About the adventure

In Icewind Dale, adventure is a dish best served cold. 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? Players of all experience levels welcome (never be afraid to ask questions!) I will always try to adapt to the table and try to balance things so everyone feels included and is having fun. Roleplaying is encouraged, but never expected. We're here to have fun and have an epic adventure together!

Additional Details

How to prepare

Familiarity with D&D 5E is helpful, but not a requirement. If you are new and looking to get into the game we can explain mechanics as we proceed through the adventure. I am more than willing to answer questions. I do have access to unlocked sourcebook materials on D&D Beyond that I can make available to players for easy character creation . D&D Beyond is also a handy resource during a session. You can manage inventory, health, spells all within DDB (including dice rolls!). Creating a D&D Beyond account is encouraged, but not needed.

What I provide

I will provide the following: Maps, puzzles, story relevant art, bad jokes, good jokes , and access to sourcebook materials for character creation.

Gameplay details

I want to play the kind of game you want to play. For a campaign, we would start with fresh adventurers that can be created before the session using any of the character options available in the Player's Handbook or sourcebooks. If you prefer an adventure where you get to experience a higher level of play, let me know and we can scale things up so you can let loose some of those crazier spells!

How will character creation work

Player characters will begin the adventure at level one and venture forth into the frigid landscape. Players can create their characters before the session using the character options within the Players Handbook or any of the other available Sourcebooks. Stats should be determined using Standard Array or Point Buy (whichever you prefer). A campaign link to D&D Beyond with unlocked character options can be provided.
