Starting Points

Unchartered wilderness is the perfect place for a map to be useful. Or for a group to want to make a map. As wilderness is usually beyond the "civilised" lands, the maps available might show old ruins and fallen kingdoms.

There are also other strategies for using the maps, such as survival expeditions and old school hexcrawls.

There are related Wilderness Guides for Fantasy Wilds Generators and Fantasy Wilderness PDFs & Books.

Regular Wilderness Maps

Starting with a hex-based template, HexTML is a hex-based map generator with a "generate" option (under the "Map settings" cog). That can then me edited as you wish.

Then Hexroll is another Hex-based wilderness area which creates an entire mapped campaign area. With notes, settlements, dungeons and factions for each hex using dnd creatures.

If you would like a small settlement Kassoon has a Hamlet Map generator which has options to customise it for supporters.

For smaller maps Mapgen4 from Red Blog Games has lots of filters and you can paint terrain types across the map. The site also has many resources for procedural map creation.
