Witches of Frostwyck


The ancient world of Harth is dying, but you’re going to die even sooner if you can’t escape from Frostwyck.

You’re lost in a frozen forest of deadly predators and mysterious recluses. Your only refuge is the tiny village of Frostwyck, where metal is rare and kindness is rarer. And there are worse things in the shadows than mere bloodthirsty beasts.

Witches haunt the groves of the north. Most keep to themselves, content to guard their secrets and powers. But one torments them all.

Dama Zhadna has cursed the village so that none can escape. And now you’re trapped here. You’re going to die here.

Unless you find a way to defeat the Witches of Frostwyck.

  • Players will confront a hostile wilderness and explore a small village full of deadly intrigue.
  • There are numerous NPCs as well as unique magical items and original monsters.


This product includes two separate PDF files, one for 5e and one for OSR-style games. This adventure was written first for 5e and then converted into an OSR-compatible version. In the OSR version, you will find (a few) 5e-isms and artifacts.  

 DM notes, location descriptions, NPC notes, dialogue prompts, stat blocks (now with descriptions!), original creatures, over 30 original treasures and magic items, and high-level maps.

I just wanted to comment that this is a fantastic product description and other RPG industry types reading it should take note! Pretty much any question the potential customer could have is answered in that informative description. It's a great format that others should emulate.

Thanks so much, Patrick! As a DM, I try to make my published adventures as clear and user-friendly as possible, and that includes the descriptions and notes. I hope you enjoy the campaign as much as the product description!

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.
