Foreboding Fromagerie Master Post

(This is the main post, if you are going to link to the Foreboding Fromagerie, please link here!)

The Foreboding Fromagerie 

This is a collective project by the OSR discord collective.  I had the idea of having a collective dungeon where each person would do a room or two.  A theme and a name were soon proposed, and here we are!  

This is not playtested material - yet.  Many of the creators will be running the dungeon and this will be, in time, *very* well playtested.  Adjustments will be made.  This is also a dungeon in construction - I am not done.  Depending on the moment you see this post, it may or may not be in a playable state (at the moment, with the monsters missing, it is not).

Original Idea, Dungeon Director, Editor, web publisher, official contact, archivist, person to blame:  Ancalagon (i.e. me)

I had the idea for a collective dungeon, I set the general direction (although not the theme), stitched rooms together, made adjustments etc.  The great majority of the creativity and wondrous ideas came from the numerous participants in this collective dungeon project.   So while I "made it happen", it would have been impossible without them.  Small changes were sometimes needed - I apologize to the authors, and I hope they understand.  If any room has deficiencies... it's my fault :)

I also did rooms 1, 25, 36 and 37, the Wizard's design and some entries on the Graffiti table.  I also stated several monsters and foes, and managed faction relations.
