Dungeon Creation/Generation

Post Tue Feb 18, 2014 5:00 pm

Labryinth Lord has rules and tables for dungeon room generation and I thought that was pretty cool. How hard would it be to make some tables of dungeon generation for Basic Fantasy? Is anyone interested?

Probably not that hard to make, and I know I'd enjoy them.

I've wanted to write/contribute to a GM-specific resource, perhaps to complement the Beginners Guide. A friendly suggestive text on running a game, building an adventure/dungeon/campaign/world, etc.

Those pages are good and I would use it along side the wandering monster table to stock the dungeon. However I was thinking something a little bit more elaborate like how one can generate magic items.


I think a GM supplement would be great. I was personally thinking about supplement solely based on dungeon generation. I don't know if that is too much like AD&D because of my want of multiple tables but I think it would help keep the game session fresh and different.

Its a mystery how no one has created a DM supplement yet because it keeps getting talked about off and on.

I wouldn't want it solely based on dungeon generation, but it would be a major part/chapter. And I would want tables all over the freaking place. :D

As a huge fan of both 2E's Catacomb and Campaign Guide, along with Pathfinder's Gamemastery Guide, I would absolutely like to participate in the creation of something similar for BFRPG. Perhaps we can start coming up with a rough outline for all the items we'd like to see in it?

The existing treasure tables don't work for you?

From what I've seen the tables are fine. However I wish, and soon plan, to create a supplement for creating dungeons. All the tables brought together for a step by step process on creation and filling of dungeons for the busy Game Master.

If someone built a program or app that did that for BFRPG it would be awesome.
