For those of you who have participated in my Savage Marches campaign (or simply been following the thread here about it), this will not just be more of the same. Hellfrost is more of a "heroic" setting and this test adventure will be set up to allow the player characters to exercise their social skills as well as their combat skills. Plus, there won't be any going door-to-door looting abandoned houses.AN ENDLESS WINTER IS COMING.
The history of Rassilon is bloody. From the frozen far north, beyond the civilized lands with their rolling hills and forests, arose a mighty army of frost giants, ice devils, Hellfrost dragons, and fearsome orcs, servants all of the ice god Thrym. So began the terrible Blizzard War and the downfall of the mighty empires of man.
Five hundred years later the races of the southern lands may have won the war, but they suffer its legacy still. For five centuries the winters have grown steadily longer and colder. Huge swathes of the land of Rassilon are permanently covered in ice and snow, and even the temperate lands are not spared the misery of failed harvests, deadly winters, and the dreaded Hellfrost wind.
But winter is not the only danger. A mere 30 years ago, magic, once the civilized races’ most potent weapon, suddenly began to fail. The Siphoning, an effect of unknown origin, has made magic an unpredictable ally.
Welcome to the world of Rassilon.
Welcome to the Hellfrost!
I plan to run Hellfrost later this month or early next month and you can sign up at http://www.doodle.com/pzv7m8apzgrtc346 I think 5-6 players would be ideal, but more or fewer will still work.
In addition to signing up on the doodle, please also post a general idea here of the type of character you'd like to play. All characters should be Saxa (the setting's viking-equivalents) and one may be either a skald, a priest, or a paladin. If there are 5+ players, then the group can have both a skald and a priest/paladin.
If you have the Hellfrost Player's Guide, feel free to create your own character and PM it to me, otherwise I'll create a character based on your description of what you want.
