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

    Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild The Tower of Illusion 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 Illusion as an alternate to those described on page 255 of Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden. Additionally, this supplement references the Hall of Silk described on page 244 of the book. 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 Illusion, the party will be greeted by the programmed illusion of High Illusionist Ajamar. Ajamar asks the party to perform a scene of the play he wrote in his final hours in exchange for any information he was programmed to hold (including a line of the Rite of the Arcane Octad). The party will have to perform the scene as best they can, suffering the consequences of a poor performance at the hands of the twisted illusory audience. Once the party completes the scene, Ajamar's illusion provides the party with the information they seek. Additionally, Ajamar provides a small riddle giving the party a chance to claim some extra treasure in the tower. Follow me on DMsGuild to be notified about future releases in this series!

  • Fantasy Grounds Combat Automation

    Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild This is an EXTENSION for use with the Fantasy Grounds VTT and specifically the D and amp;D 5E ruleset only! This extension allows to fully automate combat for player characters. Main Feature 1: Automating actions This extension will automatically execute actions one by one when you click on a button to the left of the weapon/spell/power name (see picture). By default, all actions will be used in the order from left to right. If the attack misses or the save fully succeeds, the actions afterward will not be executed. You can change the number of actions executed by default in options. You can limit the number of actions per spell by putting "- and gt;#" in spell/power name, where # is the number of actions to execute (e.g. "- and gt;2" will only execute the first two actions). Shift-clicking use power button will not execute any actions. Feature 2: Expending spell slots on cast and spell upcasting This extension will also automatically expend the appropriate spell slot when you click on a star button ("use power" button). If the character has both spell slots and pact magic slots the priority will be pact magic - and gt; spell slots. Upcasting spells is possible by first entering the intended cast level. However, you will need to adjust the effect of the spell manually (in many cases as easy as right-clicking to add additional damage die). You can set the default upcast level for each spell by adding "@#" in the spell name (e.g. "@3" will try to cast the spell at 3rd level). Ctrl-clicking the button will execute all actions, without expending a spell slot. Alt-clicking executes all actions as ritual casting (without expending slot and adding 10 minutes to casting time). Double-clicking the "Upcast" field displays a help message. This extension can be combined with the "Instant Dice" extension to achieve instant combat. This extension was developed and tested for both Fantasy Grounds Unity and Classic.
