Librarian's Comments

AutoRealm is a free role-playing game mapping program. The author, Andrew Gryc, has made the program open source under the GNU General Public License. This program, while having some limitations, is an excellent mapping program that can design castles, cities, and more. If you want better, you'll need to buy or borrow a commercial drawing program such as CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator.

The casual user should find this program user friendly and fairly easy to learn.
