Sea Smoke billows around Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse in the sub-zero cold.

“A ranger in the service of the High King has just been attacked by the undead remains of one of her old opponents – a frost giant who has waited a long time for this moment of revenge.  Having lost her sword and used up her normal arrows, the ranger has a single elven arrow left.”
