Frostgrave: Fantasy Wargames in the Frozen City

Watermarked PDF

Amidst the frozen ruins of an ancient city, wizards battle in the hopes of discovering the treasures of a fallen empire. In this fantasy skirmish wargame, each player takes on the role of a wizard from one of ten schools of magic, and builds his band of followers. The wizard's apprentice will usually accompany his master, and more than a dozen other henchman types are available for hire, from lowly thugs to heavily armoured knights and stealthy thieves.

Wizards can expand their magical knowledge by unlocking ancient secrets and may learn up to 80 different spells. While individual games of Frostgrave are quick and can easily be played in an hour or two, it is by connecting them into an ongoing campaign that players will find the most enjoyment. The scenarios given in the book are merely the beginning of the limitless adventures that can be found amidst the ruins of the Frozen City.

Miniatures Wargames Magazine wrote, “For me, Frostgrave has a real flavour of the old school, fun tabletop adventuring that was prevalent when I first got into D&D… Recommended – especially for the money.”

The Garage Gamers blog says “… it looks to become THE fantasy skirmish campaign game, and rightly so… It is a must have for any fantasy gamer!”

In their play-through review, Wargames Illustrated, the world’s leading wargaming magazine, concluded, “… I urge those of us who remember the AD&D adventures of our youth, have ever read a fantasy novel or seen a fantasy movie, to seek out a copy of this tome and sally forth on the road to adventure!”

Agree with the other two commenters about the pricing of the PDF. You can get the hardcopy online for cheaper, not to mention getting the digital version from Kindle, GooglePlay, etc. much cheaper than here. Too bad, because I really prefer to get all my digital gaming stuff from RPGNow whenever possible.

I bought the hardcover for €20 at my local game store. Wouldn't mind to spend another €9 on a pdf (to use it with my tablet). But $20 is far too expensive for a digital copy.

Original electronic
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.
