Dolmenwood: Winter's Daughter Cover Illustration

I recently got the cover illustration for the upcoming Dolmenwood adventure -- Winter's Daughter -- in from the illustrator, the phantasmagoric Mish Scott. The cover depicts a melange of imagery from the adventure:
  • The deep, fungal infested glades of Dolmenwood.
  • The circle of ancient, rune-carved stones known as the Whything Stones. (Ritual site of the Drune.)
  • The fairy princess Snowfall-at-Dusk, seventeenth daughter of the Cold Prince. (The eponymous daughter of Winter.)
  • Random spooky / cute wildlife.
Feast your eyes!

  1. I love it. But I have been geeking out over the art you have been using for your covers lately. Great stuff.

  2. That's beautiful! I love the cut-paper look. It reminds me of the weird eastern European cartoons I used to see on Pinwheel way back when I was a kid.

    1. You're not the only person to have said that! I entirely agree.

    2. O wow yes! They were weird - and not just the cartoons. What about 'The Singing Ringing Tree'?

  3. Suitably 'other'.

    Had a venture into Sir Chyde's tomb as part of John Anthony's Norwich group (and my first experience of Dolmonwood). We didn't get far, but it's an intriguing set-up.

  5. That does look pretty sweet, I know the adventure is mainly designed for Dolmenwood but how usable is it going to be outside of that campaign setting?

    1. It should be usable in any setting where icy fairies, knights, and saints fit. The background of the adventure ties in with the larger story of Dolmenwood -- the Cold Prince, specifically -- but it should be easy enough to tie that into another wicked fairy king in another setting.

  6. Beautiful. There's no way that owl is your garden variety barnyard owl. Suspicious critter!
