I am currently looking for a cartographer program to create my own RPG realm using some of the Birthright concepts for a combination of story and game that I plan on working with. I have heard someone mention to me about Campaign Cartographer and I have seen some of its capability though online it looks like you need a whole pack of things that run about $600 while it's on sale.

Does anyone have any better suggestions? I might just end up hiring someone to do the artwork/geography for me though I have a basic concept of what I want to work with and would prefer to do the work myself if I can find a program.
