About the adventure

Winter has gripped Icewind Dale for 2 years now in an endless and unnatural Icy Grip. This campaign sees adventurers exploring the frozen expanses of the region, attempting to lift the curse that has locked Icewind Dale into a deeper cold and darkness than ever before. Artifacts of an ancient netherese city pose new and unexpected dangers and if that wasn't enough for you, rumors tell of a strange dragon set to destroy the Ten Towns of Icewind dale. The campaign has multiple endings, and how events unfold falls entirely on the choices of the player characters. This session is for players aged 17+, and will be a mix of about 50% roleplay and 50% Combat, though this of course can fluctuate depending on the party's actions in any situation.

Additional Details

How to prepare

You should read through the rules section on my discord ahead of gametime and take some time to consider what sort of character you want to play. You'll also need to install fantasy grounds classic if you dont already have it (dont worry, as a player you only need the free Demo version to play). Fantasy Grounds Demo Download Link: https://www.fantasygrounds.com/home/FantasyGroundsClassic.php You'll also need to download discord and join my discord server: https://discord.gg/yVUqgcr

What I provide

I'll be bringing a massive library of Digital 5th edition books/resources for fantasy grounds, maps, pregen character sheets (if needed), NPCs and terrible voice acting.

Gameplay details

Gameplay in this session will consist of medium-high difficulty combat and an equal measure of roleplay. Players are expected to be respectful of their fellow PCs, and some light joking over the course of the adventure is absolutely encouraged. After all, the point of DnD is for everyone to have fun.

How will character creation work

Characters will start out at level 2 and can be of any official race or class combination, UA classes are allowed but cannot be multiclassed. There will be a session zero where we can all discuss our expectations for the campaign and talk class and party composition. Characters MUST be created on Fantasy grounds to be easily used in the session. I'm willing to walk anyone unfamiliar with the programme through the process over voice chat. All Feats from official sources are allowed except for elven accuracy. Fully Made Pregenerated Characters are also Available for anyone that wants one. Characters should be made using the following stat array: "16, 15, 13, 10, 8, 6"

Players can expect

  • Combat/Tactics: Medium
  • Roleplay: Medium
  • Puzzles: Low
  • Experience Level: None
