any good RPG editors besides BoE and BoA?

Recommended Posts

Two things I really like about Blades of Exile are its combat system and the ability to create a game world with lots of meaningful content. However, the arbitrary limits on the number of items and NPCs kind of gets in the way of creating a truly epic scenario. The open source version promises to change this, but it looks like it'll be quite a while before it fully supports unlimited items and characters (or at least a very large number of them).


So I'm wondering: are there any other good RPG editors out there?


The things I'm looking for (with the more important factors in bold) are:


* Open source if possible

* The ability to make standalone games (executables) is a plus

* Scripting

* Support for unlimited items and NPCs (although an engine with a very large cap will do)

* A graphics library

* A low learning curve is also a plus


Thanks in advance!

Not really suited for RPGs, but you can get Multimedia Fusion 2 for basically free today via Humble Bundle: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly (only for the next 24 hours!)

It usually costs quite a lot, so it's a good deal.


I personally prefer OHRRPGCE but I guess that does neither have a graphics library nor a very high limit on items (I think you can create 255 different ones?).


There is a free version of RPG Maker Ace I think.



Edit: Actually you can create games like Avernum with MMF2. For example this game was made with it: http://store.steampowered.com/app/252210
