Danger comes in with the tide.
Things are not as they seem in the seaside village of Whitcliffe. Hard men work the wrecking trade, luring ships onto Deadman’s Reef to take their cargo and sell the survivors as slaves. But last night’s storm brought an unexpected treasure to the village – and with it an unexpected terror!
Caught between rival wizards seeking the Crystal Gryphon, a vampire desperate to recover its native soil from the ocean floor, and villagers with their own agendas, the PCs must decide who they can trust and which smiling face conceals a hidden dagger. No one is safe when they go down among the wreckers!
This adventure includes the Village of Whitcliffe, the caves of the wreckers, and a timeline to help the judge create a sense of rising tension. Also included are The Hungry Islands and a collection of five maritime monsters to use for your aquatic or dockside adventures.
The Hungry Islands
A perfect mini-encounter for your shipboard adventures, colossal mollusks raise shells large enough to be mistaken for islands rising from the sea, and these islands can get so large that low mountains rise from their backs. Millennia of sea birds have carried guano and seeds to these monstrous shells, so that soil, grasses, and trees now grow here. And, although what appear to be islands are themselves alive, they now also offer shelter for other living things. Their metabolism is so slow that they do not require much food to sustain them…yet food they must have, and the Hungry Islands have the means to obtain it
Strange & Perilous Beings of the Waves
Here are several new creatures statted out for Dungeon Crawl Classics. If you are going to have adventures asea or along the coast, these creatures are must-have!
- Brachytaurs are great crustacean centaur-like creatures with a love of rotting meat. They may be willing to work with you, but you are never their friends!
The Leviathan is a horrific 50-foot long monster that delights in the pain and fear of its victims. If it pleases the gods, only one of these monstrous beings exists, but the gods are fickle, and what is described herein may not even be the most horrible of their kin.
Sand fairies are spontaneously born with the lowest outgoing tide within a 24-hour period, and perish into sea foam with the highest rising tide in the 24 hours after their birth. They have the gift of prophesy, and they sometimes grant wishes to those who please them. Are you willing to give up part of your natural lifespan to get your questions answered?
The Wharf-Side Strangler is an un-dead spirit inhabiting a man-shaped mass of wet kelp and sea-wrack, seeking lonely victims to throttle in the dark.
No oceanic adventure is complete without at least sighting whales, and statistics are given for toothed whales, baleen whales, and orcas. In a pre-modern civilization, where there are no conservation laws, these creatures may be hunted for meat, oil, ambergris, whalebone, and other valuables.
