Battlemap Generator
I've been in several games (and run a few) where the GM uses text maps to visualize battles. I've found that keeping these maps in text files or whatnot and them manually updating them was a bit of a pain.  So, I wrote a quick Battlemap Generator web app for making these RPoL maps.  It saves any maps you make to your browser's local storage so you can retrieve them.  Feel free to use it, if you think it'll be useful to you.  It's completely free.

I know it couldn’t have been quick to get something like this thrown together .. but now my maps will be!  Thanks.

You're welcome. I admit to having done this for myself but it seemed silly to hog it all.

If you're willing, you might send a message to Skald in the Heaven forum, and he could add the link to the resources available there.  :-)

HOLY HANNAH, thank you SO very much for this!!

I've been using MSPaint to hack and chop together battle maps for encounters, and it's ... well, it's a struggle to get it to work correctly.

I'll be using this, from now on, to track character positions in the future!!
