A parallel universe of fantasy roleplaying. 

Participate in a world that diverged from ours in 1993.

Everything a player needs is here: Become your fantasy, learn their heritage, watch them grow more powerful and become ruler over their domain, direct war.

Everything a referee needs is here, whether you’re running a single adventure or masterminding an entire world. Fill your dungeons with surprises, your domains with intrigue and your characters with personality.

Whether you’re orq, halfling or devil-marked, Advanced Fantasy Dungeons is for you. 


Advanced Fantasy Dungeons is a fantasy tabletop roleplaying adventure game, compatible with little effort with B/X and AD&D 2e adventures! It's currently over 150 pages, and contains:

  • Complete rules for character generation including 9 character classes and 7 heritages, plus rules to make custom heritages
  • A complete equipment list
  • Over 180 wizardly and priestly spells and psionic powers, and rules for arcane and psionic duels, as well as for spell conversion and creation
  • Over 70 stat blocks for monsters and basic NPCs, as well as rules for monster conversion and creation
  • Rules for combat, travel, and dungeon-crawling as well as hazards and traps
  • Rules for downtime, running a domain, gaining a stronghold and inter-domain war
  • Advice and support for starting and running a campaign, including campaign preparation and maintenance, dungeon stocking, how to run factions and non-player characters
  • Over 100 illustrations by Hodag
  • Character sheets and a campaign worksheet
  • Much, much more!

Right now, Advanced Fantasy Dungeons is going through playtesting, which means it's free for you to download and play. It's fully illustrated, though, with over 100 illustrations by the inimitable Hodag, and fully laid out, although with a few rough edges given revisions are anticipated. 

Donations are still appreciated, though! Advanced Fantasy Dungeons took many many hours of work on design, writing, editing, proofreading, art and layout by a small team of unpaid supporters to bring to where it is today!

Please join theAdvanced Fantasy Dungeons discord channel! We're looking for feedback on the problems you encounter and the things you need to change to inform future versions! I'll regularly update both the digital and print editions of Advanced Fantasy Dungeons based on playtest feedback. And of course, logging typos and other minor errors is welcome.

Coming soon!  If you want a print version of Advanced Fantasy Dungeons, you can get one print on demand on Lulu! It's fully illustrated and in colour, but you'll be paying for a pre-release version.

hi, do you think you could run the PDFs through an optimiser or similar? 120 meg is kind of a bit too large particularly for phone downloads, and I wouldn't like to see anyone put off

eta: I see there is a 35 meg version too which I missed but just running the pages PDF through https://www.adobe.com/acrobat/online/compress-pdf.html I get a five meg file

In my experiments optimising it below 35 megs compromises the art a little too much, but I will keep experimenting.

This looks super duper awesome! Sadly the discord invite expired. Could you please update it? :) Would love to play this

I’ve updated the discord link. It’s very strange, this is the third time it’s expired for someone, and each time it’s been an unlimited link. I’m glad you’re excited about the game!

Hi, could you make a version in Portuguese (Brazilian) if possible I would really appreciate it 

(+2)

Gosh, I don’t speak Portuguese but I’m really open to collaboration on translation if any Portuguese speakers want to volunteer their time! Portuguese speakers, join the discord and we can talk!

This looks amazing. The content is great and the art obviously is astounding. If you don't mind, I'll send you a few typos/grammar things to fix up.

Thank you so much! Join our discord! I’d be shocked if they hadn’t he caught already, I just haven’t had a chance to update the files since launch!

I love the Downtime actions, and the visuals make this one of the most handsome bestiaries I've ever flipped through. Killer work!

Thank you so much!

Oh, thank you for the kind words about my monster doodles!

Ravager appears to have been left out of the table of contents and from the "choose a class" section on page 6. I could be misreading it though.

I’ll take a look and fix it up!

I just read through this. Your game fixes so many things that make players feel powerless like not being able to avoid an attack, dying straight away at 0 HP, having enemies save against their special effects without making all characters high magic using spell slinging 1st levels. I also appreciate the way you keep character classes similarly powered to 2e but allow for a lot of out the gate, simple customization, which is one thing a lot of people miss when moving from 5e to old school games.

I will be sharing this with everyone I know who loves RPGs!
