Frosty the Lich Lord

Recommended Posts

Working up the skeleton of the adventure I'm gonna run on Wednesday, using Frosty the Lich as the big bad at the end.
It's gonna be goofy!


He's killed some townsfolk "thumpity thump thump" and stolen the children and turned them into snow zombies (that look like snowmen).
It's a concentration spell, so if they can break his concentration they can free the kids. If they kill a few along the way...
Well... 

 

Before that though, there's the woods with Sam the Snowman (also evil, using the gladiator stat block) a treant (christmas tree), and some winter wolves.

 

There's also the "evil wizard" Hinkle's tower, but he's a pushover and a false lead, though they can get some info from him.

 

There's the greenhouse that's over run with mistletoe and poinsettia plants  (thorn and twig blights with poison/charm powers) and a pair of shambling mounds (piles of garland)...

 

Still trying to figure out how to work in Jack Frost and Heat Miser as a non-combat encounter...

Sounds like a blast! (Arctic blast, that is :lol: ) Are you using the stats from that Reddit post?

Yup. That's the plan. Might tweak it a bit.

I asked my players last night if they wanted to do a holiday themed adventure & they all said no. I guess it was do in part to Halloween one went way over then what I had planned. Plus, they want to play their normal characters more.

I don't usually run Holiday adventures, but as we just finished Storm King's Thunder, and we won't start Strand till next year, it's nice to be able to squeeze one in.

I think what factored into their choice was the 3 core guys I get every week have only played their characters a total of around 2 or 3 times before we started Death House & I gave them pregens for that. I totally understand as I wasn't sure if I wanted to run a AL holiday adventure I found.

 

The concept of the adventure was goofy holiday as the PCs had to stop some evil elves & a Jack Frost kinda character from taking out Santa & preventing him from delivering presents on whatever the Forgotten Realms equivalent of Christmas is. Again, it was a thought but they are enjoying Lost Mine of Pandelver, so I didn't care what they did.

 

Heck, they just leveled up to 3 last night.

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      Hey there! It's been awhile. I've painted a few things recently, but it's been sporadic. I have plenty of minis to paint, but have been fighting sometimes to find the mood to or to find time.
       
      Anyway! Personal crap aside, here is my rendition of the frost giant from the Nolzur's Marvelous Unpainted Miniatures line, which seems to be the same sculpt as the Harshnag from the Icons of the Realms series of pre painted minis.
       
      Enough of my blabbering, on with the pics!
       

       
      Unfortunately I didn't push the contrast a ton here. It's clear to see in hand, but it doesn't really show up in the photos all that well. Still good practice though. And he'll terrify my players all the same.

      About
        The Origins of the Lost Lands
      For almost 20 years, glimpses into the world of the Lost Lands have been revealed in the publications of Frog God Games and Necromancer Games. The Lost Lands contain locations now legendary in the annals of roleplaying, from the depths of the massive dungeons of Rappan Athuk, to the city of Bard’s Gate, the Desolation of Tsar, the Blight, the demon-tainted Sundered Lands, the chaotic tumult of the Borderland Provinces, and the fabled Northlands. These publications offered hints of the sweeping scope, deep history, and epic grandeur of the Lost Lands.  But only hints.
      For well over a decade, a Lost Lands campaign world has been our customers' most requested project...
      ...and the time of the Lost Lands has now arrived!
      The Primary Reward
      Over 42 years in the making, this is the definitive guide to the world of the Lost Lands!
      This massive volume includes the history of the Lost Lands, a wealth of detailed maps, cultural information about its nations and peoples, and a huge gazetteer containing descriptions of the world's countries, cities, waterways and geography. For the first time, readers can explore the length and breadth of the great continent of Akados, including regions never before described, and far Libynos, home of the Desert Kingdoms and many ancient cultures alien to the folk of Akados.
      The book weighs in at approximately 700 pages in full color, with maps by award-winning cartographers and beautiful, original artwork to place you directly into the world itself in all its glory and terror.
      Entirely system-neutral, the guide can be used with any game system you choose.
      The Lost Lands are the setting for a tremendous array of over 150 individual adventures and sourcebooks already published by Frog God Games and Necromancer Games, many providing statistics in multiple game systems. All of this material is available to provide an almost inexhaustible resource of ready-made adventures and epic quests! Future Frog God Games products set in the Lost Lands will be built into the ever-growing canon finally revealed in this volume.
      About 4000 example pages of Lost Lands Adventures Pictured Above A small sample of some of these already-existing adventures include Rappan Athuk, Sword of Air, Slumbering Tsar, Bard's Gate, Necropolis, Cyclopean Deeps, The Borderland Provinces, The Blight, and Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms.
      Authors of adventures which have, over two decades, explored the Lost Lands include Clark Peterson, Ed Greenwood, Bill Webb, Gary Gygax, Matt Finch, Jim Ward, Morten Braten, Jeff Harkness, John Stater, Bill Kenower, Nate Paul, Dennis Sustare, and Alex Kammer.
      The authors of the guide to the Lost Lands include Bill Webb, Greg Vaughan, Matt Finch, Vicki Potter, Pat Lawinger, Anthony Pryor, Rhiannon Louve, Mark Greenberg, Ken Spencer, Casey Christofferson, and Thom Wilson.

      Hi everyone, here is the wolf model from Ral Partha's TSR D&D 10-512 Monsters Boxed Set produced in 1992.
      I painted this one a while ago. It's a 25mm scale metal "lead" miniature that was sculpted by Richard Kerr.
