Setting up a den for adventurers to go through can be hard. The game master has a map on his piece of paper, but he may not be able to convey this to the players easily. If the game master wants to have players visualize the area, he needs to use the Dungeons & Dragons Den of Evil Room & Passage Set. This set, which has been out of print for some time, has recently been brought back into print. The owner of the set can find everything he/she needs in order to recreate a small dungeon.
Many of the dungeons found in published adventures for the Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder role playing game go through several floors. The set does not give a person the items he needs to fully map the dungeon on a table, but it can make other items, such as barriers for a large battle clearer.

There are things that are not included in the Den of Evil Room and Passage Set. The set does not include the miniatures a player might want. There are many other places and companies that provide that. Ral Partha, Citadel, and Wizards of the Coast all produce miniatures that can be used in a person’s fantasy game. The miniatures may also be used for setting up areas in other games. Call of Cthulhu, for example, often requires people to explore strange and alien settings. The difference between the supernatural horror of the Call of Cthulhu game and the fantasy game is that the villains in the former are cold and uncaring. The villains in the latter genre often have a deep and abiding interest in humans. Unlike the elder gods, the villains in the fantasy genre often value souls highly. The walls and other items in the set do not care however.
