At last, the culmination of years of old school dungeon design ideas, at your fingertips …

 

Important Note: This is a spreadsheet program, with a user’s manual. This utility is designed to work with a desktop computer, with Microsoft Excel installed and also a word processor (allowing you to paste data output into an easily printable format). If you are using a non-desktop system such as a phone or tablet, you may become frustrated by your inability to use this tool to 100% of its intended functionality. Compatibility with other spreadsheet programs is unfortunately not guaranteed. Please purchase this product only if you have a system that can handle the formatted data and generators in a manner that will be helpful to you. These systems have been specifically designed to fit the intended format. Thank you for your understanding.

 

If you love random tables but hate page flipping and dice rolling, the Oldskull Dungeon Tools are for you. This utility set features tens of thousands of random table results, pulled from the following 8 best-selling Castle Oldskull books:

  • The Classic Dungeon Design Guide, Books 1, 2 & 3 (CDDG1-3)
  • The Oldskull Dungeon Bestiary (ODB1)
  • The Book of Dungeon Traps (BDT1)
  • 1,000 Rooms of Chaos, Books 1 & 2 (ROC1-2)
  • 333 Realms of Entropy (ROE1)
  • (With a few Easter eggs included from other books as well.)

 

Here you will find fully automated randomizers for over 100 variables, including:

  • Adventure names
  • Unique benefactors / quest givers
  • Quest and scenario types, with twists
  • City-to-dungeon modes of travel and wilderness encounters
  • Wilderness region themes (Realms of Entropy)
  • Dungeon names and level themes
  • Surface dungeon, castle, and ruin types (surrounds)
  • Dungeon construction and builder race ideas
  • Minor artifacts (Shards of Chaos)
  • Over 2,000 unique room themes (Rooms of Chaos)
  • A full random room generator, with over 1,000 detailed room types
  • Over 1,000 descriptor and adjective themes for further differentiation
  • Details on dungeon light, air currents, lifeforms, odors, and sounds
  • Furnishings and dungeon dressing
  • Unexpected features, cave features, rogue hideout features, and arcane features
  • Very large random systems for containers, pools, and shrines
  • Dead body and implement of torture generators
  • Door, corridor, stairway, and magical gateway creators
  • Special encounter types for barracks (minions), quarters (NPCs), prisoners, and ideas for Lovecraftian Abominations
  • Over 4,000 random monster lairs, including paired encounters (e.g., dark elves and giant spiders), with more to come
  • Hundreds of dungeon trap ideas, tiered by difficulty level
  • And more, with more content to come!

 

To make the very most of this utility, you might want to own the 8 books mentioned above, but I’ve included enough information in the accompanying user’s manual that you should also be able to figure things out on your own. (Arising questions would be most fully answered by the 2,000+ pages of referenced books, as cited in this utility’s user manual.) Additional tool sets for the Game World Generator, Oldskull Adventure Generator, etc. will be programmed if this initial dungeon-themed offering is well received.

Please note that this is not a traditional Castle Oldskull e-book. It is a spreadsheet software utility for rapid random generation, which has been written due to dozens of requests for quicker and more integrated result creation using the existing Castle Oldskull systems. If you do not yet have a basic level of proficiency in Microsoft Excel use and word processing, this product might frustrate you … but the learning curve can be overcome. These tools have been requested by power users and have been scripted for that intended audience.

I hope you enjoy the provided tools … they are very extensive!

Another fine product from Kent David Kelly and Wonderland Imprints, Only the finest works of fantasy.

I just wanted to say that I was thrilled to find this item. I have almost all of Mr Kelly's Castle Oldskull books and truly treasure them. I was considering creating an XLS just like this to save time. I think being able to generate a few ideas on the [...]

Format
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.
