30 Minute Dungeons Are Back!

That's right, its the moment at most 2 people have been waiting for, I am gonna start back up my 30 minute dungeon writing challenge. Every day (or at least almost every day), I will sit down for 30 minutes and write 10 rooms/encounters for a short mini dungeon.

Just to recap, here are my general guidelines for what I make when writing one of these dungeons:

A Hook
General Background
3 Combat Encounters
3 "Empty" Rooms
2 Traps
1 Weird Thing To Experiment With
Some Treasure
A Magic Item

No maps are generally included with this, as it is a writing challenge and not a cartography challenge, but I might go back and make some.

I encourage anyone who feels stuck in a rut and doesn't know what to post to take up this challenge as well! At the very least you'll get some semi-usable encounters out of it which you can steal and put in other dungeons.

And, like last time, if you have any requests for dungeons you would like to see, PLEASE comment them down below, and I'll try my best to write them up!


  1. I would like night goblins and trolls!

  2. a Peasant Hero and some varlet who wants to frame him for a crime.

  3. An old witch's house, built on the edge of a cliff overlooking a cliffside beach. She's lived unnaturally love waiting for her man to return. ..and he just happens to look like one of the party members.

  4. Doing this! I'll post it up on when i'm done. Hopefully today.

  5. done:

  6. Sweet! I might try this at breakfast or lunch break tomorrow.

    Also: can I use your Old School Fantasy Gayming logo in my sidebar?

    1. Nice! And absolutely! When I have the time I'm going to try and make a better one, but for sure, feel free to use it!
