Cold Legion Veteran

The cold legion is an army of dwarf-like creatures that rose from Élivágar – the primordial rivers of ice. They worship Ymir, the first giant, and seek to extinguish all life from cold lands such as polar regions. As such they are only found in such climates. Soldiers in the cold legion are immortal, and those slain rises again by drawing on elemental energy from the icy lands. When the army moves, it unrelentingly destroys all settlements in its path through attrition. The advance of the horde has been halted in the past only through defeating its ranks in a single day, in fearsome battles at great cost of life, and then imprisoning the horde before midnight.

A cold legion veteran has grown larger and tougher than the legion minions. They have pale blue skin and piercing blue eyes. They fight with a Warhammer of ice which spreads frost against the foes it strikes. They ably command minions across the battlefield.

Cold Legion Slinger

The cold legion is an army of dwarf-like creatures that rose from Élivágar – the primordial rivers of ice. They worship Ymir, the first giant, and seek to extinguish all life from cold lands such as polar regions. As such they are only found in such climates. Soldiers in the cold legion are immortal, and those slain rises again by drawing on elemental energy from the icy lands. When the army moves, it unrelentingly destroys all settlements in its path through attrition. The advance of the horde has been halted in the past only through defeating its ranks in a single day, in fearsome battles at great cost of life, and then imprisoning the horde before midnight.

A cold legion slinger is more closely related to giants than dwarves. They are the artillery of the legion, picking up chunks of earth or rocks and infusing them with elemental ice from their own frozen veins.

Buckler Guardian

The buckler guardian is a lesser form of shield guardian often created by wizards to defend their towers. They are humanoid in shape, constructed from metal plates and brass gears, with a distinctive round shield on one arm. They do not need to sleep, drink or eat. A buckler guardian is magically linked to one locus, such as a vault or throne room. It cannot stray too far in pursuit of intruders, but can unerringly teleport back to its primary location.

Buckler guardians automatically attack creatures that it does not recognize as the location’s owner or people in their employ. If ownership of the location legally changes hands, the guardian is instantly aware of this. If the property has no legal ownership, such as an expired deed with no heir, the guardian stands dormant, only attacking to defend itself.

White Drakeling

Drakelings are small flying lizards that are distantly related to both drakes and dragons. A drakeling is the size of a crow and has needle-like teeth and sharp claws. Although usually found in flocks, lone drakelings can be encountered as pets or a spellcaster’s familiar.

White drakelings are native to arctic regions, and have white scales and translucent wings. When they roost in the roofs of caves, they look similar to icicles. They also use this camouflage on the hunt to blend into snow.
