[Youtube video from this product at the end of the page]

"This is a seriously impressive array of encounters of all shapes and sizes with all manner of ways to approach them. [...]
The maps are gorgeous and Zeuch clearly knows what he is doing and has a passion for aesthetic and playable maps, as well as adding their own great creatures and chilly variants to bring new life to the cold north." - Curse of Sebs

Encounters in Icewind Dale is a 5e supplement that consists of 24 encounters ranging from short to long; a few even could be considered micro-adventures!

The supplement is meant to enrich your game, whether it takes place in Icewind Dale or in some other arctic setting. Note that this product was released before Rime of the Frostmaiden.

The encounters are based on exploration, social interaction, and combat. Combat encounters vary between levels 1 and 7.

What's included?

  • A 52-page PDF with the supplement

  • 13 new creatures

  • 3 new magic items

  • 16 unique, detailed maps, for a total of 24 counting their different versions, 6 of which are Random Encounter maps

Any feedback or comment on the adventure is most welcome!

This happened to me once but if you reload, it works. It's probably a temporary/random bug.
Let me know if you still can't see them.

Awesome supplement, but it would be great if maps could be included as separate files so I could use them in Roll20 or show them to players in other ways.

Hi Arseni! The product contains a file named Maps.rar, which is a compacted file with all maps.

Can you try to check if it's available for you to download it?

This is a seriously impressive array of encounters of all shapes and sizes with all manner of ways to approach them. The encounters are written in such a way that they slot in anywhere and provide multiple possible reactions, outcomes and results, so you can have some idea how the players will react which is incredibly helpful, both in the moment as if you decide to use this to spring random encounters on your players and self, or if you are using the thought and flavour in the behind these encounters to inspire and aid with prep because there are seeds in them there encounters!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
