It Sleeps Beneath The Waves


Banner for It Sleeps Beneath The Waves

A 4 - 6 hour aquatic Cosmic Horror/Body Horror one-shot for 4th Level Characters

Fortune’s Death was once known as one of the most infamous pirate ships in the Sea of Swords. But things have changed since the death of her former captain. Now, in order to quell the unrest among the crew and bring the ship back to its former glory, her current captain leads them to the Trackless Sea, after receiving information about a treasure that might lie under the sea. Too bad that YOU and your fellow crew members know only the surface, not what sleeps beneath the waves.

1. A nautical adventure with alien terror for 4th level characters. 2. A cosmic threat from the Far Realm that will make your skin crawl. 3. A horror adventure that combines Pirates of the Caribbean with your favorite horror movies such as Alien, The Thing, and even video game like Dead Space. 4. Separate art assets for NPCs and monsters (original illustrations and maps). 5. Multiple hooks, paths & endings for different experiences each run. 6. Customized sanity (or insanity rules), specific infection rules, and Character Secrets inspired by Icewind Dale: Rime of the Frostmaiden.

"This is a morbid, monstrous delight that will be incredible amounts of fun with the right group and open communication. I continue to be amazed by the twisted brilliance of the Power Couple™. This really is a nasty, pulp, classic romp into the bowels of darkness and paranoid on the open seas, underwater and in the tendrillous, eye-filled mouth of madness!"

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.
