Design Notes


Writing a 1000 page megadungeon took me a long time. Here are some notes about the process.



What is Arden Vul? What is AD&D? These and other FAQs are addressed here.

The Arden Vul Team



Rick Barton began playing 1st edition AD&D in 1978. Arden Vul was conceived as a tentpole dungeon for the campaign that he began when he returned to gaming in 2009. 



The maps have been rendered from the author's pencil sketches by the inimitable Andreas Claren, who has been producing maps for old school games for more than 15 years.



The Halls are due to be published by Expeditious Retreat Games in 2020. For more information, see X and Y.
