100+ descriptions to liven up any dark place.
"Bits of Darkness: Dungeons" is provided to bring
new life to your dungeons by adding short "bits" of
description to energize your adventures. It is written to be
of use to both experienced and inexperienced Game Masters, particularly
those who (for whatever reason) find themselves short on time
This is created to be an "on the go" product, which
means you don't need to read the entire work before you can use
it. The descriptions are designed so that they can be randomly
generated as you play or placed carefully ahead of time. For
example, instead of saying "The room is empty," a GM
can whip out Bit #47 and read, "You come across a backpack
that appears to have been ripped open by a clawed hand and teeth.
Its worthless contents have been scattered around, torn, and
trampled..." and so on, painting a picture to add spice and
interest to your dungeon, crypt, or other dark place. Essentially,
nothing in your dungeon has changed. There is still effectively
nothing there, but is no longer "just another empty room!"
This book includes 100 Bits of description, and 6 Shards. The
Bits are small pieces that can be stuck in, anywhere a little
description is needed, and are numbered so they can be used randomly.
Shards are slightly larger, and may depict a particular place
or event, or set a feel for an area. The material is also indexed
a number of ways to allow a GM to easily find a description to
fit a particular circumstance. Each Bit is also provided in index
card format for ease of use by Game Masters.
As a special bonus, we have included 8 descriptions that could
be used in a catacomb area, and some "Bits of Trouble,"
a few tricks or traps to keep players on their toes. In addition,
some descriptions are graphically depicted in the excellent interior
art by the Carmona Brothers.
