The Great Trial: Frostbite


CZRPG logo

"The thrill that precedes the Trial start is always welcome. I keep wondering if the participants will be up to my expections, how well they will fare in this challenge. Unfortunately, they often disappoint. Still, the thrill is there. Every time."

- Aenor Gleenwith

"This is truly one of the most exciting set pieces I've come across. [...] Zeuch is a true Master of the Dungeon!" - Curse of Sebs

Will your party survive the frostbite Frostbite Gauntlet?

A sequel to The Great Trial, this module is a highly challenging arctic ordeal focused on exploration and combat, planned for four 10th-level characters. The adventure can be also run as a one-shot or as part of any campaign for that level. For more information on The Great Trial, see the note at the end of this page.

The module is divided in two parts:

Chapter 1

The gauntlet itself: the party will be taken to a demi-plane against their will and from there, they have a simple goal: leave. However, a powerful undead guardian will make things difficult. The party needs to find some of the sources of power of Deathwings, the guardian, to weaken it and have a chance against it.

Chapter 2

After leaving, the group will arrive at a cave complex made of stone and ice. An ancient dracolich named Icingdeath will chase the party, squeezing through the tight tunnels, always on the party's heels.

Once out, the party is greeted by Aenor and offered their rewards.


In this module, you will find:

  • 42 pages
  • 17 new creatures
  • 4 new magic items
  • 12 unique maps (28 in total with their different versions)

The Great Trial

The original module is meant for 4 players starting at 7th-level, ending at 10th-level. It's a 3 tier dungeon, filled with mean traps, interesting puzzles and of course, combat. The last dungeon level is actually a tropical wilderness demi-plane filled with dinosaurs!

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.
