HEY! HEY! Just another (final?) bump to say that if you look at the first post in this thread you will find download links to newly compiled, corrected, edited, cleaned up PDFs of all four books of the "Out of the Frying Pan" story hour. I also hope to soon include an additional "supplemental materials" file including maps, stat blocks, and a handful of handouts from the time of the game.

I will include the download links here as well:
Or you can download all four books + supplemental files in a zipped up folder holding all the files by clicking here!

Is there any place where the former wiki resides, or is that lost?

While I have all the wiki files saved in an archive on my home machine, the wiki that hosted it is now defunct and I found that transferring it to another wiki is too onerous.

One thing that the newly cleaned up PDFs do, is get rid of all the links (99% of which were broken) and replace them when possible with a detailed footnote.

Thanks for asking!

I do have a wiki for my current 5E "newbie" Ghosts of Saltmarsh game (though I know that does not help).

I keep futzing with these files, but I think I think the final futz is finished. All the download links on this thread should now be up to date.
