Random Dungeon Map generator

If you've been following the blog for any length of time you will probably know that I like to make lots of little (modular) dungeon tiles for use with virtual tabletops ...i.e. something like those pictured below:

Well, I was recently contacted by the guys from Fantasy Calendar ...and they asked if I'd be OK with them making a (free) random dungeon generator that featured my tiles.

So, of course, I said yes!

Anyway, the generator went live last night - so HERE is the link (note that only the artwork is mine - the website, the coding, etc., is all a result of their hard work)...

...and pictured below is an example map/screenshot:

So, as you can see, you can:
  • Generate maps of various sizes (or even make a multi-level megadungeon).
  • Click on some of the tiles to cycle through a few of the variants that I've drawn.
  • Export the full size map (that you can then load into your VTT of choice).
  • Download a dynamic lighting layer for (the paid version of) Roll20.

So yeah, I think the Fantasy Calendar team have done a fantastic job on this if you like the idea of being able to generate a nice looking dungeon map with just the click of a button, why not give it a try :)

(note that Haxxer, from Fantasy Calendar Ltd., just posted on reddit if you want to give them any feedback)
