Maze of the Caliph

A dungeon idea inspired by the "Scooby Doo meets Jeanie" cartoon special.It was decreed that any young Prince who wished to become Caliph must first enter the Pyramid of Kings and remain inside, alone, for a year and a day.

By tradition, each Prince that survived and became Caliph would add their own room or puzzel to the labyrinth, which has resulted in a sprawling complex of corridors, rooms and caverns that now extends far below the pyramid itself.

Inside is a series of traps, puzzels and riddles, each designed to teach the Prince what it is to rule. Some test his endurance, others his skill with a sword, wisdom, intellect, compassion, guile, or of a hundred other qualities deemed important to become a king. But to rule is not easy, and many of the rooms reward failure with death.
