About the adventure

~~~ Forge alliances dark or light in this adventure of snow-capped mountains, frigid caves, and long-lost ruins writhing with forgotten magics. Uncover the horrors of Icewind Dale, unmask the dark secrets of the forever winter and the Frostmaiden's mysterious plot. Enter a region of unknown terrors that stalk the tundras. Can you be the hero to bring spring and summer back to a land trapped in this frozen nightmare? You are all that stands between the destruction of Ten-Towns and a myriad of enemies, intent on their own ascension. ~~~ Rime of the Frost Maiden is a perfect adventure for players who want adventure and battle mixed with survival in a harsh and desolate land--but we won't be using 5e, we'll be using Old School Essentials. Old School Essentials (OSE) is simple, forgiving, and focused on storytelling. It's rules-lite, fast paced, and perfect for the Play-by-Post format. What can you expect in a Rime of the Frost Maiden campaign? - A harsh and unforgiving environment. Icewind Dale is a dangerous place, even without the Frostmaiden's curse. The weather is extreme, the terrain is treacherous, and there are many dangerous creatures lurking in the shadows. -A rich and vibrant world. Icewind Dale is a land full of history and culture. There are ancient ruins to explore, lost treasures to find, and forgotten secrets to uncover. -A diverse cast of characters. You'll meet all sorts of people in Icewind Dale, from brave adventurers to hardy frontiersmen to cunning merchants. -A challenging and rewarding adventure. Rime of the Frost Maiden is a challenging adventure, but it's also incredibly rewarding. You'll face many dangers along the way, but if you're successful, you'll be hailed as a hero.
