Grim & Perilous Showcase December 2021
Welcome to the G&P showcase, this month I am picking out some Winter specials for you. Normally, the showcase is for three titles, but this time I have four for you.
This month I have picked Forever Winter, one of the best selling titles in the Library; A Winter Festival, an adventure I wrote for last Christmas; The Doom Within Candlehome, where your characters become trapped by a snowstorm; and finally we have 100 Snow and Ice Encounters to add a deep mid-winter feel to any game.

To Live is to Suffer
Winter has come, will you survive?
Snow began to fall as the Betrayer placed a trinket on the raised stone altar in the middle of the haunted forest. The chirps of birds and howls of beasts sounded in disapproval. Each distant noise rising up through the forest in a fever pitch of panic. A cold wind whipped through the trees, chilling man and beast alike. The prophecy had come to pass, and so began the curse of Forever Winter. The Long Winter would haunt the land for decades and all life across the land fought for its very survival. But the ultimate fate of the world is in your hands, for good or ill.
Forever Winter is a modular adventure for ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG. Inside you will find 80 pages of dark fantasy content, including:
A Winter Festival
A Basic Tier One-Shot Adventure
A bumper crop of Red Cap Mushrooms has brought chaos to a remote region. Something had to be done and a bounty on each orx ear has brought many swords for hire, including your characters, to the region. It is mid-winter when the Orx bring forth a peace offering under a white flag. What could possibly go wrong?
This is part of the Primevals adventure series.
This is a one page, both sides, trifold adventure.
The Doom Within Candlehome
This title has Adult Content.
There has been a murder. Abraham Bhody, the beloved butler of the Lumenborne family has been killed and his face peeled off. Now the hunt is on to find the killer, before the Doom Within Candlehome strikes again…
This short adventure is for 4-6 Basic tier characters, for both new and old players and Game Masters alike. It is the second in the Doom series, a series of adventures inspired by the doomings that players can roll.
100 Snow and Ice Encounters
This is a collection of 100 different events and encounters that characters could have whilst travelling through snow and icebound regions. Some of the encounters are most suited to polar regions and those lands nearest to them, others could be located in snowy mountains or perhaps simply during a heavy winter. Some of the encounters are odd and some are potentially hazardous. They can be used to enliven otherwise boring travel, or perhaps even be a source of adventure hooks.
