The title of Master Mapper is bestowed rather than requested. We observe what goes on. We see what happens.
There are thousands of excellent and active Campaign Cartographer mappers out there but, from time-to-time, one stands out from
the rest. One is more deserving than the rest. One becomes a Master Mapper.
