Illfrost Bondage Teaser

With the recent release of Illfrost:Bondage, we thought we give you a little peek at the module, starting with the Introduction:

INTRODUCTION
In the century that has passed since settling into the eastern continent of Lannithir, the four kingdoms of men have seen their share of struggle and conflict.  Through their continued growth and expansion they have discovered many ancient ruins of a time long past.  It was within one such set of these ruins that an expedition of explorers from Kazdim uncovered, and released, an unspeakable horror.  A dread so unimaginable, that the ancients themselves imprisoned it over a thousand years ago.  This evil has a name… Necrath, the Ice Duke.

In the decade and a half that has passed since this wicked scourge was loosed upon the land, strange, dark, and violent events have taken place.  Sinister books and scrolls of vile evil and black magic have been discovered, and have twisted the minds of those foolish enough to read them.  Raiding parties of wittershin have set out from the mountains to wreak havoc and destruction upon men.  These assaults were followed by a full scale war led by the mighty race of rephaim, from whom the conflict was so named, the War of the Giants.

The alliance of Tuanna, Draigtir, and Pohja was formed while Kazdim stood aside and looked on.  For two blood shedding years this campaign raged as the brave nations of men fought together, but continued to yield ground to their aggressors.  Oddly enough, Kazdim was neither threatened nor invaded by the enemy, a fact raising great suspicion and distrust by the alliance.

Low on reinforcements, supplies, and morale, the alliance came to the sobering realization that they now faced utter annihilation.   Then, just when all hope was thought to be lost, a strange and foreign army appeared on the battle field and swiftly attacked the enemy’s flank.  This allowed the alliance time to regroup and drive the opposition back into the mountains.  As quickly as this foreign army appeared and turned the tide of war, they disappeared from the field creating great mystery and legend.

It has been seven years since the War of the Giants ended, and the nations of men have slowly been recovering from their staggering losses.  A keep has been constructed to maintain vigil over the mountain pass, should the enemy ever decide to rear its ugly head again.  All would appear to be calm, for now.  But appearances are deceiving, for deep within the mountains that same evil so recently released, is stirring yet again.

Illfrost: Bondage” represents the first step into the Illfrost Adventure Path, which will ultimately span 30 levels.  This adventure is designed for five 1st level PCs, and will quickly introduce them to this unique and harsh campaign setting by starting them off as slaves.
