** The ruined castle was built on top of the legendary tomb of [[TheHighQueen Queen]] [[AerithAndBob Aerith]] TheMagnificent, who ruled [[TheTimeOfMyths thousands of years before]] and was buried along with much of her fabulous wealth. (The tomb itself was built to be as confusing as possible to grave-robbers, and whilst the location of the tomb was long-forgotten, rumours of the treasure within conveniently remained.)

** The "dungeon" is the crypt of a disused temple designed according to some esoteric meaning that made sense according to the old religion that is now lost to the mists of time; its mysteries having died with the last priest.

Added DiffLines:

** The dungeon was made as part of an elaborate "folly" (deliberately-designed fake ruins) by a wealthy aristocrat with no long ancestry, but wanted to make a pretense of it to show off to his guests (whose titles went back generations). It doesn't make any practical sense because it was never meant to.

* '''Justified''': We're told that the ruins were made as part of an "interactive entertainment experience", or less meta, to make it hard to get whatever is inside of it.

** The dead ends weren't dead ends when they were built, but have long since been looted and worn down to nothing by the passage of time, and/or the explorers lack the proper knowledge to make sense of what is left so neither can the audience.

* '''Exploited''': ???The {{Precursors}} set up fake temples with fake gods for outsiders and pillagers. Thus they'd risk life and limb to grab their silly little pyrite idols and wooden totems while leaving their real, better hidden, and far grander ones alone.

* '''Deconstructed''': As it turns out, the ruins make perfect sense: They were built to attract adventurers thousands of years after their building, so the monster living inside can have some nice dietary supplements on an occasional basis.
* '''Reconstructed''': Same as above, except the monster was a good guy all along and designed the dungeon to attract the ChosenOne.



* '''Exploited''': ???



* '''Plotted A Perfectly Good Waste''': The ruins make no sense as buildings because they were never buildings to begin with. They look like ruins to disguise that their origins are much more recent, and they're currently in use by someone with big, nasty plans.
