About the adventure

SOME SECRETS ARE WORTH DYING FOR Beneath the unyielding night sky, you stand before a towering glacier and recite an ancient rhyme, causing a crack to form in the great wall of ice. Beyond this yawning fissure, the Caves of Hunger await. And past this icy dungeon is a secret so old and terrifying that few dare speak of it. The mad wizards of the Arcane Brotherhood long to possess that which the god of winter’s wrath has so coldly preserved—as do you! What fantastic secrets and treasures are entombed in the sunless heart of the glacier, and what will their discovery mean for the denizens of Icewind Dale? Can you save Ten-Towns from the Frostmaiden’s everlasting night? Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden is a tale of dark terror that revisits the forlorn, flickering candlelights of civilization known as Ten-Towns and sheds light on the many bone-chilling locations that surround these frontier settlements. - If you're a fan of the "Horror of the Unknown" and environmental hazards, then this is the game for you. Your table awaits...

Additional Details

How to prepare

Come to the session zero with a few character ideas. We will discuss classes/party balance as a group. Once you've made your choice, please try to be familiar with your class/racial abilities before session one (Chapter 3 of the PHB). I highly recommend that you create a D&D Beyond account to help you manage your character. It can be connected to Roll20 via the Beyond20 browser extension. All applications are free of charge. We will be running our game over Zoom, but a video feed is not required. If you wish to use video, please make sure you can be decently lit. A good microphone/headset is a plus. Lastly, it will be helpful if you can familiarize yourself with the rules for combat (Chapter 9 of the PHB).

Gameplay details

Our game will contain a fairly even amount of role-playing and combat; some sessions containing both, and some containing more of one than the other. I strive to make even random encounters feel exciting and challenging, and most NPCs will have stories of their own, some leading to side quests, some just for flavor. Good role-playing can lead to vulnerability that may become uncomfortable for some. I maintain a very open policy about what is and is not acceptable in my games. We will establish firm boundaries in our session zero, and we will be using the X, N, O card format ( https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/114jRmhzBpdqkAlhmveis0nmW73qkAZCj )during the campaign. I want the game to be exciting and memorable, but real trauma will be avoided at all costs.
