There is a skill that a lot of GMs I know, follow, or like have that I seem to lack. That skill is Maps. Whether it is a world map for a fantasy game, a city map for an urban fantasy game, or a dungeon map for the latest adventure in the local Pathfinder game.
I'm not sure what it is, but my brain is just kind of awkward when it comes to laying out how a space looks. Even if I know what a space looks like, even if I'm basing it off a place I've been to hundreds if not thousands of times and know all the way around, I have issues rendering it on paper or drawing it out on a board for folks.
So, for today, I figured I'd ask all the GMs here if there are any tips, tricks, or resources that you've found helpful in drawing your own maps? I'm fine with it being a skill that takes practice, but having somewhere to start would be a definite plus.
So, how about it, got anything?
