Andrey Plisko (SmashStar Games), one of the creators and participants in the One Page Dungeon Contest, has put together

a small collection of (17) entries from the 2017 One Page Dungeon Compendium, all of which have been translated into Russian.

Andrey reached out about this project in 2017, and I have worked with him in support of his efforts.

I am excited to see the the featured One Page Dungeons being made more accessible to members of the international role playing community, as well as giving more exposure to the creators themselves.

Translating these entries into Russian was no easy feat, and

my hat is off to Andrey!
