Five Rooms on Wikia

Greetings all. My apologies for the cross-posting.

I have created a new wiki on Wikia for the ever-popular Five Room Dungeon concept. For those of you who aren't familiar with the concept, it's an adventure creation model based on five rooms (areas, locations, encounters, etc.) as follows:

Room One: Entrance And Guardian
Room Two: Puzzle Or Roleplaying Challenge
Room Three: Trick or Setback
Room Four: Climax, Big Battle Or Conflict
Room Five: Reward, Revelation, Plot Twist

If any of you utilize this dungeon crafting model or think you'd like to try your hand at it, I welcome you to drop by the wiki, sign up for a username, and add your creations. I have created a special template to walk you through building wiki pages specifically designed for 5RDs.

As the wiki grows, I would love for it to be an open-source repository of one-session adventures for every DM for every game system. Come be a part of the beginning of Five Rooms Wiki!

I'm not actively playing D&D now, but IMHO, that's some good work. Very interesting.

Wouldn't it get formulaic after one or two tries? I would think after a while the PCs would start walking into your third room on Red Alert...?

Perhaps, but in a way it's just dividing classic narrative into 5 parts. The Quest Beginning, The Journey, The Switch (happens at the mid-point of most stories), The Climax, the Conclusion. Rooms is probably read as "events", and by that point most people will be expecting some kind of reveal--which need not necessarily be a negative one.
