Rime or Reason (AE01-03)
Can you endure the frozen wasteland of Icewhite Island to find the fabled Hoarfrost Flower? Brave the cold in the third adventure of the Across Eberron: Convergence Manifesto adventure path¸ optimized for 2nd level characters. Written for use with either Eberron: Rising from the Last War or the Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron by Keith Baker. Adventure Summary: Provost Nigel Faurious's research has revealed the location of an icy spire near the eastern side of Icewhite Island. The Provost needs the Hoarfrost Flower ¸ an artifact found inside this spire¸ to make his Convergence Manifesto a reality. Eager to complete his work as quickly as possible¸ the Provost previously paid for an expedition from the Deathsgate Guild to explore the icy spire at the same time the Clifftop Guild surveyed the Shining Valley in the last adventure. The Deathsgate expedition's ship¸ the Nightwood Cask ¸ was destroyed by the cold of the Risia manifest zone. They made it to the island on lifeboats and headed to the spire¸ hoping to use it as shelter until someone from the Deathsgate Guild comes to rescue them. The spire's builders are long gone and forgotten¸ but their traps and magic remain. Mror archeologists once found this place while in search of their ancestors that many believe hailed from the Frostfell. Only their camp remains in the foyer of the spire¸ where the party from Deathsgate waits. While the Deathsgaters' supplies dwindle¸ they argue among themselves on their next steps. Should they try and make it to shore and hope their ship somehow survived¸ continue to wait¸ or delve deeper into the spire to complete the task they were hired for?
