30 Day D&D Challenge: Day 12-Favorite Dungeon Type/Location

I gotta go with the classic "Ruins-in-a-dark-wood" for this one.  I mean, its timeless really.  Its a picturesque setting, it can house both giant spiders and undead monstrosities, and the ruins always have cool names like "The Dungeons of Thraxgar" or "The Tower of Ulthuun."  And at the bottom there's almost always some sort of Vampire.  Like I said, classic.

While exploring the "Venom Woods" we found one set of dungeon ruins called "The Ruins of Kroclakah."  Inside I believe we fought a rust monster, gargoyles, ettercaps, a gelatinous cube, a mimic, giant preying mantises, ran into an entire room of brown mold, and at the bottom fought a Death Kiss Beholder, which is like a beholder except its eyestalks are replaced with blood-draining hooked tentacles for extra grossness.  Yeah, you really can't go wrong with the classic Forest Ruins for the sheer variety of beasties you can fit in there.
