The Generic Mod III is a Keen 3 mod by Levellord released in 2005. It is one of the few one-level mods that contains a boss.

Although consisting of more than one level this mod is usually considered a one-level mod as the focus in a single, rather large, level. The second level is the boss and is completed in the usual manner. It also stars a new player character based on the Keen fan Xky Rauh who transforms into 'Raumfahrer Rolf' a character originally created by Bill Watterson.

Story

Commander Keen is captured by the forces of the evil 'Ringman'. Russian Xky Rauh notices this on his 'Teleotachyon remitter'. Quickly hacking Ringman's PC, Xky discovers that Ringman has built an ice palace on the planet Fridgidd and is planning to destroy the universe with it! Acting quickly, Xky springs into action.

His parents were out on the town; his babysitter had been drugged to sleep and his older brother was tied up in the basement. Grabbing his brothers softball helmet and his handy Villian technologies raygun, Xky transforms into...

Raumfahrer Rolf! Defender of the Russian bit of Earth!

Rushing out to his secret clubhouse Rolf leaps into his Vodka-with-borsh Macrorocket and plots a direct course for Fridgidd. As Earth disappears into the nothingness of space, Rolf has heads towards his destination.
