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!

One-Page Dungeon: The Lair of the Pun Usher

It’s one-page dungeon season! Once again, I will be entering the One Page Dungeon Contest. The rules are simple: Design a system-neutral RPG adventure that fits on a single sheet of paper. Then all the creators in the contest have a compendium of one-shots to run for the year to come!

I’ll post my entry for this year when it’s done, but in the meantime, here is my entry from the 2018 contest (Right click to save and print)!

Groan-inducing indeed. The light-hearted villain actually shares his name with a comic villain that I wrote about with friends back in college.

This one didn’t make the winners’ circle last year, but it was still a blast to write and see what everyone else came up with. The full compendium is now available here!
