Description Edit | History

Belongs to the Runebound Series.

From release announcement (found on TGN):

To the North of Terrinoth, across the Sea of White Fangs, lies cold and desolate Isheim, the Land of Ice. After millennia of sleep in this frozen realm, the Ancients are beginning to stir. These strange and powerful creatures arise to serve the wrath of their immortal master, Arshan the Mad. The Years of the White Death are at hand, a time when doom shall claim all peoples who call this land home. Unless a hero can brave this unforgiving landscape and stand against the woeful and destructive might of Arshan, all of Isheim will be destroyed.

The Frozen Wastes features a new, beautifully rendered board overlay, 110 new cards, six new Hero figures, and winter survival gear. The ever-changing weather is represented by new rules for the harsh conditions, weather tiles, frost counters, and white death counters. New icy terrain types include features such as snow drifts and tundra. New creatures include vicious icewyrms, menacing wendigos, and formidable frost giants.

You must own the Runebound basic game to play this expansion.

12 The Ice King: Frozen Wastes Adventure Variant
The white dragon Acessiwal is an ancient villain, well versed in the ways of evil and a growing bane to humankind. For more than a millenia, he has grown in power and his wars against the frost giant clans ended thirty years ago with his total dominion of the great glacier that covers the crown of the world. With wealth and power to rival kingdoms, Acessiwal has finally turned his attention south to the weak and divided lands of men. Thousands of lives will be lost unless a band of heroes can venture half way across a continent to the dragon's lair at Coldheart Keep to put a stop to the beast once and for all. Cunning and ferocious, the self titled Ice King has already been the end of hundreds of would be dragonslayers and his lair may prove deadly once again unless the heroes can gain...
