The Compiled List of One Page Dungeon Entries

I know that many of you have clamored to see all the entries for the awesomely popular One-Page Dungeon Contest that concluded last week. However, before we can even think of publishing them (and more importantly how and how many), we need to go through each and every entry and judge them.

However, I thought that some would find it interesting to see a list of participants and the name of their entry.

So here it is! A list of all 112 contest entries!

A note to participants, if your name does not figure on this list, please contact me at so we can investigate.

I don’t know about you,but just reading the names of some of these dungeons gives me adventure ideas.

This contest has been beyond cool and I’m having fun judging the entries (I’ve done a few today and hope to do about 5-10 a day).  We’ll get back to you with an estimated date for the announcement of the winning entries.  Right now I want to give my fellow judges time to enjoy their memorial weekends.

Have a great week!


  1. Awesome! I’m looking forward to seeing more of these one-page dungeons! 🙂

    If anyone wants to check out The Ancient Academy, you can download it from here:

    Stuarts last blog post..Gaming on the Right Side of the Brain

  2. If you want, I can hot-link your entry in the list.

    In fact anyone who posted their dungeon online are free to do so (I’ll later provide a place where my good friend Alex is willing to host them for those who don’t have websites).

  3. Yeah – that’d be cool. Anyone who wants to share their dungeons should post a link in the comments as well. 🙂

    Stuarts last blog post..Gaming on the Right Side of the Brain

  4. That gives me the idea that maybe I should post mine too. Maybe with a higher resolution version of the map bundled with it as well. I’ll see if I have the photoshop files around…

  5. As I’ve said before on Twitter I would love to see all these one-page dungeons released. By the way, feel free to add the link to my entry:

  6. I’ve posted mine up, here.

  7. Updated! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for participating!

  8. Really cool list! Man, there are some intriguing names in there. I can’t wait for the whole bundle. What a great idea!

    Chapel of Priapus 😮

  9. My entry can now be found here, along with a D&D 4th Edition stat card for Somi, the locked lady of the library, and a decent (non-dithered) map, in a convenient 860 kb zip file.

    I’ll try to get mine up as soon as possible. Really enjoying the ones I’ve seen.

  11. MoonlapseVertigo says:

    okay, hopefully this will work this time. of the Gravegod.pdf

  12. @Greywulf: Awesome idea! Kinda reminds me of the X-Men Danger Room gone bad 😉

  13. Telecanter says:
  14. Updated! Damn, this is turning out better than I expected.

  15. @Stargazer Thanks! I ran it for my group and they had a wild time writing all sorts of bizarre things. They did themselves more damage that I ever could 😀

  16. Bummer, I left the island for vacation before turning in an entry… ah well, looking forward to seeing everyone elses works. Are you guys going to put up all the entries for d/l?

    Maybe a single 112 pg. pdf? That’d be rad. I’ve checked out a couple of the entries so far and they look really awesome.

  18. Colmarr says:

    Ok, just read one of the entries (won’t say which one so as not to prejudice the judges). Woah! That thing is suitable for publication as a full module. It’s beyond awesome as a one-page dungeon (in fact I have no idea how they managed to cram that much information in).

  19. Here is a cleaned up and branded version of my adventure.

    R. Lawrence Blakes last blog post..My One Page Dungeon

  20. Howdy. I just posted my dungeon entry “The Poseidon Adventure” so you can hotlink it:

    I agree that you should post all entries. Your condition that entries are released with a CC license means that you could do so rather easily, I’d think. I don’t know about the other entrants, but I’d also be open to granting a nonexclusive commercial license to you in order to create a printed volume of all entries through lulu or something, too.

  21. I’m just glad I managed to get an entry thrown together at the last minute. I’ve written loads in the past about how I hate dungeons and mapping in general but I think I could get used to this sort of style. Nothing too major and the maps can’t be too big.

    Now to get my thinking cap on for something that might actually win a prize if there’s ever a repeat of this competition 🙂

    Bobs last blog post..I Just Thought I’d Check In.

  22. I’m loving going through all of these.

    That said, here’s where mine is hosted (The Tomb of Daruhn Oakenshield)

  23. I put my entry up here; apologies for the late comment, it’s been a hectic few days …

  24. Good morning all! I’m floored to see such positive reception from you all. Thanks for sharing your entries.

    I’ve updated the list.

    Now I need to dive back in judging them!

  25. Let’s see…

    Arendts_old_peculiar_v2.pdf 921.9 Kb

    Here it is!


  26. If things keep up like this, we may have a ‘fan’s favorite’ award after all 🙂

  27. Okay, I’m getting in on the early sharing action.

    Maybe my out of genre submission will garner my “dungeon” a bit of attention given the highly competitive field here!

  28. The Water Temple is here:

  29. Owen Cooper says:
  30. Keep them coming! I’m sure that readers appreciate it, my stats tell me that most entries got about 50 hits each yesterday. So there’s no mistaking the huge demand for it.

    I’m sorry if I don’t comment on so and so entries, as I must remain removed from the discussion until I’m done (I’ve about 16 done so far).

    Best of luck to all! And feel free to discuss entries and start lauding kudos on your favorite ones!

  31. Mountain Lair of the Misanthropic Magus

    is here:

  32. mine’s here:
    prepare to start squinting

  33. And my meager little entry as well:

  34. I’ve been reading some other peoples’ entries, and I’ve enjoyed them all. So far, my favorites are:

    * Cry of the Gravegod – Some really original details, and a setting that evokes a world very well.

    * The Tomb of Dûrahn Oakenshield – Disciplined restraint gives this one a more realistic feel, good for a low-fantasy campaign.

    * The Horror of Leatherbury House – I’m a sucker for “Call of Cthulhu” style investigation, and this one nails the feel of the canonical starter adventure in the “Call of Cthulhu” rules.

    Some other high points: I liked the room bisected by crystal in the “Strange Loops” dungeon. “The Dweller Beneath” is a close second to the Leatherbury House in terms of horror potential, and the spheres and depressions are a nice, subtle way of directing the party to where you want them to go without railroading them. And I really liked seeing the “Shrine of the Kuo-Toa” invoked in “Water Temple.”

    I haven’t read all the entries linked above yet, but so far, every dungeon I’ve read has had something to recommend it. I’m looking forward to seeing more.

  35. My entry, The Foetid Pit Beneath the Abandoned Shrine, is available at: .



  36. Here’s the entry from Jay Vandendool. It’s located on

    Suddrys last blog post..One Page Dungeon Submission

  37. Please have a look at Valley of the Necromancer Kings. It’s worth it.

  38. There are some really good entry links above. If I HAD to choose one right now I’d say that Cry of the Gravegod really jumps out at me. Hard choice though.

  39. So, wow! I just want to give the ChattyDM a preemptive Thanks! because it’s going to take lots of patience and time to get through all of those entries.

    By the way, here’s the link to my entry via my personal blog:

    And good luck to everyone because this is already a hard decision from the one’s I’ve seen so far!!

  40. Gary S. Watkins says:

    Here is the link to my short little adventure:
    Sorry, the map is a little crude — old school, hand drawn. I’ll have to figure out how to use photoshop or gimp one of these days. Comments are always welcome!

  41. I’ve updated the list with all new links. This is becoming quite a resource!

  42. MoonlapseVertigo says:

    There’s some great stuff in here, but I’m still wishing more people would post their entries. There are some intriguing titles on there I’m curious to actually see. (like the dreaded dungeon of “Watch Your Ass!” )

  43. Here’s my One Page Dungeon, Ruined Temple of Wild Arcana:

    lol, after I read through my entry again, I realized I should have named it Ruined Academy of Wild Arcana.

  44. Toxidyne says:

    Given how good the other entries are, I’m a bit embarrased to post mine. However, here it is:

  45. There’s nothing to be embarrassed about. You made the effort to hand it in and we appreciate it.

  46. Good gravy! No one should be embarrassed by these. These are all remarkable and fun. Kudos to all.

  47. I’ve just posted my entry to my blog:

    A Rust Monster Ate My Sword: OPDC Entry

  48. Thanks Chris.

    I updated the list!

    Some King’s Kent

  51. These are some really amazing dungeons! I have almost filled a moleskine notepad with ideas based off of various entries! Everyone has presented a great entry! Kudos! And Hats off to ChattyDM for judging them all amidst everything else he’s doing! Thanks!

    Seths last blog post..In Memory of David Carradine

  52. Curious, I have done three of these and would love to have mine included in any subsequent compilation that is produced. I realize I wouldn’t be eligible for the contest, but I would just like to share my stuff with anyone. Is this possible, maybe Too-Slow-to-Compete section?

  53. @snikle: We don’t plan to publish non-contest entries. However, feel free to put them up on some file hosting site and link to them from here.
