For quick an easy, I like roll20.net

The basic level is free (I think it still is) and allows drag and drop from the web.

WARNING:
MapForge has finally been released and I now believe it was a scam. It is nothing like advertised even after being way over funded. Useless and non-functional. I hope no one else invested in them. If you did I am sorry. If you did BECAUSE I vouched for it, I WILL PAY YOU BACK from my own pocket. Message Me.

I was following the project loosely, played around with some of the beta downloads, but it seemed pretty slow and clunky. Figured it was a ways away from actual release.

That's sad news.

It is out of Beta and still sad. They were way over funded and then did another campaign with a different service - red flag right there. Too many issues to mention and I was really hopeful.

I looked at D20Pro and RPTools - they do way more than I want and the learning curve is too steep. I am currently looking at Dungeon Painter (Steam) so we will see.

I've been playing around with Dungeon Painter's free tool on Pyromancer's site. It's very basic, but seems to get the job done-ish for now. Let me know if you try out their paid one Dig, and how it works out for ya.

As a note, for anyone looking for mapping software, as of this post Profantasy is offering their stuff on Humblebundle. You can get like, $300 worth of their software for $30 or so.

I just wanted to point out that my first read of the name Profantasy came out Profanity. But if it's good it shouldn't matter what you call it
