Far to the north lies a realm that the seasons never touch, where snow lies heavy on the ground all year and winter never releases its icy grip. A country ruled by White Witches with hearts as cold as the north wind—the daughters of the Queen of Witches herself, Baba Yaga—and supported on the backs of a conquered, enslaved people. A place where frost giants and hateful fey are respected citizens, and winter wolves stalk the streets in human form. This is the nation of Irrisen, a land cloaked in unceasing winter for 1,400 years.

Irrisen, Land of Eternal Winter presents a comprehensive overview of this frigid kingdom, where the imperious control of the ruling class stifles the residents just as strongly as the harsh, never-ending winter.

Inside this book, you'll find:

  • A detailed exploration of the nation of Irrisen, from the icy fey stronghold of Feyfrost to the frozen forest of Hoarwood, including an extensive timeline of Irrisen's history and notes on traditional Irriseni holidays.
  • Detailed maps of Irrisen's six provinces and half a dozen of its most important towns and cities, from Queen Elvanna's capital of Whitethrone to the industrial town of Morozny.
  • Complete stat blocks for each of Irrisen's provinces and their capitals, detailing major settlements and notable denizens.
  • Numerous sites and events where adventure can be found, as well as hazards and afflictions that threaten visitors to these snowy lands.
  • A bestiary of new monsters and NPCs from Irrisen, such as Baba Yaga's Three Riders, the boreal creature template, and sample winter witches.

Irrisen, Land of Eternal Winter is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting.

There are no new spells in this book. However, there are some specific Irriseni cold spells in Inner Sea Magic and some new cold spells (and a new winter oracle mystery!) in People of the North.

I'm so happy to hear this! Oracle is one of my favorite all time classes!


Wow, nice. And congrats to Mike on being in the freelancing RPG industry finally. Contributor indeed. I missed TotIM. Will have to take a look at it.

Spoiler:
I bought a Dungeon lot of of you on ebay in the olden days and still have the signed Mud Sorcerer's Tomb Issue and another rejected adventure outline. Small world...

Awwww yeah, I made another cover!

You need to be on more covers. Provided that winter wolf doesn't have dinner, that is.

Amazon is always off, and late.

Paizo is more accurate because they get the books first.

I think it's a brilliant tactic. After that first cover everybody believes you belong to a frontline class and nobody will expect you to sneak up behind gulp excuse me, I think I wrote too much...

Hate to be a tease, but I think folks are going to be blown away by the artwork in this publication. The portraits especially are the finest stuff I've seen in Paizo's products, hands down. Hats off to the artist responsible; s/he captured concepts perfectly. Huzzah!

Witches? Damn! I knew I forgot to include something.


Which makes me sad...


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I really like some of these new monsters...
Baba Yaga's three fey riders(black, red, white)
Guardian Doll(witch spy doll with a knife that paralyzes)
Khala(three headed, winged, snake-like dragon that breaths cold)
Ved(Giant with a wind based breath weapon)
Sentinel Huts(construct creatures that trap people and drive them mad)
Boreal creature temple(Annis Hag, Manticore, Wolf)

So, it's a great book. I love it. I really do. There's gonna be a 5-star review.

But, dear beloved Paizo. When you copy-paste Polish words and names into Golarion, please double check the grammar. It costs nothing, and makes one vitriolic bag of teeth (and one red dragon, O HAI DREJK!) happy. You got Czarny Las right, but Nadzieja Lato should be Nadzieja Lata. Yes, I know, our grammar can give Japanese a run for its money in complexity and obscurity, but still... ;-)

My bad for employing Google Translate. It translates Nadzieja Lato as "Hope Summer," while Nadzieja Lata translates as "Hope Years."

Forgive me, Bag o' Teeth. Your English will always be better than my Polish. ; )

All is forgiven, but the next time you are any other Paizo writer/freelancer gets to tangle with Polish names: we're just a click away and always willing to help.

Yeah it shows like that when the do the check to see if there is money in the card used to pay. You get access to the PDF's when the product actually ships.

Quick browse through of the book, looks amazing. It has a great Slavic vibe to that I really dig.

Silver Crusade

Lots of great stuff popping out even at a glance.

Not an ideal location to grow up, apparently.

"Baptism by ice..." shudder


So I just got my download (YAY)

Anyway, only had time to breeze through the Bestiary, but where do the Ved come from. The Khala is from Bulgarian myth, but I am not having much luck identifying the origin of the Ved. Ved sounds like a name that should be something from folklore/myth.

You're absolutely right. I found this doing research on general slavic folklore. The ved has its origins in northern Croatia...

You should see what they did to the blodeuwedd.

Putting a Welsh creature in 'open plains and prairies'!

We don't have any open plains and prairies anywhere in the entire country! It's like making merfolk protectors of the desert!

Well there is a nice flat expanse at millennium stadium!


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game, Tales Subscriber

Robert Lazzaretti is credited with the cartography. These maps aren't just maps: they really are works of art. I mean seriously beautiful! He did a spectacular job and deserves applause.


Despite my love for all things north... ice, snow, etc... I didn't like this book as much as I did Linnorm Kings. That said, I would put it at number two on my favorites list....

I have a feeling if Mammoth Lords book comes out, it may place 3rd.

What I really want is a map showing the tundra between the Inner Sea region and the Crown of the Wold.

OK, what you do is, you take a blank piece of white paper...

...and you have your map!

Anyway, I recognize the three riders from some slavic story I heard once, but don't recall all the details... They represent different times of day, right?

Well, I know second place on my favorites isn't bad.. but I do want to point out my love for the cartography.

That'd be an ice-cap. Tundras are more like this, or this (during the summer, at least).
