A Sample Dungeon

In 1982 while sitting in math class the kid who sat in front of me brought in this strange book called the "Dungeon Masters Guide". Since I'd rather draw than do math the art on the cover caught my eye and I asked to look at it. In it was the first dungeon map I ever saw - and it filled my imagination with wonder. The book only had a tantalizing tidbit of info about what was in the dungeon, the best part was that the rest was up to me to fill. I thought it might be a fun exercise to try and flesh it out using the Swords and Wizardry rules.


  1. I keyed the rest of this dungeon back in the day (as did, I'm sure nearly everyone else) but my take is apparently lost to the sands of time.

    So probably time for a new take.

  2. Ah, where the corpse in the underground river holds a scroll-case and the poor little gnome gets eaten by a ghoul.
