The Curse of Skull Island


Start your Ghosts of Saltmarsh or nautical themed campaign with The Curse of Skull Island in this 2-4 hour level 1 adventure that walks players through the character creation process! A session zero is vital to a healthy campaign but we would all rather be playing than going over rules, expectations, and character creation so these sessions rarely materialize.

Not to worry, this adventure walks the players through character creation, and allows you, the Dungeon Master to go over all expectations, allowed rules, resources, and much more so you can kick off you campaign with a shared understanding of your campaign.

This adventure also includes the following free from RPG Designer Jeremy Forbing!

  • A new subrace for Dragonborn: Sea Dragon
  • A new Barbarian Primal Path: Path of the Ravager
  • A new Ranger Conclave: Mariners
  • A new Feat: Steady at the Helm

See you on the high seas!

Would it still be possible to play this with characters that are already made? I'm starting a brand-new nautical campaign with a bunch of level 1s, but we already had our session zero.

I'm intrigued by this but curious how it works. How do you weave the character building into the adventure?

If you check out the full preview you’ll get a glimpse of how the adventure accomplished this. I wanted to tie in character creation and an adventure itself, I think it works! Hopefully you do too.

Wonderful idea! Can't wait to see how it plays! Any plans on doing more of the same type of adventures if this gains enough traction?

Kelly, thanks for supporting me by purchasing this adventure! I am definitely considering doing Seesion Zero Adventures for other themes, so DMs can kick off their campaigns the right way!

Cool idea, but I'm a broke boy

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.
