UPDATE (4/19/2009) - Sharpen your pencils, get out the graph paper and enter the One Page Dungeon Contest! A "metric ton" of awesome prizes awaits those who dare! Contest ends May 14th, 2009!
Yesterday, Sham/Dave posted about his attempts to create a template for a "one page" dungeon level key. That was all prompted by a discussion on the Original D&D Forum about creating megadungeons.
As I said, one of my "McFly" weaknesses is someone saying "Gee, I wish a geek would do this...". It's how I created the microlite20 character generator and microlite20 NPC generator (which actually got me back into PHP and helped me to find a job in July, but that's a strange story for another day...) and it's how I was tempted (obsessed) to solve Sham's problem.
The hardest part actually was getting the 6 line/in, 30x30 grid from the Incompetech PDF (I used the Cornell template, based on Norman Harman's suggestion) into the OpenOffice document - I learned how to upgrade Ubuntu 8.10 to OpenOffice 3.0 in a roundabout way and got the PDF import extension. After that, it was pretty easy to use frames (text boxes) and line everything up.
The One Page Dungeon Level Templates can be downloaded here. This zip includes both Word and OpenOffice documents/templates.
In honor of Sham's ideas, I'm releasing my own One Page Dungeon Level - The Wizard's Ruined Tower Level 1 - it's based loosely on an old 2E Fast Play module and one of the (I think) 3E Quick Start adventures. I can't remember quite where it came from. The map is hand-drawn in pencil. It's stat'ed for an OD&Dish type of game, so microlite74, OD&D, Holmes and Swords/Wizardry should work just fine with this. I used this to tweak the one page template.
