A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 1st to 5th level characters (Tiers: 1–2, 4–5).

Skelg the Ripper, envoy from the Land of the Linnorm Kings, lies wasting in his villa on the outskirts of Absalom. A frigid curse followed Skelg from his northern homeland and grips his bearish heart in its frosty embrace. As the bizarre freezing ailment pushes Skelg to the brink of death, the Society dispatches you and your fellow Pathfinders to uncover the secrets of the freezing curse before Absalom falls to its icy grip.

Written by Craig Shackleton

This scenario is designed for play in Pathfinder Society Organized Play, but can easily be adapted for use with any world. This scenario is compliant with the Open Game License (OGL) and is suitable for use with the 3.5 edition of the world’s most popular fantasy roleplaying game.

A memorable love story.

****( )

This had to get a good review from me as it is a great example of an author using the Golarion setting to create a attention-grabbing love story. The characters are memorable, the hook for the PCs to assist the clients is top-notch and there's a real sense of urgency to the adventure, mixed in with some interesting artifact mechanics and magical mystery solving.


-The son of the deceased Lord has some powerful spells and tactics up his sleeve - this was a memorable fight with a great map.
-The write-up for the Lantern is very well handled and creates a fantastic toy for the PCs to play with. Love to see more of this.
-Great use of the Irrisen/Linnorm dynamics.


-Unless the PCs are utter bastards, there is no way the 'boss fight' of this scenario would ever trigger. Who would try to kill the Lady Love? Why? I'd have liked to see more interesting tactics from the Undead.
-The fight with the two guards outside the manor in Absalom is a bit of a snooze fest. Even with four players, this wouldn't be able to challenge anyone.
-It'd have been nice to use the Lantern against more Linnorm-worshipping selfish bastards. Eat my artifact curse, vikings!

I had fun with this one. It was one of the scenarios that had a compelling story that made me care about getting to the end. The characters were memorable and there was a real sense of heroism at the completion of the game. I like when Pathfinder lets me pretend to be a hero. :) My character was a newbie level 1 hiding behind the level 3-5 people so I don't remember a whole lot about combat, other than that I was only mildly effective, but nobody seemed angry or confused and nobody got murdered.

I had a good time. I think some of the mechanics of things were wonky and needed to be redone, but nothing game breaking.

Very interesting and fun

Player Review

I enjoyed it a lot. I felt that it offered a decent spread of playstyles and encounters, and also offered everyone a chance at the spotlight. It also, in my opinion, had a very epic feel to it, involving an artifact-like item, and going far outside the rules (in a good way!!!) for story and plot elements.

This scenario also left me feeling like I (my character) had actually accomplished something in the world, and done something worthy of being written about. In many ways it has a classic movie sort of feel, the hero rising off into the sunset after all is done.

I honestly wish more scenarios worked under a similar model, and this honestly really shows the strengths and draws of an organization like the Pathfinder Society (beyond just thugs, graverobbers and above-the-law).

This scenario is fairly easy to succeed in, but I feel like there are levels and depths of success, and also unlocking more background that go beyond that for those characters that want that sort of thing. The Faction missions, (that I have seen) all seem very well written and very in-character with their organizations goals and beliefs.



A very good scenario with well-balanced combat (at least in the low tier) and a complicated, flexible story. I wish more were like this.
