It’s been a long week, but I’ve got level 6 done of the Delve – available as usual as either just the map or as a One Page Dungeon stocked for classic B/X Dungeons & Dragons.
What is immediately different about this level is that it is made of two distinct areas that are not connected on this level. In fact, the dungeon section to the lower-left is only accessible from level 7 of the dungeon.
The area that the party will first discover (coming down from above) is a section of the dungeon that has been taken over by the adventurers / mercenaries / explorers from the temple deeper in the dungeon. The exact nature of the temple is left to the DM, but obviously should be an organization that will have no qualms killing off the PCs as they expand their control of the dungeon.
The other section is still abandoned (like the majority of level 5), and is an old prison of a creature that is cursed to only die a violent death, and thus has been imprisoned here for quite some time.
