Create your own one-page random dungeon generation tables with customized theme, encounters, and results.
Random dungeon generation systems have been a part of roleplaying games since their birth in the 1970s; these tools for creating randomized settings and encounters have found renewed popularity with the recent resurgence of dungeon-delving in the “Old School Renaissance” movement and the pursuit of solitaire gaming.
Use with any dungeon-delving game system!
Schweig’s Themed Dungeon Generator system provides a form outline for customizing a random delve built around a general theme – such as a goblin lair, sorcerer’s basement, ancient ruin, minotaur’s labyrinth, frog-god temple – easily incorporated into most fantasy roleplaying games and even other genres.
A form and some basic instructions offer guidance in choosing die ranges for corridors, chambers, stocking potential traps and exceptional treasures, and preparing a menu of escalating encounters. Fill out the form in PDF and print to paper or PDF; or just print out the blank form and fill it out by hand. Once complete it’s ready for generating a room-by-room dungeon for on-the-fly group play or an unscripted solitaire delve.
