100 Oddities for a Dungeon


Welcome to “100 Oddities for a Dungeon,” the sixteenth entry in Skirmisher Publishing’s popular and bestselling line of system-free sourcebooks designed to make any areas or encounters taking place in them more fun and interesting! 

This supplement is dedicated to dungeons in the classic sense of places used to confine and punish people, including prisons, jails, oubliettes, and torture chambers; as described in the works of authors like Edgar Allan Poe (e.g., The Pit and the Pendulum), Alexandre Dumas (e.g., The Man in the Iron Mask), and the Marquis de Sade (e.g., Justine); and as presented in cinematic works ranging from those of Hammer Films to the entries of the “Saw” franchise. They range from famous historic sites like the Bastille in Paris to the hidden cells maintained by a disproportionate number of villains. 

Oddities are designed to help storytellers make places in their scenarios as memorable as those that have appeared in innumerable sources like those mentioned above and to fascinate and engage characters and prompt them to ask questions like “Why is this thing here?”, “What is that for?”, or “Who would do something like this?” They are intended to aid creativity, to turn possibly bland areas or encounters into something more, and to take your imagination in directions it might not otherwise have gone. 

As with other “Oddities” volumes, all of the entries in this book can be used separately or in conjunction with one another to add evocative details to any sort of appropriate area or encounter and in any manner that suits the needs of a particular storyteller. “100 Oddities for a Dungeon” also includes a Random Prisoner Generator for when you need to quickly fill out some of the cells in your prisons.

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.
