Wizards of the Coast has released their latest set of Dice and Miscellany accessories, this time to go with the recently released Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden supplement. This is the setting featured in the Drizzt Do’Urden novels, so I would expect it to be a little dark and mysterious. This new Dice and Miscellany set definitely does not let us down. Right off you can see the beautiful dice set featuring a deep, dark metallic blue set with silver numbering. The color itself captures the feel of the setting even before getting to the rest of the accessories.

As with other sets, this one contains a collection of cardstock. The cards in this set includes one of Drizzt himself and then a collection of bestiary without stats. This is an awesome in-game piece as you can set it down on the table to show your players, allowing them to truly visualize what they are encountering. The backside of these cards has a journal-like entry from the eyes of Drizzt; not metadata but like how an adventurer would describe the being. Great for reading to the players to connect the game to the novels. The final piece of this set is my favorite – the overland map! I love maps as they help to visualize the environment and the terrain you walk across during your travails. It’s one thing to explain it; it’s another to have a visual aid to back it up. The backside of this overland map has a collection of city maps corresponding to locations the party will likely visit. These are kind of small and likely serve as more of a reference for the DM than as a visual aid to show the players. For example, it shows you the layout of the locale, what direction is north, and major locations. When the PCs are navigating, the DM can explain it better without having to constantly refer back to the book.

To cap off the Dice and Miscellany, you get yet another beautiful felt-lined dice rolling box.

I really like these Dice and Miscellany sets as they serve as great accessories for entire campaigns in a single bundle; you don’t have to purchase multiple products as you get it all here. And for those who love to collect dice, you get some new, gorgeous dice to go with it!!
