Assault from the Astral

After crash-landing onto the Material Plane, a strange, otherworldly ship brings with it an unexpected wave of piracy, hideous creatures from the bottom of the Trackless Sea, and a notorious foe who has been awakened from the deep, intent on destroying the world as you know it.

The adventurers must set sail along the Sword Coast, fending off the pirate attacks while putting together the fractured puzzle that will reveal the true villain.

A Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition Campaign for characters from 1st - 12th level.

I REALLY want to buy this, but I'd love a PDF + Hardback combo. Are you planning on releasing a print by order? If so, roundabout when do you think you'd release it? Lastly, would love a fresh link to that discord ;) Thanks!

There will never be a Print on Demand version of this product, it's out of my control unfortunately. You can get a copy printed from a local supplier yourself once you've purchased it.

Here's a link to the Discord:

I see now you have a VTT version. Unfortunately I've already bought the first version. Are the encounter maps still black and white?

The VTT version is specifically a Fantasy Grounds .mod file. The maps are still B&W, however many folks in this discord channel have made colour versions:

Is there a grid scale in the book to properly fit the maps to a vtt?

Hi Justin,
Each map has a scale with it - typically 1 square = 5 feet, though there are some where 1 square = 10 feet. I’ve put them into VTTs myself with no trouble. There’s also a Fantasy Grounds version of that’s your VTT of choice!

For the asking price, I was definitely hoping there were better maps to use then plain boring white maps with little detail, such a shame.. Let alone there are several errors that need addressing. the map for Grotto has no location G5 yet the map says there is, and its missing area g4 and I havent even gotten through the entirety yet!

worth maybe 20 bucks, but 40 is a rip off.

That right there is the pure definition of a seller who knows they aren't to par and do not care if they rip you off.

Wont even address their poor editing either? Nor do they plan on fixing/updating it?

Ridiculous..

Buyer beware.

Unless its on sale, do not give this guy your money unless you plan on spending hours generating better maps than they provided and doing the proof reading they should of bothered with.

Buyer beware - it’s a bit late for that! This is perhaps the best selling full campaign on the DMsGuild.

This campaign is more than up to par - it’s been lauded as the best 3rd party campaign written and even recommended over some of the WotC material.

Additionally, for each sale I only see $20, DMsGuild takes the rest, so don’t worry about paying me too much.

If you’re willing to adjust your tone, I’m sure you’d be welcome in this Discord which is filled with fans of the campaign sharing content, including full-colour maps and NPC tokens:

Hi, first off thanks for a great module! I'm running this for my friends and they're really enjoying it having just defending Baldur's Gate. My only issue is the map classed as the Player's Map of the Sword Coast is full of spoiler locations. Is it possible to provide a Player's Map of the Sword Cost where you have removed the module-specific locations ? Thanks again.

Thank you so much! The map supplied with the adventure does contain potential spoilers. I recommend giving this map to your players:

Ah, I do already have the WOTC map but the scale is off so I was unable to drop the module's "player map" under it in my VTT. Nevermind, I shall make do I'm sure and thank you again for a most awesome module sir.

Possibly a little late for a reply, but a year or so ago I made a revised version of the free WotC map that is available here: https://www.reddit.com/r/DnD/comments/gabiey/map_map_of_the_sword_coast_5e_revised_and_expanded/

This version of the map is spoiler free and suitable for players, while providing DM's (especially VTT DM's) the ability to easily add spoiler locations. In addition, it significantly expands the locations included on the original map. I actually specifically made it while I was planning to run Call From the Deep, so all of these campaign locations are included.

I really wish there were a hardcover or softcover version. I read a bunch of reviews and got really excited about this before realizing it's digital, which is unplayable for me unfortunately. I'll have to go with my second choice instead. Well done to the creators, this looks super fun and I hope I get the chance to play it someday.

Love this module, using it in Foundry VTT and all of the maps and everything went in really easily. I do have a question. To make it a little easier do you have a master list of all of the monsters and things the module contains so I could start gathering tokens?

I have a quick question. What is the best way in your opinion, to handle a confrontation with Thiliossk. I have 5 level 4 players entering Berrazo, and I'm afraid it will be a TPK if he attacks like suggested in the module. I've been thinking about if they fight him he could capture them and implant them with tadpoles, but that causes another problem. Do you believe it would be best for him to just leave the area if he becomes aware of them to avoid being discovered?

Loving this adventure and my party is loving it too (I homebrewed a little to add a flashy end to chapter 1, Turned Bren into a party NPC early in the chapter after his rescue, then into a mindflayer as suggested, had him lure the party into a trap, introduced Thiliossk as a teaser BBEG, had them escape, and had Thiliossk command Bren, some thralls ((mutants little nerfed, but party was lvl 4 so)), and finally lead a siege on the jarl's hold as the final arc of the first chapter, leaving the map in Bren's dead hands) but, I'm getting confused a little bit about the chapter layout after this. In chapter 2, are they expected to reach and stop all of the attacks, as in the timing is always attacks after the party arrives? And the side quests are used after that or before the attacks (I assume before)? Which then leads me to chapter 3 with a ton of cool side quests, but do I/should I, run them concurrently with chapter 2? There are a ton of quests a hooks, which ones would you suggest as most important to keep the...See more

Hi Darrian,

The adventure is deliberately flexible so that you can run all three cities one after the other, or just one of your choice. The side quests take place mostly in chapter 3, but again you can weave them into chapter 2 if you prefer. In terms of help guides, there is no such thing, but there is a Discord and a facebook group:

I keep looking at this adventure as possible follow up for my current group of players which would really fit the setting as far as I can estimate so far but "sadly" their chars are already level 6+ and might end up even higher at the end of the current campaign. As the character group itself is so fun with a really healthy dynamic we would like to continue playing these characters.
Is it possile to "scale" the encounters up to the respective level the group or would that totally break the adventure at some points as these high level characters have due to their arsenal of spells to many resource so any obstacles would be just to easy solved with a spell or two ?

You can absolutely scale the encounters up! I think a few others have done so in the past. I'd suggest letting them burn through Chapter 1 as written - there's not a huge amount of combat in there. Once you get to the pirate attacks on the Sword Coast you might want to consider swapping in some higher CR foes.

Glad you like the look of it! All of the maps, artwork, handouts etc. are in their own files, so it should be compatible with any VTT. I used roll20 to run it the last time I played through and it worked perfectly!

Browsing through the last chapter and I noticed Slarkrethel is CR 25, but in the chapter before that, the PC's only reach level 10. Will they be tough enough to handle him for the bossfight?

I know I'm asking this before reading it thoroughly. We're still in Chapter one and having a grand time! Very crazy and fun campaign so far.
Customer avatar
JVC P February 20, 2021 9:37 pm UTC
CREATOR
Level 10 is the minimum - in the games I've run they've been at least level 14 by the time they face Slark. If you're nervous about it, you can dock Slark's HP, or remove their legendary resistances!

Hope you enjoy the rest of the campaign!

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.
