My One Page Dungeon Entry

Hey all,

Here is my entry into the 2010 One Page Dungeon contest. It’s titled, “The House of Lost and Found” and is designed to be a map characters can find in a Lovecraftian horror game. If you haven’t heard of or entered the contest yet, there’s still time: until the end of the week, in fact. Get out there and start creating!

Looking forward to seeing your posts!

    I like the font for this. What did you use to make your map?

    Hey June,

    The fonts are Hand Test (for the finer writing inside the squares) and Note Hand or something like that for the rest of it. I made the map in GIMP (using photoshop briefly to add the bled-ink texture to the map portion).

    Thanks for looking,

    Nice! I love the way it looks, and the flavor text you used is very evocative. I would not worry too much about the format. Like the contest rules state, the concept of a one page dungeon means different things to different people. I particularly like this entry because it can be used with several genres and games. Well done! Good luck with the contest!

      Thanks! I appreciate the comments. By the way, I’ve got work but I’ll be posting my GIMP items later tonight.

    Very nice, and bonus points for not using the OPD template.

      Thanks Mike! Good to hear from you.

    Very nicely done!

    Wow, I like your entry. Very Lovecraftian indeed & it makes me want to try playing a game like that or run a game with your dungeon.

    I particularly like the border around the map, did you draw it in yourself?

      Thanks a lot, chopnstyx!

      No, I didn’t draw it; the border/page background was part of a group of free photoshop elements I found online a while ago. You can google “photoshop paper” or something similar to find them, but I don’t remember the site exactly.

    I like it! You have really managed to mix in a (Lovecraftian) short story with the map, great idea. I especially like the fact that the main villain/big monster/scary-stuff-behind-the-curtain isn’t written out – it’s really up to the referee. Good work!

    Do you happen to have this map text-free? I was thinking of using it in a play-by-forum Mafia game, and the actual room names I want to keep secret until they reach it during each Day Phase.

      Sure, I can find it. Do you want it on the paper background, or just the straight map?

  9. April 1, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    The paper background would be awesome!

      I ended up using GIMP to cut the map into smaller pieces, and also take out the text.

    So I ended up using the map in this Mafia game:


    Thanks for the inspiration and the use of your map!
