The Tomb of Rai Dungeon Map

Here we have the first of our Dungeons, The Tomb of Rai.

The Dungeons in this series are designed to be usable in any game you want to, which is why I have left the details as open as possible. You will need to populate the rooms with specific monsters or traps that fit the game you are running, but each Dungeon room tells you what should be placed in it.

This tomb houses the sarcophagus of Rai, a cleric of a church of Justice. The tomb is situated below a ruined temple destroyed by an earthquake. The upper floor of the temple is still strewn with the remnants of the clerics, and acolytes that called it home.
