Dungeon Map Design

Enworld member Melan posted an interesting essay analyzing dungeon layouts in a variety of classic dungeons a while ago. He discusses adventure flow for each one and plots them out in simplified tree diagrams. A good read if you're a dungeon designer.


  1. When I did the map for my one-page dungeon I kept in mind that I needed to have a type D. map with circular routes. :)

  2. Absolutely a must-read.

    Too bad my one page dungeon submission was way to simple for this. :)
