A few weeks back you guys helped me buy a new massage table for school by commissioning me. It was a huge help and I’m back again hoping to alleviate some of my household bills by doing more art while I look for more work. If you’re interested please email me at Thank you so much! Below are higher res pictures so you can see what you would get.

A towering glacier rises above the clouds in the northern tip of the continent, its summit unknown even to the gaggle of nomads and hunters that wander the surrounding glacial wasteland. A solid mountain of ice, it provides clear and cool water to the rivers and lakes that dot the countryside. At its highest point, a grand silver city sleeps on an expansive plateau, silently ruled by an ancient emperor languishing in the throes of undeath. For years now, religious groups and pilgrims have heard an unknown voice calling them to the summit of the Great Glacier, but so few have ever seen the top, all stories of its mythical treasures and dangers are mere legend.
It is the warm season, and an Arcane or Divine spellcaster in your party has felt the undeniable, overwhelming urge to answer the voice that booms down from beyond the haze which surrounds the mountaintop. It is nearly a two week trek up the brutal face of the glacier, fraught with wild animals, ancient monsters, angry forces of frozen nature, and the ever present threat of starvation, but the voice from the glacier promises power and wealth beyond measure.

A small village rests nestled within a cozy forest clearing, surrounded by a nearly perfect ring of treeline. Ancient rituals were performed here once, to appease the forests spirits and allow the small population there to thrive. Lately, however, the village has felt an air of uneasiness. The treeline seems to encroach on the village, the forest creeping closer on all sides as if to slowly overrun the sparse wooden cabins and tents. The ritual is long lost to legend, now, and only spotty folk tales remain in the minds of the village elders to hint at the nature of this ancient appeasement.

10 More Winter Encounters – 2-Minute Tabletop:

Come cool off with 10 More Winter Encounters by Troy, with free battle maps included! They’re system-agnostic and packed with more flavor than a spit-roasted snow hare:

Such encounters as…

  • Rising from snow and ice is the petrified remains of a ship. Its crew is similarly frozen, but still animate.
  • A storm blew over a camp of travelers in the night. A shapeshifter has used the obscurement to infiltrate their ranks.
  • A snow witch stands in the tundra, constructing a castle of ice for herself. She was not expecting company.

10 Snow Encounters

Troy, my brother and aspiring writer, just released another 10 snowy encounter primers on our blog! Here is a brief preview…

  • An orc patrol of unknown allegiance is spotted nearby. Trolls can be seen stalking them and are moments from catching them off-guard.
  • A cabin sits alone in the snow, nestled against the mountain’s foot. It appears long-abandoned but ghostly inhabitants still whisper from the shadows.
  • An extravagant aurora fills the sky. It is colorful, beautiful, and mesmerizing. It is a perfect distraction for goblin thieves.
  • The party finds a camp of travelers with damaged gear and supplies. They are friendly and make every attempt to hide the bodies that they have buried beneath them.
  • Intermittent snowstorms barrage the party, obscuring their vision and slowing their pace. Faeries dance invisibly within the storms, subtly moving the party as each one passes…

Troy goes into more detail in the article. Please check it out!
