A good story can almost always make a location interesting. But some locations are more fun to start with.
Favorite Dungeon Type/Location
Filled with magic and wonder, not one is the same, it is a classic location that needs to be in every campaign. The mystical wizard tower.
Once in sight the hero’s know something is up. Why is this random 8 story high tower standing in the middle of the desert? What is inside? Is it still inhabited, and more important will there be treasure?
This location is the perfect place to dive into the strange and weird stuff of the world. Maybe there are no stairs in the tower. Maybe once inside you see there are no floors above you and you can only use the ladder to go downstairs. After descending a whole session the PC’s reach to main floor again.
The things living inside can be so random as you like. Things created by the wizard like Golems or enslaved pixies, maybe behind a door is a vault filled with golden dolphins. Nothing makes sense and it shouldn’t.
It is the perfect opportunity to use the monsters you want to use but never get the change to and to test the players as well with some nice puzzles or riddles.
And that’s why the wizard tower is my favorite dungeon.
