Dungeon Local 001


Dungeon Local 001 is a reverse-dungeon crawling game for 1-6 players. Unlike other fantasy games where someone outside the dungeon comes in to kill monsters and get treasure, in Dungeon Local 001 you play those monsters exploring the dungeon and making it a safe and beautiful place to live. You play as dungeon denizens like ogres who built the dungeon, dwarves who make traps, or skeletons who cleaned up all the blood.

Each player creates their own character, defined by the job they performed under the old overlord. Players take turns generating random encounters like hallways full of traps, underground lakes full of beasts, or other denizens, and then drawing them to create a map. Characters will accumulate stress as they explore the dungeon, and your characters will occasionally take breaks to recover and reminisce about your life here.

At the end of the game you’ll have a dungeon full of unique encounters and characters that you can use in any other fantasy table-top role playing game.

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.
