"It all began after my second divorce; I had fled to the high seas as a deckhand, cartographer, and raconteur extraordinaire, so stay awhile—and tip well!" - Daerdan "the Yarnspinner"

Daerdan's Tall Tales: Ten Seafaring Encounters is a free preview to the complete edition of Tall Tales: 101 Seafaring Encounters. This supplement features ten encounters from the complete edition, perfect for any nautical or Ghosts of Saltmarsh campaign. Nothing in this supplement boils down to a mere random table. Every encounter comes detailed with loot, characters, motives, twists, and advice on how to better tie the event into your campaign. Monsters found in the Monster Manual, Volo's Guide to Monsters, Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes are featured in this tome!

Within this supplement are:

  • Scaling Encounters and Tiers. Most encounters provide details on how to tailor these encounters to better fit your party's level. All four tiers of play are explored throughout the tome with more fearsome encounters (ala Release the Kraken! The Aerie Carrier, and Risen Ruins of the Corpse City).
  • Skill Challenges. Skill Challenges feature heavily in this tome, often as optional additions to an encounter. A relic from 4E, it's rules have been updated to 5th Edition. The adventurers will have to address issues with—gods forbid—their skills, not their swords.
  • Allusions. Fans of mythology and other nautical stories and content will be delighted through encounters like Moby Dead, We All Float Down Here, Murmaider: Scourge of the Seas, and A Rock and a Hard Place.
  • Indexed. Every monster and item referenced in this supplement is indexed with its respective manual and page number for your convenience. Almost three hundred unique monsters are used throughout Tall Tales.

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.
