The Best DnD Map Makers

The two types of D&D maps

Because it is a tabletop game, most of the visualization in D&D is left up to the imagination. Some groups may rely on the DM’s descriptions of the locations they find themselves in, while other groups use maps. Whether you play in-person or online and with or without battlemaps, chances are you will be creating a map for something while playing D&D.

There are two main types of maps used commonly in D&D: regional maps and battlemaps.

Regional Maps

These maps are typically on a larger scale than battlemaps. They show the region from a bird’s-eye view. These maps can be anything from a world map, provincial map, or city map.

If used for exploration, then these maps can contain a grid. This type of exploration is typically called a “hex crawl” and is addressed in depth in the D&D Adventure Tomb of Annihilation.

Battlemaps

These maps are usually on a smaller scale than regional maps. Typically, they are self-contained for a single encounter, though they can grow to display the entirety of a dungeon or building that players are working their way through.

Battlemaps are usually overlaid by a standard 5-foot by 5-foot grid to make player movement and scaling consistent.

How to make D&D maps

There are two primary ways to make maps; they can be hand-drawn or made using online software. Hand-drawn maps have been around since the inception of D&D. These maps, most commonly used for in-person games, can be combined with terrain pieces or miniatures.

Hand-drawn maps can be drawn on anything from a piece of printer paper to whiteboards, but in recent years, wet-erase grid maps have become the crème de la crème solution.

Mapmaking software, due to the sheer number of options, is a much less straightforward solution. In this article, we will explore which software is best for which purposes while making D&D maps.

The Best DnD Map Making Software

There will never be a straight-up “best” D&D map maker. The below-featured map makers will list the pros and cons of each software, as well as their best use case.

Inkarnate

Inkarnate is easily the best fantasy map making software on the market. It’s got a slick UI, tons of assets, and can create detailed maps in a matter of minutes.

Pros

  • Easily the most fleshed out, versatile map building option
  • Completely online, no software download or install
  • UI is thorough enough to create amazing maps but streamlined enough to build maps quickly
  • Free and Pro versions
  • Can import custom assets
  • Pro version allows for commercial sale of maps

Cons

  • Walls don’t “snap” together, which can make the creation of dungeons or other indoors areas clunky
  • Subscription model, not a one time purchase
  • UI can get slow on big maps with lots of assets or slow internet connection

Use Case

Inkarnate can be used to create regional maps and battlemaps. I have found myself reaching for Inkarnate most of the time I am creating a straightforward battlemap. Because I try to keep my session prep to under two hours, it’s extremely nice to be able to punch out a detailed map in five to ten minutes.

Inkarnate’s regional map maker is also a great tool, though I tend to use it much less often.

I do have to say that creating a map with lots of rooms, such as a dungeon or large building, is a bit of a grind with Inkarnate simply due to the level of detail they require.

All in all, I would compare Inkarnate to a “map-focused Photoshop”. The layering, blending, and usage of assets has a similar feel to the infamous image editing software and while it might not be the most streamlined D&D map-making software, it is a great mix of easy to use and customizable.

Check out the free or pro version at inkarnate.com

Wonderdraft

Wonderdraft is a fantasy map-making software that focuses specifically on regional maps.

Pros

  • Regional map-making tools are unrivaled
  • One time purchase

Cons

  • Software download, no in-browser option
  • While battlemaps can be created using the software, it is certainly not meant for this application
  • No free option

Use Case

Wonderdraft is unrivaled in its ability to create regional maps. While Inkarnate is a close second, the one time purchase, huge array of assets, and streamlined UI make this the best solution for larger-scale maps.

Buy Wonderdraft for $29.99 at wonderdraft.net

Dungeondraft

From the same creator as Wonderdraft, Dungeondraft focuses specifically on smaller-scale battlemaps.

Pros

  • The vector-based system can scale to any resolution
  • Walls and floors are seamlessly integrated, making the creation of complex indoor environments a breeze
  • Custom assets, brushes, etc. are easily available
  • No internet required to use
  • Built-in lighting system
  • One time purchase
  • No additional commercial licensing

Cons

  • Software download, no in-browser option
  • While regional maps can be created using the software, it is certainly not meant for this application
  • No free option
  • From personal experience, can crash unexpectedly on the M1 Macbook Air
  • Fewer assets than Inkarnate

Use Case

Dungeondraft has been my go-to battlemap creator recently, especially when doing an interior scene such as a dungeon, cave, or fortress. In my opinion, Dungeondraft’s Building Tool is the quickest and most effective way to create indoor battlemaps out of any D&D map-making software available on the market.

Buy Dungeondraft for $29.99 at https://dungeondraft.net/

Dungeon Scrawl

Dungeon Scrawl is an online map builder designed to create simple maps with a hand-drawn feel.

Pros

  • Import from donjon Random Dungeon generator
  • The UI is very clean and easy to use
  • The simplified purpose of the tool allows the creation of complex buildings or intricate tunnels very quickly
  • Free to use
  • Tons of unlimited pixel exportable options that can integrate with Photoshop or Illustrator to further populate maps
  • Assets by Two Minute Tabletop (for non-commercial use only)

Cons

  • Maps cannot mimic real-world textures like Inkarnate or Dungeon Fog
  • Battlemaps only, no regional map options

Use Case

Dungeon Scrawl is meant to do one thing really well, create intricate dungeons. Whether you are creating a large building with multiple rooms and floors, or a cavern that twists and turns under the ground, Dungeon Scrawl is the best option to create them quickly and effectively.

If you would like your dungeon to be populated with intricate features, Inkarnate is a better bet but it will take much longer to produce a quality result.

You can check out Dungeon Scrawl for free at probabletrain.itch.io/dungeon-scrawl. If you like it, please support the developers 🙂

Dungeon Fog

Dungeon Fog is similar to Inkarnate. It is an online builder that has tons of assets and textures with a freemium model.

Pros

  • Can organize maps into groups or “floors” as well as into campaigns
  • Door and windows snap to walls allowing for easier creation of multiple rooms
  • Better organization of assets than Inkarnate
  • Can be used to make regional maps and battlemaps

Cons

  • Much more expensive than Inkarnate
  • Less free assets than Inkarnate
  • UI isn’t very easy to navigate
  • Very hard to find which assets can be used for free users

Use Case

Dungeon Fog is a competitor with Inkarnate, but in my opinion, it is more expensive with a less user-friendly interface and limited functionality.

The biggest advantage Dungeon Fog has over Inkarnate is the ability to quickly make dungeons or large buildings with interconnecting rooms.

Dungeon Builder by Hobbyte

Hobbyte is a downloadable map builder that focuses on isometric (3D) dungeons.

Pros

  • Extremely unique and cool way of displaying maps
  • Commercial options available
  • Can make small regional maps and dungeon maps
  • Easy to mod assets
  • You can roll dice, open doors, reveal traps, and gradually present your maps manually or using their fog of war feature. This is important because these maps would be extremely difficult to use in a typical online platform like Roll20 and Fantasy Grounds.
  • Scalable exporting to fit any resolution

Cons

  • The free version is more of a demo than a viable map maker
  • Commercial licenses are much more expensive than Inkarnate
  • Maps can be confusing to look at
  • No online solution

Use Case

Hobbyte is the best option for isometric D&D maps. Not everybody will be looking for a solution to make isometric maps, but if you are this is the best option.

You can check out the free verion of Hobbyte here and purchase the Dungeon Builder and commercial licenses here.

RPG Map Editor 2

RPG Map Editor 2 is an online and downloadable D&D map maker that focuses on pixel-style maps.

Pros

  • The best thing about this tool, in my opinion, is its integration with the Watabou One Page Dungeons tool and the donjon Random Dungeon Generator. Both of these tools are stellar starts to creating a dungeon, and being able to manipulate them with RPG Map Editor 2 really brings it home.
  • Completely free (even commercial use)
  • Cool, pixel-style aesthetic
  • Maps can be exported to upload to Roll20 or other virtual tabletops

Cons

  • There aren’t a ton of assets or textures but you can custom import icons
  • Focuses mainly on dungeons, rather than other types of maps

Use Case

RPG Map Editor 2 is a great tool for creating simpler dungeons. I use it when I want to pre-generate the dungeon using Watabou or donjon and then make edits to the layout with RPG Map Editor.

You can RPG Map Editor 2 for free here. If you enjoy using it, please support the devs 🙂

Profantasy’s Campaign Cartographer 3

CC3 is easily the most intensive (and expensive) map-making software available on the market.

Pros

  • Extremely powerful, vector-based, CAD software
  • Frequently featured on HumbleBundle to make the large price tag more palatable
  • Add ons can allow for making all kinds of maps from large-scale regional maps down to small-scale, single building maps
  • Tons of asset packs available for download that can customize the way your maps look and feel. Plus, some asset packs are by Mike Schley, a professional map maker who has made maps for many official D&D modules

Cons

  • Gaining access to the entire suite of map-making tools can cost $1245 USD when not on sale
  • Because the functionality is so extensive, there is a very steep learning curve

Use Case

Campaign Cartographer 3 is for hardcore map builders. If you want to invest time and money into becoming a professional or semi-professional map builder, CC3 is for you. If you are a DM who is looking for quick and easy software to make maps for their sessions, I would strongly consider looking at other options.

Inkarnate

Inkarnate is a very powerful map making tool that has a free version to it. I have to admit that the free version does not contain all the bells and whistles that the pro and standard packages offer, but you are still getting a great deal. Unlike the last two entries on this list, Inkarnate is a map builder in which you can draw out your own continents and populate them with different shades, stamps of images like trees or castles and bridges as well as place text on the map. These can be done in a square grid which is good for making a simple battle map. Free form or hex designs are also an option with this tool. The tools provided with the free version are still robust and there is something really fun about slaving away making maps in this software that I always enjoyed doing.

I don’t have experience with the Pro or Standard versions of the software some if anyone has a membership, comment below and let us know your favorite perks.

To get started with this map designer, you will need to create an account. Try it out for yourself using the link below:
