One-Page Dungeon Contest

One of my favorite events and the one that really cinched me into the OSR is the One-Page Dungeon contest.  In past years it was run by +Alex Schroeder, but this year it is being run by +Random Wizard.  It looks like he's gathered a stellar cast of judges that include +Ernie Gygax, +Steven Winter+Brendan S, +Martin Thomas and a fifth mystery judge.

Each year this contest displays how many talented folks there are interested in this hobby.  The maps and adventures that come out of the simple one-page dungeon format is amazing.  And of course, they are free to download, use for your adventures or plunder for ideas. 

Last year I didn't participate.  This year I'll get in an entry.  Although some of the entries I've seen already are very, very cool.  Lots of competition. 

Here is a link to the rules to the On-Page Dungeon contest.  They are keeping submissions open until the 30th of April.  So you have a little time to procrastinate.  And like every year, there are some great prizes to snag if you win. 

Time for work, but I'm going to plot my victory dungeon.  Oh yes, the prize will be mine.  Muhahaha.


  1. The problem I have is I can't shut-up with the dungeon description. They are like potato-chips. Who can stop at just one?

    Great stuff in this competition.

    1. Ha, I'm not a huge fan of potato chips so I guess I should be safe. I hope to get a good idea sometime soon. Right now I am not coming up with anything.

  2. I should mention that the fifth judge is going to be Delta (of the Delta's D&D Hotspot blog). He was not the original mystery judge but he got back to me a little late and I think he would be a great judge. I also don't want to overrun the contest with judges so will probably keep it to 5 judges.

  3. Just sent mine. :)

    That was fun! I need to work on more of those.

  4. I plan on entering for the first time this year myself. Look forward to seeing your entry, and best of luck!
