Very awesome list, Michelle!

I would add http://rptools.net/ as a Java based mapping program will run on MacOSX as well.  Unfortunately Campaign Cartographer is Windows only but can run under Windows emulation if you know how to do that sort of thing.

Thanks!  I thought it might come in handy.  I'm still adding to it, but I think I'm done for tonight.  I'll add more tomorrow including RPTools and let me know if you have any more suggestions.   tongue

Added your link and a few others I found.  Let me know if you have anything to add and we can have one giant list.  Haven't actually gotten to read everything on these pages though there are a few I'm looking forward to getting into.
