Chapter 1: "The Snows of Summer"
by Neil Spicer
The Reign of Winter Adventure Path begins with an exciting new adventure from RPG Superstar winner Neil Spicer! Every 100 years, the Witch Queen Baba Yaga returns to the nation of Irrisen to place a new daughter on the throne, but this time, something has gone wrong. Far to the south, winter cloaks the forest near the village of Heldren with summer snows. The heroes venture into the wood and discover a magical portal to the frozen land of Irrisen, whose supernatural winter will soon engulf all of Golarion unless they can discover the fate of the otherworldly witch Baba Yaga—a quest that will take them through snowbound Irrisen to even stranger lands beyond.
“The Snows of Summer” is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 1st-level characters. This volume kicks off the new Reign of Winter Adventure Path, and includes a gazetteer of the villages of Heldren and Waldsby, details on the cultural and magical legacies of Irrisen, and several new monsters in the Pathfinder Bestiary. Author Kevin Andrew Murphy launches a new Pathfinder Journal novella in this exciting volume of the Pathfinder Adventure Path!
This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path launches the Reign of Winter Adventure Path and includes:
“The Snows of Summer,” a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 1st-level characters, by Neil Spicer.
A gazetteer of two villages—one in Taldor and the other in wintry Irrisen—to help flesh out the characters’ environs, by Rob McCreary.
A look into Irrisen’s legacies and mysteries GMs can use for this campaign, written and compiled by Rob McCreary.

Four new monsters, by Neil Spicer and James Wilber.
The PCs are dealing with a bigger problem (perhaps the return of Choral), or the Bandit Council. The synopsis suggests that the only the one small town is effected by the strange weather, so maybe the mayor of Tatzlford or Oleg's or Varnhold (choose the smallest town in the PC's kingdom) asks for volunteers to find answers.
Josef Vissarianovich: "Na zdarovya tovarich* Seoni! That was very nice of you to blast those white counter-revolutionaries into the Caspian Sea. I'm afraid we'll still have to put your friend Kyra against the wall, though. The people's dictatorship has no room for old religious superstitions, even ones from another planet who seem to be real."
And thus the history of 20th century Eastern Europe turned out a lot nicer than in the real world.
*No idea how those words are usually transcribed into English.
thanks block knight, yeah I've seen the trailer and it does have some inspiration on my idea. I'm thinking maybe have him be some sort of paladin and his helpers be gnome fighter's with craftsman skills.
I choose gnomes for his helpers because a) elves in Galorian don't fit the character need and b) the personality of fun-loving helpers seems to fit.
Dwarf for Santa, because i feel that the jolly belly, red face, and beard fit the character. plus Dwarves are also craftsman as well.
I'm currently running the Carrion Crown AP with one of our groups. We are almost done with the first book and I've been reading ahead. I just finished reading "Ashes at Dawn" today, so I am very happy to see this bit of news. :) I've enjoyed "Ashes at Dawn" tremendously, and look forward to "The Snows of Summer".
