  • A large printed map...

    The article is not very technical and does not give all the details. The map is made with Mapnik and cartoCSS with the OpenArdenneMap style. See here about OpenArdenneMap and how to use a map style defined with cartoCSS with Mapnik.

  • CC0-licensed fantasy map brushes based on historical cartography
    1 project | | 21 Dec 2023
    Adding to the other answers, there are also -besides Photoshop, Gimp, etc- specialized tools to draw fantasy maps. The site mentions Wonderdraft [0], but there are a bunch of others though not all of them support using external brushes.

    Some other tools in this space may be Watabou's tools [1], Azgaar's tools [2], Inkarnate [3], Mapforge [4], or quite a few more which you can find links to in this list [5]. Again: you could use these brushes with some of these; not all support external brushes.

  • Cosmopoeia, a GIS-based world-generating tool
    2 projects | /r/worldbuilding | 30 Nov 2023
    I'm working on a command line program, called Cosmopoeia, which can generate random fantasy worlds which can then be edited in GIS software. The idea was inspired by Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator, so the results resemble maps created with that.
  • Naming Convention - Inspiration help
    1 project | /r/worldbuilding | 24 Nov 2023
    I've been using Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator to help with naming conventions. There's a culture set dropdown and I've been using the dark fantasy set. This has sets like "Romian" and "Elladan" with a Latin-like and Greco-like naming convention respectively, and were the basis for the idea of having an Ancient Elven culture. Does anyone know where I might be able to view just the name database for this generator? I'd rather this than having to refresh the map every 5 mins.
  • What are the most clever and useful generators and tools you've seen?
    1 project | /r/rpg | 9 Oct 2023
    Can't believe there's no link to yet. It's an incredible tool with surprising depth and you can really lose yourself in generating and exploring worlds generated from scratch, their biomes, and the political relationships of nations and cultures.
  • Enhancing the map with colored provinces and borders.
    1 project | /r/StableDiffusion | 14 Sep 2023
    I've generated and exported map from to serve as a board for my board game mockup. After several playtests I've thought I could pimp up the graphics of the game even further and started using the SD for generation of the elements. So far it goes well, I've learned a lot already, but now I have huge problem with the map element itself.

    Thank you again for the software, coupled with Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator, this is making my life so much easier.
