The Heart of the Haunted Sea

The adventurers are on a storm-wracked ship, seeking the island of a long-forgotten, abandoned temple to the Sea Demon. An extinct people sacrificed wealth and their own criminals and rulers there to quell the demon’s wrath. Untold treasure is said to just be lying there. Are your heroes bold or ruthless enough to claim it?

Written by Shane Ivey and illustrated by Kurt Komoda, The Sea Demon’s Gold is an adventure for the Fifth Edition of the world’s most popular fantasy role-playing game. Its encounters are built to take five adventurers from 1st to 2nd level—if they are brave enough to face the temple's dangers. Each encounter includes tips for handling significantly stronger or weaker parties. The Sea Demon's Gold is a standalone adventure that can be placed into any campaign.

The Sea Demon's Gold can be played in any fantasy world you choose. It also makes the perfect introduction to the Broken Empire, a world of ancient mysteries, perils, power, and corruption featured in the Swords & Sorceries adventure line by Arc Dream Publishing.

Also for Swords & Sorceries

PDF Bonus!

You have me very curious about the Broken Empires setting and a bit annoyed that I can't find anything on it or when it will be released.

Hi Bryan. I wrote recently about my plans for the setting at Patreon and just cross-posted it to the the S&S website:

I noticed their aren't any pregen characters in the PDF? Will that be added later? I saw facebook posts by Arc Dream on them and am wondering about why they aren't in the PDF? Thank you!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
