Publisher Comments:

A complete guide to playing D&D in the ice and snow.

This 4-color supplement begins a new series of releases that focus on how the environment can affect D&D gameplay in every capacity. Frostburn contains rules on how to adapt to hazardous cold-weather conditions, such as navigating terrain with snow and ice and surviving in bitter cold or harsh weather. There are expanded rules for environmental hazards and manipulation of cold weather elements, as well as new spells, feats, magic items, and prestige classes. New monsters associated with icy realms are included, as well as variants on current monsters. There is enough adventure material included for months of gameplay.

This book is not worth the cost. It has some decent rules for exposure, but they aren't sufficient to justify the price. The monsters aren't very interesting; the section on deities of the cold is infuriating (it references the reader to something like 4 other supplements, two of which aren't even remotely core) and lists a domain (something you really need to play) that's in an entirely separate book! In other similar supplements (such as Sandstorm) they reprint the domain; it takes up less than a page. This was just laziness adulterated only by profiteering.

I've not been entirely impressed with this product line (the terrain types stuff), but this one is easily the worst I've read.
