Determining the Dungeon Theme

As always, the principle here is to start with something you already know about the Dungeon.

If you already know the Dungeon Type, use the first table below.

If you already know a Monster Type, use the second table.

If you know Multiple Monster Types, or the Dungeon Theme and a Monster Type, you have your choice of tables.

If you really don’t know anything at all about the Dungeon, then use the Completely Random Dungeon Theme Table.

 

If you already know the Dungeon Type, roll here to determine the Dungeon Theme.
Roll 1d and refer to the appropriate Dungeon Type.  (Need a die roller?)
