Description

The App of Mapping was forged by learned hands deep in the scent-laden cavern of a humble Dungeon Master on a quest to automate dungeon and encounter creation with a magical tool for all comrade DMs. Many foes emerged while casting the App of Mapping, but in the end, good prevailed over evil to bring forth an app that randomly generates clean looking maps with a retro feel and detailed 5e-based encounters, all with the simple touch of a button. DMing will never be the same after the App of Mapping ushers in the bright dawn of a new era. Or actually DMing will likely stay the same, but just be easier with a handy app. Only the slow, noble churning of time within the multiverse will tell. TL;DR: This app helps DMs create cool dungeons.

    Things I like: - The monster stat blocks are just one click away. - Very fast and simple. - Ability to add monsters manually to a room, duplicate existing ones, and apply (or remove) detailed filters across the dungeon or while searching individual monsters. - Free without annoying ads, thank you, developer! The paid upgrade is very reasonable and not necessary to make use of the app. Things I’d like to see: - A faster way to set party size and level. For example, one click or scroll to say Party Level: 6, Party Size: 4. It’s a clunky going one party member at a time. - Less nonsensical names maybe? They’re a hoot, but also too silly to be actually useful. Not terribly important. - The ability to draw the dungeon manually would be a great feature, though possibly outside the scope of the app. I’m imagining a blue screen that I could “erase” by dragging over the squares to reveal the grid underneath. The app could then recognize spaces wider than 2 squares as rooms. - Stairs and levels. Rare is the dungeon that’s flat. - Minimum number of rooms to counterpoint the Max Rooms setting. - Biggest issue, dealbreaker for me: Doesn’t seem like a complete monster list, or the Environment filter is wonky. Apparently at level 2 and 3, the only coastal monster available is a Bronze Dragon Wyrmling. At level 3 planar, only a Coatl shows up. I tried level 3 with dungeon, underground and cave, and only seemed to get oozes. Where are goblins, kobolds, dire rats, skeletons, darkmantles, and so on?
