Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator vs Inkarnate opinions
Most users think Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator is a great alternative to Inkarnate.
danielmichel While Azgaar's tool allows for some level of customization, the maps are always procedurally generated. Inkarnate allows hand-drawn maps but lacks some of the simulation elements.

This Map generator has the BEST tools, 100%FREE, it has options that even Inkarnate does not have (culture, religion, population,military,etc...) The only thing this needs is a little graphic and stamps improvement,since then it would totally SURPASS the huge rival to map generator sites/apps, Inkarnate...
