You may need to update that first post; I found that rough draft program... It might not be the same one, but the title is the same.

Hmm, the link in stargate's post shows up as "http://www.thecbg.org/e107_plugins/forum/rough draft" which is 404 of course.

The same is true of the update in the first post.

Could there be a typo here?

Mind Mapping software is something you might want to try. I use this one:  FreeMind. This piece of software might not have occurred to anyone, but I've found it to be very helpful. It's main use is in laying out ideas, plots, and story arcs in a very convenient and logical way. Side plots and small stories can be tracked also. Pretty good in my opinion.

Abulafia, aka random-generator.com has moved (to random-generator.com).

Some especially useful pages: Tavern, nations, and farmsteads.
Also, many name generators.

The site requires (free) registration due to recent spamming.

didn't see this on here, though I've seen it mentioned a few times.  Oops, there it is right above.  Shows what I get for trying to read these damn threads from the beginning.
Still,
Useful for artistically impaired as well as those whose maps get so damn old they start to fall apart...not like i'd know or anything.
http://www.gryc.ws/autorealm.htm

Autorealm is a freebie, and a decent one.  make a map pn it, save it as a jpg or something, and you can use a graphics program to really make it look nice.

I apologize in advance if I am going over ground well trodden inadvertantly.
