That was undeniably the inspiration, yeah. Always had a soft spot for that part of Faerûn. :)

Fantastic. My first fantasy novel, the first thing I did was draw the map (pencil and paper back in the 1980s though!)

Yeah, I also tend to visualize the world-building before I jump into the narrative, too. :)

Well.  That was certainly a tutorial!  Really, really nice :)  I've tried to make a map before, but only saw a tutorial for the outline and none of the inner parts, so this is really helpful

WOW! That is one amazingly detailed, excellent tutorial! Great advice about labeling your layers! (I've been guilty of not doing so, and suffered for it!) I do have one suggestion, and that would be to pick a somewhat heavier font. Depending on the monitor/computer, there are places where it's a bit hard to read.

Anyway, congrats on the DD!
