Winteria

By Keith McDonald

The icy and sinister final dungeon in Series 5 was monitored by the Ice Queen, Aesandre.


Winteria was a one-off setting for Level 3, used for the single winning team of Series 5.

It comprised of outdoor snow-covered areas, two indoor chambers, and a room resembling the Block and Tackle.

In an unusual twist, the dungeoneer is given a cloak, suggesting a sentient level of protection afforded to game players.

Winteria was the domain of Aesandre the Ice Queen, who was an occasional accomplice to Lord Fear. Aesandre guards the realm herself and appears in a final showdown with dungeoneers.
