The Terrible Yule Cat (5e CC OSE)


It's the most Orcus time of the year! A new Yuletide horror is upon us, as Frog God Games presents an adversary for your use from Icelandic yule myth. The Terrible Yule Cat is herein detailed for Fifth Edition (5e), Castles & Crusades, and Old-School Essentials role-playing games. FREE for your holiday cheer!

From the forthcoming release Beware the Yule Cat, which will offer 60 pages of dark adventure inspired by the folklore of Iceland!

You all know the cat of Christmas
— that cat was huge and fat.
No one knew where he came from
nor where he was at.

Night is falling across the frozen plains of the Northlands. It's Yule Eve, but you're tired, hungry, and footsore. Ahead lies the village of Köldhorn — Cold Corners in the Common tongue — where you are sure to find warmth, food, and shelter, especially on this festive night. But upon arrival you find the streets deserted, and the villagers hidden behind locked doors. Soon, you realize that you've inadvertently found yourselves in the middle of a generations-long struggle between the people of Cold Corners and the evil fae troll Grýla, her husband Leppalúði, their sons the mischievous Jólasveinar — or Yule Lads — and worst of all her favorite pet, the fierce Jólakötturinn, better known as the Yule Cat.

Is Frog God not making modules for their own Swords & Wizardry system anymore?

The systems for each book when published are determined by a variety of logistical reasons. Mythmere Games has the IP rights for S&W. We're currently looking to support 5e/ Old School Essentials/ Castles and Crusades/OSR going forward.

Product Information
File Size:
7.2 MB
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.
