Secrets of Shilku - maps and extra content for Tomb of Annihilation

Secrets of Shilku - maps and extra content for Tomb of Annihilation


In the southwestern corner of Chult lies a ruined settlement called Shilku. The village has recently been re-inhabited by albino dwarves, fighting to survive in the wilds of Chult. The land is plagued with evil firenewts who bask in the volcanic region. As the dwarves seek to reclaim key locations to their heritage, an unseen force sews malice, giving power to the firenewts' cause. 

This supplement to Tomb of Annihilation expands on the locations of Shilku, Hrakhamar, and Wyrmheart Mine and the character Withers. It is meant to make these locations more exciting and manageable for both the DM and the players. The document includes: 

  • A New Location - Shilku Outpost with a Map, which will give life to the Shilku Bay location. 
  • A New Location - Mount Todra with a battle map, to expand on the firenewt sub-plot from Hrakhamar. 
  • Additional Adventure Hooks, providing the characters with a reason to travel to Shilku. 
  • Random Encounters & Discoveries for Shilku Bay, including an entirely new encounter location, Mount Todra, complete with its own encounter map. 
  • Expanded Hrakhamar and Wyrmheart Mine, offering suggestions on how to run these locations, as well a mine cart chase scene, which is certain to be epic! 
  • Expanded History & Lore, which elaborates on Shilku and the albino dwarves' history, and foreshadows Withers in the Tomb of the Nine Gods. 

This supplement provides several new ideas on how to run Shilku, Hrakhamar, and Wyrmheart Mine from Tomb of Annihilation. It is useful to first read the sections about these locations in the official campaign book before reading this supplement. 

As always, it is up to you how much of the content you want to use. It's perfectly fine to use some parts of this supplement while discarding others, or simply let the ideas presented here inspire new ideas of your own. 

This supplement assumes a party of 4–6 characters of 4–5th level. Expect 8 to 12 hours of additional content in addition to what is presented in Tomb of Annihilation.

Rules Edition(s)
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.
