I'm not complaining.   

I'm the guy with the crazy projector setup for gaming.

At last count, I started gaming 25 years ago. And my wife has me beaten on that record by a year or two. I'm a lucky guy.

Might as well sign in here too...

I currently work at the library here at Samford University (secretary/building coordinator), with a lot of my work going towards our annual Institute for Genealogy and Historical Research (IGHR). I've also been a print media manager/graphic artist, video game merchandiser (it was the best way I could describe it for my appearance on Jeopardy! back in 2006), comic book colorist, and radio DJ.

I have one child, a 5-year-old son who has recently discovered the joys of Star Wars geekdom...

I have roughly 20 years of gaming under my belt (mainly Palladium-system RPGs), not as many as ruined unfortunately but I think I still have a few more left in me.

I remember seeing your setup pics elsewhere and being so jealous. And I guess your wife would have to be a gamer to let you set it up permanentyly like that.

Great stuff.

5 is a bit too young to D&D but get ready. My son started at age 7. It is a fun age with so much before them.

So how did you do on Jeopardy? Doesn't that mean you lost to Jennings?

My son started D&D at about 6 or 7 and now at 26 he still drives up from Boston to play in my games whenever he can.

I'm planning on working a few adventure modules in while I'm reading to him... you know, start the indoctrination early...

As for the Jeopardy! part... fortunately, Jennings was gone by the time I made it there. I won my first day (due in large part to a "Disney Film Voices" category) but crashed and burned like the Hindenburg the second. It was a blast though!

I started him young by telling him about a different mythology story each night. Then later I read him the whole Belgariad series (all 5 books). He was pretty sure for a while that there was a prophecy about him out there and he was destined for something special. Now he's hooked. Great fun.

Heh - I remember those books. I always enjoyed Polgara. I'll have to re-read them in light of reading them to the girls. We've done the Narnia series and Twilight of Magic. . . .

Micah, Polgara was my favorite also because she was so in charge and so sure of herself.

No, Dunrik, because he was the solid protector of all things good, in love with Polgara, and ready to swim through shark-infested waters to do anything for her. A man's man.

No wait, it was Silk. Was he cool or what? He was everything to everyone.

Ahh, I could go on. The names in the book have become standards in all my games as archetypical characters. My son now plays a rogue named Silk in our campaign. He just finished the series for the third time, once with me and twice on his own.

You hear that, Kepli? You need to get rid of those lousy Euros and buy some of our Collectible American Silver Dollars.

They have some great selling points--first of all, they're shiny, and secondly, they proudly display leaders and logos which can be strange and foreign to you.

You can buy five of these Shiny American Silver Dollars for just $19.95--now that's one great deal! Did I mention that they're shiny?

Spam, the only thing with a shelf life longer than a Twinkie! After the nuclear holocaust, or the end of life asteroid hit, the only thing left will be cockroaches eating Twinkies and Spam.

Hell no!
I'm from a much colder country (guess!)
You need lots of training and university knowledge.
I don't just spend my day saying "I'm sorry sir we can't do that!" . Sometimes I slide in a couple of words about 'vested shares' and 'de-mutualization' in between.

Hello All,

This is my very first time to post anywhere on any site.

I just bought a retail copy of DJ on eBay and have been playing for hours now. What fun! Prior to this, I was a cardstock modeling enthusiast. Then one day I decided it was entirely too tedious. All the cutting and Gluing. A whole closest full of castle corridors and caves. (Wife wants her closet back)

Role-playing used to be cheep entertainment. 2 years ago I became completely addicted to Wizards Miniatures.
I don't know when Wotc became so savvy, but they are marketing evil geniuses and they are taking all my money!

I want to use DJ to render some of the old D&D maps like B2 Borderlands (I think someone mentioned that old module earlier in this thread).

I have played D&D since 9 (1970) and have played with my 9 year old for a year now. He tries to DM, but, well, He will throw everything at you, and then realize he sent too much and make the bad guys let you go. Every treasure is a kings ransom and ever item is magic.

I have played Story Teller (Mage), and currently play in a fantasy-turning-horror GRUPS game.

I love my boring little job: a credit rep for a Major Texas Newspaper. Basically, Im a really nice collector.

I have a wife who really does not understand my need to play make believe, and another son age 2.

Have you ever heard the mating call of the wild spam?

Not a pretty sound!

Wow! I ramble.

I have a husband that thinks like your wife. The closest he gets to roleplaying is playing Chess. :D Lucily my son loves it. I taught him well! He's now 37 and still loving it.

I'm a parts manager at our local Kia dealership. On weekends I judge Horrorclix tournements at Kapow comics in Sherwood, Arkansas. I got Dundjinni to make some new maps for our Horroclix and Heroclix players. After having the program for only 1 day now, I have already spent several hours searching the net for new objects to use.
I will be here a lot asking for advice. Nice to meet you all.

I'm a graphic designer at a small design studio in the city where I live. I've been a designer for about 10 years, now. I've had Dundjinni for a number of years, but never really taken any time to use it because I always had problems getting it to work on my PC.

Then I got a Mac.

I've been scrounging the net for objects the last week or so, and found RPGMapShare - what a fantastic resource!

I'm going to GenCon in August, and I'm putting together maps for a one-shot adventure I'm putting together for the buddies I'm heading down there with.

Anyone else here going to GenCon?

Rob.

Hi,

   Well, I finally decided to no more be a Forum-Lurker, and this post seems to be a very good one to start my first message!


I'm French (Apologies for my personnal version of English language! ), IT Architect, previously student in Virtual reality, computer graphics and Fan of RolePlayGames...


I heard about Dundjinni only six Month ago, and that's changed my life : I was before drawing Maps with Autorealms (which is honest, free, but does not give really beautiful maps), or with the "draw" menu from Excel (wich is...yeah, I know..no need to throw stones at me : my friends and players already did it when I showed them these maps!! )


So I bought Dundjinni, some artpacks (Ok, almost all artpacks!), and started to play with it. I have to admit the learning curve with Dundjinni is REALLY fast : most of my first maps were "caves maps" and it's incredibly fast to do an "honest" map with the marquee tools... Of course, itemizations, manual shadows, overlays, etc, needs some lurking time on the forum, but it's easy to find once I know what to search for .


Beside, Dundjinni is light enough to run on my EEE-PC, even if I had to install WinXP instead Linux due to this @#$@#$ ICE-JNI-Registration Library. Next step is to install a touchscreen on it, in order to drop away the mouse, and to draw directly on the screen with a pen... (My Girlfriend said I'm a Geek...I dunno why?)

The worst thing about dundjinni? The marquee tools have no "undo" function : I no more count the times I slammed furiously my mouse after clicking somewhere without the Control or Shift key pressed.... *Sigh*


The best thing about dundjinni? Everything else, including the forum's activity! There is everyday tips, free art, maps on it... It's so Huge that the hard part is sometime to find the right word ( my english vocabulary is not so great!) to describe what I would do, or the item I want to complete my map!!


Anyway, I already recommended Dundjinni to every roleplayer I know, and as soon as I showed them some maps done with it, they drooled : I guess it's a good sign!!


Now I'm just waiting for the next version of Dundjinni, lurking on the forums, and I continue (when I have some time) to draw maps for a Campaign I will probably never do play (I will probably post it freely on the net, I guess) But as long as I enjoy drawing maps, it doesn't really matter


Cheers, And keep the good work on every next version of Dundjinni!!
    Fabien.

P.S: Hmmm I made finally a long post with a lot of smileys... I will be more reasonnable next time

Hi all! I'm a marketing person at an environmental engineering firm. I have a degree in art, which only marginally relates to what I do for a living, so I get my kicks in other places - like making maps for my husband's D&D campaigns (he's more of a thinky type - I like the creative stuff).

I've been the Map Wench for the past year (ever since I volunteered to scan & print the battle maps from the modules... what was I thinking??). But I really kindof get off on making our games cool. Graphic maps are so much cooler than magic marker on a battlemap, huh? Since we started 4th edition my first project was scanning all the maps for the modules and blowing them up and editing out the monster markers so we could have cool battlemaps. My second project was printing power cards for everyone from MSE (for the folks who don't have the character generator, anyway). So Dundjinni & custom maps is just the next project in the snowball.

I just dig it when our group oohs and ahhs at the battle maps. Dundjinni's gonna knock their socks off!

LOL - There are some folks that can do amazing things with food out there! I think my edible creations would pale in comparison. My biggest challenge this year was a 3D Pokemon cake that my daughter requested. Yikes - more engineering goes into that than I learned from playing with Legos - so the cake artistry might stay simple for a while.

It's good to see you dDa! I've been thinking about the crew here too. Wishing I had more time for maps! I did do a few for my game - should post those here anyways. Someday I'll get back to making a map just for the sake of doing it - or because I saw a cool item in the objects thread that begged to have surroundings.

Micha, You know you've got a place in my heart as my favorite map-maker with your color and balance. Some people have come very close but they still can't match your Micah-originals.

Come back soon. There's a whole new generation of map-makers looking to be inspired.

Flattery will get you everywhere. . .

I posted a rather "substandard" (read not a whole lot of time to devote to the project) train map.

I'll try to get back to the hobby as I can. I miss cobbling stuff together.

Just realized I haven't posted anything in this thread ;-)

Self employed independent IT-consultant/Systems architect /
codemonkey, focus on the Mac platform.

Been playing RPGs since late 70s, still have the AD&D MM-1 first print
somewhere at home, and it still smells like puke from the glue they used.

Started mapmaking just a year ago when I started with 4E. Gaming and
nerdiness runs in the family. I have a son who is 17 who I've raised to
play RPGs since he was 5 1/2, and a dad at 70 who still run to the local
game store buying RPG-book, for his own pleasure, so we can play 3
generation games, that is funny.

My wife just shake her head, and picks up a book whenever dinner
conversations moves to RPGs, and my daughter, who is almost 16, just
yells "You are all nerds!" and slams the door to her room ;-)

Wow, I am amazed by all the things and work types everyone have tried.
I can only add a few myself:
Database admin/webdeveloper/server admin mac/pc
former un soldier in croatia 1994
did rpg late 80's and early 90's (traditional style) then later I went to
mmorpg
MA practitioner, teach old style bujinkan and systema
I love to see other peoples art and let that inspire me to do more, though
I'm not that good at graphics (yet) and now it seems I'm babling which I
usually do when I'm happy and eager to move on.

Just to let everyone know: You're work in here is truly amazing!
Best to all

Welcome on-board Mortifan, glad you got membership sorted.

Looking forward to your graphic input - any questions or tips needed, just direct them at Cisti Kep Bogie and the like - and I'll spy on them myself and pick up a few pointers I'm too shy to ask!

About time I posted in here

I've been in IT (in all its various names) as programmer/sysadmin/tech specialist since leaving school in the mid-70's and I've been playing RPGs, mostly D&D for slightly longer. I still have the red box and blue box starter editions (sans dice, unfortunately) that we used to play.

My interest in mapping software is recent - I have no artistic ability whatsoever, but I'm pretty good at assembly and software use, so early attempts at making specific battlemaps for my gaming group are coming along nicely. I'm already indebted to this community for help received.

I used to say that a lot myself. Using DJ has allowed me to develop an artistic ability I never thought I had, glad you have discover it as well.

Agrees with Bogie, this is what I say to. I call m self "artistically impaired",
but with the right tools, I can function normally, and DJ are one of them.

A definite spambot. A quick google search of the name and company turned up on four forums as new user since Jan 2nd. The post is identical in all of them. I have been battling a bunch as of late.

Time for a captcha forum registration check, I got an idea.

Pick a bunch items or pictures, like a sword, an axe, a spear and a hammer,
then ask "which weapon was usable by AD&D clerics", will kill 100% of
the spambots and 95% of the Chinese/Russian/Bulgarian spam bot account
harvesters ;-)
Of course a text saying "click the throwing weapon" for a new question for
those who didnt play AD&D..

Welcome, that's the situation I'm in.

Right now I'm trying to survive a chest infection, bad one. I heal so slowly. My poor players are in a tight situation and hanging on till I can get back to them. :(

Thank you, I'm wishing too. Had a 2 hour black out in the middle of the night. Med equipment not working, bad, bad, bad. Wind shook house for 3 more hours that kept waking me up. Yawn! Took last antibiotic too. I haven't talked (much) for a week. Mostly hand gestures, grunts, squee's and writing. Kinda a relief for the family in one respect.

Leeyn is a spambot (notice that this is just a repost of something Dragonlady
posted on page 1). I have deleted most of its other posts, but can't seem to
find a way to delete the user.

Hi Everyone,
I figured this would be a good place for my first post.
I'm an Optometrist in Maine. Have been in practice here since 1982. I have 2 kids ( ages 21 & 25) and my Wife and I are about to celebrate our 30th.

I have been snagging and using the fantastic maps you all post here for quite a while and finally decided to log in officially. Keep up the great work everyone, these maps add a lot to the games I DM (old school, 2ED AD&D). Hopefully, someday I can add my own creations for everyone else to use, but I am better at modifying what's already here than creating from scratch.


I had to go back 13 pages to find my first post. I also found a post a couple pages later that said "wow, this is my 50th post!"
Not much has changed since that first post, same office seeing the same patients, only I am a lot grayer. My son is married and my daughter is several years out of college. Oh, and I went from this first post in '07 to forum moderator and now administrator. Only promotions I've had in the 30 years since I got out of the army!

I'm a housewife, former artist/craft person..okay, I still do some artwork but not much as I'm too weak (sick) to do much but sit at a computer and DM an AD&D game via email. I also make semi-precious stone beaded necklaces, or I did. My one fun thing to do these days beside come here is to search through gravel from Montana looking for sapphires, garnets, agates and quartz. I've found quite a lot of sapphires and had some of them cut. The biggest I've found is 11 carats. Unfortunately there were a few flaws in it so ended up with several half carats gemstones.

Edited by Dragonlady on 11/18/2006 at 8:29pm


Not much changed except I'm gaming on Rpol dot net not email, pretty much stopped jewelry work and searching for sapphires, though I still have 1 and a half bags of gravel to search through. My wheelchair can't get into the back half of the house where most of my stuff is. My only child just turned 41 this month which makes me feel real real old! He lives here at home and takes care of me. My husband is older than I am and hard of hearing so he can't do it. Still do lots of stuff on the computer and love coming here to get new png's to use for mapping.

Don't know how I ever missed this thread.

So, better late than never.

When I started posting here a few years ago, I was an IT consultant specializing in Asset Management. I'd travel all over the US working on projects for companies large and small, even worked on a project for the Executive Office of the President (of the US) at the time Bush was on his way out and Obama on his way in.

But, the work was inconsistent, got laid off one too many times and said screw it. The money was good, but not if you weren't sure you were going to have a job next month.

I had moved out to Western Washington state, on Whidbey Island when I was consulting. Got 2 acres with a view of Puget Sound and the Olympic mountain range. Looking for work in this area was daunting. No one would ever reply to a resume submission. It eventually got to the point where I had to look for lesser paying work.

So now I build and repair wheelchairs, of all kinds. It's more rewarding work than consulting, which was more like being a salesman. The only drawback to my current career is that I spend a LOT less time on the computer ;)

Earlier in life I was in the Army for a short time, 81-84, spent some time in Germany back when there was still an East and West Germany. I was with the 2nd Sqaudron 11th Armored Cavalry in Bad Kissingen, defending the southern Fulda Gap. This would explain, to some anyway, why I do so many military vehicle renders. ;)

an East and West Germany. I was with the 2nd Sqaudron 11th
Armored Cavalry in Bad Kissingen, defending the southern
Fulda Gap. This would explain, to some anyway, why I do so
many military vehicle renders. ;)
That it does.

So now I build and repair wheelchairs, of all kinds. It's more rewarding
work than consulting, which was more like being a salesman.

One of my best friends calls himself "mental prostitute" and I agree to that
term.

Fulda Gap - Soviet highway to the west. Not the place you would be if
WWIII started as it was the first strike zone for Soviet TacNukes.

That about sums it up.

No place would have been a good place to be.

You know, I don't think I ever wrote anything here....

Hi I'm Cisticola, Royal Engineer (Army) in my youth, then as a Ecologist (Conservation Biologist) in Civvy Street, now I split my time between making maps, normally lots and lots of maps, map objects, textures and top down figures. I am very much a traditional artist, I find it hard to 3d model so end up drawing everything i do in pencil and paper.

At the moment I am trying to branch out into more holistic art pieces, making jewelry, sacred drums, things people would use in a shamanic or spiritual rituals and meditation. I am kind of a Warrior Hippy, I think.....

Hi all - I actually am new :), and I love seeing how
active everyone still is here.

I'm Anne, a Regional Recruiting Manager where I manage no
one and get to interview people all day somewhat feeling
bad they're being hired for a cruddy job.

After that, I take my anguish and come up with horrible
plans - I mean, exciting and ejoyable plans for my
players to go through. I have a 1st-ed Exalted game that
has been mostly on/some off since 2006, a lot of D&D 3.5
games, and am just now cracking into D&D 4 (yea I seem to
wait until the systems are dead and not printed anymore
to get into).

Welcome Morning

This is a really long running thread. My daughter was 11
weeks when I first posted. She now is 9.5 years and my
boy is 5.

Ooooo, neato old thread!
I'm a happy social worker, but likely more importantly a
husband and daddy. :)
While my part time gig is seeing neglected and abused
kids for in home therapy, my day job has been nonprofit
program management. :D
Be well everyone!
