Elite Monsters and Bosses

An elite monster is a terrifying enemy from the levels below who is spending some of their time in this room. Their combat roll modifier it's not only the floor level, but also character's level! So if your character is level 3, on floor 2, the minimum roll to hit (MRTH) is:

A Boss is another gruesome enemy always found in the last room of the floor. Handle it as an elite monster, but do a DC to see how many minions he has. If it passes, he has 4. Otherwise, 2. A boss always drops one potion, one dagger, and one gold piece as treasure.

Wandering Monsters

When moving back to an existing room, do a DC. If it passes. handle it as a new encounter.


A level has 12 a maximum of rooms.

If the player got to the 12th room and still haven't find the stairs, this room is the stairs and also is the floor boss lair.

Dungeon Log

Since we don't have rooms anymore, it's advised to keep what we call a Dungeon Log. Each line in it displays what is in the room. For example:
