The newest issue of Dragon+ is out, and with it details on the next D&D hardcover adventure book: Ghosts of Saltmarsh! Due out May 21, Ghosts of Saltmarsh is a collection of seven nautical and coastal themed adventures that take characters from levels 1-12. These adventures can be run separately or as one larger campaign. The adventures contained in this volume are all previously published adventures which have been lovingly adapted to fifth edition D&D (including some of the most popular first edition and Dungeon Magazine adventures). Adventures in Ghosts of Saltmarsh include:
- The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh (originally written by Dave J. Browne and Don Turnbull in 1981)
- Danger at Dunwater (originally written by Dave J. Browne and Don Turnbull in 1982)
- The Final Enemy (originally written by Dave J. Browne and Don Turnbull in 1983)
- Isle of the Abbey (originally written by Randy Maxwell for Dungeon Magazine #34)
- Tammeraut’s Fate (originally written by Greg A. Vaughan for Dungeon Magazine #106)
- The Styes (originally written by Richard Pett for Dungeon Magazine #121)
- Salvage Operation (originally written by Mike Mearls for Dungeon Magazine #123)
In addition to the adventures themselves there’s details on the port of Saltmarsh, mechanics for ship-to-ship combat, new monsters, and new magic items.
Launching one month later is Beadle & Grimm’s Sinister Silver Edition for Ghosts of Saltmarsh! Currently available for pre-order on their website, the Sinister Silver Edition contains twelve high quality player handouts, a detailed ship map, a reusable ship map, two large scale battle maps, a map of the Styes, 30 encounter cards (which are designed to be hung over a DM screen so players can see images of the monsters they fight while the DM sees it’s statistics), custom DM screen, two objects, bonus encounters, and characters!
