The Hounds of Low Tide

The muggy tropical coasts of the Caribbean have many dangerous harbours, but the unassuming Frigate and Barrel Tavern is one of the worst. If the scoundrels and thieves don't get you, the proprietors certainly will.

This adventure is a collaboration with Ennie award winner Kiel Chenier. Wasting no time on a victory lap, he's hard at work on a wavecrawl setting and toolkit book called Weird on the Waves.

"Weird" is an unofficial Lamentations of the Flame Princess supplement, and the adventure assumes a pseudo-historical setting of the Carribean islands in 1655 during the rise of buccaneers, just prior to the golden age of piracy.

Of course, this setting is just a suggestion. This adventure can be used in any fantasy setting of any time period, provided there’s a coast and fishing boats to sail along it.

In any case, there are two versions of this adventure a systemless version, and one statted out for  Lamentations!

  1. I've started my Wednesday night D&D table on beginning material for the Ghosts of Saltmarsh book coming out later this month. Among the changes I'm making to the original adventure: I'm placing it in Port Royal, Jamaica, in 1659. That takes care of the IMO weakest parts of the original module (i.e., Saltmarsh is barely even described, and the Town Council, the ostensible quest-giver, is not even named). I'd love to use this, but I was wondering if you'd prepared a sketch of the tavern without the cut-away, as the PCs would see it? It would be great for when I eventually spring it on them!

    As always, huge fan, can't wait for the KS book to arrive! The wait is interminable!
