Dungeon Adventures, or simply Dungeon, was a magazine targeting consumers of role-playing games, particularly Dungeons & Dragons. It was first published by TSR, Inc. in 1986 as a bimonthly periodical.[2] It went monthly in May 2003 and ceased print publication altogether in September 2007 with Issue 150.[3][4][5] Its sister publication was the more widely read Dragon. Both magazines are now published by Wizards of the Coast in an online format.

Each issue featured a variety of self-contained, pre-scripted, playtested game scenarios, often called "modules" (now more commonly referred to as "adventures" or "scenarios"). Gamemasters could either enact these adventures with their respective player groups as written or adapt them to their own campaign settings. By providing a full complement of ideas, hooks, plots, adversaries, creatures, illustrations, maps, hand-outs, and character dialogue, Dungeon aimed to save gamemasters a great deal of time and effort in preparing game sessions for their players. Plus, as a resource containing several modules per issue, it was significantly cheaper than standard-format modules, which perhaps explains its enduring popularity.
