A hunting trip can potentially be dangerous all on its own. When that trip takes place at the start of Ragnarok, it's even a bit more dangerous. But the community needs food, and it's up to you to provide it. Though you might want to suit up a bit extra, just in case.

It is designed for use with Skirmisher Publishing’s “Viking Warriors” and “Dvergar Warriors” factions for Ragnarok: Age of Wolves — which include stats for all the combatants mentioned in this publication — and its system-free sets of “Viking Warriors” and “Dwarf Soldiery” sets of Cardstock CharactersTM. If desired, however, it could be played with stats culled from the core book and any appropriate miniatures. This publication also includes a sheet of 18 Mountain Goat miniatures that can be printed out on card stock and assembled for use with this and other scenarios.

Beasts haunt the wilds and prowl the outskirts of palisaded settlement and isolated steading alike. Trolls and their ilk gather, marauders sweep brigands and more into their bands, and whispers abound of gaunt giant wolves and worse, glimpsed in the swirl of a snowstorm. And where such monsters and everlasting winter hold sway, Frost Giants cannot be far behind ...
