Well, I have an image of the map I will be using as a base, and I am writing specifics for it so I can use it in a probably-going-to-be-graphicless game.

Basically, setting encounters and such?

The only thing written on encounters will probably be a list of wandering enemies. Im thinking more of room dressing (i.e. "In room 15, there is two staircases on each lower corner (leading to 16 and 17), which are accompanied by large archtop doors. Room 16 is empty, but extremely warm from mold cultivation.")

Im currently writing it on a doc which I can share with anyone who wishes to help with writing this kind of stuff. Also, if you do help, feel free to use bits of this as imagery for your own maps.

Ah, I can't use Docs. My phone doesn't have the memory space, and I don't have a PC. I can give suggestions though.

That is fair;- I probably won't be posting much info on the map in the forums as to avoid cheating in the future RP. I can post it on an internet-accessible website though and PM you the link if you wish.

I've never actually made a map for RPs, but I have been reading the Dungeon Master's Guide. I'll do my best to help you out.

I have never made a map as well; i'm just basing it off of maps i've played in Nethack, and a little bit off of dreams. Another note, the image of the map may take a little bit for me to upload somewhere as the final draft is only on paper right now; if you're willing, we can just write as we go along without the image base, and use just a general summary as a start.
