So, I need some simple map making program. I had a free one a while ago but I donít remember whatís it called. I need it to map the interior of a large castle, and I would prefer some neat digital over my rough drawings. Any suggestions?

It's expensive, but Campaign Cartographer is good.

After a long time spent looking for a good mapping tool, I realised that an art program like Inkscape is sufficient. It doesn't have any special map-related tools, but I find it capable enough, as well as being free.

I've got a program called AutoREALM that's pretty nifty for mapping. Basically, it's just a drawing program but with a library of map symbols and a tool for fractal lines that make for good coasts and rivers. Free, to boot.

MapTool (http://rptools.net/doku.php?id=maptool:intro) is rather cool for online play. If you have GIMP or Photoshop available, you could use this guide here: http://forums.rpghost.com/showthread.php?t=42788
