Attack on Saltmarsh

A capstone adventure for Ghosts of Saltmarsh or a chance to punch giant monsters in the gut.

An ancient prophecy foretells the coming of a great evil.
“When the sea rains into the blackened sky and the dwellers of the deep gorge themselves on living flesh, Ujiak returns to ravage the world.” So sayeth a wise seer.
Only a mighty band of heroes can prevent the coming dark age—with extra-planar technology and superior firepower, that is.

Attack on Saltmarsh is a 4 to 6-hour adventure designed for four to six 11th to 13th-level characters. It is optimized for five characters with an average party level (APL) of 12. To run the adventure, you need the fifth edition Player's Handbook, Dungeon Master's Guide, and Monster Manual. It is a dark adventure that features monsters devouring humanoids. Player discretion advised. Although Saltmarsh serves as a backdrop for the adventure, any coastal town setting is suitable with minor alterations as given in the text.


This adventure is presented to you by author Christian Eichhorn and editor John Parker. You can contact me via mail ( or via Twitter (@squirrelgolem).

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.
