Yes, this is related to the move I posted yesterday… 😉

I’m currently working on a side project about a labyrinth in a fantasy universe. I need some help here, not to actually craft it, not about how it should be designed or anything about its layout, but rather about clarifying what a proper labyrinth is.
So, in that regard what is their to say about…
… the feel of a labyrinth?
… the environment?
… the features?
… the inhabitants (if any)?
… the general ecology?
… what’s important in a labyrinth?
… the kind of treasure?
Before I post anything myself, I’d like to read other peoples’ thought on the matter, if only to get some unbiased opinions. I’m convinced that the most important thing about labyrinths is aesthetics, that the people running around inside it should feel like being trapped in a maze.
For that matter, what kind of (non-magical) equipment should the adventurers bring along, and what kind of nefarious traps can be found down there?
Keep in mind that this isn’t about actual design or map-making, just about the characteristics of a fantasy labyrinth environment.
