Is this the most interesting dungeon entrance?
Can you provide an image of a better dungeon entryway?

Turns out that animals like walking on clearer paths, just like humans do.

Turns out that if you clear a path for vehicles, it takes a while for trees to grow on it.

Turns out if an animal walks in a grassy path, the grass usually stays okay, but the trees do not spread into it very well.

Stranger 'Caves' have the best candy?

What about a normal city that happens to be also a dungeon?
Some doors, any door, maybe the one that leads to the kitchen of the tavern, or the bathroom door in a house, leads to a certain part of a dungeon.
And some entrances and holes in the dungeon lead to parts of the town.
Let's say.. you get into the bakery just to end up in a room with some monsters. You kill them and you go out. You explore the place a few moments but when you enter into another room of the dungeon, you end up appearing in the tavern, or maybe in the bakery itself.
>>
>>45225599
That's what they want you to think.
>>
>>45238479
So would it have normal citizens going about their daily lives, aware that there are monsters living in their basements?
>>
>>45236516

>>
>>45238554

Maybe the whole city is an illusion.
Maybe the portals that lead the players to the dungeon don't affect the citizens.
Maybe it's all a huge conspiracy.
Maybe the citizens aren't what they seem to be.
Maybe all the citizens are already controlled by the boss of the dungeon, so the monsters under his service don't attack them.

Hell it's a damn game and it probably involves magic or high-tech, you can fill the plot holes in any way you want.

>Hell it's a damn game and it probably involves magic or high-tech, you can fill the plot holes in any way you want.
No shit, but I was asking how you were picturing it.
>>
>>45227437
Actually, I gotta say, that's pretty clever.

I can see starting the campaign this way too, but misdirecting your players, subtly, to think that they got this punishment for sub optimal characters.
>>
>>45238826

Sorry if it sounded aggressive, it wasn't. I was just brainstorming a little.

Most of the ideas I mentioned sound fine to me... hmmm
Probably the most appealing is one where the citizens aren't aware at all of this. So maybe they are not affected or they are somehow hypnotized or something to not detect the dungeon parts or the monsters.
That might lead to interesting situations where the party, trying to save everyone, end up getting in trouble in the city cause they are acting like mad men.
>>
>>45238554
Probably not, I feel like having a dungeon fused with your town could really fuck up infrastructure. It would probably be a ghost town
>>
>>45238906
I've actually run that before, as I'm sure many others have in the long history of tabletop. It's a pretty cool adventure, would run again.

It's a drainage well in the pond. You can see the raised edges of the well under water. Since it's slightly below the water level, water keeps flowing into it, and presumably through drainage pipes into a river or something.
Judging from the grass growing on the inside, the water level on the pond varies between seasons. The well is presumably built to prevent flooding during the time of the years the water level is at the highest.

My favorite dungeon entrances are innocuous doorways in completely mundane palces. I once ran a game where they party went through like 8 session dungeon whose entrance was at the back of a pantry of this random peasants house that the PC's were helping out. There was a rusty padlock on it that the rouge easily got through and a sign that said "keep out! Rats!" but, ya know, PC's cant read signs.
