Excellent story Jim! I could picture the village and the blizzard (as I live in Ontario, Canada, I've experienced many in my life) perfectly. And as you described the snowmobile riders, I was immediately thrown back to my late teens, clutching to my friend as we zipped around the back roads on her snowmobile on a snow day. Amazing storytelling as always.

Also, when the players mentioned resting in the cave after two failed their hard con rolls, my brain immediately thought, "Resting?! In the cold?! No, bad, bad! You fall asleep, you're dead!" I'm hoping that fate doesn't meet our heros and that Franziska makes it in time!

Oh, and thanks for making me crave a big breakfast at 10 PM.

I also want to thank you so much for all your hard work making these recordings! I just discovered your site a couple weeks ago (thanks to Uncaring Cosmos, who I also just discovered) and I can't stop listening! You and the others do such a wonderful job and thanks are due to them as well! <3 Much love from the Great White North!
