Buried decades ago, the great treasure of the notorious Captain Jadescale is waiting at the Mistcliff.

Though the exact location of the treasure is unknown, it’s said that the owner of the Shore of Dreams has clues about the location, although nothing is ever that straightforward when it comes to treasure.

Can you unearth the secrets of the treasure of Captain Jadescale or will you be undone by its mystery?

I'm excited to run this as a one-shot for some friends in a few weeks. I will be having a very large group, potentially up to 8 players. Would you recommend I scale them down to level 4 players or just up the HP on the monsters?

Florian E February 04, 2019 5:03 am UTC
Hey there, glad you are excited, we sure are, too!

We'd rather recommend to adjust the combat encounters. Add HP and or monsters, but don't scale the party down, or they might run into problems in room T4.

Absolutely love this adventure. My players fully enjoyed the villain as well as the asian theme. Grade A work Florian. Florians interview on the Crit Academy podcast was also fantastic. Can't wait to go thru it again a player.

Hi Florian,
Any interest in having this converted for use in the Fantasy Grounds virtual tabletop program? If so, shoot me an email and we can work out some details (

Hey Trevor,

first of all, thank you for reaching out and your interest in converting Shore of Dreams! However, we would be happy if future offers would be made to our mail address, which you can gleam from our twitter page. Currently we got some offers and are reviewing them for viabilty.

Ran this last night. Was a great 1 shot. took a little over 6 hours. Was on part with official WOtC content and the players had a lot of fun with the various islanders. Was a little tricky getting the players to eat any of the food after the thugs attacked but got 3 of them out cold, guards got 2 others outside while they were plotting and our 6th followed pisca so 5/6 with this paranoid lot wasn't bad. I would definitely say this is a little on the easy side for a party of 6 lvl 5s but I just scaled up the encounters a tiny bit and they all had a good fight on their hands. Funny enough they are considering making a guild and founding it on the island and basing it out of Yokotoro.

Hello Travis,

Thank you for your comment! Glad you had fun and could adjust the encounters accordingly! Don't worry, if they had been paranoid at this part. This is en par with all the playtests and reports we got. Hopefully your party can trust an Innkeeper ever again. Apologies, if not ;).

Is there a map of the village included?
Customer avatar
Florian E June 01, 2018 12:33 pm UTC
Hello Matthew,

thank you for your comment. No, there is no map from Yokotoro, as the adventure runs perfectly without this map. Even in some instances / variables where a battle map might be of use, any generic town map can easily substitue for Yokotoro, as it is built with that in mind.

Since the portion you can access via the preview deals with all the happenings within town, you can check upon yourself and make up your mind. We hope you are satisfied with what you can gleam from the preview.

If you have any further questions, feel free to comment below!

Is there any chance that this will be available in print in the future?
Customer avatar
Florian E May 08, 2018 9:06 pm UTC
Hello Nicholas,

thank you for taking the time to comment here. While we are exploring this option and have discussed this already with parties that managed to offer their products as Print in Demand, we can't announce anything yet.

We know, this is probably not the answer you searched for, but this is all we can offer at the moment. Please follow us on Twitter under @poisonpotpress as we will probably announce any decision in this regard there first.

Hey Nicholas,

By praising Olhydra and some prophecies coming together, we are now able to offer Shore of Dreams as a print title.

I'm currently running this module in my Tomb of Annihilation campaign and have to say it has been amazing so far! Personally $3 seems like a steal for the amount of amazing artwork and depth in NPC's that you get from this module. If you want to run something that is a bit more of a mystery, but also has plenty of combat, look no further!

This is the first product on DM guild that wasn't made by WotC that I not only didnt regret paying for, but want to run multiple times with different groups. So... Whens the next adventure coming out from you all?
Customer avatar
Florian E March 19, 2018 6:06 am UTC
Thank you for the praise!
We are already actively looking for where to go next and are busy brewing up the next adventure. Though believe us, it took us some time to get to Shore of Dreams. So it might take us a bit! However, whach our twittersphere, so you will be among the first to know, when to buckle up for the next ride!

Florian E February 27, 2018 9:58 am UTC
We did a small update and added the maps as non-pdf versions, so you can start using them on your virtual tabletop without any hassle to yourself! Hopefully this helps setting up games more quickly.

Sorry that it took a bit!

Kale M February 22, 2018 1:46 am UTC
Would it be possible to get some non-pdf versions of the map?
Customer avatar
Florian E February 22, 2018 4:42 am UTC
Hey Kale,

you can easily open the pdf for maps into fee products like GIMP, it lets you select the page you want to load in and export it with ease into any other format. That is why we choose to offer the map bundle as pdf files. So it can be handled by anybody, either quickly printed, or converted!

If you are still facing problems, you are welcome to reach us at poisonpotionpress(at)gmail(dot)com and we try to sort things out from there.

Florian E February 22, 2018 5:04 am UTC
Ooops, that should be free and not fee ;).

Played it last weekend as a one shot, took us more than 6 hours but it was a lot of fun and my players had no idea what was really going on. So great work!
Customer avatar
Florian E February 20, 2018 9:02 pm UTC
Thank you for taking the time to comment.

The six hour mark surely depends on some player reactions and how thorough they investigate each part.

However we are happy that all of you had a lot of fun during the time and I hope the... pay off delivered and is now a memorable moment your party cites in future adventures. We are sorry for all the well meaning NPCs in future sessions, that will now be under thorough scrutiny...

Just wondering, how did you make the cover art so that it looks like an official Dungeons and Dragons book?
Customer avatar
Florian E February 12, 2018 6:24 am UTC
Hello Matthew,

thank you for your comment. To get that great look on the cover (and on the interior, too) we hired a professional artist! A little bonus, since we are so proud of the work Raluca Marinescu did; You can see the full art on display at her artstation page:

I’m trying to figure out if this adventure is right for my campaign. What levels is it designed for?

The front cover says it's for 5th to 7th level characters.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
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.
