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.

Hi, when I downloaded the for this title, it seems to be of some completely unrelated ice caves instead of the locations described in the pdf. I see from the last update that the maps were reorganized on the 15th, did something get mixed up?

There's been a DMsGuild bug that was swapping zip files with the same name across different titles. I've reuploaded the files in a zip called "Shilku" and that should resolve the issue. Please let me know if you need anything else and thank you for bringing this to my attention so I could fix it!

Spoiler if you are a player stop.

There is a reference to an airship crashing by one of the NPC's. Yet looking at the TOA materials those would be so far away they wouldn't be visible, is there another airship encounter I'm not seeing?

Two I see in TOA: Stargoddess (new crash but and Narwhal (old crash)

On pg. 9, Yutmus is referring to the Star Goddess wreck. It assumes that he explores the jungles a bit and roughly 10 days ago saw the ship falling out of the sky somewhere to the north. By my estimates it's a little over 100 miles north, but maybe he was coming down the north side of one of the peaks of flame mountains at the time and the ship fell from pretty high up. It's just meant to be a little a hook to entice characters to visit that location later.

Hi Pablo,

We unfortunately don't currently have a Fantasy Grounds version for this product. We may add one in the future, but it's not currently in the works.

It seems I was mistaken. We just had the entire Tomb of Annihilation DMs Bundle converted to Fantasy Grounds here:

Hope that helps!

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.
