Join the adventure as Art of the Genre revisits the various curses of Roslof Keep! This first part of a six part mega-campaign is based around experienced characters levels 10+, 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 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.
Folio #20 will introduce 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).
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.
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 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.
