Introducing Mini-Dungeon Monthly, the new monthly RPG zine from AAW Games!

Each issue features five brand-new Mini-Dungeon adventures for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition with a PDF delivered to your inbox every month along with the option to print at cost!

Mini-Dungeon Monthly in print! Print level backers get the PDF and obtain access to purchase the print version of the zine at cost + shipping & handling from DriveThruRPG.com (roughly $2.50+S&H). We print in the USA and UK using OneBookShelf/Lightning Source.

AAW Games has been publishing adventures, maps, and more since 2012, producing hundreds of products including fan favorites such as the Mini-Dungeon Tome, Underworld Races & Classes, Rise of the Drow, and Into the Wintery Gale. 

With your help, we look forward to creating this new and exciting zine!

Inspired by classic titles like Judges Guild and Alarums & Excursions, Kickstarter is inviting creators to launch their own RPG-inspired zines in February 2019.

Inside each issue of Mini-Dungeon Monthly are five short adventures with brand new illustrations by Mates Laurentiu and cartography by Justin Andrew Mason. We offer a wide range of adventures for a variety of levels. In issue one characters will climb into a roc's nest to fight hatchlings, try to survive in a crypt filled with vampires, confront a mendacious naga, stop a general from obtaining unfathomable power, and figure out what horrific otherworldly thing is making people go insane.  

  •  Jonathan G. Nelson – Publisher, Editor, Art Director, Adventure Author
  •  Justin Andrew Mason – Adventure Author, Cartographer, Graphic Designer, Kickstarter Designer, App Developer
  •  Thomas Baumbach – Adventure Author, Layout Lead
  •  Stephen Yeardly – Adventure Author
  •  Mates Laurentiu – Lead Artist, Cover Artist
  • + Guest Authors & Artists...

If we pass our first stretch goal, full-color VTT maps will be added to the backer rewards. Download a sample of these maps using the link above!

VTT Map Technical Specifications – Virtual tabletop maps for all five adventures will be provided. The maps are provided in JPG format @ 600 dpi high-resolution; sized to 5100 pixels x 3300 pixels. This resolution is also sufficient for creating 1-inch miniature-scale personal printouts of each map at 34” x 22”. 

There will be five versions of each adventure map including the following: 

  •  Black-and-white line-drawn version of the map printed in the zine
  •  Color clean VTT map (no icons, no room numbers, no grids)
  •  Color player map (with icons, no room numbers, with grids, no secrets shown)
  •  Color clean player map (with icons, no room numbers, no grids, no secrets shown)
  •  Color GM map (with icons, with room numbers, with grids, with secrets shown)

If an adventure map has hidden areas, an additional clean VTT map will be included as well (one map showing the secrets, the other with them seamlessly hidden).

Series continue through numerous issues but are 100% playable alone. 

Umbravania is a dark realm of gothic horror. It exists in between the tides of time, beneath the shadows, and apart from the ordinary world. The mysterious fog that links the normal world with the terrors within is a mystery, but all who enter know they have come to a place of tilted reality. 

Survive is a series which pushes characters to their limits. These are extreme, survival of the fittest scenarios best suited for one-offs, convention style play, or for players who really want to be challenged. Warning: This series has the potential to cause character death!

The book that started it all, the Mini-Dungeon Tome, is available for a reduced price only through this Kickstarter. We've nearly sold out but have reserved just enough copies to give backers the chance to obtain one as an add-on while we wait 4 months for the second printing to arrive. You may increase your pledge by the amount listed or simply add on the rewards in BackerKit after the Kickstarter has concluded. 

To include an add-on item as part of your pledge, do the following steps: 

1. Click on the “Manage Your Pledge” button.

2. Click the “Change Your Pledge” button.

3. Adjust the amount of your pledge by adding the funds to cover the cost of the add-on item you want to include. 

4. Click on the "Continue" button after adding funds, and then click the “Confirm” button. 

That’s all you need to do! When the campaign ends we will send a survey out to all backers where you will have the option to indicate which add-on item you provided additional funds to receive.
