Session Zero Issue 5 - The Frost Giant's Gambit

Suggested Price $2.00

An adventure for Dungeon World

The frost giant Valkimar is sending waves of hobgoblins into the countryside to capture people for use as chess pieces on a giant chess board. When they succeed at capturing your Queen and a rival kingdom’s bishop all out war between the two kingdoms becomes a real threat to the realm as each holds the other responsible.

A high stakes game of Giant’s Chess awaits. Try to beat Valkimar at his own game, and suffer the  consequences if you can’t!

"It's inhabiting a sweet spot between DW minimalism and D&D module goodness! It gives the GM everything they need to run a game even if the players aren't seasoned collaborative story-gamers but leaves plenty of room to make stuff up on the fly." - Logan Howard, Sword Breaker zine

“This has so much replay value! I’d run this in a heartbeat.” - Ray Otus, Plundergrounds zine

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.
