★ El Raja Key Archive DVD: The Collected Maps, Manuscripts & RPG Artifacts of Robert J. Kuntz ★

The El Raja Key Archive is an interactive, searchable, fully indexed, virtual museum of roleplaying game artifacts from the dawn of the Dungeons & Dragons game!

 

Contained within the Archive are over 1,000 high resolution scans of adventures, maps and keys, campaign notes, character sheets, and manuscripts from the Original Greyhawk, Kalibruhn, and Blackmoor Campaigns. That's right, from the very creation of Dungeons & Dragons!

 

Includes all maps & some keys for Rob's Castle El Raja Key, the dungeons where Gary Gygax cut his teeth as Mordenkainen; Rob's manuscript for his lost Dungeons & Dragons Supplement V: Kalibruhn; maps, keys, and notes for over 40 adventures from the Original Greyhawk and Kalibruhn Campaigns including, maps & some keys for 16 of Rob's Original Greyhawk Castle levels, the map for the first ever D&D demo, the Machine Level, at GenCon VII in 1974, and the map for the first ever D&D tournament, Sunken City, and notes, NPC cards, and adventure maps and keys for the Original City of Greyhawk!

 

Along with the high resolution images of these treasures is extensive historical commentary that is fully linked to our searchable index. The El Raja Key Archive uses your internet browser interface to navigate just like surfing the 'net. It can be used on virtually any computer that has a internet browser and a DVD drive (or optionally, a USB port).

 

In addition to the El Raja Key Archive, TLB Games also publishes Three Little Books Adventures, a line of smaller than digest-sized, "Little" adventure booklets that provide essential companion material for the complete, partial, and incomplete adventures found on the El Raja Key Archive DVD. However, since the full-color and sometimes quite large maps are on the Archive DVD, the modules themselves are more economical in size and cost.

The El Raja Key Archive has four different editions: Basic, Standard, Deluxe, and Collector's.


The Basic Edition is intended for the gamer who wants a chance to play or run some of the original adventures created for the World of Kalibruhn and Original Greyhawk Campaigns at the dawn of the Dungeons & Dragon phenomenon.


This edition comes with images of mostly maps with some keys and notes of nearly 40 original adventures and dungeon levels. A quarter of these are useable just as they were written during the founding days of roleplaying games for some old school gaming goodness! However, the El Raja Key Archive DVD realizes its full potential when used with our new Three Little Books Adventures line. These smaller-than-digest-sized, "Little" adventure booklets provide essential companion material for the complete, partial, and incomplete adventures found on the El Raja Key Archive DVD. However, since the full-color and sometimes quite large maps are on the Archive DVD, the modules themselves are economical in size and cost.

 

 

The Standard Edition is intended for the gamer who wants all of the adventure materials found on the Basic Edition but desires a little more of the flavor of the Kalibruhn and Original Greyhawk Campaigns, the expanded commentary, original PCs and NPCs, campaign notes, regional and detail maps, magic items, and many other heirlooms that will be indispensable in capturing the wonder of those early days.


This edition too is perfect for the designer, historian, and researcher, providing an incredibly comprehensive look at the way the game was played at this seminal time. In addition to the hundreds of pages of campaign materials mentioned above, the timelines, expanded commentary, historical documents, memoirs of game play, and resume of Rob's work, will prove to be an indispensable resource and all at your fingertips in one concise collection.

 

 

The Deluxe Edition is for the gamer, designer, historian, researcher, and collector! This edition contains everything on the Standard Edition but tucked inside the DVD case is a brand new, smaller-than-digest-sized adventure module K1 Sunken City: First Print by Rob Kuntz, the very first Dungeons & Dragons GenCon tournament moduleeverused at GenCon VIII in 1975! This is the first in a series of collectable modules designed to be compatible with the materials on the El Raja Key Archive. Also included is a K1 Sunken City: Deluxe Print with a different cover and an incredibly cool, all new encounter area inside: The Tower of Night! A mini-module in itself! This unique version of the module will never be offered separately and must be purchased as part of the Deluxe Edition of the Archive!

 


The Collector's Edition is for the collector extraordinaire! This edition contains everything found in the Standard Edition and Deluxe Edition but also includes an autographed and numbered K1 Sunken City: Collector's Print with a different cover and an incredibly cool, all new encounter area inside: The Tower of Night! Only 100 numbered and autographed Collector's Prints will ever be made! You will only be able to get this unique autographed and numbered version of the module with the Collector's Edition of the Archive!

These are part of our new Three Little Books Adventures line. These smaller than digest-sized, "Little" adventure booklets provide essential companion material for the complete, partial, and incomplete adventures found on the El Raja Key Archive. However, since the full-color and sometimes quite large maps are on the Archive DVD, the modules themselves are economical in size and cost. Despite these savings, our Three Little Books Adventures are printed with an old-school, offset printer, that matches the quality and trade dress of the classic TSR Hobbies adventure modules. Our sturdy cardstock outer covers, in addition to their beautiful art and graphics front and back, are separate and can stand up on their own to be used as a dice shield or to hide a small notebook for DM notes. Heck, even our TLB Games logo is old-school! Drawn by the late Jim Roslof in 1980 as a freelance submission, it was rejected by TSR and buried in Jim's personal files for the next 36 years. It was recently rescued from obscurity, re-inked, and, with the purchase of the rights from the Roslof estate, symbolizes a return to Old School gaming for the next generation.


We also plan to have premium, full-color print-outs of the maps available for purchase, including the larger poster-sized maps at 18 x 22 inches! Currently we have copies of the Original Greyhawk Castle, Bottle City map, a beautiful heavy-stock poster eminently suitable for framing. The printed image of the map measures 18.5 x 22 inches (slightly blown-up from the original 17.5 x 22) and the outer edge measures 22 x 27 inches. This dungeon map is a work of old school art and demonstrates the true genius of a master mega-dungeon cartographer!
