Journal Entry
"Akar Kessell tried to wipe out the Ten Towns over a century ago by dominating the minds of legions of barbarians and monsters, turning them into his own personal army. Only the intervention of Drizzt Do'Urden saved Icewind Dale. The vile wizard was slain, and his crystal tower, Cryshal-Tirith, shattered.

Over time, the shards of Cryshal-Tirith bonded with ice, creating the black ice. Meanwhile, Kessell, fueled by hatred and rage, has risen as a wight and once again walks the earth. He is gathering black ice in an attempt to rebuild Cryshal-Tirith, and his power reaches out into the minds of monsters and barbarians, calling them to him.

If the Ten-Towns are to survive, you must follow in the footsteps of Drizzt Do'Urden and slay Akar Kessell!"
