Ghosts of Saltmarsh is releasing on May 21, 2019!
Saltmarsh will be considered a Season 0 (season-agnostic) release, and is not tied to any particular DDAL storyline season. The hardcover book will carry the DDHC00-GSM adventure code, and will be available for Tiers 1 through 3 (characters level 1 through 16).
The introductory adventure sent to stores for play — Salvage Operation — will be AL-legal under code DDIA00-GSM.
Ghosts of Saltmarsh combines some of the most popular classic adventures from the first edition of Dungeons & Dragons including the classic ‘U’ series and some of the best nautical adventures from Dungeon magazine:
— The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh
— Danger at Dunwater
— The Final Enemy
— Salvage Operation
— Isle of the Abbey
— Tammeraut’s Fate
— The Styes
In addition, Saltmarsh will tie into Dreams of the Red Wizards, the new non-seasonal campaign introduced in Issue 25 of Dragon+. Dreams won’t be attached to a specific storyline season in the Forgotten Realms campaign, and players will have the opportunity to impact the narrative based on the decision their characters make.
DDAL-DRW01, Breaking Umberlee’s Resolve, will be Tier 2.
DDAL-DRW02, Blood in the Water, will be Tier 2.
DDAL-DRW03, Saving Silverbeard, will be Tier 3.
DDEP-DRW01, Assault on Myth Nantar, will be Tiers 2 & 3.
The nautical Dreams trilogy is authored by Ashley Warren, DMs Guild Adept and author of DDAL00-05 Winter’s Splendor, and the Dreams epic is authored by James Introcaso, DMs Guild Adept and Dragon Heist designer & Amy Lynn Dzura, one of the Adventurers League Community Managers.
Guidance from Wizards of the Coast for tying together Ghosts of Saltmarsh and Dreams of the Red Wizards can be found in this DM resource document.
See you on the high seas, adventurers!
