I got this back when it was part of the AL-only resources, so can't post a verified review.

3/5

This module went down among my play groups as "that one with the goat." It did not go over well. Between the terrible dialect for Elisande (on a good day, it sounds Creole....on a bad day, it's downright offensive) and the murderous final encounter, halfway through the adventure, my players killed the goat, wanted Elisande to go away, and were just pretty much done with the Moonsea and everyone in it.

I suspect that running this at night, with candles, and setting a kind of Lovecraftian mood would have made it a much more welcome adventure, to be honest. It has all the elements of an Innsmouth game, but the execution (as written) is lacking. A good DM can save anything; this adventure would probably do well with some tweaks by a skilled DM.

Bought it on Dms guild login. I don't know how to merge them.

Stars: 5/5

It is known as the player killer in our german AL community, especially level 1 players will have a tough time staying afloat. Depending on if the group enjoys a challenge or not, I would adjust the encounter beyond what is advised in the adventure. If the group really doesn't like a deadly challenge, feel free to go 1 step below the normal adustments. Aside from that, like most DDEX1- adventures, i would always weave background information into conversations so that players feel like it is a deep story that is part of something bigger. That takes some more preperation but is definiatelly worth it.

So what is up with the reward for this story..

It says under a certain treasure section on a ship that there is 500SP, 500EP and 75GP in a coffer. Though when checking the final reward paragraph in the story it says the total in the coffer is (500SP, 500EP) totalling 55GP. Anyone knows how much to give?

A well done mod, and worth your coin to purchase.

1) It has great character/NPC interaction.
2) It has an interesting back story.
3) It moves the world forward with an introduction to an important NPC...and her friend!
4) It can be played many different ways, meaning player agency drives how things are done.
5) It has a solid magic item useful for all.

Your players will enjoy this mod, and it is well laid out for DMs to run.

Ya the typo's are a distraction but still a nice change from the standard dungeon run.

Might want to fix a couple of typos in the description. "livind", "scorge", "strikig", and "adventrue" should be living, scourge, striking, and adventure. ^_^ I don't know if anything in the PDF needs to be fixed though...

Thanks Noel. The Admins are working on getting the raw files from WOTC so the older seasons of the Adventurers League can be updated. Once we do, you should get an email from OBS telling there is a new version!

I played this at a friend's house and loved it. Lots of rich NPC interaction and a great mix of Lovecraftian & classic D&D elements. Several surprising turns in the middle and a killer final battle. highly recommended!

What's not to love? We have weird, inbred villagers, pirates, a chance to kill kobolds, pirates, and fighting on the sea. Did I mention pirates?

This was my favourite module from Season 1.
An investigation, a spooky village with clues, coastal raiders & a sea battle!

This module hit all my sweet spots and was a big hit each time I have run it.

This module has challenging aspects for DMs as well as player but the story is spectacular.

Format

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
