I've been helping judge this years One Page Dungeon Contest.
Part of the process was for each judge to nominate 20 entries and a "category" for each one. Below are my twenty.
Just to be clear. These aren't the final winners. These are just the twenty entries I picked during the first round of judging. Other judges picked there own set of twenty. And it was hard to narrow down to only twenty. There were 35 in my "these are awesome" pile after my first read through of the ~60 entries.
BTW Here are all the 2010 One Page Dungeon Contest Entries.
