Even as you approach this darkened chamber, you are overwhelmed by the offensively pungent odor of rotting dung. The stonework here seems different then the rest of the dungeon, strangely out of place, as does the symmetrically awkward structure of the room. Pillars line the room, spaced 5 feet from the outer walls in 10-foot intervals. Unfortunately, your examination of the room is cut quick by several monstrous bellows and the pounding of feet as a huge, multiheaded saurian beast charges at you!

Discover Gormoth the Ever-Hungry! (Room 9, Level 1)

The Dungeon Under the Mountain is a massive dungeon complex extending endlessly below the ground. In a remote past, ancient evil beings dwelled in the area. Now, the remaining mysterious evil beings have seized the dungeons and filled it with deadly traps and monsters. Also, many known villains have established their strongholds in the depths of the Dungeon Under the Mountain. Nobody knows why this dungeon is filled with danger, but nobody cares, since this dungeon is the most prized adventure ground of the world. However, be warned, adventurers: your life will be not easy here and dozens of self-appointed heroes have never returned from the Dungeon Under the Mountain! You Have Been Warned!

This is part of a series of products detailing the rooms in the massive Dungeon Under the Mountain environment; it can be adapted without effort to any existing dungeon. It includes miniatures-scale maps where appropriate.

This product has been designed to help busy referees in preparing dungeon adventures and encounters. Instead of wasting time scaling encounters and adapting them to your party, here you will find an encounter pre-scaled to three different levels of play (low, mid and high levels). At the beginning of the encounter text, you will find a big button. This button allows you to select the level you want to play, and changes the relevant portions of the text accordingly. Monsters will scale, DCs will change, traps and villain behaviors will change.

Beside each paragraph you will find a smaller button that allows you to change only the selected paragraph. Therefore, if you need stronger monsters in your low-level encounter, you can adjust them, leaving other sections configured for low levels. Likewise, if you want traps tougher, just click on the paragraph button and change the level of the trap paragraph. Blank spaces caused by differing text lengths will be filled with placeholder artwork, so the pages will still look good.

The smaller maps feature the "Rule the Dungeon" button. By clicking it, you can customize the map by opening or closing the doors, removing the furniture or removing the fill in the walls and more, depending on the room's layout.

This product takes advantage of PDF technology, joining old-fashioned style with the most advanced electronic features. In order to use this product you must use Adobe Reader 6 or later.

Get ready to hold your nose! Which can of course make it a bit difficult to wave your sword or get the verbal component of your spell precisely right...

The latest room in The Dungeon Under the Mountain is a coprophobe's nightmare. Even as you approach, you can smell rotting dung and it only gets worse as you get closer. A bunch of kobolds, whom the party really ought to have encountered on their way here, worship or at least attempt to placate the many-headed, every-hungry and decidedly not house-broken resident of this chamber. If they don't find it enough food, they feature on the menu, quite an incentive. Should the party befriend them, they'll ask for help in destroying their hungry deity, otherwise they probably think adventurers taste better than kobold and try to serve them up.

Following the familiar pattern, this encounter includes enough backstory to fit it in smoothly, along with scalable stat-blocks for our many-headed friend, the kobolds (including a few personalities), traps and relevant skill checks. You can set the entire thing to be a high, middle or low challenge, or tailor things by choosing which bits are to be harder or easier...

The map, too, can be altered; and is provided as a single-sheet for DM reference and a larger version for use as a battlemap. Oh, and they had to come up with a new symbol for a dung-pile!

A neat little encounter with enough going on to make it more than a mere monster-bash... but if bashing monsters is what you enjoy this one has a good and challenging combat.
