Den of the Winter Wolf is a Fifth Edition adventure intended for three to six characters of 1st to 3rd level and is optimized for a party of four characters with an average party level (APL) of 2. Characters who complete this adventure should earn enough experience to reach level 3. A Winter Wolf and its pack are on the prowl and must be taken out for the safety of the nearby village. This adventure is set in The DM Tool Chest's Freelands campaign setting but can be adapted to fit any campaign that has a snowy forest and mountain cave. The adventurers should be prepared for a tough battle with the Winter Wolf and his pack and this will be a difficult adventure for level 1 characters.
Many dangers lie in wait for the unwary in Myrkvid Forest but none so fearsome as Rukdolf, the Winter Wolf. Few have seen him and lived to tell the tale and those who did have refused to enter the woods ever again. There have been attempts to hunt him and his pack down but no one has been able to come close.
The town of Beruvik sits on the edge of Myrkvid Forest and the townsfolk have lived under the shadow of fear of Rukdolf for many years. They’ve taken to leaving sacrifices of their hunts to appease the wolf and permit them safe passage. But this winter has been particularly harsh this year and the sacrifices are becoming fewer and the wolves are getting hungrier.
Beruvik is a fishing town on the northern coast of Northreach and a part of the Kingdom of Svellvegr. Jarl Brand Einarsson is the leader of the town and head of the Hawk clan which controls this territory. Remoteness keeps Beruvik safe from raids but not from Myrkvid's dangers.
Myrkvid Forest is teaming with wild beasts and ferocious monsters. They have been slowly decimating the local deer and rabbit population. Winters are already harsh in this area but they are now getting tougher to survive because of the lack of resources. Rukdolf has gathered the most fearsome of the Myrkvid Forest wolves into his pack and they use a small cave complex as a lair.
