Hello
In Arcadia Quest Inferno, except the box with the " Poison Dragon "( fire, frost and chaos as well ), is there any campaign with a fully coop mode ?
Same question for the classic Arcadia Quest and Beyond The grave : is there an official campaign included in these boxes ?

Only the dragon battles are coöp. The rest of the game, including all campaigns ever published, is fully competitive.

Moreover, this is one of the worst games to try to modify to coöp with a variant, because the entire game is built around an intense PvP experience.

This. The entire beauty of this game is that it's competitive. Any modifying of the game to be coop would be entirely changing the game. You might as well just buy another coop game.

Yup, I recommend Zombicide: Black Plague or - if you like Chibis - Super Dungeon Explore.

Or Masmorra, which is part of the Arcadia universe, and has a decent co-op mode as well as a couple of competitive modes.

Fully coop is not that hard to be made but it all comes to the scenario creation. You can do something simple:

1) If a hero dies a third time he is out of the scenario
2) If the players lose 5 heroes they lose the scenario
3) Include in the monsters reaction that they will attack at any time they are adjacent to a hero that is attacking another monster (whether that monster is adjacent or not) so you won t want to have several monsters around you when you can only choose one.
4) Increase the life of the bosses in the scenarios by the level of the scenario multiplied by the number of players. Add extra life for each killed hero and even more life for each hero that won´t return due to rule number 1).

But you need well crafted scenarios that make it hard for the heroes to reach their goals. Make them so heroes are forced to work together a lot to defeat the odds. Maybe even play with a timer (for example a number of rounds the heroes have to accoplish the goal).

This game can be easily adapted to coop play. The Dragons are the guide.

I am sure the next expansion will probably have official coop rules for all scenarios.
