$6.99

The tomb of an ancient hero, lost in the tangled depths of the woods. A ring of standing stones, guarded by the sinister Drune cult. A fairy princess who watches with ageless patience from beyond the veil of the mortal. A forgotten treasure that holds the key to her heart.

Winter's Daughter is a romantic fairy-tale dungeon adventure set in the creepy old forest of Dolmenwood.

  • Suitable for characters of 1st to 3rd level.
  • Encompasses woodland, tomb, and fairy otherworld—all in one handy package!
  • Keyed in a quick-reference, bullet point format.
  • Statted for Old-School Essentials (B/X), usable with any vintage adventure game.
  • Illustrated by the otherworldly Mish Scott.
  • Cartography by the mycotic Karl Stjernberg.
Winter's Daughter was awarded the coveted "The Best" rating by Bryce Lynch of tenfootpole.org!

Winter's Daughter was nominated for two 2019 ENnie awards (Best Adventure and Best Cover Art)!

Deluxe print version: A deluxe hardcover edition of this adventure is available from the Necrotic Gnome publisher website (link in the sidebar).
See Questing Beast's full video review of the hardcover edition below!

While this adventure is written for the Dolmenwood campaign setting, it can easily be placed in any other setting where one might expect to encounter icy fairies and rings of ancient standing stones.


Also available for the 5th Edition rules.

Planning on running this one for a group of smaller kids as their first look at an rpg. The fairy tale atmosphere is pretty perfect for that kinda stuff.

(I am gonna excise the human sacrifice. They're 8 year olds and it's a church function)

Wonderful! Yeah, I can understand dropping the first encounter, under those circumstances ;)

It's all good. Wrote a group of vaguely breakfast club inspired goblins who are arguing about wedding invitations, namely where they buried theirs

Please add a preview that isn't just an unlabeled map. You guys do great work but a new customer isn't going to purchase anything based on a preview like that.

Thanks for pointing that out! It's a technical error. We're trying to fix it.

I can't review this because I got it through the Necrotic Gnome site, but I really like this and look forward to running it. I found the layout and information design very readable.

The print version is available from the Necrotic Gnome shop (i.e. our own store, not at DriveThru). See the link above.

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.
