Dungeon23 January Collection Level 1 The Workshop

The first month on the dungeon23 challenge is done and I am super happy with the results. Each week consists of its own one page dungeon and the month as a whole has a one page dungeon that links the different sections up. I really like this layout as its super modular and easy to run even a complex dungeon. You can find the pdf version of this document on my patreon for free. If you use this adventure in one of your games let me know how it goes.

Dungeon23 Tower of Retribution

The dungeon23 challenge is a writing prompt challenge to write a dungeon room a day for all of 2023 so at the end of the challenge you have a completed mega dungeon. Its a pretty simple writing prompt to keep you focused on a small achievable goal that gives you a big result at the end. The challenge was started by Sean McCoy and this article is a pretty good write up on it.

Instead of a traditional mega dungeon with a large dungeon map I am going to try out a depth crawl like the one in Gardens of Ynn. The nice thing about depth crawls is they use a roll chart to determine location so you don't need to focus on a large complex map and can instead focus on the individual rooms. I am planning on posting a page at the end of each week with the 7 rooms I wrote for the depth crawl each week.

I have changed my mind and decided to go with my traditional one page dungeon layout for this challenge. I am going to use this opportunity to show off the nested dungeon layout I used to link smaller dungeons into a mega dungeon. I will likely make a dungeon key/table when I am done to run the dungeon as a depth crawl as well but there will be maps at least at the start.
