Selected as a Featured Product in the April 10 DM's Guild newsletter.

Trailblazers of the North

Jump aboard a sleigh and join the adventure!

This supplement includes detailed descriptions of eight intrepid NPCs for your games set in the icy North of the Forgotten Realms.

These NPCs work equally well with several D&D Storylines, such as Storm King's Thunder, Tyranny of Dragons or Princes of the Apocalypse.

Meet such stalwart adventurers as Maddie Red, a legendary musher; Sleetstrider, a goliath expedition leader; and Quinella Shears, a fearless half-orc trader accompanied by her she-cub companion Antonia.

In addition to a character illustration, each entry has a description of the NPC's background; an "at a glance" reference for their appearance, personality and motivation; tips on how the DM might bring them to life at the table; and a suggested list of trade goods.

The supplement includes the latest Current Clack, rumors and adventure hooks that can jump start an adventure in the Savage Frontier. There is also a map of the North keyed with all the important locations.

Rumors abound. Reliable rumors? Who knows? That's the way it's always been with the Current Clack.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
