A collection of things I’ve made and put on DrvieThruRPG, all of which are free/PWYW:
This is one of the first dungeons I ever made way back in 1988, when I was a teenager. So, it’s about as Old Skoool as it gets … not in an OSR sense, but in a “I’ve made a dungeon who wants to play” kind of way. If you’re looking for understandable/sensible dungeon ecology, themes, plot, and balanced encounters etc., then you’ve signed up for the wrong adventure! It’s 1e AD&D, and I’d say for PCs at about 3/4 level. Update: an independent video review – Link
An adventure is written with AD&D (1e) in mind, but of course would suit any D&D variant. The adventure centres on the exploration of a maze-like giant ant colony located near a remote town. The document provides 3 ways in which the labyrith-like maze could be explored. Update: Playtest report – blog link
In the Heart of the Sea
In the Heart of the Sea is a procedural High Seas ‘Hex Crawl’. I made this thing for the 2019 One Page Dungeon Contest, because I figured there is a ‘need’ out there in RPG-land for a procedurally generated sea-going adventure. This is my take on it. Basically, there are three ‘game engines’ in the form of a Hex Flower. One engine drives navigation and encounters. The other two are related to weather and conditions. Each day you determine what happens using the last day’s result. So, it is sort of like a random table but with a memory.
