Forged in Blood and Snow


To outsiders, Jonatela is a grim land, its castles forbidding, the life of its people harsh and lacking in luxury. But this is an illusion; the Jonatings are as passionate a people now as they always were, fond of song and dance, living every moment to its fullest potential. In this lies the strength of its warriors, the practicality of its wizards, and even the determination of its peasants.

For every Jonating, no matter their station, knows that the world is harsh and unforgiving. Struggle is a fact of life, and those that submit fall by the wayside and are lost. Battle is commonplace, and pestilence and famine always wait in the wings, ready to sow their own discord.

Much of Jonatela remains untamed. Its forests are dark and haunted, the southern hills desolate and home only to monsters. Evil spirits seek to kill the unwary, demons wait to seduce the weak into wrongdoing. Even the winters are deathly cold, fit only for the werewolves that howl in the snowy wastes.

This is a land of peril and dark passions. A land forged in blood and snow.

Written for HeroQuest, Forged in Blood and Snow is a follow up to The Book of Glorious Joy, expanding that non-canonical view of the Gloranthan West to the Kingdom of Jonatela. Note that it was written before the Argan Argar Atlas and thus maps and locations may differ from those in that and later official publications.

Rule System(s)
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.
