    My 9 year old son recently inspired me to introduce him to CC3. He and I have been pen & paper mapping for about 6 months now and I remembered how cool Campaign Cartographer is. Here's his first posted map. Thanks all...

    Great start.

    I envy today's youth. When I was 9, the very first version of Campaign Cartographer wouldn't be made for another 10 years.

    Great stuff! I often have kids trying out the program at conventions and it's always lovely to see them trying it out - some, like your son, produce great first maps with very little help.

    When I was 9, cell phones were science fiction.

    When I was nine, Pluto was still a planet!

    That's messed up what happened to Pluto.

    The map however, looks good. Oh to have the imagination of that age, and the bank account of a later age..

    When I was 9 I had 2 full time jobs, and got frostbite walking to school in June! Also I had 2 kids and a ex-wife by then! We didn't have Tide Pods, we didn't even have a washing machine. You kids on your "electricity!"

    Map is awesome he is already a monster!!! Good job!!!

    You were 9 when you had a wife and 2 kids?! Trump would be jealous.

    Sadly, it was galaxy astronomers that demoted Pluto. The planetary astronomers had no say. Which I think is silly.

    That is a superb first map. Well done!

    I hope you have many more years of fun :)

    (When I was 9, there was no such thing as a computer screen, and computers only ever produced an endless stream of tickertape with lots of holes punched in it! :P)
