Gormand's Larder

I finished my small zine. It's a small dungeon of 6 rooms. The dungeon is made only of illustrations, there is no stats or rooms descriptions. I started with a idea from Benjamin Baugh and I randomly generated the rooms with Tricks, Empty Rooms, & Basic Trap Design (by Courtney C. Campbell). Naturally I took some liberty and I only used the tables as a building base.

My goal was to do something short, I just wanted a casual project to be able to finish something. It took a little bit too much time to drawn and assemble everything, but it was fun to do. Maybe I will be able to work faster if I do a second one.

Note: the scale of the doors in the dungeon is a little bit weird, I guess that Gormand (the giant) must bend over to pass under most of the doors. Maybe he have grown too large while eating all of his magical and cursed recipes.


To print the "staple it in the middle" version, you need to print two pages by sheet of paper and to turn the pages toward the shorter side (before printing it on both sides).

If anyone use Gormand's Larder for a game, please tell me about it. Suggestions on how to make a better illustrations dungeon are super welcome.

  2. I am drawing it. There is a few phrases, but it's going to be mostly composed of illustrations.

  3. Awesome stuff, man! All the details and weird ideas are sooo awesomely great! :D For some "creatures" and stuff I would like to have some discription. So, in room 4, illustration white 1: Is the guy farting something...strang...or did he just get some tails?
    So many weird stuff! You are my hero! :D

  4. Everything is up for interpretation. Maybe the effect is to fart tails for 2d6 days. :P

  5. That is great, and unique. Almost too many great ideas (60 of them will never get used!) It looks like the larder is all carved into a giant tree. And, it's possible the giant has his minions to run in there and get things for him.

  6. Just oozing flavor. I could pour over this for hours figuring out how to fit it into a campaign.

  7. I have been toying around with a Pacific Northwest fantasy setting, and this module would be a very cool setting for a notable menace of the Legendary variety. A monster who feasts on the flesh and souls of those he captures and is devoted to a twisted Forest spirit: It just reeks of potential!

  8. I just finished running Gormand's Larder. It was great, thanks! The best part is now I can pour through it to mine it for ideas I didn't use. For instance, they didn't mess with the Recipes Chamber much. I'm pretty sure in a session or two they are going to run into a practitioner of BEAST MAGICK inspired by stuff in Gormand's Larder and that room in particular.
