Eight Hoary Heroes Set to Brave the Bitter Cold!

Winter Heroes is our seventh set of 8 ready-to-play pregenerated 1st level characters created specifically to shine in a Witches of Winter Adventure Path but ideal for any campaign venturing into the marvelous mash-up of the fantastical and the futuristic! Ideal for use as allies, cohorts, long-running NPCs, or replacement player characters, Liz Courts brings you amazingly detailed and lushly developed characters including:

  • Brynla, half-orc druid of the green faith
  • Maja Tasker, halfling investigator sleuth
  • Pero, human summoner and his otherworldly protector, Drahu
  • Roelof, dwarf witch guardian of the ley lines
  • Stojan, snowborn elf two-handed fighter
  • Zakhar, snowborn elf oracle
  • Zuza Holt, human herald of the horn skald
  • and last but not least, the shadow-sneak Senka Featherfingers, fetchling rogue!

Built according to organized play specifications, using the 20-point-buy method and with scaling notes for 15-point builds, these characters are not just piles of statistics. Each one is as much about story as combat, with robust links built in to each other as well as the official Witches of Winter Adventure Path, though every one easily stands on its own in any setting where savage barbarians battle technological terrors. The crunch for every character more than measures up to its incredible flavor text, though, and when it’s time to throw down in combat none of these Winter Heroes will be stepping to the sidelines.

Each character includes a detailed backstory, roleplaying tips, special equipment, and links to the published campaign, including a campaign trait selection from the Witches of Winter Adventure Path player’s guide. Each also lists detailed level advancement information for their first few levels, with further suggestions for developing the character's long-term mechanical build. We haven't even mentioned the fantastic character portraits courtesy of Bob Greyvenstein, or the included foldable paper miniatures for every character!

If you are looking for terrific characters ready to delve deep into frozen fortresses and master the endless ice, grab this 34-page product today and Make Your Game Legendary!

This pdf is all about providing evocative pregens, primarily intended for use with the Reign of Winter AP and clocks in at 34 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page inside of front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 2 pages of how to use/introduction, 1 page advertisement, 1 page inside of back cover, 1 page back cover, leaving us with 25 pages of content, so let's take a look at those pregens!

First of all, how were they created? The characters herein, in default, are presented as 20-pt.-buy characters and the respective characters do have information pertaining 15-pt.-buy downscaling rules I very much appreciate. The pregens make rules of current PFRPG hardcovers as well as Paths of Prestige and the Inner Sea Bestiary. The respective characters also feature several roleplaying tips

The first of the characters herein would be Brynla, a scythe-wielding half-orc druidess of the green faith initiate archetype; bullied by her less than kind siblings and raised in humble origins, she is slowly moving towards becoming an acolyte and certainly, spring seems like a symbolic change of pace for her.

The second character in here, Maja Tasker, is an investigator sleuth of halfling descent, her smarts and investigations have unearthed that Kostchtchie's minions have been cooperating with a white witch of Irrisen - but why? How? The search for truth will lead her, provided she survives, towards truths unimagined as her parents still pose a mystery she needs to solve.

Pero, a human summoner, just 16 years old, was saved from raiders...and found a purring creature atop him, the eidolon was here, avatar of his power - ever since that, the young summoner has kept his high spirits and positive attitude and, in case you were wondering - yep, eidolon stats included.

Roelof, a male dwarven witch (ley line guardian), has forever been intrigued with the rare lore of odd arcana and studied ever since a key event - but when he tried to actually fulfill his life's dream, receive the training from the witches he so desperately craved, he was laughed off. Frustrated, he looked back to his childhood and realized his calling, singing to him from his past...and so he may yet become a dwarven, male winter witch or horizon walker...we'll see.

Senka Featherfingers, fetchling rogue, she has found a mysterious bracelet, but ever since then, she has been haunted by unfortunate occurrences, as winter itself seems to trail her very steps...but how and why, that will need to be shown.

Stojan would be a great candidate for those looking for a slightly more uncommon character, as the two-handed fighter is also a half-snowborn elf; here would be btw. as great a place as any to notice that the pregens do feature some serious interactions among themselves- Stojan's items, for example, contain items he is carrying for his brother and similarly, the backgrounds intersect.

Aforementioned brother would, just fyi, be the half snowborn elven battle oracle, was transformed into his current state by the same traumatic event - and like his brother, his seemingly carefree attitude is founded upon a desire to hide the scars of his past, here mixed with a fear that his brother may seek the relief of death.

The final character herein would be Zuza Holt - a herald of the horn skald, Zuza can be pictured as a female version of Conan - in love with a warm fire, pleasures of the flesh and blood-stirring songs, the greataxe-wilding beauty feels like a Cimmerian (or Kellid) warrior queen transported to Golarion, but one with a touching quest: She is looking for an elixir of sex change for her sister, for that is her heart's desire.

The pdf does feature a page of paper minis for the respective characters.


Editing and formatting are top-notch, I noticed no significant glitches. Layout adheres to a gorgeous two-column full-color standard and the 1-page artworks for the PCs make for glorious artworks. The pdf comes fully bookmarked for your convenience.

Liz Courts' Winter Heroes are an inspired collection of diverse characters that cover a lot of different roles and feature evocative angles. Power-level wise, they are efficient at their respective niches/tasks, but more importantly, their builds represent feasible and organically grown builds - the stats represent the stories and vice versa. With a diverse set of angles, AP leitmotifs reflected in backgrounds and generally great prose, this collection of pregens is well worth 5 stars + seal of approval.

Endzeitgeist out.

Not as gripping as others in the series unfortunately.


I'd have to say this is my least favorite in the AP pregen series that Legendary Games puts out. I just wasn't "grabbed" by the concepts as I was by others in the series. The summoners isn't too bad, and they usually don't turn up a lot in game products, but otherwise, i'd have to say a lot of meh.
