I need some help.
Okay, maybe that’s both vague and obvious… let’s try again.
I need some advice on a good map making product I can quickly and easily use and deploy images from for the Darkwood role playing setting I’m planning on running over Google+.
Specifically I need something that can turn a concept map like this (which I hastily threw together with a simple image manipulation tool):
Into something a bit more professional and pretty.
Now I know if I took some more time and tried harder, I’ve demonstrated in the past that I’m quite capable and believe I could turn this into a nice parchment looking map of yore, but I’m getting to the point I don’t want to take the time to do so.
EDIT: I took the time to do just that. I like it, and it works for the setting, but as a functional map I’m worried it just doesn’t do the trick.
I also realize I could just put pencil to paper and freehand something. And to be fair, that’s my default backup plan which I’m not wholly opposed to using, but if something simple to use exists, why not give a new product a try?
I’d prefer whatever product(s) recommended be able to take me from large scale maps of this nature down to a town level.
What’s more, ideally I’d like to be able to display the town level maps in isometric view.
Finally, huge bonus points if your suggestion is free or has a free demo with full features.
Anyone have any ideas?
