I'll be stocking my dungeons room-by-room here on the blog at a rate of about three rooms per week starting March 7th. I'm encouraging those reading this to do the same. At the end of this process the world will have (hopefully) several stocked dungeons based on a single, iconic map. The differences and similarities between them can be an interesting statement on the game and its participants.
I offer only some simple guidelines for this venture:
- Use any version of D&D, the clones or even another game (even genre) entirely to complete the dungeon.
- Provide as much or as little detail as you desire as you go.
- To get started add a comment to this blog saying that you're getting started and provide a link to your blog so we can all go see.
- You can join the fun at any time and take as long as you like doing it.
- Use as much or as little of the background and the few existing room descriptions associated with the map from the DMG as you like. The only requirement is that you use the above map.
- I'll be posting three rooms per week starting Monday, February 7th.
- I encourage you to not only stock the thing, but talk about your choices and dungeon-building philosophy as well. For instance, if you're using randomly generated results, talk about why. If not, also talk about why. Will it be a themed dungeon? The value in this project to me is in hearing about what a particular DM likes as well as seeing it directly applied.
- Will there be winners? Will there be prizes? Everybody is a winner but there won't be prizes.
- If you want to play but don't yet have a blog, start here.
