Go To

You are all the captives of an evil sorcerer. For weeks on end, new people have been brought in, and swept away again. The sorcerer uses them as subjects for his dark experiments. Needless to say, you've tried very hard to escape.
Today, you finally managed to get out of your prison. Now all that's left is to flee the sorcerer's dungeon before he finds you...
— Introduction to DungeonFlight

The Dungeon Series (also known as the Dungeon_____ Series) are Play-by-Post Games on the MSPA Forums by Plumfinder. The idea of the game is that the players have been captured by an Evil Overlord and must do whatever necessary to escape their dungeon, unlike some other roleplays however, once a player has died they are gone for good and they are not coming back, they're dead.


The first one was popular enough that Plumfinder created more, there is currently 3 in the series: DungeonFlight, DungeonRun and DungeonCrawl (the third one is currently still ongoing). They can be found here, here and here.

The Dungeon Series as a whole provides examples of:


List of Tropes for DungeonFlight:

  • Animate Inanimate Object: The first enemy is an animate cannon.
  • Item Crafting: Green combines a Tigerbeast tail and an axe to create... a tail tied to an axe. This doesn't stop Green from turning the Axewhip into a terrifying weapon.
  • Sinister Scythe: The escapees managed to get a hold of one of these. Not just any scythe either, it's none other than Death's very own scythe!

List of Tropes for DungeonRun:

  • Cool Hat: Mustard sports a fedora with a feather in it. He can even pull mice out of it.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Mustard sides himself with the betrayer, what follows is a rampage that even the Game Master himself did not expect.
  • I Call Her "Vera": Dark Red makes himself a spear, which he instantly names Barron Stabin of Pikeshire.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Mustard manages to turn the useless mice into an effective weapon.
  • Invisibility Cloak: At one point, Mustard finds an Invisibility Cloak which allows him to perform actions privately, leaving the other players in the dark about what he is doing offscreen.
"Not like I've got any nefarious plans or anything. Seriously I've been playing checkers with this one side boss for like 20 turns now (I think I'm winning finally)."
  • Team Pet: Blue gets a pet Tigerbeast, not is it only a Cool Pet, it becomes a very deadly companion and even survives throughout the entire game.
  • The Voiceless: Grey does not talk, except on the rare case where the Game Master forgets.
