Simple Adventure Builder

Yesterday, my son foundered badly as a GM. He had no idea how to describe what was in a room, or come up with a role-playing based encounter other than the same wandering peddler character he has been using on and off for months.

To give him a hand, I built a series of random tables that can be used to build a cool five-room dungeon on the fly or with only a few minutes of prep. He intends to use it for Tiny Dungeon 2e, but it is completely system-neutral.

Want a quick and dirty set of dice tables for designing something short and sweet? Simple enough for a little kid to use? Give it a try and let me know what you think!

So far, the best creations have been a model castle in a fish tank where a princess has hidden herself away to scheme against her father guarded by magic squid and illusions, and a dungeon where a witch is guarded by goblin servants which is lit by shining bugs and has an entrance to a sea cave with a shipwreck below.


  1. Thanks for this! Just started doing some TD2E adventures with my 10-year-old, and enjoy seeing the creativity others have poured into these types of games. Will definitely give this generator a try.
