Winter Descends on Dragon Pass!

When the child Rolf goes missing after a blizzard, his parents Rastolf and Serla grow frantic. They come to the village of Apple Lane begging for help from any who will listen. They come seeking any who will brave the wind and snow of winter to find a little boy. They come seeking adventurers.

The search will lead adventurers to a mysterious cave, known to locals as the Throat of Winter for the howling winds which blow forth. Inside, they face a terror from before the Dawn—Krampus. In this Gloranthan take on Scandinavian myth, the adventurers will find their bravery and Loyalty tested as they decide how best to protect Apple Lane from the demon’s predation.

This site-based adventure is intended to provide one to three sessions of RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha play for four to six beginning to intermediate adventurers. While it is integrated into the Colymar campaign provided in Chaosium’s Gamemaster Screen Pack, this adventure is designed for use in any Dragon Pass campaign.

WHAT DO THE REVIEWS SAY?

"A very well made scenario. ... I ran the adventure as an Heroquest for the first session of a new group and we had a lot of fun." — Manuel M., DriveThruRPG Customer

This winter adventure has a lot of play value. Aftet the initial use, the central demon can come back for subsequent winters if you wish. My players have gotten used to the winter threat, and indeed this past RQ winter they missed it as I had other adventures to give them.

Dear Conrad.
I am a Japanese fan of RuneQuest Glorantha, and my name is Kazuki Nakamura.I have purchased and read your book "The Throat of Winter". I would like to translate it into Japanese and distribute it, can you give me permission? I would like to include it in the Jonstown Compendium under your name. I have already translated and published "The Duel at Dangerford" and "Blue Moon, White Moon". Please consider it.
Yours sincerely.

I have a question: does Cold condition on p.4 refer to Cold Protection (RQG p.161)?

The Cold condition is in addition to the cold weather rules in the RuneQuest core rules. It tries to reflect my own experience with winter weather in Minnesota with a penalty reflecting increased numbness and lack of mobility the longer one is exposed to very cold temperatures.

Since you’re at the Electrum level, have you considered a PoD for this title?

I have! I threw up a poll on the RuneQuest group for Facebook around when it earned Electrum. I asked if people were interested in a POD edition. In general, the response indicated that folks preferred I spend my time on other projects, so I've chosen not to move in that direction. If interest changes, of course, I'd love to produce one.

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.
