One Page Dungeon 2016: The Quintessential Dungeon



Behold my entry into the 2016 one-page dungeon contest!

This year, rather than agonise over originality, I wanted something that evoked memories of our very first dungeons. A bar-room brawl, a slumbering dragon, oozes, a magic mouth, devious traps, and all the other beloved tropes - pure, unrefined Dungeons and Dragons.

I really hope you enjoy it!

  1. It's great to see a new post from you. Another winner I see.
    On another note, you guys wouldn't happen to have a new recipe for monster-related food items, would you? I usually get hungry when I visit this blog, ya know.
    Cheers, R

  9. Would like to run some players through this dungeon on my Twitch channel, would that be ok? Will clean up the map alittle so as to not give things away. Just want to make sure...

    1. NVM..I see the Creative Commons license note at bottom of map. I will certainly announce credit to you several times while runnning players through the dungeon.

  10. Will...

    Would you happen to have The Quintessential Dungeon map without all of the text and notes? Would love to convert this into Fantasy Grounds to run on my channel for players (if you don't mind!!). Can send you the final mod file if you's like.

  12. I'd love to print this at a large size and frame it for my games room. Is it available at a higher resolution?
