Dungeons consist of a network of rooms, containing various types of monsters based on the theme of the dungeon. The last room will contain one or more boss enemies, which may drop special items. These items may be considered as inferior, or extremely useful.
To reach a dungeon, it is necessary to kill certain enemies, which will randomly or systematically open the entrance to that dungeon. Any player can enter to fight the monsters inside, usually by clicking “Enter” or using the interact key when standing on an entrance.
Some dungeons have a multi-stage layout with portals connecting different stages. Details of these are described on the individual dungeon pages.
All portals stay open for 30 seconds before vanishing, except for the Locked Wine Cellar Portal which will remain for two minutes if not opened. An unlocked Wine Cellar portal remains open indefinitely.
Passing through the exit portal of most dungeons results in a completion statistic being counted on that player’s character. The Tunnel Rat fame bonus is awarded to characters that have completed all the requisite Tunnel Rat dungeons. These are indicated in the tables below. Not every dungeon tracks a completion stat - the dungeons that have no functioning counter are indicated with NC. Some dungeons have no completion/exit portal, these are indicated by NP.

Two minutes after the realm closes, all players within the realm (not in dungeons) will be transported to Oryx’s Castle, which consists of multiple areas. None of these are required for the Tunnel Rat fame bonus.
