I'm Black and Blue how 'bout you?
Edition wars kill players,Dungeons and Dragons needs every player it can get.
Spoiler blocks are done with [.sblock.] and [./sblock.], without the "." characters.
Also, I'd like to inquire which font you used for the naming?
I think you are overdoing it quite a bit.
Mostly it was intended as "post your map" not "post any map you can find".
Also, if all those are from the Cartographers Guild, you would be better off just referring to the page, because the page contains a lot more than just maps and they would probably be happy if you would not just take the maps, but rather link to them as a whole...
Where can I get the font? I can't find it at dafont.com, which means it's rare. A google search also does not yield much.
Would it be possible to send it over via E-Mail if it is a free font?
You might want to take a look at this thrad: KLICK ME!
I have posted a short and mostly easy tutorial on how to create maps your own with not much work. You should give it a try, my artistic skills are down in the cellar, too, but maps are mostly easy when you got the hang of it.
Continued from above ...

Just joined. I was going to post more maps, then below, except that I see my maps are already posted!?
I am more than a little disturbed to find my maps and others from the Cartographers's Guild posted in someone else's thread post, with no reference to the guild, or to the individual mappers. Just so you know, most of these maps are licensed CC, which means they are free to use in your own personal games. That doesn't give you permission to post them online anywhere you want - that's copyright infringement.
Seyon, you don't have permission to do so, just to let you know for future postings, elsewhere.
My maps you posted above include: Archean Trade League, Darkovia, Qashya Mal and the Lands of Crae
So here's a couple of mine, that Seyon didn't manage to thief away...

Well, in fact I did mention that they were gotten from the Cartographer's GUild, but, for what its worth, sorry.
You do understand, that we're not upset anymore. The content has been pulled, our work is protected - everything is fine now.
I see you did mention the guild in the start of your post - I did miss that last time. Although its probably best not to post anyone's copyrighted material, especially without their permission (lesson learned for you), but if you had taken the extra step to say, this is from the Cartographers' Guild, this map was created by so and so, and it is licensed CC, then had you posted the map, (and done this for every single map you posted...) there may have been no issue at all. Posting our name as creators of the content is one of the rights of our CC licensing.
Now we understand that you are underage, and it was a complete misunderstanding on your part - everything is fine now. No one is upset with you. Just be careful on what you post in the future. OK?
Please visit the guild and download some more maps for your game - that's the reason we posted them to the guild in the first place!
BTW: I took off the maps myself, and I might repost them with the correct names and stuff
Seyon, just be sure and check some of those maps posted on the Guild are NOT CC licensed and cannot be distributed at all. They are posted on the CG with permission and the requirement of not being distributed online or on publication elsewhere.
In some cases, they are maps for adventure modules that haven't been published yet - posting one of those maps might get you a call from an attorney instead of a post from someone like me. Publishers are very concerned of the intellectual properties they own.
Be sure to read the post and/or thread that a given map came from. Those instructions that say, whether you can or cannot download a given map, will be stated in that thread. Please read them, so you do not make this kind of error. Nuff said!
What GP said. No matter who you are, you need to be very careful about any image (or any kind of file you get from the net). In some cases, these images are owned by multi-million or even billion dollar corporations and they are well within their rights to sue. Now, while I doubt they would, it is within their rights.
In general, any image you see, assume that it's off limits unless the creator says otherwise via some type of license statement. Also note that Creative Commons is a set of multiple licenses, so if not sure and it is not explicitly sated WHICH CC license, get clarification before using the image anywhere other than home use.
There are of course many other licenses possible, of which is Creative Commons License only one.
Also, I happen to be one of the community leaders over at the Cartographers Guild and would welcome you or anyone else to come on over. We have some great people over there, tutorials for various software, and the people are very helpful when people ask questions.
Looks nice, that map of yours. Very interesting style! :D
