Endless RPG is a random dungeon and adventure generator for 5th Edition Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder roleplaying games.
ENDLESS RPG IS NOT A GAME!
Endless RPG is a tool for playing pen-and-paper role-playing games alone, in a small group without a dungeon master, or with a dungeon master as either a standalone adventure or an easy way to get into the game.
MULTIPLE DUNGEON TYPES AND MULTI-LEVELS
The missions created by Endless RPG can encompass different types of 'dungeons' including caves, ruins, strongholds or the classic dungeon. The missions can also be on a single level or multiple levels mixing and matching the dungeon types, so you can explore a cave that leads to ruins or a stronghold with a dungeon below it.
Endless RPG includes the Crypt of Ro premium map that can be used within the Endless RPG system to adventure without a DM or it can be exported and used as a tabletop map or with virtual tabletops like Roll20.
While Endless RPG is aimed at players who want to play D&D or Pathfinder alone or without a dungeon master, two tools make the app perfect for game masters who want a one-off or who want a full campaign where they focus on story and generate content.
Custom Dungeons allow you to pick the CR level, environment (dungeon, cave, etc.) and enemy (orcs, undead, demons, etc.) and can generate a single level or multiple level dungeon.
The DM Mode reveals the map and allows you to peek into encounters, treasure, traps, etc. to better plan out the adventure.
EXPORT TO VIRTUAL TABLETOPS (ROLL20, ETC) OR FOR OFFLINE USE
The DM Mode allows you to email the map of the dungeon level, which can help when trying to use the dungeon in Roll20 or other virtual tabletops or simply playing offline. You can email a legend with the map that will show all encounters, treasures, etc. You can also view the map full screen in order to take a screenshot.
QUICK BATTLE AND BATTLE MAPS FOR COMBAT
The app aids in keeping track of hit points with characters on the screen while exploring. When encountering creatures, the player has a choice of simply clearing the encounter (the monsters will be considered defeated), utilizing a Quick Combat mode, which is perfect on smartphones or for quick battles with 1 or 2 creatures, or a full Battle Map, which allows a more tactical way of resolving combat.
SUPPORTS 8 CHARACTERS WITH D&D 5TH EDITION AND PATHFINDER
The two most popular fantasy roleplaying systems are supported from levels 1-20. Players can run through the dungeon as a single character or a party of up to eight characters. A "character" can also include guard dogs, guard bears, or other non-standard creatures.
EXPERIENCE AND LOOT TABLES
The app will keep track of the monsters you have killed, including the over experience points and experience points by character. It will also track the treasure (magic items, coins, etc.) you have looted on your adventure.
HANDCRAFTED AND STITCHED TOGETHER
The app utilizes a method of stitching together pre-fabricated areas to give the look of a handcrafted area with the randomness of a generated dungeon. Monsters, treasure and traps are also randomly placed to keep adventurers on their toes.
PLAY SOLO OR IN A GROUP WITHOUT A DM
The idea behind the app is to give players the ability to play pen-and-paper roleplaying games without a dedicated dungeon master. For small groups, rotating who DMs the combat is a good way to share the burden. For DMs, the game can make a good one-off between or during campaigns.

Ratings and Reviews
Well worth the price (for weird people like me)
I didn’t have very high expectations of this app. I’d never heard of it before finding it in the App Store, but in a most uncharacteristic fashion I decided to give it a chance. I set the bar pretty low: if this app could amuse me for at least an hour, it would have been worth $2.00. It exceeded my expectations.
There are already plenty of fully automated RPG videogames on the market. If you want one of those, I don’t know how you ended up here, because statistically speaking, it’s unbelievably improbable. This app isn’t for you though, literally thousands of other apps are.
If you’re a tabletop RPG addict who is away from his RPing paraphernalia, armed with nothing but a smartphone, but reeeaalllyyy wants a way to satiate your craving to roll dice, use rulebooks, and write on a character sheet, even if you’re all alone, then this app is like instant coffee to a coffee drinker. Yes, you’d prefer Starbucks, but caffeine is caffeine.
To that end, you’ll also need a rule book app or pdf, a dice rolling app, and a character sheet app, which I already have. Moreover troubled individuals may not need a character sheet to know all of their stats... I think I have a problem.
I’m going to stop typing now so I can go back to killing imaginary skeletons and talking to people who don’t exist. At least I don’t have to make up the dungeon layouts and come up with encounters by myself anymore though.
Good for what it is!
Listen, if you thought this was a game in and of itself, it’s not. This lovely beast is a means by which people can play them some Tabletop RPG (you need paper and dice) without needing someone to run it (DM or GM depending on how you consume this type of game). You have to build your own character! That said, this little monkey is brilliant at setting up a random dungeon that everyone could play and, if you have Apple TV and a projector, everyone could see. While I still like being a DM, this might do for a night off. Would still like to see the ability to scroll the map without moving the character. Otherwise, too marks!
App has potential
I bought and messed around with this after seeing it mentioned by the author on reddit. While it’s certainly not very polished or swimming in features, it is good for generating and stocking a basic dungeon with monsters, treasure and traps.
I don't know if the adults I DM 5e for would appreciate these dungeons, but the kids I run “The Black Hack” for will get more than $.99 of fun out of it. Even though it comes with settings for 5e D&D snd Pathfinder only, I don't think I’ll have many if any problems using it with “The Black Hack” rules.
