Dungeonpalooza is a collectively-created world for any version of Dungeons and Dragons, Castles and Crusades, or just about any fantasy system where the GM wants to add a bit of levity -- and dungeons. LOTS AND LOTS OF DUNGEONS.

Dunegeonpalooza is designed to be a "living system" -- constantly in flux, with enough freedom for GMs to throw in just about any creature, location and dungeon their minds can create. The tone is generally humorous, although there are opportunities for drama and even terror. It is safe to say that if you aren't playing the setting at least some for laughs, though, that you are missing the point.

Read Thoth93's DungeonpaloozaIntro for a general introduction to the ideas behind Dungeonpalooza, or check out Dungeonpalooza's continents and deities to get it straight from the horse's mouth (but watch out, this is Gygaxian D&D; that might turn out to be a Vorpal Horse).

Enjoy what we've created so far, and add your own ideas -- either to the offical thread in the forums, or here.

The Continents of Dungeonpalooza[edit]

Cretaton, where gnome meets dinosaur in a land of savage, one-sided battle.

Kas-Turaaal, now with every type of climate for your adventuring convenience.

Pagurus; In Pagurus, the crabs scratch you!

Schlackengravva, storied birthplace of dwarven surliness.

S'yar Wan, a rainy, depressing and rodent-infested haven for adventurers too low-level to fight real monsters.

Prestige Classes[edit]

The Axemaster is a student from Urferberf's Academy of Axemanship who emulates his mentor's axe-based combat style.

The Dino-Tamer has attuned his spirit to the dinosaurs of western Cretaton, granting him a dinosaur companion, special skill at defending himself from dino predators, and even a few spells and quirks derived from his link with nature.

The Dwarven_Widow is a member of the elite Dwarven Widow Corps, a Schlackengravva security force that employs widows as front-line warriors against criminals and invaders.
