“Go not to the north. You will find only a barren land covered in hoarfrost where the dead rule.”
—Villager’s Warning

Frozen Fortress is an exterior map of a large castle on a mountainous plateau in a frozen wasteland.

Frozen Fortress is intended for use in fantasy or horror games.

Adventure hook for use with this map

Court of the Dead: The living have long been gone from Castle Wintaerth. Those once living in the castle have been transformed into the undead—skeletal and zombie mockeries of their forms in life.

Rumors say that necromancers—perhaps dead themselves—make their home in the castle and have raised the dead to defend their new kingdom of death where they hold court with the dead king, queen, and courtiers of Wintaerth. The undead swarm southward to attack and pillage border villages near the frozen wasteland. The people call for heroes to go to the source of the marching undead, Castle Wintaerth. Heroes who answer the call must survive the barren and cold wasteland and creatures both undead and native to the frozen lands to reach the castle.

At Castle Wintaerth, heroes find the undead soldiers still standing guard over the castle, towers, and battlements. Getting inside the castle means fighting upward through hordes of undead on higher ground or trying to climb treacherous cliffs covered in snow to outflank the undead.

Once inside the castle, they find a court of undead who dance in macabre body positions impossible for the living and necromancers that carouse with the food and drink stolen from the border towns by their undead hordes. The heroes have to defeat the necromancers and their undead attendants to end the threat to the northern villages.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
