Make nice looking RPG maps easily.

RPG Map is a tabletop oriented map editor
with the keep it clean & simple philosophy in mind.


RPG Map is a tool I’ve built to make maps for my tabletop RPG sessions, with my friends. It’s born from the fact that most existing tools were either looking bad or were simply overly complex to use.

My approach is to make an easy to use tool to create beautiful maps quickly.

You can still access the old Flash-based version (source code available on GitHub)

From 2013 to 2020, the “Cthulhu manor” demo map shows the evolutions of RPG Map

    This program is really not bad, and i have started using it in my starting planing phases and i get its suposed to be simple. It just needs a few extra features that are missing in my opinion.
    It would be nice to be able to change the wall colors like the other items to make diferent wall types in one scene. On top of that it would be nice to be able to make walls between the grid tyles instead on the grid ti make thinner walls for houses

    and lastly the ligts look great, but when trying to make fireplaces and other it would be great to free place the lights instead of grid locked

    Its impressive how hard is to find this type of hidden gems tbh. I discovered this yesterday and so far its amazing. One thing that tickles me is how we could add our own grounds

      Sorry about that! You should try the downloadable version to see if you also have the issue

    I've been using your shit for almost as long as I've been dating my girlfriend (about 3 years). this editor is niiiiice. One thing–can you make a way that you can get hex-type walls and stuff? It would be a big ask, but getting everything to adhere to a hex grid could be really really nice

    Just started fiddling with the software, so I'm nowhere near experienced with it; its actually the first bit of map-making software I've ever tried out. However; it would be nice if one could increase the size of the UI.. I'm visually impaired and literally cannot read a thing of the text on screen in the program.. a way to increase the size of the UI would be great. Still think I can make good use of it, regardless.

    you can add loading of composite images to walls and doors with windows, as well as add more starting images such as chests, tables and kitchen items

    This is an awesome mapmaking tool! Easy to use with simple but detailed graphics… I like it a lot, but I'm having one major problem.

    I've created a quick map, but when I click the "download map to my computer" it shows the "preparing map file.." and nothing else happens. Is it browser dependent? Do I need to download the paid/windows version? Am I missing something? The image export works fine, but I can't save my work for later use.

    Thanks for all the hard work on this – it make my work as a GM so much easier!

      You should check in your Downloads folder, there should be a JSON file there The windows version is "pay what you want including free": you can pay if you want, but you can also download it for free, and it's fine

    Could you please re-upload v15? The thin walls implemented the way they are render the program unusable.

    Amazing tool for create my maps. I create my own campaign in Cyberpunk 2020, and i'm using Deppnight to generate images for Roll20, and works fine.

    I love this software, but there are two things that really irk me.
    First is the walls taking up an entire space, rather than sitting in between them on the grid line. This can make it really hard to accurately import or copy dnd maps, and adds another level of frustration when describing them to players.

    Second is the color and not being able to add rbg values or hexcodes to get an exact color and replicate it. Also being able to remove the lines on the wall texture would be nice when going for a style like the classic blue dnd maps or just going for any clean minimal style.

    Overall though I just picked this up and it's definitely my go to from now on, cheers for all your effort.

    Hello, if I will Pay by (there is 12$) – all this money will go for You ? I'm using Your map maker and it's amazing piece of software. I don't want to use it for free anymore.

  19. Justin:

    I love the program, especially since I managed to find a bunch of assets to add into it. Only thing I honestly hate about it is the fact the lighting can only snap to spaces instead of being freely placed
