      Jasper is sad. I think I got rid of my old U1 thru U3 modules. Paging Lt. Murr. Paging Lt. Murr to the docks. Your ship is about to leave.
      Those maps do bring back memories.

      I used these adventures in my Zeitgeist campaign. Love them. And those maps bring back memories for me too. I tried to write a fantasy novel when I was 12 - all about life on board a flying ship. Not having any idea of what a ship would look like, I used the map from U1 as the basis for my flying ship which I called (ahem) the 'Sky Ghost'...

      I can't wait for this...

      I hope I can talk somebody else in the group into DMing it.

      I love how they used the Saltmarsh map that was in 3.5's DMG2 for the town but just aged it back several years. So this way both maps are still valid-- the 5E version for the "Sinister Secret" age, and the 3.5 version for many years later as the city has grown.

      There has always been a soft spot in my heart for this series for several reason. 1, because it was produced by the British version of TSR (and I am an anglophile), 2, it was a cool and simple storyline and 3, I loved the original art work. I am so happy that WotC is releasing an updated 5e version of it. Can't wait!

      These are the same maps from the original module and the DMG2 from v3.5.

      Someone posted on this very website these awesome maps. Free. In color.

      http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthr...Saltmarsh-MAPS

      Took me a small bit of effort to resize them for 1" = 5' but they look great when printed!

      I reduced the saturation and increased the brightness so the printed image was lighter as I think it works better when printed.

      These are AWESOME maps.

      $3 for the U1 PDF and $0 for the color maps
      It's a steal!

      I'm very, very disappointed in the boring black and white interior maps.

      I'm very excited. I'm planning on adapting this to Eberron (Q'Barra specifically) in the same vein as Keith Baker's Deepwater concept.

      Oh, hey, that's cool: they have put a lot of thought and care into this.

      I'm glad to see they are following the Waterdeep pattern of a pretty general map, bit clear and clean maps for floorplans.

      They announced this one was setting agnostic, not Forgotten Realms.

      So, do we know if the adventures will be like yawning portal (just a quick conversion to 5e) or a larger revamp (like curse Strahd)?

      From what we've seen, it looks to be something in-between; not nearly the revamp of CoS, but more actual adaptation (rather than conversion) than Yawning Portal.

      I love the hand-drawn maps. The fact that they don't look like they were done on a computer or for a video game is a huge plus.
