Theater of the Mind

About the adventure

Icewind Dale, a frontier of ice, wind, paranoia, and the influence of a vengeful god. The Frostmaiden has unleashed her wrath upon the Dale, plunging Ten-Towns into panic and paranoia. Brave the tundra, sail the lakes, and endeavor to solve the mysteries of this realm ravaged by Auril's fury. Just remember, there is one rule in this place, as immutable and cold as the ice: You're never really safe

Gameplay details

Content Warning: The general content of this game will be similar to a PG-13 movie (think Raiders of the Lost Ark). This adventure features themes of darkness, extreme cold, isolation, off-screen cannibalism, mental assault, ritual sacrifice, child endangerment, harm to animals, and murder along with other standard D&D tropes. Homebrew will be added to include subjects of insanity, paranoia, and psychological horror tropes. I have a standard open door policy for any and all concerns with regards to content. Just because a session has horror themes does not mean your experience should be identical to that of your character. I also practice the Full Deck Method which will be discussed at Session Zero
