This is by far the best dungeon mapping program that I have ever used! The controls allowing you to adjust sizes and percentages of features, rooms, and size of the overall layout allows a very customized map. Well worth the price. It's an excellent value for the price for any GM!

One of the best dungeon creators I have ever seen or used! EMG Mapper is a great product and will save me countless hours of dungeon creation. It is highly customisable; - with a bit of tinkering you can create anything from your standard run-of-the-mill dungeon (though high quality and very complex), to a intensely perplexing maze and all the way through to a City Block with shops on all sides!! Yes, that's right - an actual City Block! Whilst you can not save the maps directly from the program, all you need to do is "Preview" your newly created map and do a screen shot ("ALT" and "PrtScn") - from there you should be able to paste and save (PNG format worked best for me!) into most graphics app. ... allowing you to fine tune your map with even more levels of customisation! Plus help/support feedback was also good.

(Creating a City Block takes some tinkering to get out - and a small amount of "after-creation-editing" - as you use the generated rooms as individual shops; use Embracing Corridor; Rectangles - 100%; Large Rooms; Corridor Exits - doors 100%; Room Exits - doors 100%; Density - 100%; all Misc Settings & Exits 0% and a 20%/80% Room/Corridor Ratio. Only those rooms that front your main corridor/"Street" are shops, with the other rooms NOT fronting the corridor the homes of the shopkeepers plus back alleyways and other residential buildings ... the good thing is, because you have the option of all the rooms being numbered, if you develop a 1-100 table generator for city shops, what each shop on the block actually is is also pre-generated!! *Note for room numbers over 100, subtract 100.)

A marvellous product I can not speak highly enough of.

Probably one of the best random dungeon map generator I have ever seen even though there are some free alternatives out there.

I bought the EMG Mapper several weeks ago. It is a very good random map generator. There are many options and it is really good to get good ideas for visual design of your dungeon. My only problem is I would like to save the map for use in my Campaign management software. I emailed support twice about this and have heard nothing from them not even a reply stating we have received your emails. I am taking one point off for lack of support. Disregarding that this a great random dungeon generator. At the moment if you want to save the file I would wait or try something different until there is a way to save the map.

The lack of support complaint is both fair and unfortunate. I'm a mostly one-man operation, and was blissfully unaware that emails to my support-addressed emails were not reaching me. I only get one or two support requests in a year (out of many hundreds of customers and growing), so I had no reason to go looking for problems. I have made sure that the link is now working: support@emeraldgiant.com. Apologies, and my assurance that when there is a problem, I will work hard to make it right. Have fun out there, Randy Baker Emerald Giant Software

I found this program to be very useful for making adjustable, random maps. There are a ton of options on this program, it is 'user friendly' and I was quickly able to put it to work for me. I will be using it almost exclusively for my published RPGs.

The categories on the program are adjusted by percentages. They are too numerous to list but include rooms, room sizes, doors, secret doors, colors, shadows, traps, corridors, size of corridors, style of corridors, stairs, layout style and the list goes on and on.

It is designed to print out directly but I wanted to use it to make maps to include in my published adventures. I had a question about this and the designer told me how to save them as PDFs. The support for this is excellent.

The price is a big plus. I highly recommend this program for your dungeon mapping needs. Black Death Publishing is well satisfied with it!
