Snow and Ice, Things Nasty and Nice


The arctic environment holds a mysterious atmosphere of danger and discovery for those who dare to settle there and those who venture to explore it. One can never be sure what lurks over that nearby snow drift, inside that dark cave, or under that frozen ice. Threats loom over the next hill, but treasures may also be found hidden among the seldom explored corners  of the harsh environment.

Snow and Ice, Things Nasty and Nice provides a collection of character backgrounds, modular encounters, creatures and NPCs, magical items, and maps for your arctic campaign. The features included work nicely with the Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden official D&D product or with any arctic adventure in your own game world. This product includes:

  • Four original arctic themed character backgrounds:

    • Ice Fisher

    • Wilderness Guide

    • Fur Trader

    • Reindeer Herder

  • Five original scalable modular encounters:

    • On Thin Ice - Cross a frozen river that might not be as safe as it looks.

    • White Out - Navigate the treacherous conditions of a severe blizzard.

    • Leader of the Pack - Hungry wolves work together to hunt their prey.

    • Ice Fishing Contest - Compete to catch the most and largest fish.

    • Falling Ice - Maneuver through a narrow hallway and dodge falling icicles.

  • Eight original NPCs and creatures.

  • Thirteen original magic items.

  • Five original encounter / battle maps

    • The ice cave holds unknown creatures and secrets.

    • The frozen river looks like it's solid enough to cross, but is it?

    • The tavern offers some shelter and comfort from the frigid conditions.

    • The forbidden woods are home to hungry and dangerous creatures.

    • The narrow ice tunnel directs travelers through a confined space.

I was excited to pick this up because of the winter-themed modular encounters. I love the idea of a fishing contest, and wanted some ideas for ice cracking or a blizzard encounter since the book ones are meh. However this book presents a lot of mechani [...]

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.
