    I just finished reading "Child of a Mad God" by RA Salvatore, was a nice suprise and enjoy it more than I expected. I had read long ago the Demon Wars Saga so I was intrigued when it was announced and happy when got it as a gift for Xmas.

    Expanding on this idea you could use the SRD instead which includes the other classes not in the basic version.

    I agree Saltmarsh was written in a way that can easily be placed elsewhere if you wanted to. They will probably give you some tips in how to set it in other Campaign Settings as they did in TftYP. I do hope that if Saltmarsh is indeed included that they also include the Saltmarsh maps. It was very loosely set in Greyhawk. I ran Saltmarsh (but not the other two) in my own campaign world. I ran that in 1999 and, with a number of lengthy pauses, that game is still going! The PCs are 11th level (in 2E that's pretty good) and they're now world-hopping through the Astral.

    You are not necessarily wrong. It's all speculation, maybe focusing the two adventure books in water-themed APs is a bit of a stretch? Me personally. don't care much about the rules part, I care more about the themed adventures part. Rules, I can figure a way to do those, though an official ruling might be nice for some groups. Lately, though, WOTC has been very successful by not putting all eggs on the same basket. We will have to wait and see for either more previews or official product information release. In 2017, the two adventure products had the same archvillain: still pretty different books. If this is an underwater Sahuagin-fest in the style of Aquaman, and the AP is a Sword Coast sandbox (as Perkins has laid hints towards in the past, the upcoming comic series, etc.), those can be even more different in terms of material.

    Oh I have never played those, do you mean GA1-2? The Murky Deep and Swamplight? That could be nice, are they related or stand alone? I think there was a GA 3 as well. Edit to add; The only other i can think of is Evil Tide trilogy by Bruce Cordell, but haven't played that one either. The Evil Tide trilogy, which is for levels 5-10 per the DMsGuild description, and designed as a companion to the Monstrous Arcana book on Sahuagin.

    If you are correct and the big AP from summer is also water-themed, that one might include then the seafaring rules that were playtested. the perspective of having two entire hardcover official wotc books focused on boats, oars and seasickness and zero for, let say, Eberron is totally nonsense for me. I can't really believe the market needs hundreds of pages about those topics, especially hundreds of pages batched in two volumes in a row. but given the enthusiastically feedback which airs, for example, here, I m most probably wrong.

    Oh, this is a very interesting piece of information. In an earlier post, I mentioned that the original U3 module included some kind of guidelines for underwater adventures but there were none for seafaring or navigating ships or other water vehicles. If you are correct and the big AP from summer is also water-themed, that one might include then the seafaring rules that were playtested. More specifically, those rules were part of a larger batch of vehicle rules that include land and air vehicles. They decided, for reasons, that selecting ship rules out for early playtesting would make sense. And in the past week or so, Mearls said on Twitter they have started reworking them based on the positive feedback. As to the contents of this book...there was a Tier II series of Sahuagin adventures in 2E. What if this book reprints those, with U2-3, and a Volo's Guide style section on Sahuagin...?

    It was numbered sequentially. I think the pages from the preview havnt been merge yet with the rest of the chapters in the full book hence the numbering or the chapter was extracted and has its own numbering. Thanks!

    At this point imo they can include conversions for U1 to U3, converted notes on Saltmarsh and include the Underwater and Navigation rules. All this would make a decent book with mini-setting, rules and adventures (maybe new monsters). They can also include the kraken and "Fallen Star" ship (the mini from wizkids and Chris perkins) and call it a day. Lets call it Tales from the Fallen Star... lol. Outside the jokes, it seems we are getting something along those lines. My current wave is that there is an intro section on ship stuff, similar to the incongruous section on the Yawning Portal in TftYP (though probably more relevant), mainly adventure content (U1-3, not sure what else would fit: the Sea Devil stuff from 2E??), and a beastiary of monsters in the adventure material and maybe some random aquatic beasts and even random encounter tables. Yawning Portal was a successful book, but it seems they are working to avoid it's main pitfall, being a more or less random grabbag of stuff. ...

I think the pages from the preview havnt been merge yet with the rest of the chapters in the full book hence the numbering or the chapter was extracted and has its own numbering. Yup. If they're doing something like one chapter per file in, say, InDesign and haven't combined the chapters into a "book" yet, the page numbers should be based on the chapter alone.

    So the events in the first image are on the page 22 and 23 in the original, the wording has been updated and it seems they have renamed and updated some stufff. Second page stuff is on page 33 in the original. Some of the wording has been updated. In the first page a room was renamed from Lieutenants Quarters in the original to Wave Shaper's Quarters in the new one. The description of the room and what's in it is also different. Interesting, so this is a more significant adaptation than TftYP.

That, and they probably know folks like us will obsess over details, so they wouldn't want to necessarily let us in on too much
  • 01:32 AM - Parmandur quoted vpuigdoller in post Pages From The Upcoming Nautical D&D Book!
    Maybe is a water themed Tales of the Yawning Portal. Another Tales from the Yawning Portal, at least: since the text is from U3, at least the whole U series seems likely.

    Maybe is a water themed Tales of the Yawning Portal.Hopefully that combined with some overall water/nautical rules and at least a bit of a bestiary.

  • 07:04 PM - Reynard quoted vpuigdoller in post Top Games Played On FG In 2018: D&D, Pathfinder, Savage Worlds
    I think that by D&D and Pathfinder having bigger and constant yearly Adventure Paths makes it easier for the busier ppl to run and play games since the prep time is vastly reduced and without the need to create the story yourself. More DMs (GMs) equals more people playing. YMMV of course, but I have never found running APs in either PF or D&D to be time savers. In fact, for me it takes more time to pour through the adventure, extract the vital information, modify it to fit my particular group of players and their characters, and make it interesting and fun to run. Dragonheist is a perfect example: it is an okay adventure and an absolutely terrible heist, with a huge amount of obfuscated material buried in the prose and scattered around the book. That said, I prefer FG for running things like the Yawning Portal adventures. It has worked great so far for Sunless Citadel and Forge of Fury. But those discrete modules have far less scattered info than, say, Storm King's Thunder.

    Ohh! It sounds very nice! Do they plan to publish adventures for those of us who have less time and can’t craft them our own? What jhilahd said. For my playtest I converted part of the adventure out of the Warhammer FRP 1E core rules. While there are not many adventures, the 15 Zweihänder PDFs are currently on sale for a short while at drivethrurpg for under $40: Zweihänder bundle

    Oh now you really peaked my interest. Can you comment further? I just mean that the descriptions of the adventures in the AL season sound like really fun cartoon episodes. Like if the guys from Avatar and the guy who made Leverage collaborated on a show set in Eberron! I want that now!

  • 10:20 PM - LordEntrails quoted vpuigdoller in post …Wait till you see Waterdeep: Dungeon of the Mad Mage (Spelljammer?)
    This makes it look like this is more of an adventure through Undermountain rather than a complete guidebook on it (which I didn't think could be done in a single book anyway). This makes me a bit less excited about it, honestly. Still excited, but less so. I guess I'll have to collate all the previous material myself to have a complete conversion of the entire Undermountain. Yes, DotMM won't be exhaustive. A single book can't detail it. It's in the neighborhood of 4000-6000 unique locations. Even at 4 rooms per page that's over 1000 pages. This looks very promising and I can't wait to read thru it. @machineelf Maybe they offer a map of the Undermountain level and a short adventure to run in it? Nope. They will offer partial maps of all 23 levels. According to comments on the SoME, they will be leaving much of each level unmapped. Well, Undermountain is 8 or 9 main levels, and multiple sub-levels. It's HUGE. I thought they had made the claim that this book would cover all of the levels. I to...
