Icewind Dale: Strange Encounters | A Rime of the Frostmaiden Supplement


Icewind Dale: Strange Encounters

Strange encounters for wilderness travel in the North.

This product includes thirty encounters with new stat blocks and NPCs for campaigns in and around the Icewind Dale, most prominently Rime of the Frostmaiden or Storm King's Thunder. Fight off threats like duergar pain sledges and swarms of flesh-eating hares—or enjoy light conversation with ancient land whales or sentient haversacks.


These encounters are presented to you by author Christian Eichhorn and editor John Parker. You can contact me via mail ( or via Twitter (@squirrelgolem).

The encounters have the seed of brilliance; they just need more fleshing out to be excellent. Players do all sorts of crazy things. It would help to have notes about at least a couple of the more common outcomes.

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.
