Dragons of Ice is a 32-page sourcebook for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st edition released in May 1985.

Official synopsis[]

The Dragonlace saga continues!

The refugees from Pax Tharkas are safe in the dwarven kingdom of Thorbardin. You are in the ancient port of Tarsis searching for ships to bear them out of the dragonarmy's reach.

But nothing in silent Tarsis is as you expected. The sea receded in the Cataclysm; no ship will ever set sail from Tarsis again. Draconians openly roam the deserted city streets. A new quest is before you: to find one of the legendary Dragon Orbs, mighty weapons that destroyed the dragons in ancient times.

Your path leads you to Icewall Castle, abode of an awesome white dragon and her minions. What awaits on the treacherous glacier? Can you defeat the evil guardians of the castle and recover the Orb of the Silver Dragon?

"Dragons of Ice" is the fifth Dragonlance adventure for use with the AD&D game system and begins the Second Book of the Dragonlance saga. You can play this adventure by itself, or as part of the grand quest that spans the entire Dragonlancestory.

An adventure for characters level 6-9 Written by Douglas Niles
