Moonpool Vault


Water drips from the ceiling in a steady rhythm. Water refracts torchlight, illuminating the depths of the pools with reflected torchlight.

Stone looms overhead, like so many thousands of tons of cold earth, ready to crush the meager life from frail bodies. The stone is wet, in some places the footing treacherous as the tunnel opens into a vast chamber. The chamber is dank, water forming pools in places, the stone forming islands in the depths. An underground grotto.

The light from the torch is refracted by the silicate compounds in the submerged stone, illuminating the depths of the pools with a faint golden radiance. The light seems to brow brighter in the deeper pools, almost as it the light itself was forming into a pool. The shallow pools are the darkest, with only a faint glow about them.

It is short, and it is just a bit of decoration. A little odd, nothing magical and no lurking monsters. No there is 1 submission in the Dungeon - rooms/halls section.

An extra .5 for filling in a gap.

Most of the room entries have be co-opted into the traps, as the rooms are basically traps. Flavor text is a perfectly good things to do, and needed in dungeons.

More like a candidate for the idea thread if you ask me. Like all your ideas it has lots of potential.

this is all the inspiration I need for the "gray cells" to take over and make up the rest!

This is an idea that would be good filler for a dungeon, or if your players
are paranoid weirdos who think every room has a huge dragon hiding in the shadows.:)

The Forest of Flesh

       By: Kid Cannibal

The party has found the source of the strange creatures roaming the countryside. The rift in this reality glows with a silver hue, rippling with the wind but never moving. They step through and are immediately assaulted with the scent of rotting meat, some have to muster all their strength not to vomit. Strange cries similar to the beasts the party had faced before can be heard in the distance. Looking around, they see they are in a forest of grey and red rather than the normal brown and green. The trees are sticky to the touch and writhe, perhaps to get away or perhaps as a warning.

The deeper the party goes, the more the forest seems to slither and move underfoot. The cries get closer and more numerous. Creatures lurk in the shadows, all the same color of their surroundings. Whatever the party came in here for, they had better do it fast.

The forest of flesh is waking up, and it is so very hungry.
