Brilliant! When Winter Came To Skedemosse is such a vibrant, living, detailed scenario/setting. I love that its open world, allows players/characters to drive the action and really seems to be part of a much larger living world. I want more of the setting now please!


this is amazing! A must have for any OSE campaign, let alone historically grounded, low-fantasy settings. As always Christopher delivers a big time winner!
