About the adventure

"As a beastly army approaches Ten-Towns from the south, heroes take the lead in fortifications and defense. But can the heroes’ optimistic hard work overcome the worst enemy—the towns’ distrust of one another? A Four-Hour Epic Adventure for 1st through 4th-Level Characters" This adventure fits seamlessly into your Rime of the Frost Maiden campaign. It explores the horrors of war and the importance of unity as key themes. It features a good deal of freeform RP and explorative play, with one or two very challenging combats. This adventure can be ran in both regular and Adventurers League legal styles. After play is finished, each player will be sent a complimentary copy of the adventure, to share with their own groups.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Players should bring completed characters. You can choose to have your character on D&D Beyond, paper and pencil, or however you like. You can roll physical or electronic dice. Players should download and install Zoom (a link will be sent out prior to the game). We use both video and voice in this game, and players must have both to play through the tale. Players should have Roll20 and be basically familiar with the VTT.

What I provide

I will host the Zoom meeting, and I will provide the story, soundboard, and voice acting my players are accustomed to.

Characters should use point buy or standard array, and have average number of hit points by level, with no more than 1 common or uncommon magic item.
