Welcome! *

I couldn't find a fan site for one of the best roleplaying games ever invented, so I decided to make one. If you've never heard of Dinky Dungeons, you're in for a real treat. This game is a piece of RPG history. Though it isn't widely known, it had an impact on the rules development of other games. If you've heard of Dinky Dungeons and you're nostalgic about it, please take a moment to visit the Guest Book and tell us about your Dinky adventures.

Random Encounter

Advice From The Grizzled Veteran: "If you want to bring guests or pets, ask the host and game master for permission ahead of time."

Adventurer's Horoscope: Two words: Evil Dwarf. Don't stop for a minor injury. Walk it off.

Famous Last Words: "I've been here before. There are no traps in this section."

New content!
Thanks to scans sent by Dinky Dungeon fans, we're expanding our artwork collection. Writing is underway to finish our Dinky Dragons modules. We're also working on a Dinky Dungeons Facebook page so that players can chat and share media with each other.

First Module
The first full module is complete, including maps, NPC statistics, and sample dialog. Bold adventurers can now explore the Tower of Dark Sorcery. This combat-light module is a humorous tale of a grumpy old wizard, a mysterious witch, and a clever young genie. Characters can gamble at the inn, chase a pesky phooka, explore an ancient tower, and perhaps even help two old rivals become star-crossed lovers!

Dinky Submissions
Have ideas for a Dinky Dragons rules addition, supplement or module? Submit your idea - we'll publish it on this site and give you full credit. Especially good submissions will earn a gift certificate to J!NX or Think Geek, your choice!

Looking for Denton (Doc) Elliott!
I'd love to exchange emails with Denton R. Elliott. If we're lucky, perhaps he'll give us a short interview with comments and memories about this amazing game. If you know how to contact anyone involved in the creation or playtesting of Dinky Dungeons, please send me an email!
