This special, winter-themed event was introduced on the 14th of December 2008 for AG members, available for a limited time, and only for AG members, as a holiday gift from the GM.

On April 28, 2009, the adventure was brought back, but without the special Holiday portion of the final reward. However, the adventure still provides a substantial Experience reward and a great challenge!

Introduction Edit

The adventure is accessed from Hawklor, and requires the completion of A Cold Winter's Night and The Caves of Westwold adventures previously.

You can enter and leave the event at will, like Phantom Assassin.

The Stoneback Tavern, which is made into a SAFE point once you enter the scenario, is the center of the scenario. You can check there the number of villagers you've found so far.

Aside from the Tavern, you can Explore The Blizzard-Ravaged Wilds.

A dozen of the village's citizens are missing... presumably trapped in the snow-filled wilderness that surrounds Hawklor. Take care and bundle up as you explore the vast and frozen woodland in search of those caught in the merciless grasp of the storm...
Base explorations: 20

  • An Icy Cave (Noted location)
  • Rengol from the previous A Cold Winter's Night adventure. He asks you to retrieve 20 missing gift parcels he lost on his way. You can visit him later at the "Rengol's Crash Site" location.
  • Several places where something large has dragged off something significantly smaller than itself. This encounter is only shown after you've found 19 of the gift boxes and 11 of the villagers, besides finding the Icy Cave. It unlocks the final showdown of the event, and along with it comes a little bit of extra text at the Icy Cave

A gift boxEdit

The boxes will try to evade you. You can use Elementalism (30+), Gating (30+), Illusion (30+), Telekinesis (30+) for 4 specific XP (all tested) or attempt to sneak up on the package. Sneaking up is a Random check (1-100 + Woodsmanship * 0.25 + Thievery * 0.25 + Agility * 1 + Body * 0.50 + Luck * 0.50). 100 or more needed to pass.

If you fail, the package escapes. You get 64 General XP for each package you retrieve.

The colour of the gift boxes you recover for Rengol do not impact any of your rewards for this adventure (they all resolve to the same object).

The boxes can be of the following colors: Silver, Yellow, Purple, Red, Blue, Golden, Green

One of the villagersEdit

You will find them in the following order:

# Name Description
1 Emnal An older man.
2 Selorne A middle-aged woman.
3 Lullias An older woman.
4 Kaltin A young man.
5 Laram A middle-aged man.
6 Perndra A young woman.
7 Morich An elderly man.
8 Enler An older man.
9 Athesa An elderly woman.
10 Jodd A middle-aged man.
11 Vornmir A young man.
12 Rilea A young woman.

You can use 30+ Restoration on each villager for 4 specific XP, some easier progress rolls and more time to take them to Hawklor.

To take each villager back to Hawklor you must pass a series Random check (1-100 + Woodsmanship * 0.25 + Spirit * 0.50 + Mind * 1 + Body * 1)

Each of these checks will take you 25% of the way to Hawklor.

You get 64 XP for delivering each villager to the Stoneback Tavern.

As you find more villagers, the to-get number increases:

Villager With Restoration Without Restoration
1 50 65
2 65 65
3 65 65
4 75 75
5 75 75
6 85 85
7 100 100
8 100 100
9 100 100
10 100 100
11 100 100

If you fail in any of these checks, you must roll another one to determine the effect that your lengthy exposure to the biting cold has had. Random check (1-100 + Body * 1 + Spirit * 1 + Woodsmanship * 0.25). 75 or more needed to pass

If you pass, you suffer no ill-effects. Should you fail, you lose some stamina (4-14 SP).

If you fail many rolls (5 attested without Restoration), the villager can die. The use of Restoration in the villager protects him/her, although it's unknown if it gives him/her complete resistance to cold or merely increases your chances. You do not fail the quest because of this, it's considered just an accident. Your total rewards will be slightly lower, but that's the only mechanical effect.


An Icy Cave Edit

Map A Blizzard in The Hills An Icy Cave

  • E: Entrance
  • 1: White-haired man
  • 2: Lair
  • 3: Dead man

In the body of the dead man you can find a few gold pieces, a Well-Crafted Longsword and 4 Adventurer Tokens

After you get the encounter with something large that has dragged off something significantly smaller than itself, you can come back to find some changes, between them signs of a struggle in the mouth of the cave. As you enter the lair, you'll be confronted with the beast: Fur Clad Ogre (9+ at MR 84-86 Variable, 200-204 SP), special attack ~8-15 SP, can't FLEE. Once you beat it, you'll find the last villager alive, the last gift box and a Shattered Pendant.

For saving all 12 villagers, you are rewarded with 6144 General XP and 3072 XP to All Skills and Powers

Rengol's Crash Site Edit

You receive 64 extra General XP for each gift box you deliver to Rengol (a total of 1280 general experience for all 20).

After you deliver him the last package, you are awarded 2048 General XP and 512 XP to All Skills and Powers

You will also get an interesting Cane-Shaped Pendant in exchange for Shattered Pendant:

You will get 8 Adventurer Tokens regardless of whether you accept to ride with him or not.

As a last reward for completing the full event, you will receive another 4096 General XP, and 256 XP to All Skills and Powers (previously 512 XP).
