Check out the V2 Ruin Index

Ruin Dogs is a Dungeons & Dragons campaign setting that my friends and I came up with. The heroes are ruin dogs, young adventurers who are forced by a powerful wizard to explore dangerous dungeons and recover mysterious artifacts.

As a companion piece to this campaign, I wrote a ruin generator that will create dungeons for the heroes to explore. It’s primarily text based and has the following features.

  • Varied ruin settings and circumstances, along with villains

Acmu Ellfaii is located in a crystal city. Some rooms of it are flooded. A battle between raiders is happening outside. It is occupied by Thri-Kreens. Granville Wadsworth The Mean, a Mind Flayer Arcanist is here. The Thri-Kreens are the slaves of Granville Wadsworth The Mean. He is founding a new religion.


  • Monsters and encounter generation

The floor is glossy. There are six Harpies here. The Harpies are performing a ritual. If not interrupted, a powerful monster will be summoned.


  • Room generation, dungeon layout, and mapping

Dungeon Map

  • Artifact generation

Adaeiula is a powerful artifact in the shape of a soft cube. Fire flows near it. When held it levitates surrounding objects.


  • Random inscriptions and poems

O! the memory of you is sadistic
yet never realistic
experimental and mobile
cruelty is noble


Here’s the code for the generator.

This is my freezeword library, which I use for text generation.
