$3.99

The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh is the first adventure of seven in the Ghosts of Saltmarsh campaign book. It features undead horrors, smugglers, pirates (parrots and hooks included!) and an ominous threat of more dangers to come, as the adventurers must fight to unravel a smuggling ring delivering weapons to a tribe of lizardfolk.

In other words – there's plenty to deal with and more than enough to plan for, when running the Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh for your players. In this document, we aim to help you, the DM, make The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh a fun and exciting experience for both you and your players – and saving you countless hours of preparation in the process.

This download includes:

  • Running SSoS – extra advice on how to move the adventure to the Forgotten Realms, additional hooks to get your players started, tips on adjusting the adventure's difficulty, an example introduction to Saltmarsh and ideas on how to handle Ned Shakeshaft.
  • 3 full-scale battlemaps primed for digital tabletop – the maps show the Haunted House's ground floor, upper floor, cellar and caverns, as well as a complete map of the Sea Ghost. They come in both players' and DM's versions, and feature furnishings from Mike Schley's Schleyscapes.
  • DM's Notes – thorough sheets of notes condensing the adventure into convenient bulletpoints.
  • Creature Stat Blocks – all monsters of the adventure arranged on pages that are easily referenced at the table.

Format
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.
