Drawing Maps, Part I

Drawing Maps Part I For quite a long time, I've been looking for a map drawing tool for my various campaigns. I tried a few programs, but didn't quite like any of them.

Yesterday I read a suggestion from a slashdot.org user recommending using a regular vector-based drawing program instead of a map drawing program. It was in an Ask Slashdot article asking for suggestions on such programs.

I decided to try Inkscape, since I've heard of it before and it's available in Ubuntu's repositories.

I'm satisfied with the results so far. My first map is somewhat crude, but it's better than nothing and it's enough to play with. By the way, it's for my campaign setting wiki, Islands of War. Check it out if you haven't already. It's growing every day and getting more detailed with each edit.
