Editor’s note: There are a handful of things I know for sure; one, Icewind Dale is cold. Two, dragons horde treasure. Sneak past…ha!
Morentherene has poison attacks and is extremely susceptible to fire. On core rules, the fight was a piece of cake once I buffed my tank with Protection From Fire spells, then unloaded fireballs, Wand of the Heavens, Arrow of Fire +2, and anything else that remotely looked like fire.
If you take the same approach, you’ll meet little resistance. Now about that dragon’s horde…(13000 xp, Dragon Scales, Morentherene’s horde: 3000 gold, Emerald x3, Diamond x2, Star Sapphire, King’s Tears). The Sable Cloak can be found among the pile of bones.
The scales we can use to craft armor a bit later in our adventure.
- Troll Claw Woods
- Goblin Waylay
- Forest of Wyrms
- Spider Lair
- Wyrm Cave
- Forest Paths
- Boareskyr Bridge
The Morentherene fight is also really easy if you have throwing daggers on you; for some reason a hit with a throwing dagger kills it in one shot, without even waking up.
