Kickstarter - Retro 1E & 5E Fantasy Mini-Adventure Set

The Retro 1E & 5E Fantasy Mini-Adventure Set Kickstarter is "a triple mini-adventure bridge from Roslof Keep to The Curse of Roslof Campaigns in both 1E & 5E gaming formats."

By now, I expect most of The Tavern's readers know about "The Folio" - a series of adventures written for both 1e & 5e D&D. See, I can say that even if the Kickstarter can't ;)
What is the Folio? The Folio is a OSR inspired adventure path that incorporates both 1E and 5E Dungeons & Dragons mechanics. Currently, three full campaigns exist within its volumes including the six part Roslof Keep Campaign, the twin trilogies of The Complete Cities of Sorcery, and the six part island adventure campaign of The Complete White Ship.  That's 19 full Folio adventure and dozens of mini-adventures in three huge PDF super adventure volumes.  That's a lot of gaming!
So, what is this "Mini-Adventure Set"?
What are in the mini-adventures? Each mini-adventure is roughly 10 encounter points in a scenario that blends in with the main Folio adventure it corresponds to (in this case, the pre-adventure for the beginning of The Curse of Roslof Keep super-campaign). This includes maps, and statistics in both classic AD&D and 5th Edition D&D. However, these can also easily work as stand alone encounters for other ongoing campaigns.  They are designed for 4-6 characters from levels 10+. 
There are two days left in this seven day Kickstarter. It's about $400 short of its $3k goal. It's $15 for the trio of adventures in PDF, $40 for Print plus PDF. want it all - 18 prior releases and the 3 mini-adventures in PDF? 90 bucks. The price points aren't bad and the prior releases are high quality.


  1. I hope their Kickstarter works out. I've always been super happy with The Folio stuff.

  2. I'm fairly new to OSR and haven't heard of The Folio, could you please give me some more details?

    1. The Folio is an adventure path like Paizo puts out for Pathfinder, just for 5e and 1st ed rulesets. The quality is very high imho and they read very well. (I haven't had a chance to run them for a group) Awesome art without question.

    2. That sounds really interesting :) Do you have a link where it can be purchased that you'd be willing to share?

    3. Sorry, I was gone for most of the day. The site for the company is https://artofthegenre.com/

  3. Oh, there is no print for this KS, it's all pdf.
