Superstitious dungeoneers

There's a good post on Dungeons and Digressions about superstitious dungeoneers, which I'm linking to here so that I'll remember to use it later. These are my favorites: 8. A torch that touches the ground means someone will be injured or killed soon. 9. A bell heard underground is, well, not good. 10. At least one coin should always be left behind when treasure is recovered. 11. If you see a bat you should change your weapon. 22. If someone’s head gets chopped off near you, you should kick it far away lest you suffer the same fate. 25. Knock three times on a shield after discussing someone’s death. (I'm also a fan of the index card posts.)


  1. Thanks for the shout out - it's always nice to know someone has found something useful or of interest. :)

  2. Thanks for the inspiration. I'm putting together a weeknight OD&D game, with the intent of running adventures we can finish in 2-3 hours. The index card format should fit the bill pretty well.
