      Tower of Storms is probably in the seafaring book

      This looks suspiciously familiar...

      I had the same thought.

      It's either that or, "You don't find anything. Sorry for the short game. See you in a couple weeks."

      Sounds like you're running the 50 Shades of D&D storyline.

      For the record, I am all for the secret entrance that let's you bypass the front door death gauntlet a la The Forge of Fury (and the OTHER secret entrance that is a death trap, from the same module) but if there is only one entrance to the fun, it seems counterproductive to make finding it as unfun as possible.

      Very Cool. Especially the Tower of Storms. I might have to use that

      I think the point of this sort of secret entrance is to prevent it being discovered by anyone who is not a player character...

      Stop complaining about the secret entrances! Your characters do NOT KNOW WHERE IT IS!
      META-KNOWLEDGE!

      Chris Perkins isn't on the Nautical book, he does the AP in Summer, and both are probably from the same book. However, a seafaring AP after a Nautically themed supplement would make sense.

      The Tower of Storms is apparently an established local in the Plane of Lightning, take that for what it is worth.

      Now...is that a dungeon that is also, in fact, the body of a dragon? A Dungeons & Dragons dragon dungeon???

      Isn't it that he's not being lead on the nautical book? I can't recall if he's been uncredited in any books so far

      Even if you ignore the Plane of Lightning being retconned out, that Tower of Storms can be ruled out, as it isn't in water surrounded by shipwrecks.

      I think it's just a regular burial mound that happens to be shaped like a dragon from the outside.

      There may be more than one "ship book": one a setting/rules book and one an adventure path.

      I think you are right about the books.

      Even if it is just shaped like a dragon, still pretty cool.

      A while back, someone at WotC – Chris Perkins IIRC – shared some fan dungeons he liked, and one looked dramatically like that Dragon Barrow map sketch. I almost want to say it was a contest, but I can't find the link for the life of me.

      I love how he calls them “sketches”. So modest ...

      Also, in a subsequent tweet, he commented that the giant crab is really friendly.

      That's good. I like random things that are giant, but also friendly. I will name him Snips.
