One-Page Dungeon: The Mad Artificer’s Invention

Time to share my entry for the 2019 One Page Dungeon Contest! For those not familiar with this contest, it’s pretty great: The challenge is to write a self-contained one-shot adventure that fits on a single sheet of paper.

It looks like there were over 100 entries this year. Now we’re all eagerly awaiting the release of the full compendium and the winners! Without further ado, here’s my page…

I went all in this year for the tricky puzzle mechanic of the Alchemical Gems and machines. I haven’t gotten to playtest this yet, but I’m curious to see how many times the party would accidentally build a new monster by combining the wrong gems.

If you get the chance to try this adventure out, tweet to us @RogueHexagon and tell us what you think!
