"I sometimes try to tempt casual players and gamers into the elusive mysteries of roleplaying games during the holidays, and what better for that than a simple (silly?) one-shot.Here it is, a visit to the goddess Winterwhite. Convince her to make the winter gentle this year.EDIT: Added a really big, roughly 600 x 700 mm print file. Go to kinko's, go wild.
One illustrated map presents the referee's point of view, with all the hazards and weirdnesses the players may encounter, the gifts they may beg and borrow for the goddesses, and how she may react. The other map is for the visitors, for the players. A little less information is available and some of it is unreliable. You could use this with a VTT, print as a handout, or some other method I can barely comprehend involving the blockchain for managing how the players navigate the map.
The map in the header is the visitor's map, so if you don't want the location spoiled for you, avoid the attachments labelled "REFEREE" and "WIDE BORDER PRINT FILE". That said, most referees will muddle things about and even if you see it, will you remember it when you play? Go on, enjoy the map. :)"
This pared-down method may be enough to run the adventure.
The referee presents a situations and the players say what they want to do. The referee says what happens and the players react to the new situation.
Players take turns in an order that makes sense to the referee.
When a character attempts something risky, they roll a d6:
If competent • 1 failure, 2–3 marginal, 4–6 success.
If unskilled • 1–3 failure, 4–5 marginal, 6 success.
Failure: The character fails. Their predicament worsens. New challenges arise.
Marginal: The hero can succeed if they accept a complication devised by the referee—perhaps they try to rush past the ice wyrm, but it strikes them as they pass.
Success: The hero achieves their goal without further problems.
When circumstances or tools favor a character, they add a +1 bonus to their roll. If both envi- ronment and equipment are on their side, they add +2.
Longwinter: The Referee’s Book contains tools for running Longwinter at the table, with factions and winter encounters.
Longwinter: Visitor's Book contains common knowledge and mechanics for all the players: heroes and referees.

Essentially it is the same as above. We adore all of you and strive to give you the best possible customer experience possible but inventory tracking not only for us but for our vendors and partners makes this almost impossible to do now.
Pre-order dates are subject to change. We get as frustrated as you do when things come up but this happens from time to time. Sometimes circumstances beyond our control will create delays. We try to communicate via social media and our weekly newsletter to keep everyone as up to date as possible.
All items in an order containing pre-orders will ship with the pre-order item once it is in stock. If you would like the other items earlier, please place a seperate order from the one containing the pre-order.
We cannot combine pre-orders with existing orders nor combine new orders with existing pre-orders.
Pre-orders will be exempt from any type of general sale.
