Anyaknor, remains of a elder ruined city

By a great glacier in a mountain the glacier once ground away a cliff exposing some of this ruined city. You can randomly roo. 24 rooms here  for chambers in elder ruins. Use as a dungeon or say the dimensional properties are in full effect and each ten minutes what is through the doorway changes to a new one rolled on d100 table. After ten minutes or one turn the door blinks, to having a different room on the other side of the portal. Being separated in such a dimensional maze is dangerous.

Hoping on doing a void creature bestiary
Noticed lots of basic dnd monsters were nightmare and darkness related and they had a school of illusions that could access nightmare world. X4 & X5 module monsters for example.

Im using the Crawling Chaos book  here lots.
-Great items and monsters. Id use this book for relics mentioned in chambers.

  1. Sorry, that this is my first comment on your blog, which I visit regularly. But when I open it with firefox I have the problem that there is a screens worth of empty black space between the picture and the text.

    1. presuming this is real and not some spammy thing that i get lots of comments like this.....firefox i gaveup a long time ago. i do get inconsistent gaps sometimes. I cant really do much about this blogger does lots of strange things.

    2. played with it and worse on my end
      was a 2 line gap now bigger so i dunno sorry

    3. No, I'm not a spam bot. (Or maybe I am one with an very elaborate AI thats simulates a human experience?)

      Okay, sometimes such things can't be helped. Just wanted to tell you about it, in case you did not know.

    4. phew i was right your human
      cheers for comment as i said i had a look and made it worse - its kind of crap blogger does constantly like remove spaces so i go back to find line spacing gone and i have to manually put back in. Thanks for letting me know and reading!
