    Kuntz launches new company with DVD Archive project

    Here's a repost of Paul Stormberg's announcement over on Dragonsfoot (which includes nicer pictures and such than mine):

    Paul J. Stormberg wrote:
    Howdy All,

    An incredible opportunity has arisen for Dungeons & Dragons players, fans, and historians. Rob Kuntz is releasing an Archive of his collected roleplaying game maps and manuscripts through TLB Games (http://www.TLBgames.com). Here is the introduction to their store front which is now open:

    [centre][/centre]

    TLB Games was founded in association with Three Line Studio (http://www.threelinestudio.com) to produce the El Raja Key Archive. The Archive contains a treasury of high resolution images of materials from the collection of game designer Rob Kuntz. Rob was there when Dungeons & Dragons was created and served for years as Gary Gygax's own Dungeon Master as well as his co-DM for the Original Greyhawk Campaign. Now you have the opportunity of a lifetime to peek behind the veil of history to play and discover what it was like in those early days of D&D through the artifacts of time.

    [centre][/centre]

    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!

    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! 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).

    [centre][/centre]

    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. However, since the full-color and sometimes quite large maps are on the Archive, the modules themselves are more economical in size and cost.

    Futures Bright,

    Paul
