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
- 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
