Critical Hits #32 ? War in Midwinter
an encounter by Simon Lucas
Encounter Level 9
Critical Hits is a series of fantasy encounters created to be dropped into any existing campaign as an interesting diversion from the main storyline or played as a single evening's entertainment. This popular range of products provides DM and player alike with unusual and interesting, sometimes comical but always memorable encounters.
In War in Midwinter, the characters find themselves embroiled in the climactic part of the struggle for the future of the remote town of Midwinter. The party find themselves forced to marshal the town's scanty defenses against an almost overwhelming force of bandits, who lust after the town's riches.
War in Midwinter is the second of a two-part Christmas Critical Hit. The encounter can be played alone or as a conclusion to the first part, Fear in Midwinter. For a place that's covered in snow, Midwinter could be the hottest location in your games this holiday season!
