I've joined the forum, because I'm playing with the idea to implement an editor to easily create fantasy maps for roleplaying campaigns. Maps like such maps found in lord of the ring books. I wonder how much different figures (like tree, hills, waves, obligatory sea monsters etc.) are needed to be able to create something reasonable. The editor should be implemented purely in java script and run in any common browser. So I'm currently looking for input :-)

And I just started a editor for dungeon maps (and some kind of exploration mode) Dungeon Pilot - Dungeon Editor Example, where I would love to get some feedback on.

Similar to the dungeon editor, I would like to feature the map editor with some kind of exploration mode (the game master sees the full map and can define what parts are shown to the players).

best regards,
