Welcome to Dungeon!

This is where I put everything that is related to the operation of the Perishable Press website. The name “Dungeon” started as a joke back in 2005 (based on the old Black Tiger video game), and just kinda stuck around, mostly because I am too lazy to change it to something else. Here you will find everything from software and plugins used to official site policy and statistics. Plus a whole lot of other stuff, like where I’ve been published, online friends, guest posts, validation links and more. So lurk around a bit and learn a discover some of the inner workings of Perishable Press..
