FrostGrave into the breeding pits

With this new supplement for Frostgrave available to pre-order today, players can lead their warbands into the vast network of catacombs, sewers, and dungeons that run underneath the Frozen City. It was in these dark confines that the ancient wizards known as Beastcrafters experimented on living creatures, creating strange hybrids and deadly monsters, many of which still roam the forgotten passageways. Along with a host of new scenarios, treasures, soldiers, and creatures, the book also contains rules for the traps and secret passages that are often found in the dungeons. With wonderful and rare magical treasures to be discovered, will players risk taking their warbands down into the Breeding Pits?

Beastcrafter & Apprentice

FGV112 Beast crafter

Amongst the most famous and feared of Felstad’s underground residents were the Beastcrafters. Officially, the name belonged to a specific guild of magic, but in practice the term was applied to any wizard that worked in the breeding pits creating hybrid animals and other monsters. Most of their creations ended up in arenas or exported to foreign lands, but some were sold as guardians, mounts, or exotic pets.

Since the great cataclysm, most of the knowledge of the Beastcrafters has been lost, and even where the knowledge does still exist, the massive laboratories, vats, and animal-handling facilities demanded by their craft simply no longer exist. It would take the wealth of a kingdom and several decades of work to recreate even the smallest of ancient Felstad’s breeding pits.

All of that said, there are a few remaining strains of Beastcrafter magic that tempt wizards into explorations beneath the Frozen City. The most sought-after is the formula for the Elixir of the Beastcrafter, a potion that the ancient wizards used to fuse their own blood with that of animals, allowing them a greater understanding of these creatures and also imbuing them with some of their bestial qualities. Prolonged use of the elixir also caused the imbiber to take on a more animalistic appearance, making them outcasts from polite society, and driving them to spend even more time underground with their monstrous creations.

Frostgrave Plastic Gnolls

The Frostgrave Gnolls plastic box set contains enough parts to make 20 different figures. There are multiple heads, arms, weapons and accoutrements per frame, no two warbands will ever be the same.

Gnolls feature in Into The Breeding Pits as opponents in the scenarios and as random encounters. They should also be used as the soldiers for Warbands of Beastcrafter Wizards.

Gnoll Warchief

FGV404 Gnoll Warchief

After an ancient law banned human fighters from the arenas, the Beastcrafters exploited a loophole and created numerous varieties of anthropomorphised animal hybrids. While many different species were exploited to this end, rats, dogs, and hyenas provided strong, reliable subjects and were amongst the most common hybrids. After years of Beastcrafter tinkering and manipulation, robust strains that drew from these three species were perfected.

Gnoll Thief & Barbarian

FGV216 Gnoll Thief

These gnolls, as these strains came to be collectively known, were bred in the thousands in the years before the cataclysm, and sold as slaves and gladiators to the arenas and as shock troops to the armies of foreign powers. When the great storm struck, several groups of the hardy gnolls survived, trapped in isolated colonies deep beneath the city. Over the next millennium, they multiplied, forming numerous tribes and packs, warring with each other in their underground warrens and hunting the great worms.

Gnoll Apothecary & Marksman

FGV217 Gnoll Apothecary

Today, gnolls form what is easily the most numerous group of living creatures inside the Frozen City. Most gnolls will belong to one of the many tribes, clans, or packs that claims large areas of the underground as their territories. While gnolls only rarely come to the surface, their hunting parties are occasionally encountered by explorers in the ruins.

Gnoll Tracker & War Hyena

FGV218 Gnoll Traker

Gnolls possess a low-level human intelligence. They are capable of limited human speech and can produce simple tools and weapons, though they prefer to steal or loot rather than create. Gnoll warriors include all of the same types found in human societies, though those that rely on specialized weapons or heavy armour such as knights and marksmen are uncommon.

Elementalist & Apprentice II

FGV113 Elementalist

Elementalists are the most outwardly powerful type of wizard. Their magic is centred around controlling the four elements, usually in loud, explosive, and unsubtle ways. Their clothes tend to feature one bold colour, and they are more prone to flashy decorations than other wizards – facial tattoos are not uncommon.

Most Elementalists, especially those that specialize in the control of fire, tend to have short tempers. While Fire Elementalists may specialize in Fire magic, he or she is more than capable of harnessing the powers of Water, Wind or Earth, should it be necessary.

Trap Expert & Tunnel Fighter.

FGV215 Trap Fighter

Trap Expert.

The ruins of Frostgrave are so littered with traps that many wizards employ specialists to help navigate safely through its labyrinthine streets and passages. These trap experts are not only masters of identifying and disarming traps, but are also skilled at setting booby traps to catch unwary enemies.

Tunnel Fighter.

Few soldiers, even hardened veterans, enjoy fighting underground. The close confines, the poor lighting, and the often treacherous footing make it a battlefield like no other. There are some, however, who excel in this environment. These tunnel fighters are generally small, tough, quick, and vicious. They favour sneaking up on opponents in the dark and dispatching them with quick brutality rather than protracted combats.
