Join the adventure as Art of the Genre revisits the various  curses of Roslof Keep!  This second part of a six part mega-campaign is  based around experienced characters levels 11+, and I've specially  designed the dungeon to breath life into those adventuring levels  without relying on old standards like giants, dragons, and constructs.  

The Curse of Roslof Keep Campaign  revolves around an adventuring company moving to the city of Tiefon,  capital of the great eastern power of Thalonia, where they will match  wits against other great adventuring companies as well as the  intelligent dungeon known as The Infernal Machine.  This dungeon is laid out in 6 levels, with a Folio dedicated to each one.

Folio #21 will provide the adventurers with access to Level 2 of the dungeon as well as new monsters and even gaming concepts in running a high level dungeon adventure.  Dungeon details include 2D standard 'blue' hex maps as  well as fully 3D renderings of Level 1.  A gazetteer will give  background on all the special events of Level 2 of the dungeon, and includes a new monster designed  specifically for this campaign.  It also features a fully removable  stand-alone cover, and two booklets (gazetteer & adventure).

As with all previous Folio adventures, this is written in classic AD&D mechanics, while also having D&D 5E stat blocks and adaptations as well.  You can check out what other Folios look like below! 

What is Roslof Keep? Roslof Keep is a six part mega-dungeon produced in 2015, and comprises Folios #1-#6.   It is based around an intelligent dungeon known as 'The Infernal  Machine' that has now spread to other cities with greater threats, thus  bringing about the events of The Curse of Roslof Keep adventure series.

What do Folio dungeons look like? Below you will see a internal Folio  removable cover dungeon, rendered in full 3D for easy use by the DM,  and well as defined in hex style 2D for mappers.  Rooms are well  described, and stats are provided for both AD&D and 5th Edition D&D formats.

What is The Complete Roslof Keep Campaign Hardcover? Produced in 2016, this 128 page compilation book includes all six Folios in the Roslof Keep Campaign  as well as 6 bonus mini-adventures that tie in with the set and a  Nameless Realms Races gazetteer, as well as the stats for the 7 Iconic  characters seen in the series.  It has an original cover by Jeff Easley,  and a classic 'orange spine' to go along with the TSR AD&D hardcovers of the 1980s.

What did I miss in Folio #20? The beginning level introduces characters to the setting, the  mysterious and ancient Kasbah of Tiefon, as well as the other companies  hired by the great houses to clear the magical dungeon that has suddenly  appeared beneath their streets.  Dungeon details include 2D standard  'blue' hex maps as well as fully 3D renderings of Level 1.  A gazetteer  will give background on the Infernal Machine and the city, as well as  the stakes that weigh on the characters, and includes a new monster  designed specifically for this campaign.  It also features a fully  removable stand-alone cover, and two booklets (gazetteer &  adventure).

What are 'Bridge' Mini-Adventures? These three 'throwback' style mini-adventures bridge the timeline between the close of The Roslof Keep Campaign, and the events of The Curse of Roslof Keep, allowing players to build on the adventure before it has even truly begun.

Risks and challenges

As a fantasy fiction imprint working exclusively on Kickstarter, Art of the Genre has produced and fulfilled 8 novels using this platform as well as delivering 17 Folios (including 2 other digital only Folios for a total of 19), and 2 compilation hardcovers early to all backers!

This is a personal passion project for all the authors and artists involved, so we are as anxious as our backers to see these volumes become a reality as quickly as possible.
