Wrestleworld is a wrestling based dungeon crawl for od&d. I wrote and play tested this years ago back at the beginning of g+. This is the latest half finished draft. Magic items, monsters, and a few other things need to be added but is playable, I am guessing , at the moment.
What Wrestleworld is like
A series of dungeons, and fun houses devised by various wrestling bookers. Monsters that look like professional wrestlers, faces, heels, and tweeners, fill these dungeons, and arenas.
Wrestleworld is a series of dungeons and fun houses connected by a central flea market. Each dungeon is an expression of the booker who runs it. Some are filled with gruesome weapons like c4 explosives, and barbed wire spider nets, others sports entertainment, and another the imagination of a small indy promoter in Mexico. Each area is filled with the wrestling tropes that surround each style. Old ladies yelling for the last piece of pizza, low treasure payouts and washed up has beens fill the indy dungeon. Sport entertainment arenas emphasize glitz, and story lines over action and skill.
Setting is to be used as an addition to the oldest version of a certain fantasy role playing game.
