A complete, stand-alone game set in the world of Frostgrave. Ghost Archipelago moves the action to a mysterious chain of jungle-covered islands, that appear every few hundred years, only to disappear a few years later. The players take on the role of Heritors, heroes with super-human powers, whose ancestors drank from the fabled crystal pool. Aided by magic-wielding Wardens, the Heritors search the islands for the pool and any other treasures they can find along the way.

To begin your adventures amongst the Lost Isles, all you need is the rulebook, pictured here. Although the game encourages players to use whatever miniatures they want, or have available, an official range of miniatures is available from North Star Military Figures.

Once you’ve mastered the rules there are several supplements that contain even more adventures, monsters, and magic. Each one stands alone, so you can pick and choose what to explore next. Listed below are all of the official publications for the game.
