I started this site back in 2004 after the free hosting I was using to store the roleplaying game maps I was drawing was shut down. With a dynamic site I was able to add the random map creators with the "Random Room" dungeon map creator first followed by Caves then "Wandering Line" dungeons. In 2006 I added the Wilderness map creator and made regular updates until 2008 when work and my personal life took me away from updating the site. I kept swearing to do an update for years but finally got around to it in the summer of 2014. Life, family, and work got in the way again. Fast forward to late 2021 and a much needed update is in order. The first step is to fix up some of the underlying tech, then roll out full updates to all of the original random map makers.
Hang tight, this could get interesting!
