The Horrors of Frostbite Isle



You are stranded in a lonely mountain hut with a bunch of strangers. A blizzard rages outside. You will have to leave soon.

Winter knows no mercy.

Can you gather enough food and furs to survive the journey? Can you navigate your way towards shelter before night falls on the icy plains? Will you eat or be eaten as you face the creatures that roam Frostbite Isle?

Deadly secrets.

Dire situations can make companions from strangers. But don’t be too quick to trust, and don’t sleep too sound; a warm coat may shield you from snow and wind, but steel and hearts can be colder yet.

No roads to walk.

The snow erases all assumptions of where your path should lead. Do you head home? Do you find another? The snow lies thick and wide, covering the land like a blank page, ready to hear your story.

This is a wild-west, survival-themed adventure. It’s a “sandbox” with no hard goals, rather the adventure is in the journey. In this one, your party will have to deal with numerous hazards that many DMs and players breeze past such as extreme col [...]

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.
