Court of Stars: Prince of FrostD&D Insider Article
Winter's Chill
By Keith Baker

A new feature debuts this month with Court of Stars: The Prince of Frost. First described in Manual of the Planes, this archfey rules in the Feywild as one of its most powerful denizens. Surrounded by a devoted court and guarded by his blade of ice, the Prince makes for a chilling campaign villain.

A land exists where the sun never rises and the moon never sets, where the trees are forever dusted with frost. To the north, a mighty glacier rises to touch the sky. To the south, moonlight glitters off the surface of a vast lake, its dark depths hidden beneath a thick sheet of ice. This is the Vale of the Long Night -- the dream of deepest winter. If an ill-fated star lights your way, you might come upon a citadel that shines in the darkness -- a tower whose walls appear to be built from millions of shimmering diamonds. These are no earthly gems, however. This is the Fortress of Frozen Tears, and its walls are built from pure sorrow. The fortress serves as the home of the Prince of Frost, mightiest of the Winter Fey.
