One Page Dungeon Compendium: 2016 Edition


More than sixty “one page dungeons” are contained within the compendium ranging from classic fantasy dungeons and wilderness hex crawls to horror-intrigue and dismantled star ships.

The dungeons/ adventures were produced by members of the gaming community as entries in the 2016 One Page Dungeon Contest, and are licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 license.

By design, the dungeons are fairly system neutral to facilitate their use with your favorite rules system.

The 2016 edition of the One Page Dungeon Compendium is bookmarked, and the orientation of entries (portrait/ landscape) has been preserved within the PDF.

Overall, thumbs up. The price is nice, too.

These dungeons, graphically, come in a variety of styles. Fonts are sometimes literal (though clearly) printed handwriting. Maps are sometimes on grids, sometimes hexcrawls, sometimes side views (e.g., Ben Gibson's "The Outsider's Son") and sometimes drawn without grids. The descriptions are the length to fit into the margins. One dungeon is a wizard's lab, another an abandoned city and interspersed are traditional dungeon crawls. One dungeon lacks a map, purely theatre of the mind.

To be clear, the formatting and page layout varies from page-to-page. This is because the editor received these as is, and had to incorporate them into one document without the budget for someone to standardize these. Furthermore, doing so would have removed the whimsical feel. I really enjoy seeing the different styles the various GMs used when creating these.

If you want fully-formed and fleshed-out adventures with long story arcs, look...See more

I'm disappointed that you've gone to a flat price on this rather than "pay what you want."

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
