About the adventure

Backed against the grey-black stone, the town of Frostflint shelters itself amongst the peaks of the Ice Crown mountains. The blizzard winds howl and screech as they squeeze between the frost covered walls and sunken icy roofs of the abandoned homes at the edge of town. Sheltered in an alley between two large black stone buildings at the edge of the town square, two dozen people try to keep warm around pitiful campfires. At the mouth of the alley a man with ivory skies slung over his shoulder cautiously scans the blustery skies. The Prince of Ice Crown is an original 5e one-shot where survival and teamwork are paramount to surviving the dangers of the mountain top.

How to prepare

Before Game Day - Make a free account on Shard Tabletop and join the one-shot via the link in the Prep Materials section. Shard will facilitate battle maps, digital handouts, and dice rolling.

What I provide

Gameplay details

Players can expect a Rules As Written (RAW) game with a tension-filled build-up to a dramatic conclusion. Content Warning: Mystery, Environmental Horror, and Mild Gore. Safety Tools: X-Card - Simply put, this safety tool is a card with an X on it that participants in a Simulation or Role-Playing Game can use to edit out anything that makes them uncomfortable with no explanations needed. Players can also type an X in the chat or make an X with their hands to indicate. If more discussion is needed, a pause in gameplay will be used to privately discuss anything the player wishes. Lines and Veils - Players are encouraged to communicate any Lines (themes/content players don't wish to engage in) or Veils (soft limits) with the DM in a message ahead of the game, or as necessary throughout gameplay. Breaks - There will be one planned break at the midpoint of the adventure though other breaks can be taken as needed.
