About

Hey all!  As I do my work here at Art of the Genre creating great Folio adventure and gaming content, I sometimes create things that don't work perfectly with what I actually had planned for a particular product.  In this case, I created a map I really loved, but it was just to big for one of my True Level Adventure modules, so I shelved it as I worked through other stuff.  However, I just kept coming back to it, and this story seed that had some similarities to one of my all-time favorite adventures, Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl, resonated in my mind.  While Glacial Rift was more for upper level characters, I couldn't help but feel that several of the monsters I'd designed for The Folio of Fiendish Monsters would be perfect for a lower level 'frost' adventure, and this map could house them.  Couple that with an absolutely outstanding and hilarious Jim Holloway snow encounter cover (thanks Jim!) and I had to put it together.

So, long story short, I dusted off the old Folio Digital Quarterly format I'd used in 2016-17, and decided to do a full fantasy version that could feature my new map.  If anyone out there would like a cool (no pun intended), frost based, adventure for a lower level party, then this one is for you.

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 1st through 4th.  

What is in this Folio Digital Quarterly? This features a small write-up of the encounter setting (although I'm making it easy to 'place' anywhere you like that is cold), and will have a 32 room dungeon (seen below) with everything a DM needs to run a great AD&D or 5th Edition adventure.  

Can you kind of see why I just had to use this map?

What are all the other Folio products? Although this is a purely digital product, 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 in their PDF formats.  Thus far, there have been 20 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.

Risks and challenges

Since 2012, Art of the Genre has worked exclusively on Kickstarter and run nearly 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.
