City Map generator by Frugal GM

Frugal GM has told us of a city map generator and it’s free (I initially thought he wrote it which is why the title of the blog is still that way).

Wait what? What is it?

The Roleplaying City Map Generator comfortably creates maps of any kind of settlement, such as villages, medieval towns, or 20th century big cities, in few minutes requiring only a couple of mouse clicks. You define the values of various city parameters, either manually or via pre-defined or own templates – The Roleplaying City Map Generator randomly creates realistic maps which can be printed or exported as image also as matrix or section.

Ok, but what does it look like?

city-map-UIHow did I not know of this? Godlike. Awesome. Praise be.

Why? Because a quick shot map of a city is far better than just using words. Players can get a feel, even if that feel proves rough, this is so much more awesome than using generic stuff.

  1. The problem is that the attribution information is a link to a defunct German website. I did find an email address and I’m trying to get more information myself.

  2. I had a bash at finding them too, and got the dead end page. Shame really.

    I thought it was yours as I think I saw a link to the Crystal Ball program for dnd 3.5 from your site too. I put 3+7 together and came up with 4.
