With this Kickstarter we will be launching Art of the Genre's new True Level Adventure line of products.  These will provide everything a DM needs to complete a single level of experience for characters in both 1E AD&D and 5E D&D formats.   

What are in the True Level Adventures? We will provide maps, encounters, treasure, and NPCs that will drive a mini-story through a single level of character experience.  Remember, we are designing these for ease of use by the DM, so you can enjoy the gaming day without having to worry about story arcs, subplots, and of course experience calculations! 

Everything a DM will need to get characters from 1st to 2nd level, with no more calculations!

Why True Level? These adventures aren't meant to be epic, but instead 'plug and play' in your own sandbox.  They were created to assist DM's at all character levels when you need a side adventure, or just want to increase character levels for the purposes of other campaigns.  

Everything a DM will need to take characters from 2nd to 3rd level!

How do you calculate the experience, especially for AD&D? This is a great question, especially considering the sliding experience point system of AD&D.  How can a Barbarian go up a level when they need sometimes three times the experience of another character class?  I've built in a system that provides a 'base' experience point total for AD&D, and if you, as the DM, don't feel comfortable giving a level to a Barbarian at the same time you give one to a Thief, then you can use the base experience point total as a reward.  This reward will be enough to grant a single level to most AD&D classes.  

Everything that a DM will need to take characters from 3rd to 4th level.

What kind of maps are included? We will be providing 'blue' hex maps with each adventure, but will provide the option for 3D maps in our stretch goals.

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 19 Folios early to all backers, and dozens of mini-adventures and other gaming supplements!

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
