SM4 Winter Foes



A Bestiary of Wicked Winter Enemies
Compatible with Most OSR Retro-Clones

Greetings adventurers and Game Masters!

I am pleased to release a game supplement detailing several wicked, wintry foes you may add to your Old School Renaissance (“OSR”) campaigns, to challenge your players during these cold dark winter months. Inside this tome you will find five new monsters: two undead and three extra-planar creatures. There is the undead barrow wight (6HD), the mighty snow demi-elemental (6-16HD), the terrifying frost giant ghost (10HD), the demonic ice mephit (4HD) and the suffocating cold ooze (5HD).

This supplement contains the complete OSR statistics which I personally designed to bring each of these beings to life in my campaign world of Terrans. They are, however, generic enough that they should be compatible with most OSR retroclones.

The original versions of these creatures first appeared in in the pages of my holiday and one one-shot adventures, and while I believe these adventures had a lot to offer, I also recognized many GMs running OSR games, especially the many of you who do not like to run pre-made scenarios and are into DiY campaigns, might enjoy having ready-made OSR version of these beasties to drop into their own campaigns at the holidays. So I decided to release these version of my favourite wintry foes for your personal use and enjoyment! They are easily modified to challenge players of any level by merely adjusting their hit dice and hit points.

I hope this supplement helps you liven-up your winter gaming sessions!

PLUS you also get a free copy of my latest Starry Knight Press Catalog, which has information on all of my modules and supplements, as well as maps of the known portions of my campaign world of Terrans, and bonus content (new monsters and magic items for OSR/5E) from my published books!

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.
