Thanks for all the Dungeons! We need more Dungeons!

It's hard for me to admit this, but I'm running out of dungeon ideas. I just finished three Gamma World dungeons and I've got nothing left.

So please send me your dungeon ideas! I'll take themes, words, geographical features; anything you've got! Post them in the comments.

Also, one random person from the comments will receive the original copy of The Meteoric Shrine of Kintok-Glau mailed to them in a simple matte frame.

Lily-pad dungeon. Between-the-drywall dungeon. Mortuary dungeon. Mall dungeon. Gerbil run dungeon. Construction-scaffolding dungeon. Free-fall dungeon. A dungeon you have to change sizes repeatedly to navigate. A dungeon with rooms connected in time rather than space. Summer getaway dungeon. A dungeon suspended from trees. The dungeon under a theme park. Anthill dungeon. Skull dungeon!

I have been having a great time sharing the dungeons with my kids. It has given me the idea to draw funny things on the plastic spoons that they take in their lunches. Now I'm writing small programs in BASIC for them to figure out. What fun!

Some ideas:
Cereal box dungeon
Milk carton dungeon (Can you see what I'm doing?)

Meteorite dungeon hurtling through space

Kid sneaker dungeon

Abandoned hard drive dungeon

hollow stone in a fireplace dungeon

St. Bernard dog barrel dungeon

Beneath the Graveyard lives the Bone-Collecting Troll!

The giant cacti of the Garlach desert are often hollowed out by the desert tribes for housing. But when they leave, the monsters move in.

Check some of the sandbox stuff on my blog - I do many dungeon descriptions without actually fleshing the dungeon out. Maybe something there would spark your imagination. Just look for the tag "sandbox".

Thanks everyone! You are awesome. This will provide many months more dungeons. :)

Also, soon I'll roll a die and someone will get a free dungeon. Woot!

How about an inverse dungeon: a village mapped from the point of view of raiding monsters? You could really do a whole theme with that.

And the winner of the challenge is David! David, send me an email at and I'll send your dungeon on to you!
