Do keep in mind though, that such an old java version presents a serious security risk to your computer.

Is there anything newer than HeroScribe when it comes to just drag and drop HQ map creation which would be less of a risk?

The source code is delivered with Heroscribe. It would just need one of us with Java knowledge to repack it for modern java.

Forgot to follow-up on this, but I did get HeroScribe working finally. Neat stuff. Thanks for everyone who helped! I was wondering how people created those fancy looking quest maps, but it sounds like you just take a screen cap of heroscribe (in high res?) and combine it with a blank page in photoshop and add some text, and maybe a few graphics for the background. Just wondered if anybody had a good lucking clean template for that. So far I've just been messing around with the remade version of the Adventure Design Kit. It comes out a little blurry/pixelated though.

You should use the export command, not grab a screenshot.

There are various templates here on the inn. There is a Tools topic somewhere.

I believe Count Mohawk made this Photoshop template. There are these templates for the Mac program called Pages that I used when I converted all of the archived quests. Those are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head.
