Ythryn Expanded Tower of Abjuration - maps and extra content for Rime of the Frostmaiden



The Tower of Abjuration was one of eight towers of magic in the ancient floating Netherese City of Ythryn. Now the tower, along with the city, lies trapped in a frozen tomb. The wizards of this great tower are either long dead or have lost their minds to madness. Yet the tower still holds powerful magic waiting to be tapped.

This supplement is one of several short expansions to the locations in Ythryn with the following objectives:

  • Expand on the Eight Arcane Towers, making each one its own mini-dungeon adventure with exciting challenges and clear direction for the DM.
  • Provide Detailed Maps, for an immersive experience in person or on a virtual tabletop, rather than a brief 'theatre-of-mind' scene.

This supplement presents the events that occur in the Tower of Abjuration as an alternate to those described on page 239 of Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden. As always, it is up to you how much of the content you want to use. It's perfectly fine to use some parts of this supplement while discarding others, or simply let the ideas presented here inspire new ideas of your own. This supplement assumes a party of 4–6 characters of 9–11th level.

Adventure Summary: After their arrival at the Tower of Abjuration, characters can search the lower floors for treasure on their way up to the top. At the top, characters must overcome a locked and trapped door and battle with magen guards for access to the pinnacle of the tower. At the uppermost floor, characters find a mysterious anvil that hungers for magical items. The anvil is willing to share a line from the Rite of the Arcane Octad in exchange for a magic item. After dealing with the anvil, characters battle with a tomb tapper on their way out of the tower.

Interesting idea on expanding the tower, the map is beautifully done. But the central encounter doesn't work as written. The Magen guarding the stairs in the penultimate room of the tower can't function inside an anti-magic field, unless I [...]

I enjoyed the writing the creator added a gridless map which I appreciated, I really enjoyed most of the content from the tower expansions and particularly like the tower of abjuration since it adds a way to introduce new pcs to ythryn through the saph [...]

I really enjoyed the entire expanded tower series -- I keep recommending them to anyone who runs Chapter 7. Ythryn deserves lots of extra love. The content included here is a really good seed. It's worth what I paid and I used it in its ent [...]

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.
