The Saltmarsh Adventures
Welcome to The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh, the first D&D module ever created by the UK branch of TSR, released in 1981. From a time when D&D adventures were largely dungeon crawls, this module stands out as being one of the first to rely heavily on plot and player choice. This is why I think it will be an excellent introduction (for some of you) to the world of Dungeons & Dragons.
We will be using the latest (5th) edition of D&D. You can find an introduction on the wiki page for this campaign. I’ll add more to this, as necessary.
Some tips you may find helpful:
- Have fun. D&D is a game, and is meant to be enjoyed.
- This is an “old-school” D&D adventure, which means it can be deadly for the incautious or unlucky.
- Death isn’t the end. Perhaps your friends revive you, or maybe you make a new character and rejoin the story as appropriate.
