ANS3 Blacktoe Glacier

Suggested Price $1.99

Evil broods in the cold north...

To the northwest of Faerûn lies the virtually unexplored continent of Anchôromé. In its northern tip lies a land of endless ice where the beautiful but fierce snow elves battle for territory with the proud urskan bear folk.

All the while an elemental evil rises within the mountains...

Adventure in the Frozen North 

Blacktoe Glacier was given its name because of the very real effects its frozen white expanse has on the extremities. Frostbite is a real threat, and even the native inhabitants have slowly moved away from its original name of Wootenai.

Blacktoe Glacier is home to the enigmatic snow elves, the polar bear folk known as urskans, snow goblins, elementals and far too many others to name.

But there is powerful magic here, and there is threat that is rising from the great mountain range found in its center most region. Are the elementals planning an attack? Their archomental lord Cryonax has certainly made no secret in the past about bringing an ice age to the world once again.

What is in Here?

Inside this product, you will find a detailed description of Blacktoe/Wootenai Glacier, an overview of its inhabitants, a map of the glacier, its history, locations of interest, and its faiths.

In addition, you may find use from its new characters and magic even if you don't run or bring your campaign to the glacier itself.

Included are:

  • Six Environmental Hazards
  • Eleven magical forms of snow and ice
  • One new playable race (urskan) and a subrace (snow elves)
  • Subclasses known as the anagakok (wizards), frostrager (barbarian), and stormsinger (bard)
  • Thirty-five new spells!
  • Six new magical items
  • Twelve new monsters

Much of the material in the book has updated the 3.5E supplement Frostburn!

Hi - FYI this looks really interesting but I can barely read it as the lag in it really bad. Just scrolling to the next page takes a REALLY long time. I get about half way through before Adobe reader gives me an out of memory error. It's 250 MB in size and I think you should probably look into optimizing it. Not sure why its that large as its only 42 pages. For comparison I have a 550 page PDF that is only 100 MB with a lot of images in it. Not sure if everything in there are images instead of text? It's hard to tell because it's so laggy but I can't select any text, if you are using all images instead of text it would explain the issue.

I just downloaded a copy to test this and noticed the same thing. I’ll do a little research, make some repairs and get back with an update ASAP. Thank you very much for calling it to my attention. This should be resolved within a few days.

Works better than the initial file, but still wants to bog down around page 13 or so. Still getting an error a page not wanting to "draw," but it does eventually show up if you scroll away and then back.

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.
