I've been remiss on covering a number of Kickstarters that are currently funding that I find myself backing (or about to back). Expect to see Kickstarters covered here and on The Tavern's YouTube Channel over the next few days.
So, today I'm covering the latest release in the Folio Series. I've always enjoyed the various Folio releases, of which I have a nearly complete collection between print and PDF. The detachable covers on the print version just make my heart yearn for the gaming days of my youth in the 80s.
The current Kickstarter is Folio #29 The Ogre Arena Gaming Adventure! (for 1e & 5e). It's 5 bucks in PDF, 25 in Print plus PDF, and 15 bucks for the 4 parts currently released in PDF. If you want ALL of the Folio releases as of right now, which is 29 PDFs of the main run and 7 from the Folio's Black Label selection, it's 70 bucks in PDF. That is a Holy Shit level bargain!
Join the adventure as Art of the Genre continues to add content to its first new mega-dungeon in over three years! This forth part of a six phase mega-campaign is based around 2nd-4th level characters in a completely revolutionary setting. I've specially designed the dungeon to breathe new life into those adventuring levels while allowing the DM the ability to create incredible story arcs with old favorite monsters like lizardmen, giant serpents, huge toads, and even early fantasy RPG video game monsters inspired from classic crawls like Wizardry and Bard's Tale!
The Virgin Mine setting revolves around an adventuring company moving into the wild jungles ruins around the Imperial Capital city of Nextyaria. Here, they will match wits against other treasure-seeking adventuring companies as well as the intelligent dungeon that hosts relic treasures with nearly unlimited power.
Folio #29 will introduce characters to the next section of the massive Virgin Mine Dungeon, the Ogre Arena!. Unlike normal dungeons, this one carries various mysteries and wrinkles that 'bend' the rules of character advancement, and strategy will need to be employed as the party learns the ropes within the Virgin Mine Dungeon setting. Dungeon details include 2D standard hex maps as well as fully 3D renderings of The Howling Dungeon section of The Virgin Mine. A gazetteer section will give background on the new rules and the exterior camps and companies. Several new monsters lurk within as well as new magical treasure. It also features a fully removable and stand-alone cover in perfect OSR tradition that acts as a DM Screen!
