All of the maps here have been personally illustrated by cartographer Christopher West. Chris got his start in the hobby game industry back in the year 2000 when he began illustrating maps on a freelance basis for Dungeon Magazine and other publications by industry leader Wizards of the Coast. Since then he has developed original maps for brands such as Dungeons & Dragons, Star Wars, d20 Modern, Alternity, Pathfinder, Numenera, Mutants and Masterminds, and countless others. Chris holds a BFA degree in Applied Media Arts from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania, where he learned to use Adobe Photoshop before the program had any professors trained to teach it. He still uses it today in all of his cartography work. While he still does freelance work on the side, most of his time now goes into producing new map content for direct sale to miniatures gamers and RPG players from his small home studio in northwestern Pennsylvania.
