Frostburn lists on Table 2–5: Deities of the Frostfell (42) Levistus as granting his clerics access to the domain Icebergs and Vatun as granting his clerics access to the domain Snow. These domains don't appear in Frostburn or its errata. Are more details about these domains available elsewhere?

    \$\begingroup\$ @KRyan I'm never entirely sure of the line between self-answering and disclosing my research so I figured I'd omit having checked the usual sources in case someone wanted to include that in an answer. Honestly, I suspect neither domain exists, but I'm hoping one of Frostburn's authors might've made the domains available unofficially. \$\endgroup\$ – Hey I Can Chan Apr 28 '17 at 15:26
  • \$\begingroup\$ There might be enough info in Frostburn + Spell Compendium to homebrew those domains, but almost exactly like R.O.U.S.'s, I don't think they exist. \$\endgroup\$ – Chemus Apr 28 '17 at 15:34

    \$\begingroup\$ @Chemus I'm pretty sure the game just doesn't need the Snow domain (the domains Cold or Winter are enough, thanks) so it's probably the remains of a previous draft. However, I think Levistus being able to grant his clerics the Icebergs domain may have been an attempt at humor, him floating around Stygia encased in a giant iceberg and all. (But I've nothing to back that up except my own wryness.) \$\endgroup\$ – Hey I Can Chan Apr 28 '17 at 15:59
  • \$\begingroup\$ No luck on finding iceberg, but now I want to run a cleric of levistus. \$\endgroup\$ – spade Apr 29 '17 at 6:47

People have asked about this occasionally for a long time (https://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?283457-D-amp-D-Frostburn-missing-domains ) It seems likely that they were either replaced by the 'cold' and 'winter' domains, or cut entirely and the entry not updated.

Anyways, if your using them for an NPC, or want to submit something to your DM to ask if you can use their is a fan suggested writeup of the domains here:
