Once again we return to my classic “Dyson’s Delve” with another pair of maps from my 2019 redraw of the mini mega dungeon. This entry brings us to the mid-deep levels of the delve, where we find evil cultists and a second entry point into the dungeon.
This level is a change from the earlier levels of the dungeon – instead of a mix of creatures and dungeon denizens trying to get along, this is an evil temple with a surface exit, acolytes, clergy, and visiting representatives of a powerful creature who lives much lower in the dungeon.
The surface exit is important, in my opinion, when building a megadungeon. It allows the adventurers to skip the earlier levels when re-entering the dungeon in the future.
Level 8 is the smallest level of the Delve, with only 7 distinct “rooms” (a few of which are subdivided into separate areas). It also has the honour of being home to Owlbears.
Seriously, who doesn’t love OwlBears?
