[SPOILERS AHEAD] What your players will experience in Squidaddle!

The Great Asteroid Reef

This adventure begins on a spelljammer fishing boat that is on its way to the planet Sapphire in Alphaspace. The characters learn that Princess Squidalina needs help getting back home in the asteroid cluster known as The Great Asteroid Reef, and must escort her by traveling through Wildspace with air provided by their own gadabout. Watch your players protect their gadabout and Princess Squidalina as they venture into the reef!

Random Initial Attitudes

Many of the beasts in The Great Asteroid Reef awakened when the blue crystal asteroids began glowing - the earliest memory of civilization here. The encounters that your players will face can be tuned as having Hostile, Indifferent, or Friendly NPCs. Have your players work with, or against, the different NPCs as they bring Squidalina home to Squidlantis.

Shark Attack with a Wrecked Spelljammer!

As the characters reach the Inner Sanctum of The Great Asteroid Reef, a large hollow and holey asteroid where kingdoms like Squidlantis reside, a school of splashing tuna stampedes in your direction as they sense a stealthy scavver! Enjoy seeing your players Protect Squidalina from the "Great White Scavver" in the nearby wreckage of a Spelljamming Ship, "The Dutchman," and get her home safe.

All the Squid Puns

In this light-hearted adventure, the main NPC Squidalina speaks with a lot of squid puns. "You gotta be squiddin' me, that's kraken me up!" "Did you know that it takes ten-tickles to make a squid laugh?" Enjoy a relaxed session in this royal escort mission as your players encounter the different space beasts.

About the author: Brian’s love for the world of D&D started in 2000 with the PC game Baldur’s Gate, countless RA Salvatore novels about Drizzt and the companions, and naturally Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn. He started playing and running games for 5e in 2020. He enjoys running adventures with consequential player choices, a tight connected story, and a chance to learn more about the lore in D&D.

His first set of adventures, The Thin Veil Trilogy, involved reading more than 500 pages of materials from older editions to make sure that the way Planar Bleed and Planar Metaphysics, the Shadowfell, and Vecna were described were true to lore. Researching and finding ways to inject life into older stories is something he very much enjoys.

Hi! A bug has affected the files in DMs Guild where files and maps from one adventure of an author are present and available in another. It can happen when files across titles have the same filename (e.g. in Squidaddle and in Mighty Wings).

I have addressed this by prefixing the file.zips in this adventure with the adventure code (e.g. Hope your adventure preps go smoothly!

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.
