Forum Game Tools

This thread is for sharing websites and advice that can help people make forum games.

Donjon is a site that can generate random worlds, names, quests, roll dice, create monsters and much more. (Site status: Online)

Azgaar’s Fantasy map generator can generate full maps with hundreds of individual towns. (Site status: Online)

GMWorldmap is a tool that generates a endless procedural landscape. When you open it it always starts you at the same spot, so my advice is to zoom out to max and then look for a region that looks good to you. (Site status: Online)


Cool thread and cool links, they sound pretty useful.

If you need a name for something, Fantasy Name Generator could be pretty handy to use.
They have many categories to choose from. Things like: Species names, Location names, names for fantasy plants and many more.
I highly recomend checking this one out if you have difficulties coming up with names for something.

This site should work fine on any device.

Hey, do you guys want me to edit the main post when adding new sites or just post it as a reply?

I’d say new posts, because I don’t often check back old posts.

Posting new stuff should also prevent this thread being buried under new threads.

GIMP is a free editing software in the same vain as photoshop. You can use it to draw a map and then edit it as your forum game goes on.

Space Engine is a Game/Tool/Engine that can generate a procedural universe for you to explore, it takes pride in being as scientific accurate as possible so if you want a idea for a realistic planet or just a quick image of a planetoid in your forum games solar system then this is for you. Its also free.
