  1. You could run an entire Monsters! Monsters! campaign using this as a mission generator.

    1. I did play dungeon keeper pc game but it wasnt dnd. But ideas in it cute. I played a game where we go trapped in the dungeon and learned about the secret levels where monsters healed and had costume changes and secret passages everywhere and healing sugar crystal potions in their mouths. We got to beat up a paladin and some adventurers. Whole dungeon was a scam for wizards to watch.Ive done similar stuff but this was more dungeon boss than my way


I love and welcome feedback but not spambots
Good feedback and suggestions inspire me to write more
