How did you find us in the dungeon?

Lazy table for dungeon drop insHoping I have not done this already....
I looked but it gets harder to find my old stuff for some reason.
Based on a post by Dyson about introducing players into game swiftly.
This one is for meeting the party in a dungeon.
Whole party could start like this if you wanna skip the tavern trope.
Might do a rural one...

Fed up trying to finish my sea beast folk thing after losing two whole races somehow....
Before i could delete it lots of ppl had linked it but it remains unfinished...
Like my mutant book....
It's stopped me doing new stuff so screw that...
