This is the sea-faring adventure campaign you've been looking for. The content and presentation easily rivals and even surpasses some of the hardback adventures published by WotC itself. This adventure is packed with everything you could want all wrapped up in a "Pirates of the Carribean"/"The Call of Cthulhu" mash-up. Even if you don't run the entire adventure the book is packed full of encounters, NPCs, monsters, magic items, random tables, and other stuff that you can add to your DM toolbox. Don't let this book pass you by like ships in the night. It's totally worth the cost.

Pros:

  • Builds upon some of the most successful elements of previously published Fifth Edition adventures to stand alongside them.
  • Well-written and organized, with fantastic artwork throughout.
  • Chapter Three features an enormous glut of information on locations, dungeons, quests, and NPCs around the entire Sword Coast region.
  • Over a dozen well-designed dungeons, including the massive final dungeon.
  • Over 50 new monsters and over a dozen new magical items.
  • Ship-specific appendix with ship stats, example crews, and maps.
  • Separate player maps, handouts, and headshots of NPCs.

Cons:

  • Dyson Logos maps.

THE VERDICT: WITH OVER 250 PAGES OF WELL-WRITTEN SWASHBUCKLING, DUNGEON-DELVING, TOWN-SAVING ADVENTURE THROUGHOUT THE SEA OF SWORDS AND THE SWORD COAST, “CALL FROM THE DEEP” EASILY STANDS SHOULDER-TO-SHOULDER WITH THE OFFICIALLY PUBLISHED FIFTH EDITION ADVENTURES.

If you as a DM turn away from this adventure - you are missing out SOOOOO much. As most folks know, I tend to not run prewritten adventures or campaigns, thinking they often hinder story and open narration - however, there are often those that stop me in my tracks and forcefeed me my words with a forklift. Call from the Deep is one of those such campaigns, cause sweet ilithids it has it all.

Pirates? Check. Eldtrich horror? Check. Swashbuckling adventure? Check. The wrath of the elements? Check. Need I go on? What JVC Parry has created with Call from the Deep is an evocative, terrifying, and kickass campaign that will suck anyone in with its glorious gleaming tentacles. From the start of the campaign with a high-stakes sahuagin attack at sea, to the beginnings of intrigue-ridden roleplay that gradually grows as you adventure through the Pirate Islands - also a shoutout for the awesome Davy Jones and Spelljammer Easter eggs in there - to the tumultous final confrontation, you NEED to play this one.

Overall, Call from the Deep emulates so much of what I love about D&D: genre-smashing, high stakes adventure, flowing plots with plenty of room for improvisation, and a ton of passion behind the ship's wheel.

I barely know where to start, there's just so much GREAT content here. For starters the look and "feel" of this book is just outstanding. The art, descriptions and layout made me feel really immersed in the location and the story.

I don't want to spoil any of the great content but there are some really well fleshed out NPCs, some great encounter locatons and an evil from beyond the stars.

If you like; D&D, pirates, Mind Flayers, Lovecraftian horror and maybe even a little Spelljammer this is the adventure for you.

Ordinarily I would suggest that you only start a campaign of this magnitude with a consistent and a consistently reliable group. However, given the deadly challenges in this campaign, I think you’ll be okay with a group that meets regularly even if each player is unable to be at each session. There are ample opportunities to explain someone’s absence during the campaign or introducing new characters (people will die in this campaign). Depending on frequency and length of sessions, this adventure could go on for several months. You’ll get your money’s worth with Call from the Deep!

[Video Campaign Summary: https://youtu.be/SIkXnSSJ9Ig ] Call from the Deep is an original, fully-fledged campaign that your gaming group will be talking about for years to come. Levels 1-10, a Kraken, an Elder Brain, and pirate raids on not one, not two, but three iconic D&D cities? -- yes, those ones -- Your party better get creative to save all three, or have debts in the cities they let crumble. Unfortunately for the Sword Coast, pirates are only the beginning. Remember that Elder Brain? Because Zellix'Phor remembers everything, and that memory has filled this mega-mind with the perfect mixture of pride and hate to make them the arch-villian you have always wanted to face. So enjoy sailing the seas while it lasts!
