The Final Enemy – a Ghosts of Saltmarsh DM's Resource


Saltmarsh is preparing for war. Merfolk, locathah, lizardfolk and human alike are banding together to face The Final Enemy: the sahuagin. Their numbers are vast and their fortress, immense. When the council decides to put together an elite strike force to gather information before the main assault, will heroes rise to meet the challenge?

The Final Enemy is the fourth adventure of seven in the Ghosts of Saltmarsh campaign book. It has the party going on a reconnaissance mission to a sahuagin lair followed by a full assault by the united peoples of Saltmarsh. The Final Enemy is a short adventure that is likely to take a few sessions given the immense size of the sahuagin lair. The focus of this adventure is on stealth and information gathering, although combat is likely inevitable for most parties.

In this document, we seek to make running The Final Enemy fun and memorable for you and your players, as well as giving you advice on how to fit The Final Enemy into a campaign. This document includes:

  • Advice on pacing the story and keeping the adventure exciting.
  • Alternate victory point tally method to give more depth to the first half of the adventure.
  • 3 full scale battlemaps primed for VTTs by Franz Warm – the enormous maps of the Sahuagin Lair in full and vibrant color, ready to use with your digital tabletop of choice!
  • DM's Notes for quick and easy reference at the table.
  • Monster Stat Blocks for every foe in the adventure arranged for swift and easy use.

I was disappointed that for the review about detailed there was not a "Crude map"" of the Lizard folk lair which is described in the adventure and would have been a good hand out to the players. The other maps are good. Feel this is an oversight which can easily be corrected in the future. -hint , hint-

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.
