100 Snow and Ice Encounters - Supplement for Zweihander RPG


This is a collection of 100 different events and encounters that characters could have whilst travelling through snow and icebound regions. Some of the encounters are most suited to polar regions and those lands nearest to them, others could be located in snowy mountains or perhaps simply during a heavy winter. Some of the encounters are odd and some are potentially hazardous. They can be used to enliven otherwise boring travel, or perhaps even be a source of adventure hooks.

This PDF supports Adobe layers and the page backgrounds and images can be disabled to make printing easier.

Here are some sample results:

  • By the shore of some open water is an upside-down kayak made from sealskins over a whalebone frame. The kayak will take two, and there are two single paddles, also made from whalebone, resting on the kayak's side. The owners of the kayak cannot be seen.
  • Carved from a huge block of ice is a statue of a man in armour. The statue is 20' tall and appears to have only recently been made as it lacks any signs of melting.
  • Clouds appear on the horizon and rapidly approach the party. When they arrive, the wrap the characters in a howling blizzard. Visibility drops to almost nothing and only by touch can other characters and creatures be found. The blizzard will dump several feet of snow whilst it lasts and quickly making shelter is advisable (see Extreme Weather in the Hazards & Healing chapter of the ZWEIHÄNDER: Revised Core Rulebook).
  • Cracking noises come from an ice-covered river. The ice on top of the river starts breaking apart and the river starts flowing freely once more.
  • Cut into the side of a glacier is a tunnel 10' in diameter, 3' above the ground. The sides of the tunnel are perfectly smooth and it leads deep into the ice. As the tunnel would be distorted when the glacier moves (a (Routine +10%) Education Test to confirm), the fact that it is still perfectly straight suggests that it hasn't been here that long.

Two pages are the front and rear covers and one page is ads.

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.
