Honestly, we probably should have expected the Dungeon Master’s Screen: Dungeon Kit, announced this week for release on Sept. 21
Aug. 17, 2021; after all, last year’s Wilderness Kit probably left many wondering why Dungeons & Dragons wouldn’t have such an accessory for the titular “dungeons” on deck.
But that didn’t necessarily mean we expected geomorphs to make a comeback.
Dungeon geomorphs are basically pieces of complete dungeons, with standard interconnections that let you combine and recombine them in many different ways. The new version, detailed below, takes the form of punch-out cards.
Back in the the D&D game’s early days, Dungeon Geomorphs were an accessory all their own. Later “dungeon kit”-style accessories incorporated them, such as the AD&D 1st Edition Dungeon Master’s Design Kit and its successor, the AD&D 2E Dungeon Builder’s Guidebook — neither of which included a DM screen, like this next-generation version:
