1,The dungeon was originally [Megadungeon origins.main] but has been forgotten by most civilized races for eons. It was rediscovered due to the recent [cataclysm]. Near the [Compass direction.8] entrance, [Random Humanoid Horde.Leader] of unusual intelligence suspects it may contain [Fantasy Assignment.Transportable] – one of particular interest – and so has dispatched [minions] into the complex. They communicate via [nonverbal].
Meanwhile, a group of [adj] [minions] who entered through a secret door to the [Compass direction.8] suspects it may contain [Fantasy Assignment.Transportable] that they value. Their leader is said to be strangely [adj] and is also a [leaderbonus] with a dangerous pet – [Weird Fantasy Monster.main] that appears to obey his/her every whim. It roams the halls seeking sustenance but is afraid of [Fantasy Adventure Locations.Worshipped]. It’s also far [better] than the typical member of its species. This group uses [dungeonspy] to spy on the other group of intruders.
(In recent weeks, the two factions have begun to [interact] in the halls.)
Unbeknownst to either side, [Weird Fantasy Monster.main] – [bossmonsterattribute] – lives deep within, inside a network of tunnels leading eventually to [Fantasy Assignment.Object] which it prizes beyond all things.
It has built traps around its lair – for example, [Traps.main] – but also [twothrufour] stranger traps, informed by its bizarre alien intelligence, which cause intruders to be destroyed by [Fantasy Adventure Locations.Worshipped]. It can avoid the traps easily because of its unique abilities.
The other factions have also made about [twothrufour] traps each, but they are cruder, since they’ve been recently and hastily thrown together.
In addition, many hazards exist, the legacy of the dungeon’s original inhabitants. No-one has yet discovered the secret passage [preposition] the [dungeonobject] on the [firstsecondetc] level.
Due to the subtle influence of [Fantasy Assignment.Object] ([preposition] the [dungeonobject] on level [twothrufour]) with a powerful curse on it, nearly all the inhabitants have become increasingly [nuts] and some have gained additional bizarre physical and mental deformities. Some have become obsessed with [Fantasy Adventure Locations.Worshipped] for reasons unknown.
Perhaps the most disturbing room in the dungeon is the so-called [whateverchamber] which the intelligent creatures in the dungeon fear above all else. However, beyond it there is a [Fantasy NPC (Basic).main] who hails from the homeland of one of your PCs and may aid him/her, though s/he covets the PCs’ (whatever they have that’s unusual) and is repulsed by the sight of every [dungeonobject] s/he sees in the dungeon.
The dungeon’s architecture resembles an overgrown [typeofbuilding], however every [dungeonobject] in it is made of [stuff] and [stuff].
Moreover, it is said that, hidden deep within the complex where no mortal has been in eons, is the [thingamabob] of [Creepy Fantasy Villain.Scary] and [totallymetal].
