Top Map Making Tools For Tabletop Gamers, Dungeons & Dragons and more!
We all know how important it is to have as much visualization as possible when playing our Tabletop RPG games.
Nothing makes you feel right inside the game world more than a map! But how do you make one? Surely, not everyone is a bad ass artist ready to whip up a dungeons and dragons town map or dungeon maps on the spot. Well, have hope... there are tools out there that will help you create the most epic map you can think of!
Let's talk about the best tools for making maps in 2020.
The first tool I want to talk about is Inkarnate.
The reason I want to bring up Inkarnate first, is it's the most easy to use map maker out there. Within an hour you can sign up and have your map made!
Another reason I like Inkarnate is the pricing model, if you just want to give Inkarnate a try, you can sign up for the Monthly, and pay just $5 to use it for a month, rather than shell out the cost of the year which is $25.
Inkarnate is full of capability. It has an easy to understand interface and plenty of objects to create your maps.
It can create regional maps, world maps, dungeon maps, town maps and more, perfect for your dungeons and dragons campaign.
RPG MAP EDITOR 2
This tool is really good at making dungeon maps. It has an easy to use interface and best of all, its FREE!
Use this tool to create colorful dungeon maps on a budget. Your tabletop RPG games will never be the same.
The rival to Inkarnate, Wonderdraft truly is wonderful! What we really love about WonderDraft is the community of people who make awesome assets to use. There is just about anything and everything you could think of putting on a map made by the WonderDraft community. Gamers of all sorts can use this map editor. WonderDraft costs $29.99, but after purchase you get access to the user community and a lifetime of using the app.
Another awesome dungeon map creator. This edit is also capable of making world maps and region maps.The cool part about D20Pro is that they offer a 30 day free trial.
These are my top map making tools for 2020.
