Glacial Rift of the
Frost Giant JarlD&D Insider Article
Christopher Perkins

T he Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl was written by Gary Gygax and published in 1978 by TSR, Inc. Part two of a three-part series, it packed a lot of punch into eight pages and presented frost giants as iconic D&D monsters. The tripartite "Giants" series was later collected into a single adventure module titled Against the Giants, published by TSR in 1981.

This adventure is inspired by Gary Gygax's classic module but uses the latest Dungeons & Dragons Roleplaying Game rules. It is designed for characters of levels 16–18.

"Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl" can be run as a stand-alone adventure, or you can play it as the third part of a four-part series that begins with "Steading of the Hill Giant Chief" (Dungeon 197) and "Warrens of the Stone Giant Thane" (Dungeon 198), and concludes with "Hall of the Fire Giant King" (Dungeon 200).
