Heroes of Icewind Dale


Heroes of Icewind Dale features 13 subclasses, variant class features for every class, new spells, and new feats for your Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden campaign or any other game set in in arctic lands or dangerous frontiers!

Steeped in lore and brimming with flavorful character options, this player's companion provides new rules balanced by playtesting and careful revision. Heroes of Icewind Dale is designed to inspire unique ideas and stories, with all the info you need to know who your character is, how they fit into the world, and how they contribute to your groups' adventures. This book includes:

  • 13 new subclasses grounded in the lore of the Forgotten Realms yet archetypal enough to shine in any D&D game, such as: the mountain-prowling Wind Walker barbarian; frontier paladins bound by the old-school-inspired Oath of the Borderlands; the Sky Mage who masters the wizardry of air and flight; and the Witchbreaker, a new option for Matt Mercer's Blood Hunter class, inspired by the fantasy stories of Andrzej Sapkowski.
  • Variant class features to enhance the existing classes with new fighting styles, useful new favored terrain options for rangers, new metamagic options for sorcerers, customizations for a monk's martial arts style, new artificer infusions, and more.
  • Spells that draw on the primal power of the North, enhancing melee strikes with chilling frost, chaining foes with the unearthly fury of frozen Levistus, and summoning the earth-shaking power of a raging volcano!
  • New feats to ground characters more deeply in the setting and enhance their backstories, as you survive captivity by the unknowable Winter Fey, toughen up by braving the icy tundra, master whirling two-weapon combat maneuvers, expertly sail the Sea of Moving Ice, and more!

Written with thoughtful respect for the experiences of real DMs and players, Heroes of Icewind Dale aims to be a cut above most player option supplements and earn a place at your table with its high quality. To help you decide, the "Full-size Preview" includes the entire product, all 60 pages. Supporting this project will make it possible to create many more!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
