Dungeons are Forever

This dungeon is personal!

With a party camped on a mega dungeon doorstep (or local town) game its nice to have a reason for heroes to be brought into a tavern near the dungeon. So this gives people a convenient excuse to be near the labyrinth and out to destroy the it, one trap and monster at a time. Use for rival adventurers and recruits too.
