Questionably-useful cutout shapes to assist a DM in designing a dungeon (along with their companion Monster & Treasure Assortment sets).  Best used with miniatures.

Dungeon Geomorphs Set One:  Basic Dungeon by Gary Gygax
Dungeon Geomorphs Set Two:  Caves & Caverns by Gary and Ernie Gygax
Dungeon Geomorphs Set Three:  Lower Dungeons by Gary Gygax
Dungeon Geomorphs Sets One-Three by Gary Gygax

The first three individual sets were later combined into the compilation Dungeon Geomorphs Sets One-Three.  They were followed up by the Outdoor Geomorphs.

Interestingly, the individual sets featured sample dungeon sections that were not included in the later compilation.  As contributor Paul Stormberg notes, "These are classic Gygax ones: secret temples, lost demon gods, weird magic items, never again reproduced monsters, NPC's, etc.  In my opinion, one of the great unnoticed treasures of Greyhawk knowledge!"  Gary Gygax has since clarified that this information did not come from his Castle Greyhawk dungeon, but was rather created specifically for the Dungeon Geomorphs.  Thanks to Bill Silvey for this info.
