I'm looking online at rpg map making tools and I'm not really impressed by the few out there. I applaud their efforts at providing what they do have for free, but, I find that, free or not, they're not helping me to really get the job done well enough.
So, I turned to apps ialready have installed on my trusty LMDE computer here to see what Ican accomplish.
I'm not a GIMP pro, heck, I'm not even a GIMP amateur. Much as I would like to say I can use GIMP to make these maps and drawings, it's way out of my league. I was able to make a pdf file that had square and hexagons for map creation and turn it into a gif file though, that helped.
So, I turned to LibreOffice Draw, like MS OFFice Draw for you non-nixers out there.
I opened the new gif file with Draw and was able to use the tools to make a pretty decent map/drawing of Margles Tomb. It's perhaps not the very greatest drawing out there, but it is very usable and gets done what I needed done more than adequately.
I think Linux and opensource software has shown itself a winner for me yet again in what it is able to help me do.
