Dungeon 23 – Planning and Preparation

Dungeon 23 – Planning and Preparation

Welcome, Game Masters!

These are some of my initial thoughts on the planning, execution, and final goal of the year-long #Dungeon23 writing exercise. The final goal, of course, is to publish a big, fat dungeon! More than that, this project is designed to keep me focused on developing the biggest project I’ve been working on over the past year:

Wilderness – Dungeon – Domain Synthesis!

Dungeon – Wilderness – Domain Synthesis is the term I have come upon to describe this system of adventure design. The dungeon does not exist in a vacuum. For the purposes of this game aid the Dungeon will be considered a living, if not precisely sentient, component of the Campaign Setting.

The Dungeon is not only living, but instinctively aware of intrusion by creatures or beings from the world above. It is wholly inimical to such intruders and will take steps, through the inhabitants or through the construction of traps and mazes, to dispose of them.

Check out the itchio page! Various bits and pieces of the #Dungeon23 Project will be posted there, starting with the Surface Encounters.
