About this project
The Mask of Death
An Epic Quest for Five 9th Level Characters
The Quest for the Mask of Death begins in the city of Whitetower. Despite the occasional goblin incursion, the lands around Whitetower have known peace and prosperity under the reign of King Erasmus the Randomly Biased. This relative calm is shattered by the news of a powerful artifact falling into the hands of a wicked necromancer named Mort Kemnon. Kemnon has sworn to bring low the king and transform the land into a twisted reflection of his own evil god, Death himself...
Thanks to meeting our early target, we are able to add a few cool new things to the project!

- All backers will now receive an extra PDF featuring Lodge's hand-drawn dungeon maps and snarky notes
About the Module
Based on cult hit The Gamers: Dorkness Rising, this new roleplaying adventure module expands on the story of the film with an expanded adventure into the world of Fartherall. Play the characters from Dorkness Rising or your own party as you face a Goblin Totem, devious Priests, a miniature Death Demon, and even the mysterious artifact known only as the Mask of Death.
Compatible with the Pathfinder roleplaying system, the print version of the 48-page module will have a color cover, black-and-white interior, and traditional saddle stitching for the classic RPG module look and feel. The PDF version will feature a color cover and color interior.
About the Team
Designed by Kevin Mickelson, with contributions from Jimmy McMichael, from a screenplay by Matt Vancil and edited by indie game designer Brian Clements, this team has been thoroughly vetted by Zombie Orpheus Entertainment for their ability to write in complete sentences, use crayon when appropriate, and maintain the combination of irreverent humor and storytelling that Zombie Orpheus is known for.
Why This? Why Now?
If you're contributing to this campaign, you already know that we're getting ready to launch a huge Kickstarter campaign for our next Gamers film, The Gamers: Hands of Fate. You also have probably been asking yourself "Will I ever be able to get a copy of the Mask of Death module featured in Dorkness Rising?"
So this? This is our warm-up Gamers Kickstarter. It's a chance to get an awesome product out the door that our fans have been clamoring for since 2008. And by running this right now, we can have the printed product in hand for Gen Con 2012, where the cast of Dorkness will be on hand to sign everything in sight!
We're running this campaign for you. And because Kevin wrote a kick-ass gaming module. And because only you can try to kill Flynn the Bard more times than Scott C. Brown ever managed.
We are thrilled to have fans in so many corners of the globe. Due to increased shipping costs to the farthest reaches of the planet, please add the following amounts to your pledge to cover shipping:
Anywhere else on the planet: $12
Off-world: PDF only.
We will do our best to get the stars of the film, main members of Dead Gentlemen Productions and the author to autograph copies.
Yes! That's not all, though. This is an epic adventure as Lodge intended. Two dungeon crawls, ogres, juju wyverns, ass-jackals and, of course, battles with Mort Kemnon and his servant, Mort Agrippa. Oh, and nombies. Zinjas. Nombies. I don't know.
Yes! Character sheets and new Feats are included for Sir Osric, Luster (WILD!), Brother Silence, Daphne and Flynn the Fine.
