Sunblight & Light's Destruction – an Icewind Dale Rime of the Frostmaiden DM's Resource (maps, cheatsheets, advice)


Maps, advice, & more to help you run Sunblight & Light's Destruction!

Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden is a chilly campaign that will take characters from 1st to beyond 10th level, as they face frosty foes, deeply buried dangers, and dark deities, while reshaping the fate of Icewind Dale – and perhaps the entire Sword Coast along with it!

One of the most exciting concepts in Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden is the characters' collision with the evil duergar Xardorok and his chardalyn dragon in Chapters 3 & 4. But, while these chapters present an extremely interesting premise, they are also extremely difficult to run – in no small part because of the way the scenario is set up and presented in the book, as well as the somewhat restrictive and confusing travel rules provided by Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden.

This download, which covers Chapter 3 and 4 of Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden, provides you with tools and thoughts that will help you make Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden an exciting experience for your players – and much more manageable for you to run.

This download contains:

  • Starting Chapter 3. Advice on when and how to start Chapter 3, including an overview of how the characters can be lead organically to Xardorok’s fortress, and how Chapter 3 and 4 fits into the rest of the book’s chapters.
  • Running Chapter 3. A walkthrough of the content in Chapter 3, including an alternate way to set up the character’s chase of the chardalyn dragon and the introduction of Vellynne, as well as an in-depth guide to running the characters' infiltration of Xardorok's fortress.
  • Dragon Scourge. Adjusted travel rules that actually give the characters a chance to catch up with the dragon before it destroys all of Ten-Towns, a complete overview of the dragons’ path of destruction, and a map of Ten-Towns with distances measured out to help you plan out and prepare for Chapter 4.
  • Showdown! A step-by-step walkthrough of the characters’ inevitable showdown with the dragon in Chapter 4, including suggestions and adjustments that will help make the confrontation as exciting as possible.
  • Vellynne’s Quest. An in-depth look at Vellynne as a quest-giver and various changes you can make to ensure that the characters are properly motivated to follow her.
  • 3 Full-Color, VTT-ready Encounter Maps. Three encounter maps showing the ruins of Ten-Towns, which you can use to run encounters during the showdown with the chardalyn dragon.
  • Encounter Sheets. Most of the creatures from the chapter arranged neatly together on sheets so you don't have to flip through multiple books at the table!

Is there any way to get the art from the book so that I could use it as handouts for my players? There's some really cool pictures of the Dragon that I'd like to show them

Man this guide is so good. I wish the older SKT products had this kind of quality.

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.
