Kickstarter - First Edition Adventure Module A1 A Forgotten Evil (AD&D 1e Adventure)


Yes, you read that right. A Forgotten Evil is an AD&D 1e adventure (not endorsed or approved by WotC) which is kinda cool. Sure, they could have gone the OSRIC route but I'm guessing there was a preference to avoid the OGL.

So, what do you get for your pledge for a printed adventure?
The products are 8.5 x 11 saddle stitched booklets in black and white. The cover (unattached) is full color and wrapped around the booklet. Both come in a sealed polybag. For those who pledge at a level that includes illustration booklets, those will also be in the polybag.
Unattached cover. This is AD&D to me. The covers to most adventures double as a DM's shield for me back in the day.

Did I mention classic blue maps? Yep, got that too.

The prices are EXTREMELY reasonable. $5 for PDF, $10 for Print plus PDF. $20 id you want to add an encounter illustration booklet.  At $30 you add a print copy of F1, The Tomb of Rakoss the Undying (I've always love the cover and having it in print would be awesome - no mention if this level includes a copy of F1 in PDF - I always like PDFs with my printed adventures as it makes the maps easier to use with a VTT). $40 gets you an illustration booklet for F1. I'm not sure if the illustration booklets come in PDF, but I hope they do. Much easier than scanning the pieces to show to my online gaming groups.



As for the Risk and Challenges, this is what I like to see:
Both A Forgotten Evil and The Tomb of Rakoss the Undying are written, laid out and nearly ready to send to the printer with all illustrations and maps. Only the additional illustration booklets need to have the illustrations created and the booklets laid out. As such the risks are extremely low. We expect to be able to fulfill orders very soon (contingent on the printer's schedule) after successful funding of the project. 
Challenges include making sure the illustrators meet their deadlines for the illustration booklets and providing a quick turnaround of the proofs back to the printer.
Written and laid out, just waiting on art for illustration books. Nice.

I'm in.

  1. I am familiar with one of these gentlemen from the old WOTC forums. I really like the Rakoss module. Trying to decide backer level.

  2. Erik, The Tomb of Rakoss the Undying in PDF will remain free on DTRPG once updated. It's inclusion in the Kickstarter was to provide the print version as an exclusive. The illustrations booklets, being a Kickstarter exclusive as well will only be in print form, though I admit we hadn't considered PDF usage in VTTs. We'll have to think about what a PDF does to the exclusivity of the illustration booklets.

    1. PDFs of the illustration booklets now also part of the $20 and $40 dollar reward levels.

  6. I would not mind the new additional artwork in pdf as well for Virtual Table Top use !

    People will just scan them anyways & put them up on torrents & dropboxes !

    I was hoping for New Full Detail Color Maps, Character, NPC, & Monster tokens pack for the two modules for VTT use !

    Perhaps later on as an add-on pack for ~ $10-ish ?!
