I will be using it to make maps for my RPG. I suck at anything visual, but with a tool like this, I believe I can make something functional.

I'd love to make my own maps of the worlds of fantasy series that I'm reading. The maps that are provided between books often don't line up together quite perfectly, and they focus entirely on only the portions of the worlds that are relevant to each book. I'd love to put together my own, comprehensive maps showing all of the locations from the series.

Good Morning,

I and a small group of friends are putting together a new fantasy Pathfinder game with our own setting material. We plan to host virtual table top games for groups who are unable to come together to play because of distance. We are planning on a massive world map so multiple parties can be in the same world making changes and effecting the world as a whole. d20Pro will be used as our VTT system with Other World Mapper being used for our cartography setup.

Hey all. Another long time gamer here looking to use the tool for game setting maps. I have an elaborate world I'd like to finally do maps for and this looks like it may be the one tool I've been looking for. Previous genre tools on the market have been more an exercise in trying to basically learn CAD than simple map making tools. I have some high hopes for where this project is heading.

Hi everyone. I'm a freelance cartographer, working for several OSR gaming companies. My plans for Other World Mapper are to hopefully be able to replace Campaign Cartographer with it. CC3 is a great program and has been my working tool of choice for the last 15 years or so, but it always had some major flaws which Profantasy never solved or even addressed. My email exchange with Stephanie from the OWM team was so heartening that I'm very hopeful that this will soon be a thing of the past.

Hi everyone,

I will use Other World Mapper for our RPG campaigns. But I guess my first few maps will be 'just for fun'.

I'll use OWM for RPGs. While I love drawing my own maps, sometimes the game is in three hours and there's no time for quality hand made maps.

This awesome tool will be the perfect compromise.

Pen-and-paper gaming for me. A world map, and sometimes local maps, are an essential part of the campaign settings I create. And, even as a player, I enjoy sometimes mapping and charting the party's adventures. I'm hoping OWM will help me step up my game from terrible hand-drawn maps.

Same, would like to start a 5e campaign using it.
