Make nice looking RPG maps easily.

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

About

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

    I cant figure out how to set it to where i can rotate doors so they work right. Is there even a way to rotate things? If maybe have a keybind menu or at least a link to how to do things

    Nice product! Took some experiment to get the hang of it. Would love to see overland tokens like mountains, hills, swamp, etc. Overall, lots of promise! Donation sent!

    Hello, this is a really nice tool. I was wondering if it's possible to rotate the map at all? I found the ability to move the map up/down left/right but would be great to be able to turn it 90 degrees as well.

    Thanks for this anyway, it's pretty awesome.

    Since my last post, I have used the screenshot option and then edited in MS paint, the image quality is exemplary and I have already put an image up on my Instagram (stephengreenhalghauthor) which links to my facebook page (theloveislands) Both posts have a link to this site, the FB post actually has a clickable link. Thanks for this awesome resource. I cant wait to see what you make it do as you expand on the programme.

    Great Map Maker. I had problems downloading a usable version to my laptop (windows 10) but the browser version works wonderfully. I want to make several maps as a promo for my book series, obviously with credits to your website, and if I ever make anything, donations too. But I cant seem to find where the export file is hiding itself on my laptop when I try to export. Any advice good sir?

    CUSTOM ASSETS MY IDEA! Sebastien you are Awesome!

    Really cool tool. Needs support for multiple levels so you can build dungeons one level at a time. Also needs custom assets really badly.
    The scroll wheel zoom in rate also needs to be increase or have an option to increase it. Takes like 20k spins to zoom in from 100%.

    Would be really cool if there was a Snow tile. I wanted to make an Icy mt. type map but the tiles dont really scream SNOW.

      Nice idea, I will try to add it in next update.

    Thank you for making such a wonderful tool! Especially like the GM only option. For me personally more icons would be nice, different keys, trap icon etc. Now I use the exclamation mark for most things. A printer friendly output would be very nice indeed. Keep up the work!

    Would it be useful if artists coul provide you with assets? (free for now)

    Or do you think once custom assets and textures are implemented that need goes away you dont need any art from say me or anyone else?

    • Sébastien Bénard:

      Custom assets are the next big planned thing. I'm still trying to figure how to do it properly :)

    Custom Textures or more options would be nice, other than that iti is for me the best map creator i found online. Easy to understand and use, but still complexe enough to make a great variety of map designs. Thank you.

    it'd be great to have the ability to put custom textures on stuff other then that its great!

    Hello, it really is the best program in the world. Why not add new monster icons like skulls or a black-helmeted enemy.

    Awsome tool! I'm using it to for the teaching of students living in zones of traffic, abuse, poverty and broken homes. They never heard or seen RPG before! I'm trying to give then the chance of being child trhough RPG and live expectations that may give then hope and perspective. Your work are changing lives! Thank you for that!
