When Winter Came To Skedemosse

Selected Option:

When Winter Came To Skedemosse is an adventure written for traditional roleplaying games and is fully compatible with Old-School Essentials

The scenario is a historical low-fantasy setting set on the island Öland, during the Scandinavian Iron-Age (the Vendel Period)

Within you will find 42 pages of Iron Age goodness! A hex description with many interesting placesmonsters and people to explore and meet. Use them as is or break them appart and place in your own campaign. You can drop the whole hex into most any fantasy setting and have it work well as is!

The setting is a “low-fantasy historical” setting. Trying to mimic not how the Scandinavian Iron-Age really was, but rather how the world might have been perceived at the time:

  • The gods were real
  • There were things, sentient things, hiding in the wood, in the ancient barrows, in the mountains and under the waves
  • Runes held real power
  • Your ancestors did conspire to protect you

There are also notes on how to make your OSE experience more flavorful when playing in the Scandinavian vendel period. 

Beautiful cartography by Paths Peculiar (Niklas Wistedt) and cover art by David Seymore.

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.
