Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more of Santa's savings, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

Danger at Dunwater is the second adventure of seven in the Ghosts of Saltmarsh campaign book. It has the party venturing into a lizardfolk lair to learn why the scaly humanoids are preparing for war – eventually making the characters responsible for establishing an alliance with the savage and distrustful lizardfolk.

In this document, we seek to make Danger at Dunwater 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 Danger at Dunwater – advice on how to move the adventure to the Forgotten Realms, an exciting sea encounter, a complete guide to handling the party's negotiations with the lizardfolk, and a simplified alliance point system.
  • 8 sample lizardfolk  complete with descriptions of appearance, personality and quirks, allowing you to insert an interesting lizardfolk NPC in your game on the fly!
  • 2 full-scale battlemaps primed for digital tabletop – an enormeous 140x72 map of the Lizardfolk Lair, as well as a 40x40 swamp map for random encounters and the Croc Hunt!
  • 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.

Room 4 has no way to enter even though it shows it on this site... What up with that?

About to run this after having taken a new to D&D group through LMoP. Super excited! Not that it's at all pressing, but are you going to do the last two chapters of GoSM? Great product, by the way, really helped get things organized.

so where does that Sahaugin ambush that you have in the sea approach come from? Did you add that? Because, you are spoiling the entire big reveal that they are the FINAL ENEMY by having them attach the party before they even get there. Sort of undercutting the climax of the U1-3 arc here.

Hi Mickey

Yes, it's added in, but it's quite optional. If you feel like it foreshadows the main plot in a nice way, you can use it – otherwise, don't bother! :)

I see the maps are primed for VTT but would they print for use on a f2f table?

Also, what is the dpi for the maps?

The sample map shows the secret doors, does the bundle include player versions of the maps without that and the room numbers?

Hi Paul!

The player version is included in the download and the resolution is 75 DPI.

Hope that helps :)

I'm enjoying the conversion to the Forgotten Realms so far, but notice that the swamp map is currently missing from the download. Solid product so far though!

Hi Johnny

Thank you for pointing that out - don't know what happened there, but I've uploaded it now, gridded and ungridded. Sorry for the inconvenience :)

And thanks for the kind words - don't hesitate to leave a rating or review, they help us out a bunch :)

Happy adventuring!

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.
