Two Dungeons: Lair of the Old Sorceror and The Ancient Winery

The following two Dungeons are proof-of-concepts of a dungeon creation system I have been fine tuning for the better part of a month. The system will be uploaded following it's third round of play-testing in likely 2 weeks or so.

Lair of the Old Sorceror is a 20 room dungeon of a 1 floor and would make for a good first dungeon for players new to OSR.

The Ancient Winery is a 60 room, 3 floor dungeon with factions, emergent paths, and one-way teleporters. It would be more appropriate for players who have experience with OSR.

Both dungeons have been play-tested and contain appropriate amounts of treasure for OSR delves. Further, each has been edited to facilitate use at the game-table by @Dm_shugars, he welcomes more work. Please use these at your own tables and let me know how it goes.


  1. Cool. Wizards in your world really need to learn how to work alone though. The chances of getting killed by an employee are 100%.

  2. At first glance they seem good. I’ve recently started a new game - Into the Odd. So I’ll be considering these for that, as this’ll be a ‘first try’ of the systems and if players and I like it it may either continue, or restart with fresh characters.

    BUT: would prefer a font that doesn’t look so much like MS-DOS or whatever. I’ve had my fill of such primitive crap. Trying to read screens of output at 2am cured me of any charm such fonts may have had.

    1. I can send you the raw text if you would like.

    2. I actually really like the aesthetic, but to each their own.

  3. Looking forward to seeing the dungeon creation system!
