Hellfrost Region Guide #53: Alfheim

By on 1 October 2012

Hellfrost Region Guide #53: AlfheimBetwixt the realms of mortals and gods lies the land of the fey. It is a place of mystery and wonder, danger and delight, little traveled by mortals yet widely named and described in songs and poems of old. It is a land divided between light and darkness, a land of dreams made real, season long days and nights, and ever-changing environments. Few who enter emerge completely unscathed by the experience.

This supplement explores the basics of the unearthly race, and the strange nature of their realm. Setting rules for those invited to visit, or who inadvertently stray across the border, are provided for the GM, as are four new varieties of fey. For players, there is a new Edge (Fey-Touched), and a new Arcane Background (Glamour).

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.
