Waterdeep: A Tail of Two Fishies (Fantasy Grounds)

Waterdeep: A Tail of Two Fishies (Fantasy Grounds)

MOD (Virtual Tabletop)

This is the Fantasy Grounds version. The PDF version is here.

Waterdeep: A Tail of Two Fishies is a comedic heist adventure to steal the Xanathar's goldfish Sylgar from right under the beholder's eyes.

This is a five-hour adventure for 1st to 4th level characters. When playing this adventure, expect to encounter any of the following: a talking goldfish, a table-flipping bugbear, a gnome with ichthyophobia, robot beholders, a disco dance floor, a giant slot machine, a book titled "Wizardry for Dummies," and a chance to steal from a laundry list of magical artifacts out of the Xanathar's personal treasury. This adventure works well as a one-shot or as part of a Waterdeep: Dragon Heist campaign, and there are instructions for inserting the adventure into any number of different places in Dragon Heist.

The module has been edited from the original adventure to maximize its usability on Fantasy Grounds. Exceptional care has been taken to translate information and handouts into the digital format, make rollable tables for the random effects, make traps and encounters easy to run, add links for DM convenience, and so on.

Xanathar's Guide to Civilization

In addition to the adventure itself, this product also includes a separate module called "Xanathar's Guide to Civilization," which is a player options supplement featuring options that work well in a city-based campaign, especially in Waterdeep. The supplement includes the following:

  • Three Subclasses:
    • The Duelist, a strategic fighter that shifts between different stances for different situations.
    • The Exorcist, a monk that specializes in banishing evil spirits and supernatural beings.
    • The Falconer, a ranger who bonds to a hunting bird and fixes many of the beastmaster's biggest problems.
  • Three Backgrounds:
    • Adventurer Fan - You worshipped a famous adventurer, and now you want to follow in their footsteps.
    • Agent of the Eye - You served the Xanathar Guild as a smuggler, an assassin, or a veterinarian.
    • Reformed Cultist - You were once a member of a horrific cult, and now must live with your dark past.
  • Eight Feats
  • And insightful commentary written by the Xanathar!
The classes, backgrounds, and feats have been fully implemented in Fantasy Grounds. In addition, the module includes an effects library for all of the class features and feats in this supplement, implemented as pregenerated characters. Any player can simply drag the effects over from the actions tab to copy them.

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.
