Dark Duchess revised

Spoiler alert This document contains major spoilers for the Dark Duchess quest in the Rime of the Frostmaiden adventure. Stop reading and ask your Dungeon Master if you are playing that adventure.


The Dark Duchess quest in Rime of the Frostmaiden ends with the characters facing Arveiaturace, a blind white dragon they’re trying to steal treasure from. Arveiaturace is a tough challenge rating 20, while the characters are around 7th level at best. Although the adventure suggests ways to approach the encounter, the Dungeon Master must exercise extreme caution, considering Arveiaturace’s capacity to eliminate the characters in a single turn. This document elaborates on the adventure’s suggestions, and it provides a structured approach to orchestrate the confrontation. The aim is to provide players with a sense of agency and involvement while maintaining the gripping narrative tension of confronting a significantly mightier adversary.
