A tileset consists of tiles that are designed on a uniform grid size so that the tiles all fit and work seamlessly together. In game design, for example, tiles from a tileset can be arranged and put together to form larger maps.

For this challenge, the goal is to build a tileset consisting of tiles that can be put together to create a dungeon. This will allow other creators to easily build a dungeon just by putting together the tiles.
