    Dang it! You got to it first. I was going to make a ible about how to do this for fantasy maps. You ever try it with a map? I've made some sweet Middle Earth maps like this.

    Sweet! No I've never tried it with a map. You should make a instructable on how to make Middle Earth maps. Do you use a program on the computer or do you write it on paper?

    No, I just printed them out :) You can find some pretty good ones on google images. I did a very nice Thorin's map of the lonely mountain.
