About the adventure
Welcome to the frostbitten adventure that will chill you to your very core. Brace yourself for the icy grasp of death in this thrilling campaign. In Icewind Dale, danger lurks around every corner, and adventure is a dish best served cold. As you stand beneath the unyielding night sky, a towering glacier looms before you. With an ancient words on your lips, you cause a crack to form in the great wall of ice, revealing the yawning fissure that leads to the Caves of Hunger. But the secrets that lie beyond this icy dungeon are not for the faint of heart. The Arcane Brotherhood, a group of mad wizards, long to possess the ancient artifacts and treasures that lie buried in the heart of the glacier. They are not the only ones who covet these relics, however. You too are drawn to the mystery of the glacier's sunless heart and the secrets it holds. As you delve deeper into the dark and treacherous caverns, you will face untold horrors and bone-chilling dangers. The very gods of winter's wrath seem to be working against you, determined to keep the secrets of the glacier buried forever. But you are not one to be deterred by such fearsome opposition. You press on, driven by a thirst for knowledge and a desire for power. Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden is a tale of dark terror that revisits the flickering candlelights of civilization in Ten-Towns. In the frozen wastelands that surround these frontier settlements, danger and mystery abound. Can you unlock the secrets of the glacier and save Ten-Towns from the Frostmaiden's everlasting night? Prepare yourself for a journey into the heart of darkness, where every step forward could be your last. The fate of the world hangs in the balance, and the secrets you uncover may shatter everything you thought you knew. Will you rise to the challenge and emerge victorious, or will the glacier claim you as its frozen prize?
How to prepare
To get started on our D&D campaign, there are a few things that players should prepare beforehand. First and foremost, a good webcam, mic, and internet are necessary to make sure that everyone can communicate and hear each other clearly. While it's not mandatory, having a good understanding of the rules is always helpful, so feel free to look them over before our session. Additionally, we'll be providing a session 0 checklist to go over, which will help you know when to ask questions, voice concerns, and add comments. Since we'll be playing on a VTT, there won't be any in-person rolling, so players won't need to bring their own dice. And there's no software or sign-up required, except for Discord. To help set the mood and get into the spirit of the game, I'll also be providing some movie and other inspirational resources, so that everyone can feel fully immersed in the world of our campaign. So get ready to roll some dice and embark on an epic adventure together!
What I provide
As your DM, I'll be bringing my expertise, creativity, and enthusiasm to every session. In addition to crafting a thrilling and immersive storyline, I'll also be providing resources and tools to help bring our game to life. I'll be bringing a collection of monsters to challenge and inspire you, as well as a D&D Beyond link for the rules, which we'll use to create our characters during session 0. And to help you visualize our game world, I'll also be providing detailed maps that will help you navigate through the adventure. While I won't be providing physical dice or illustrations of your characters post-game, I will be providing a wealth of resources and support to help you get the most out of our campaign. Whether you're a seasoned player or brand new to the world of D&D, I'm confident that we'll have an amazing time together. So get ready to embark on an epic adventure, and let's make some unforgettable memories together!
As a responsible and caring DM, I take player safety and comfort seriously. That's why I use safety tools such as Lines and Veils, and I make sure to go over these tools in detail during our session 0. Additionally, I provide a space for players to discuss their boundaries and preferences, so that we can create a game that everyone can enjoy. After each session, I offer a post-game check-in to make sure that everyone is feeling okay and to discuss any issues that may have come up. And throughout the campaign, we will have weekly or semi-weekly voice chats to stay connected and address any concerns that may arise or to work on PC fit. To make sure that everyone can participate fully, our sessions will be held via Zoom with subtitles and recordings, that one if someone misses a game they can catch up. We will also be using FoundryVTT for our gameplay, and PCs will be generated during our session 0 via D&D Beyond. I'll provide a campaign link so that everyone can access all the content and get started right away.

How will character creation work
Character creation is one of the most exciting parts of any D&D campaign, and we'll be doing it together during our session 0. Using D&D Beyond, we'll create our characters and then port them over to FoundryVTT, where we'll be playing our game. We'll be starting at level 1, but don't worry, early progression is quick, and we'll be leveling up in no time. When it comes to stat generation, we'll use a method that we all agree on to make sure that everyone has a fair and balanced character. And for leveling up, we'll be using milestone leveling, so that we can make sure that everyone is on the same page and progressing at a good pace. This game will include "secrets" that I will give out durning session 0.
