okay. has anybody else seen the movie 1408? I'm looking for a dungeon sort of like that room. a bit bigger but the same basic principle. a place that messes with your mind and makes you absolutely crazy.

anybody know of a dungeon like this? (tomb of horrors doesn't count.)

I'm not trying to ask for a dungeon that is 1408 since that would be illegal. just one that messes with your mind

It wouldn't be so much the DESIGN of the dungeon as how you played it. You'd have to capture the feel of the short story/movie through your descriptions and whatnot, rather than through mechanics.

If I were doing something like that, though, and wanted some crunch to go with it, I might incorporate the Sanity mechanic (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/variant/campaigns/sanity.htm) from Unearthed Arcana.

Some of the first Dragon mags had some cool articles on incorporating a 4th geometric dimension into your dungeon design; that might be mind-boggling enough to give the feel of a place that makes you go crazy, but you will have to do most of it with flavor, and not mechanics or design.
