RPG Makers and Engines

RPG Makers mostly feature toolkits to build your RPG world, the things within and the story. Most try to be easy to use while still versatile. RPG engines might be less versatile and focus on a specific type of game, but they can also be more versatile, requirering additional progamming to be done.
