Winter of the WitchD&D Insider Article
by Stephen Radney-MacFarland

Unseasonable cold has arrived in the land -- a winter of deadly fury. Crops have withered on the vine, and the people of the land are suffering. The strange new winter has continued to spread, inexorably creeping south. If heroes don't rise soon to investigate the deadly chill, more and more people could die.

The ways of the fey can be mysterious and deadly. This is especially true for the cold-hearted and cruel fey that constitute the Winter Court. Overseen by Prince of Frost, the various fey that make up the court are often left to their own devices and the pursuit of their own capricious whims.

While it is known that the Prince of Frost holds mortals in utter contempt, he also rarely acts against them directly, but such constraint is not known by another member of his court. One being in particular, a somewhat minor archfey named Koliada the Winter Witch, makes deadly forays into the world regularly.

    About the Author

    Born on a stormy Christmas day, in our nation's capital, during the Nixon administration, the stars were definitely wrong when Stephen Radney-MacFarland came screaming into the world. Spending most of his impressionable years as a vagabond and ne'r-do-well, Stephen eventually settled in the Northwest to waste his life on roleplaying games.

    Once that RPGA guy, Stephen is now a developer in RPG R&D where he doesn't create the traps ... he just makes them deadlier. He also teaches a class on roleplaying design for the Art Institute of Seattle, molding the minds of young and upcoming designers. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
