Default Map Generators?

Anyone know any good fantasy map generators? I'm playing around with this one, but I was wondering if anyone has any better ones? I just want a nice little fantasy-like map like you might find in the beginning of all those...well, fantasy novels. I have no problem making locations and such, but the map itself, well I want a generator.

So, anyone have any they like to use?

You can try the Greenfish map generator. It can't really do entire planets, and the last time I experimented with it I wasn't even able to get it to create a single, isolated continent surrounded by water as opposed to something with land running off the edge of the map (and I've also had no luck with randomly generated rivers, but then donjon can't do that either iirc), but if you want something that's going to focus on just part of a landmass then it should work. Looks a little nicer out of the box than the donjon generators, and also lets you randomly sprinkle town/city names around the map.

You could also try something like AutoREALM. I don't think it can really do random generation, but you could always just randomly drag lines around on the canvas until you get something you like, then flesh it out with the rest of AutoREALM's tools.
