  1. Lester Ward, thanks! I came up with that too, I just don’t know if that is the origin. As far as I can tell, that is the earliest I have seen on the internet, but it may be from like Dungeon Mag or something.

  2. I’ve been trying to come up with a pbta -way to use 5-room dungeons. Anyone found a good approach to this? Prep, full impro or something between? Using rooms as guidelines for improvising different situations after entrance?

  3. As far as I know, I invented the name and approach. Published it in an early Roleplaying Tips, then other venues.

    The Strolen’s article is a copy of the Roleplaying Tips one used to launch a 5 Room Dungeon community contest at that site.
