Murder in the Shielding Peaks

Make a trek over a glacier in the middle of a blizzard to prove your innocence in this adventure for fifth edition!

This adventure sets your players on a trail of blood, leading them onto a glacier just as chilling as the supernatural murder mystery they are about to uncover. The silent snow here covers many ancient secrets, testing their survival and investigation skills — and, not to mention, their sanity. The adventurers must keep hunting for answers, before the cold and horror of the Aurora Fields, the glacier beyond the mountains, overwhelm them.

Murder in the Shielding Peaks is designed for three-to-seven 4th-level to 6th-level characters and is optimized for five characters with an average party level (APL) of 5. Characters outside of this level range cannot participate in this adventure.

In addition to the full-color 40-page adventure you will also receive:

  • A printer-friendly version
  • High-Res Hole in the Mountain Inn map
  • High-Res Chasm of Forever map
  • High-Res Den of Broken Antlers map
  • High-Res Glacier Encounter map
  • Instructions for using the maps in your favorite Virtual Tabletop application
  • Handout of Nerbeia's Ledger of Debts

Murder in the Shielding Peaks was playtested extensively and the current version is the result of the feedback of all participating players.

I played through this adventure as a player and I truly enjoyed it. There were a lot of awesome locations and interesting NPCs. In particular, the boss fight was really cool, with a lot of interesting mechanics that made it more than just basic combat [...]

A wonderfully imaginative, cold, and gruesome adventure. One best for those who would lean into the atmosphere and bring light and compassion to counter a strengthening evil! Those who jump straight into combat before seeking understanding risk furth [...]

Really enjoying this adventure so far. The party is currently at 2/3rds of the adventure and they are having a blast. They went back a forth a bit, to research previous locations and the book provides plenty of random encounters to keep the story engag [...]

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.
