6 Frosty Monsters for Your Next Winter Adventure
Winter is here and with it the holidays! Here are 6 frosty monsters for your next winter adventure! If you are anything like us then you know that winter is one of the best times to play TTRPGs. It’s cold outside, dark earlier, and there’s (slightly) more free time around the holidays.
In honor of this chilly time, we’ve compiled a D6 list of wintery monsters for you to add to your next adventure. Roll a D6 or pick your favorite monster and let the battle begin!
1. Bheur Hag:
Bheur Hags, also known as Winter Hags, are fey that are said to bring on the winter chill. While many believe that the fey are drawn to colder climates there are some who say that these Hags are actually the reason for snow and frost.
Ghosts are a staple of any spooky adventure, and you never know why a ghost may be hanging around. Do they have unresolved business? Perhaps they are lingering until justice for their death is served. Or maybe, they are here to remind adventures of the consequences of being greedy – especially during a time of giving and cheer!
3. Abominable Yeti:
We aren’t sure if he’s sharing his lemon snowcones, or if he’s here to feast on the villagers residing in the mountain town but an Abominable Yeti is without a doubt a great way to shake up an encounter.

4. Winter Wolf:
Packs of Winter Wolves prowl in the mountains and across the frozen tundra. Blending into the icy landscape they are a dangerous and sly predator waiting for their next meal, be it a rabbit that darts just a bit too slowly or an adventurer who isn’t paying attention.
5. Frost Giant:
Though intelligent these large creatures rarely show mercy. Some hold court in the frozen regions of the world, accepting offerings from villagers in exchange for sparing their villages. Others rampage through the north, with not a care for what lay in their path.
6. Adult White Dragon:
Is it really Dungeons and Dragons if you don’t face a dragon? The Adule White Dragon is strong, wise, and cunning. Not to be trifled with. But if you can prove useful to this formidable foe they may be willing to let you do their dirty work rather than be their snack. Be careful what tricks you try to pull with this beast.
