Saltmarsh's Notice Boards | 30 Quest Seeds for Nautical Campaigns



"To all available sellswords and adventurers: The town desperately needs sentries, if only for a day. The council promises a generous reward in gold and perks. Visit the Administrator in the town hall at your earliest convenience. Pastries and tea will be offered." - Administrator Mandy Otter

This is a collection of 30 quest seeds to be used in Ghosts of Saltmarsh or any other campaign that leads the characters to a harbor town or island. The notes are written ambiguously, so that they may appear on the mainland or an island. The majority of them deal with themes common to the oceans, like pirates, haunted ships, and tentacled monsters. The quests cover Tier 1 and 2, meaning levels 1 to 8.


The adventure is presented to you by author Christian Eichhorn and editor R P Davis. You can contact me via mail ( or via Twitter (@squirrelgolem).

Some good ideas here, but the boards make references to NPC's or locations that don't exist in the adventure as written. The inclusion of the templates saves it, though, but means extra elbow grease for me. =/

Thanks! I'm glad to hear that :) Although there are fewer quests in this collection, you'll find that they are much more fleshed out. I hope that's a direction most people will welcome.

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.
