What is Death Dungeon?
Death Dungeon is a project started as a cheap knock-off of Dungeons & Dragons. Select members of the Death Dungeon Crew didn't want to learn the rules of D&D, so we created our own version with one guiding rule: Anything goes. Through short campaigns set in a shared universe, we slowly built a world of magic and intrigue populated by a unique cast of characters. Soon, arching storylines emerged, and we had a tale worth telling.

Death Dungeon is no longer a game played around the campfire- it's a sprawling story told through various mediums. Most of the written works are adapted from campaigns we have run, while other stories were written to fill in the blanks. The combined works of Death Dungeon build upon a central idea: that everyone is the hero of their own story. This is a tale not only of heroes and kings, but of ordinary people who find their own adventures. Everyone has a life worth telling about, and all stories will be told in time.

Death Dungeon is a universe that doesn't take itself too seriously. It is often absurd, sometimes dark, and always intriguing. Every character is a caricature, but at the heart of every twisted individual is a human with very real emotions and drives. We hope that as the world progresses, you find stories worth caring about.

Reading Order
Many of the short stories are not directly connected and should be decent standalone reads. However, the order of publication is recommended for the best clarity:
Tiers
Weekly Short Stories

For three dollars a month, gain access to above, plus gain access to the bimonthly Heart of Grüheir series and vote on the course of the adventure.

$7 or more per month
Gain access to everything above, plus read any longer works or collections as they are available, right here or by digital download.  
DD Collectibles
$10 or more per month only 100 left
Once a month beginning in February, receive a package with Death Dungeon collectibles, including mini-figures and stickers. Get this tier before the start of the month to ensure your package. Also receive a free copy of any video games we may produce, as they are available.

Everyone's the hero of their own story. Create your own original character (meeting our surprisingly lax standards), and choose a theme and setting for their adventure. We will write a short-ish story about your character that will enter the canon. You can suggest two established characters to make an appearance and we will include them if it fits the established canon. We will do this once per patron per year.
Shitty Painting
$25 or more per month only 5 left
For 25 dollars a month, our lead artist will mail you a shitty 2x2 inch canvas painting of a goblin each month. Every month will feature a different goblin. Emphasis on the word shitty. We really don't expect anyone to donate at this tier. 
Get Help

For 100 dollars a month, I will personally send you a handwritten letter each month urging you to make better decisions with your money. The Death Dungeon team has also agreed to buy you a sandwich if you ever meet us in person and prove you're a $100 donor.
