The Robotic Fantasy Mapper

On the Old School Gamers Facebook group, I saw a mention of this so I had to investigate. Sure, I like drawing my own maps. But this is worth checking out. It's a bot that spews out a random map of a fantasy world once per hour. How cool is that? I did read a comment from a bitter old grognard that such things would "kill the hobby." Of course, they're always saying that, aren't they? Anything that saves time and energy in a game - that is, pragmatism - gets my vote. Best thing about these maps is that they do have that hand-drawn look. I'm not a fan of those random fractal world generators. They look like satellite images. Cool for Classic Traveller...not so much for fantasy.
