About the adventure

"Why don't we just... wait here for a little while... see what happens?" - The Thing 🏔 - It's cold out there... Also, cults! 🌕 - The sun is sleeping quietly, once upon a century. ❄ - The ice is fun, but what's under the ice. Oh, that's where the real fun is! ☠ - Long-lost civilizations. Like Atlantis! But without Jason Momoa... I can add Momoa if it makes you feel better. This campaign goes from levels 2 to 11 taking between 30 to 40 weekly sessions. It has an overall theme of survival in the harsh, artic cold. Players are caught in a cosmic battle between powerful entities as they try to figure out what is causing the endless winter. This campaign starts at level 2 and is great for beginners to slowly grow in experience and learn with the game. There is an element of survival and danger in the wilderness, but also safe hubs in Ten-towns. The adventure can be split into three main acts: - Sandbox-style adventures in Ten-towns. - Survival in the wilderness, venturing further to exotic and faraway locations across Icewind Dale. - An expedition into uncharted environments under the ice. What you are paying for when joining any of my games: 🛡 - A safe, welcoming environment to all people. Session zero and safety tools. 👮‍♂️ - A strict "no harassment" policy and robust table etiquette properly enforced. 🎤 - Open channel for communication with me. Quick response and transparent feedback. ⏲ - Excellent control of pacing, I keep the game moving and the story evolving. ⚖ - Fair judgement and rulings, with proper flexibility to accommodate the narrative. 🎨 - Immersive and engaging descriptions of environments, events and creatures. 🌏 - Beautiful maps that evoke the imagination. 🎵 - Ambient sounds and soundtracks appropriate to each moment of the story.

Gameplay details

This game contains themes of isolation, survival, environment exploration and harsh, VERY harsh cold. We are talking here about extreme environment, almost at space exploration levels. The campaign takes place in a wild area, with small settlements and a lot of wild, unexplored space. There is no sun, it's always dark, and hope has faded from the hearts of people. Maybe you can bring it back! I use the X-Card safety tool to make sure everyone is safe and having a positive experience during the game.

How will character creation work

Characters start at level 2 (or the party level if you are joining later in the campaign). Race, background, class and subclass should be from the Player's Handbook, Xanathar's Guide to Everything, Tashas Cauldron of Everything and Monsters of the Multiverse. Races with flying speed are not allowed. Forbidden subclasses are: Clerics of Twilight or Peace domains, Gloomstalker Rangers. Feats are allowed, HP is average, optional class rules from Tasha's Cauldron of Everything are allowed, except for custom lineage. You can still customize your origin in an existing race and swap racial bonuses. Please check the source of any spells and feats to make sure they are from one of the allowed sources above. Spells and feats coming from other sources will not be allowed. You start with your initial class and background equipment as well as basic Cold Weather clothing. (if you're joining mid-campaign you get extra equipment or magical items to bring you into an equal level with the rest of the group).
