I’ve had the pleasure of working on The Folio for the past 5 years, and with each new adventure I keep coming up with more things I want to create for the betterment of dungeon adventuring. With The Curse of Roslof Keep, I’ve had the pleasure of designing a high level dungeon crawl, and Folio #22 will be the third installment of this particular dungeon.

Within it, I am taking on a ‘new look’ as I try to customize a level like nothing the players have encounter so far in any of the dungeons I’ve designed. I hope you will all help make this project not only a reality, but a huge success, because the more people we get to join the adventure, the more great stuff I can include!

Whatever the case, I’m truly excited to journey in Level Three of The Kasbah Dungeon and see what dastardly threats the Infernal Machine has in store for the players!

What is included in Folio #22?  This module will provide the adventurers with  access to Level 3 of the Kasbah Dungeon as well as a new monster that even threatens the existence of the Infernal Machine.  Dungeon details include 2D standard 'blue' hex maps as  well as fully 3D renderings of  Level 3.  It also features a fully removable stand-alone cover that can act as DM screen.     

Folio #20 & #21 establish the base for The Curse of Roslof Keep and provide its first two levels.

Who is this adventure for?: It will be based around  classic AD&D gaming mechanics, while also have 'grey' stat and  treasure blocks for 5th Edition D&D,  so it is easily playable in BOTH formats.  It has been designed for  6-8 characters, roughly levels 11 thru 13, and will include a Virtual  Table Top map without secret doors, traps, and numbers.

What are the 'Bridge' Mini-Adventure Trios?  There are 2 sets of mini-adventures, the first three help characters transition for the original Roslof Keep campaign to the new Kasbah Dungeon campaign.  The second three are set within the happenings of the Kasbah Dungeon and help add content to the first three levels of the dungeon.  They each have a map, and a 10-15 room dungeon that will add magic, experience, and content to the overall campaign arc.

What are all the other Folio products? The bulk of my Folio adventure series has  been in physical form and can be found at artofthegenre.com.   For the  purposes of some of the upper pledge levels, these previously  produced  adventures are offered at a substantial savings.  Thus far, there  have been 21 Folio standard removable cover adventures, and 5 hardcover Folio books  (3 compile and reprint the Folio campaigns, and 2 are gaming   supplements).  You can see more about these products in the video  below.  

For the Hardcover pledge, what are the 'Orange Spine' books?: These 'Complete' volume hardcovers include not only all the information from 6 Folio  adventure modules, but also 6 or more 'mini-adventure' supplements added for extra content, iconic character cards that are playable, and a  gazetteer supplement that defines the world the adventure takes place  in.  Also included is the Storyteller's Arcana, a 128 page DM & Player guide of my own tips and experiences in 30 years of gaming, and the Folio of Fiendish Monsters with 115 new monsters.  ALL these books are in in both AD&D and 5th Edition D&D formats.

Risks and challenges

Since 2012, Art of the Genre has worked exclusively on Kickstarter and run over 50 successful campaign, delivering 8 novels, 20 Folios, and many other small projects over that 6 year span.

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, however, life does sometimes have delays, and crowd-funding must understand that, but our track record should prove we always get out products out to our supporters as soon a humanly possible.
