I'll give a vote to the excellent Frostmaker.

The Nortraddi are nice and flavourful and would be a deeply satifying encounter. Nice work to you both.

Shouldn't that say December 8 in the opening post? Or is there an entire year of voting going on here?

I personally prefer the Frostmaker and therefore vote for it.

Frostmaker although I liked the Nortraddi very much.

Neither of you really understood the Lore section. I'll just take this opportunity to explain it for the next contest. It is based on Knowledge checks:

Knowledge Check

In many cases, you can use this skill to identify monsters and their special powers or vulnerabilities. In general, the DC of such a check equals 10 + the monsterís HD. A successful check allows you to remember a bit of useful information about that monster.

For every 5 points by which your check result exceeds the DC, you recall another piece of useful information.

Here is how it looks for the Nordatti:

A successful Knowledge (arcana) check reveals the following:

DC 33: The nomads of the Gorlack Valley dust plains are master hunters of nortraddi and travel the plains in armour crafted from nortraddi hide.

DC 38: Their hunting methods and hide working techniques are carefully guarded secrets and outsiders are rarely taken along on hunts.

DC 43: Leather armour made from nortraddi hide is 50% heavier, has DR 2/-, and has 10 electricity resistance. It is considered masterwork.

DC 48: Hide armour made from nortraddi hide is 50% heavier, has DR 3/-, and has 15 electricity resistance. It is considered masterwork.
