A land covered in snow, winds that rattle the bones and tales of a monster that resides deep in the Exium Cavern; awaits those who venture forth into the Blizzard Alps.
Blizzard Alps is an unofficial fanmade map expansion for the boardgame Near and Far. Alana illustrated, printed and play tested this map for fun; She also created a new character and a teaser promo video.

SPECIAL RULE: Blizzards make your travels much more difficult in the Alps. When a character lands or passes a space with the blizzard icon, the character is hindered and loses “2” extra movement. If there’s a tent on a space with the Blizzard icon you lose “1” extra movement rather than “2”.
This was a fun project to work on. It’s a bit on the corny side, but it makes me laugh. Blizzard Alps was all about having fun and practicing my craft!
Character: Girl and Animal Companion: Lynx
Hunters found you in a campground, an infant, crying, alone, they took you in and raised you. You weren’t given a proper name, everyone calls you Girl, for that’s what you are. You live with hunters, eat with hunters, fight with hunters. At the age of seven, you could already shoot a rabbit, between the eyes from thirty yards.
During a blizzard the Alpha of the hunters was caught in the storm, never to be seen again. You set out on a journey to find the Last Ruin to proof your worth to the hunters.
Along the journey you get to choose a name for yourself.
The printed Blizzard Alps Map set up with Near and Far boardgame Elements with Amber mines Expansion.
