The book looks amazing. Any plans for a print version?

Most, if not all, the art is from the Rime of the Frostmaiden book - so you could find it there

Unfortunately, DMsGuild has pared back the amount of POD offerings and this isn't on the list for print.

Are there maps included? Do many of the encounters have maps?
Customer avatar
Ginny L October 24, 2020 3:15 am UTC
As the encounters are designed to be dropped in at almost any point in your campaign, most of them are general enough that you can use any map you have available and so there are no maps in this product.

Any plans for a FG version?

At this point, we have no plans for a FG conversion, sorry!

That's a shame, I only tend to buy content that also has an FG conversion these days. I hope you'll reconsider at some point, as this looks great!

Me too. Too much work to convert on the fly. I'd rather pay a premium for a good FG version than a lower price for a PDF that I have to rip apart.

Are these AL legal?

Until they are added to the ALCC, or an AL Admin comes in here and deems them legal, then assume they aren't.

What Paul said. I have submitted it for review to become AL-legal, but the admins have been rather busy and have a backlog of stuff to review. I will update the listing accordingly if it does get AL approval.

A month and a half later, is there any word on whether these encounters will become AL legal?

If they'll be legal in less than a month for now, we can use them in an event.

Still no update, but I'll reach out again as I'm just as eager to have this join the list of seasonal offerings as you are.

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.
