You can find descriptions of real life castle dungeons here.
You can also find a Dungeons and Dragons dungeon room descriptor here.
Here are some gamebook descriptions
From Forest of Doom:
The narrow path continues to cut its way through the tangled forest. Strange animal cries and noises echo through the trees. At last the path widens to approximately a metre across. Soon you arrive at a moss covered wooden signpost, on top of which sits a large crow. The arms of the signpost read ‘North’ and ‘East’…
From Scorpion Swamp:
Here are examples of gamebook worlds.
There is not a Fabled Lands encyclopedia or atlas yet, but since the gamebooks let you explore every nook and cranny of the Harkuna, maybe one isn’t needed. You could say that Harkun is split into twelve different settings (one for each planned book) and you will get to read about them further from the RPG sourcebooks that will be released.
Magnamund (from Lone Wolf).
Magnamund is the richly detailed world where the Lone Wolf gamebook series (and RPG) is set.
Titan (from Fighting Fantasy)

A larger version is here.
Titan is where most of the Fighting Fantasy books are set. It is split into three very different continents.
You can also buy a re-released Titan which has a lot of information of the world.
Orb has appeared in several gamebook series with very different rules and settings. It is a very rich world to explore and seems quite underrated to me. For more information on Orb, you can find the Encyclopedia of Orb on the Outspaced Gamebook Shrine.

Up until now, I had had to make the links by publishing the blog post, then copying the URL and then editing the links in later. However, I found this helpful guide on how to determine your blog post titles in advance, so I’ve done that this time. I hope I’ve written them out correctly.
