The Bloodstone Lands is an accessory for AD&D 2nd edition.

Setting for the Icewind Dales trilogy of novels (The Crystal Shard, Streams of Silver; and the upcoming Halfling's Gem),[note 1] and the H-series of adventure modules which culminated in a battle with Orcus himself, the Bloodstone Lands are one of the wildest areas of the Forgotten Realms.

In this sourcebook, the author of the Icewind Dales trilogy explores this frozen region. Presented for players and DMs alike are people, places, and events that shaped the Bloodstone Lands—the political movers and shakers who carved their own brand of civilization from rocks and ice. In addition to this insider information, there are 10 new adventure scenario suggestions for all levels of play, from beginner to advanced, allowing campaigning in the Bloodstone Lands to continue long after exploring the mines and conquering Orcus.

Prepare then to enter the barbaric kingdoms of Vaasa and Damara—the Bloodstone Lands.[2]
