    About the adventure

    The sun no longer graces the lands of Icewind Dale; only a cold nightmare remains for its inhabitants. For the past two years, the sun has vanished, taking with it the warmth, light, and life it once bestowed. Now, only the aurora borealis for a few hours each day pierces through the frozen darkness that persists, illuminating the horror left behind by the vanishing of the sun. Each character will have the opportunity to represent one of the Ten Towns, the sole remaining living settlements in the area, and save for a few isolated groups. Generations ago, the wise leaders of these towns forged a resilient alliance, standing firm against the onslaught of savage orcs, ice dragons, and the malevolent Crystal Shard, "Crenshinibon," its mark still etched upon the land. Now, a new era dawns, calling for renewed collaboration among the towns. As their representatives will you bring unity and help solve the issues that bring division or fall and perish a frozen white death? This game is tailor-made for adventurers eager to express their characters' stories and reshape the destiny of Icewind Dale. Your actions could pull it back from the brink of annihilation or thrust it even closer to that precipice. As the saviors or destroyers of a beleaguered populace, you embody their last glimmer of hope. However, not all town leaders are as virtuous as they appear; navigating your town's interests, your personal inclinations, and the dynamics with fellow players could lead to an interesting adventure, to say the least. What can you expect from the adventure itself beyond what we will do together for your character? 1. Immerse yourself in the intrigue of Frostmaiden's history and unearth the divine secrets that created this land's fragile state 2. Arm yourself with the unique, maddening artifacts exclusive to this adventure module. Forged through duergar madness and desire, these items will help you unleash your strength! 3. Show your curiosity and intellect by revealing the dark secrets buried under the ancient ice, dylight could not reveal them but perhaps now in the dark, the eyes of those who are willing to see the truth can see them

    Gameplay details

    🗒️ I gravitate towards games that emphasize immersive roleplay and empower players to make meaningful choices, it's worth noting that in DnD, combat is an integral part of the experience, and you can expect it be an obvious part, I just don't enjoy combat slog fests. 🗒️ I am open to incorporating homebrew content and Unearthed Arcana materials to enhance the uniqueness of our player characters, but I'd like to take the time to carefully review these materials beforehand. I know that everyone gets excited about homebrew and I am willing to work with you but I get the final say, don't expect a blanket approval UI need to read it first. 🗒️ This adventure is tailored to embrace the essence of player agency, encouraging exploration and survival elements within the genre.
