With this special bonus content Kickstarter we are trying to finish up these three mini-adventures to expand on the events that will take place in between Folio #21 & Folio #22. We also hope that if you are simply looking for some cool dungeon encounters for characters level 10+, these adventures will fill that void.
What are in the mini-adventures? Each mini-adventure is roughly 10 encounter points in a scenario that blends in with the main Folio adventure it corresponds to (in this case, we are hoping to 'bridge' certain scenario points within the Kasbah Dungeon from The Curse of Roslof Keep campaign). This includes maps, and statistics in both classic AD&D and 5th Edition D&D. However, these can also easily work as stand alone encounters for other ongoing campaigns. They are designed for 4-6 characters from levels 10+.
What is Behind the Amber Door? In the first level of the Kasbah Dungeon a single door was held with a magical shield of amber energy, but now the characters have a chance to open it and find out what the final secrets the first floor of the dungeon has to offer...
What is 10 Steps Down? Level 2 of the Kasbah Dungeon also has an amber door, and this one might hold a secret to the undoing of the Infernal Machine itself. This is yet another chance for experience and glory before the characters make their way to the third level of the dungeon.
What is A Secret Respite? Everyone knows that the Kasbah Dungeon is magical, and that the Infernal Machine is always creating new and devious things to test players, but is it possible that the dungeon also takes pity on those that delve its depths? In this small encounter section, a new type of dungeon section become available to the characters, assuming they choose to partake.
What are in Folio #20 & Folio #21? These are two full adventures that include a gazetteer section and adventure section. They are based in original AD&D format with 5th Edition D&D stat blocks, so they can be played in both systems. They have both 2D 'Blue' hex maps as well as full 3D graphic art dungeons, and they comprise the first 2 levels of the 6 level Kasbah Dungeon campaign. These modules are built for 6 characters, levels 10+.
What were the 1st Bridge trio of mini-adventures? These three mini-adventures bridged the timeline between the original Roslof Keep dungeon and the new Kasbah Dungeon, allowing the DM to transition old characters into the new setting while getting a bit of a preview to what they will be expecting.
What is the Folio? The Folio is a OSR inspired adventure path that incorporates both 1E and 5E Dungeons & Dragons mechanics. Currently, three full campaigns exist within its volumes including the six part Roslof Keep Campaign, the twin trilogies of The Complete Cities of Sorcery, and the six part island adventure campaign of The Complete White Ship. That's 19 full Folio adventure and dozens of mini-adventures in three huge PDF super adventure volumes. That's a lot of gaming!
What is a 'Complete' set? The Complete books are compiled editions (including bonus mini-adventures and gaming supplements) that give a DM everything they need to play the entire campaign with ease.
What are the dungeons like graphically? Each mini-adventure comes with a 2D hex map, and the larger Folio adventures come with 3D graphic layouts as well as the 2D versions.
