LGBT D&D: Dragon of Icespire Peak
Join our Events Manager Eleanor for a Tier 1 adventure with the LGBT community in mind. Eleanor is part of the LGBT community herself, and strives to make people with non-traditional identities have an experience where they can expect to be respected at all times. This will be a weekly, drop-in event with new players accepted to the campaign at any time.
Driven from lands farther north by more powerful dragons, a young white dragon named Cryovain has descended upon the Sword Mountains, claiming the snow-capped range as its domain. Typical of its kind, Cryovain is dim-witted and cruel. The dragon patrols the skies around Icespire Peak, surveying its territory while hunting for food and easy treasure. With each passing day, the dragon’s domain grows as it ranges farther across the land, preying on anything it can catch with its claws or freeze to death with its icy breath. Sightings of the dragon are becoming more common, as are its attacks.
A crumbling fortress on the northeast spur of Icespire Peak serves as the dragon’s lair. Cryovain seized the icy fortress from a tribe of orcs, killing the orc war chief and forcing the tribe’s survivors to flee into the foothills and forests. Enraged by the death of their war chief, the orcs have called upon ancient allies—evil, shapechanging, half-orc spellcasters who bless and advise them.
Players who would opt to make their own characters should come prepared with characters at first level. Characters should be made using the Player's Handbook and up to one expansion book such as Xanathar's Guide to Everything. Eleanor encourages players to use Unearthed Arcana classes if they would like, but has forbidden players from playing Mystics.
