I'm so glad you asked!

Quick Description: 

This is a collection of hand-drawn fantasy mini dungeon maps that GMs can drop right into their gameplay, regardless of system. In addition to the main maps, each room has been digitally rendered using a 5' X 5' scale. Each room can then be printed out and used as a game mat (for use with standard 28mm - 30mm miniatures, not included). 

Detailed Description:

This Deluxe Edition of Dungeon in a Day contains:

  • 319 pages
  • 10 BLANK mini-maps
  • 10 Fully Customizable charts to dress out every room
  • 99 PRINTABLE ROOM MAPS for your adventurers to explore! 
  • Original fantasy artwork in the old-school style 
  • Constructed on a crisp 5' X 5' grid for use with standard minis


[Deluxe Edition: One of 99 rooms! Each printable as a game mat. PDF free with print version!]


Q: So, what do I do with it? 

A: In a word... ANYTHING! 

The idea for this book came to me when I realized how much I enjoy drawing tiny dungeons, just a few rooms that an adventure party can go through in a few hours. But wouldn't it be cool if the GM could totally customize every room to fit their campaign? 

Q: What system is it for? 

A: ANY fantasy system. Think of this book as a curated collection of simple "one-off" encounters you can use to enhance your existing gameplay.

Q: Some maps are in pieces. How do I put them together? 

A: Each room uses the same 5' X 5' grid, equalling squares that standard (28mm - 30mm) minis can be placed in. Just print each piece and fold or cut sheets to align. 

Q: But they're... blank! 

A: Yep! And all ready for you to fully customize. With the HARDCOVER version of this book (coming soon!) you'll be able to dress up all your rooms - traps, secret doors, loot sashes, hidden monsters and all - and then use the PDF (FREE wih your hardcover purchase) to print out "line of sight" rooms for your adventurers to slowly discover!

Hey Ted, you might consider dropping the gridlines about 70% opacity, as black lines over run the whole visual (and you need to have them so visible to use them.) Otherwise, great product!

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.
