Comments on 2019-10-09 Ten random dungeons generated

I like it! Looks very usable, especially with the yellow highlighting.

Thanks! Now that I look at the maps a bit closer I see that many of them are repeats. I need to think about the random number seed a bit more. I fear it’s simply taking the current time and passing it off to the mapp generator, which thus gets the same seed for every map. That’s not cool.

Heh, all thanks to ktrey parker and J. Alan Henning who pushed me towards it because I was quite skeptical, and they wrote the random tables for it. Beautiful!

This is another amazing resource for randomness – thank you. I use Hex Describe quite a bit to generate random entries for my D&D wilderness treks (using tables I have created from mash ups of existing material/adventures and my own mind) and am wondering how I would add in a chance of generating one of these dungeons? I’ve done a quick search of your wiki, the source file and can’t see anything specific – is it possible?

It depends on what you want. If you’re already writing your own random tables, then it’s easy to simply add [dungeon] and it’ll add one to your entry.

Thanks for this. Looking through the tables it’s an amazing piece of work by you and ktrey parker and J. Alan Henning. Much more complex that I usually create, but full of interesting ways of using code you’ve written. Thanks again.
