The One-Page Dungeon kickstarter is rolling along. Thank you to everyone for your support! I am very grateful for your interest in my project!
I want to take a minute to write about the process of converting these dungeons from ink in a cheap journal to digital pages fit to print. Specifically, I want to highlight how the process of utilizing digital layout is expanding the content on offer from the dungeons.
If you’ve been following the kickstarter, then you may be aware that I’ve sworn off stretch goals for this campaign. Because I am not creating more work for myself, I have the luxury of being able to invest more creative time into the product that you’ve backed.
I’ve shown two digital layout preview dungeons on the kickstarter. (Check it out here!)
In this blog post, we will take a look at the material as original scanned and the way the new digital layout dungeons differ from their original source.
First, here is “Current Events” as it appears on the original page:
And here is “Current Events” in its digital layout (excuse the typos they will be corrected).
Now, here is the original “Tunnel Out of Time.”
And here is the updated version. (Again, typos…)
I won’t promise that every single dungeon will be expanded with tables, options, details, and items, but I will say that as I continue to edit and refine the dungeon layout, I am finding more and more ways to expand upon the original ideas.
So, in short, the booklet that will be published will feature dungeons with more robust options and detail than their original iterations. I am excited to improve upon the ideas in a way that expands the dungeons’ playability, narrative, and potential for fun.
I believe that over-defining or over-explaining almost any setting or prompt in a Table Top RPG effectively limits the way folks can engage with that setting or prompt. I am guarding myself from adding too much specificity and instead am focusing on offering tools that aid the imagination.
Thanks again for your interest in my collection of small dungeons! I can’t wait to get this thing into your hands and onto your table!
