Don't get caught alone on a dark winter's night by these...
Publisher's blurb: "Winter wolves are the terrors of the tundra, perfectly adapted to their wintry environment. Though wearing the form of a simple animal, the winter wolf's cunning and intellect approaches that of humankind, making these creatures far more dangerous than their physical appearance would indicate.
"Built like a common wolf and yet standing taller than the fiercest dwarven warrior, a winter wolf is equally at home in the snow-laden wastes of the deep arctic or the towering heights of jagged, windswept mountains. During the heaviest blizzard, when all that can be seen are swirling shades of white in all directions, the winter wolves prowl for food, heedless of the ice matting their pelts or the cold winds sweeping across their lupine faces. When fierce winter storms send sheets of freezing hail and sleet screaming across the snow-swept plains, and even the heartiest arctic inhabitants nestle deep into hidden burrows for warmth and safety, packs of winter wolves range the white wastes, seeking their prey. Silently they stalk their unknowing quarry, slipping ghostlike through the snow-filled landscape, their tracks quickly erased by the howling arctic winds. Discovering a lone victim struggling through the bleak landscape, they add their own howls of triumph to the voice of the wind. Hearing this, the victim knows with dire certainty that all hope is gone, for none can evade these lords of the cold-lands for long...
"Within these pages you will find detailed information on winter wolf physiology, habitat, and society, giving you a basic overview on how this race exists and interacts with the rest of the world. Players can learn winter wolf hunting tactics and Games Masters are given guidelines on how to introduce winter wolves into their existing campaigns. They will also benefit from material demonstrating how to portray winter wolves to the players, so that they stand out from the normal wolf. The section on foundlings may make for an interesting NPC (or even Player Character) background. Finally, a complete winter wolf lair is featured to be used as either an extended encounter or as an example of how such lairs are generally laid out."
