I used this dungeon on my first ever GM session of Mausritter and it was absolutely brilliant. I tweaked things a bit, but the whole affair was super fun. Really appreciate the maps being offered in both isometric and top-down formats - gives you a good mental map of how the PCs can progress through the dungeon.
Temple of the Slumbering Orchid
A downloadable dungeon
"For generations, a tight-knit niche of mouse botanists have been studying regarding this mysterious plant, the only one of its species. Though information recovered from ancient ruins reveals that it blooms only every 100 years; the importance of this plant, or why creatures of the past built a temple around it, remain mysteries. However, these mysteries might soon be solved. If the old manuscripts are accurate, the Slumbering Orchid is about to bloom again."
At the start of this jam, Isaac once mentioned in the Discord server that the theme of this jam was genious because it was forcing a bunch of grimdark OSR dudes like us to come up with content about flowers.
Luckily, I'm a clever little shit and I played through Woodfall temple in Majora's Mask once so I know a thing or two about making content centered around flowers grimdark.
Dive into a strange dungeon full of strange flower traps and twisted plant monsters.
This two-spread module includes:
- Isometric and top-down maps of the dungeon
- Four unique monsters
- Four unique items
Althought this dungeon was created for Mausritter as a sumbmission for the Mayfield jam, it requires a minimal ammount of effort to be adapted for other systems.
