Since Jan 2014 I've been making monthly free adventure locations - interesting dungeons, ruins, settlements and lost places that you can grab for a pick-up game of your favorite adventure RPG. For example, The Lantern of Wyv:
I believe in the power of tasty ingredients that combine in unexpected ways. Rather than avalanche you with details, I distill each adventure down to its essence - a cool location, an unexpected dynamic, or a brutal challenge, and let you fill in the gaps.  There's nothing like the cold brutality of a single piece of paper to force me to get to the point.  (Though I now use both sides!)

There are now more than three years' worth, which you can browse on my blog.

I don't waste space on stat blocks, so the adventures work best with low-prep games: older editions of D&D and their retro-clones, Dungeon World, Torchbearer, FATE, or World of Dungeons (to name but a few).

Take the adventures and use them as is, fill the margin with notes, or rip them for parts. Drop them into your campaign, or use them as one-shot adventures for a change of pace, or try out a new rule set.

Along with each adventure, I release high-res scans of the maps and illustrations under CC-BY-NC, so you can restock them however you like.

You'll be killing characters in no time!

Surprise and Gratitude
You supported me! I'll send you a message thanking you personally, then bask in the delicious knowledge that there's one more person out there who loves maps of dangerous places as much as I do. I'll also send you a link to the back catalog so you don't miss anything.

Dust and Bones
Tell me the name of your favorite dungeon-crawling PC, and I'll make sure his or her remains feature somewhere in every adventure. You might be a pile of debris on the map, you might get a mention in the text, you might just be a stain on side of a sliding block. You never know - adventurers' deaths are anything but glorious, but when you see it, you'll know it's you, since nobody else is backing at this level.
Goals
$100 – reached! per adventure
If I hit $100 per adventure, I'll violate everything I hold sacred and release a supplementary page for each adventure. That's right, I'll be making one-page adventures with two pages. You can't make this up.

Page one will still feature the adventure map and all the details you need to run it, while the second page will enrich the adventure with fuller descriptions of the location, monsters, treasure, information on the motives and tactics of the denizens, fragments of history, and different ways to hook the adventure into your ongoing campaign.
