Maps, advice, & more for Rime of the Frostmaiden: Chapter 5

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!

Things get real for the characters in Chapter 5: Auril's Abode, as they must travel to the Island of Solstice to face dangerous guardians, treacherous guides, and haunting ghosts, undertake perilous tests, and – perhaps – even face off with Auril herself! But how do you make sure the chapter stays tense and exciting, how do you handle Auril's tests – and is it possible to run an encounter with a goddess without derailing the adventure's story?

This download, which covers Chapter 5 of the campaign book, 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 the following resources for Rime of the Frostmaiden Chapter 5 - Auril's Abode:

  • 4 Full-color, VTT-ready Maps. Four encounter maps that will help you run encounters in 'Underwater Shipwrecks', the 'Garden of Death' or by the 'Ice Statues'.

  • Auril's Role. Advice on how to handle Auril’s role in the chapter without disjointing the larger story – including an option to replace Auril with a fearsome frost giant druid!

  • Getting to the Island. Suggestions on how to make the characters’ journey to the island a bit more exciting.

  • Pacing Chapter 5. An in-depth discussion of the chapter’s pacing and a method for structuring the chapter so it remains tense and exciting.

  • Island of Solstice & Grimskalle. A closer look at each of the locations featured in Chapter 5 and advice on how to run them, including adjustments to Auril’s tests to make them more fun for both you and the players.

  • Nass Lantomir Handout. A handout for any player who’s character becomes possessed by Nass Lantomir.

  • 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!

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.
