I was cruising around G+ the other day when I came upon a post linking to Inkarnate. I thought it looked cool and investigated further.
Inkarnate lets you make maps. It’s a simple interface and tailored for roleplaying games, but I was clapping and squealing in delight. I’ve looked into making maps before. They have installable programs like Campaign Cartographer, but I didn’t want to take the time to do the install and then learn the software. There are tutorials for making maps using graphics software, which I already have installed and know how to use, but I’m not so good at drawing slopes and ridges.
Inkarnate is a web-based and easy to use. I spent about a half hour on my map.
Since Inkarnate is simple, I couldn’t portray my world exactly as I envisioned it. Halqua is actually raised compared to the other provinces with waterfalls flowing over the edges, and Lumenor is a giant ring-shaped canyon with sandstone red walls. But still, Inkarnate is pretty darn cool and quick to learn.
What do you think of my map?
