Mapping Tool: Hex - World Creator

The next step in my creation of the Shadow's Apex campaign is a decent map, and since I don't have the cartography skills to make one myself, I went online in search of a free map maker. I'm not usually into the hex map thing, but lately I've been reminiscing about the old Greyhawk map from 1st Edition, so I figure now is as good a time as any to reintroduce them to my game table. The first program to catch my eye was Hexmapper, but it only took about 15 minutes to realize that this wasn't the program for me.

After trying a few other programs that left me less than impressed, I finally stumbled onto Hex - World Creator... and I am loving it. Not only does this program have a user friendly GUI... it comes equipped with a tile set that actually looks somewhat professional. Check it out:













Hopefully, I will be soon be able to share the Shadow's Apex map. Lets just hope I have time to fill in all of these little hexes!
