I’m pleased to present all of my resources for Sleeping Dragon’s Wake! Hopefully this should provide all of the auxiliary maps, tokens, and artwork you need to run the adventure. For those unfamiliar, D&D Beyond released a trilogy of adventures meant to be run Dragon of Icespire Peak, dubbed “Beyond the Dragon of Icespire Peak”. This is a resource pack for the second adventure in the trilogy: Sleeping Dragon’s Wake. As usual, this post is full of spoilers. Do not proceed if you are planning to be a player in this adventure!
Beyond Dragon of Icespire Peak Resource Packs
A lot of the maps below cover a pretty sizable distance. You’ll see that a standard 5-foot grid pattern ends up with pretty small squares. I felt it was especially important to provide all of these maps at 8K (or higher) resolutions so that everyone could zoom way in for individual encounters.
I felt Leilon Point was probably the map most-deserving of some attention in Sleeping Dragon’s Wake. Particularly because the map provided shows the Salt Cave entirely. Even the “Player Version” of the map has the Salt Cave revealed, and as such, makes it rather difficult to work with. So I’ve created a map with two versions: one with the Salt Cave and one without. I’ve, of course, added the obligatory eerie coastal fog to help set the scene.
I wasn’t originally intending to create a new Bronze Shrine map, but as I looked closer at the official Player Map, I realized it had a few things that bothered me. One of the biggest issues was that the original player map shows the molten bronze trap in the entryway. I’ve gone ahead and created a new version of the map, with my normal level of increased detail.
The Iniarv’s Tower map in Sleeping Dragon’s Wake is actually based off a map from Dungeon [Magazine] #73. I consulted the original map and its description when working on this part of the adventure and learned that the Sleeping Dragon’s Wake version had a few notable (but ultimately inconsequential) differences. For example, the cardinal directions on the original map were slightly askew, the staircases in the tower were in slightly different locations, and the original had a nice (albeit not perfectly accurate) illustration of the keep itself. I attempted to correct some of these features to the original map, along with adding an illustration similar to the original.
The original map for Claugiyliamatar’s Lair was definitely created in the mindset of providing minimal detail so that Dungeon Master’s could describe most of the scene verbally. My version attempts to fill in a whole lot of those details. I’ve provided two versions of this map: one with Claugiyliamatar’s hoard concealed with by the Wall of Force / gas cloud as described in the adventure – and another with the hoard exposed.
Kyryptgarden Forest Encounters
One the journey to-and-from Claugiyliamatar’s Lair, there are a couple of encounters that occur in the Kryptgarden Forest. I’ve created maps that should be appropriate for the Myrkul Patrol and Viantha Cruelhex encounters.
Shops and Point of Intereset Cards
As Sleeping Dragon’s Wake matures Leilon, many new locations are provided and old locations are changed. I’ve added and updated the POI cards. If you’re just checking out my site for the first time, be aware, many of these cards are NOT suitable for Storm Lord’s Wrath! Make sure you see my prior post for Storm Lord’s Wrath if you need POI cards for that adventure.
Monster & Creature Artwork/Tokens
Once again, I am attempting to fill in key missing pieces of artwork for monsters or creatures that exist in the adventure.
And, of course, tokens to go with each of these!
With this release, I’ve added new artwork and tokens for the newer NPCs, as well as included artwork and token for existing NPCs that are still relevant (i.e., most in the town of Leilon).
I often feel inspired to create renderings or illustrations of certain scenes, and Sleeping Dragon’s Wake was no different. Here are a few select scenes that I created for this adventure. Some are used as backgrounds in POI cards, but some are just meant to show other players. Like last time, I’ve also included a “Cover” image for the adventure!
I’ve had a number of people reach out to me and ask how they can pay or donate money for my work. Simply knowing others are getting enjoyment out of these creations is absolutely reward enough for me. However, if you feel you absolutely must give me something – I have created a Ko-Fi link so that you may buy me a cup of coffee. Thank you so much!
