The newest Dungeons & Dragons adventure book, Ghosts of Saltmarsh has landed in game and book stores, and is ready to take your adventuring party to the high seas!

If the title seems familiar, it should, as this is an update of the classic D&D adventure to make it compatible with 5th edition. The book includes a lot of familiar spaces, as well as stats on boats – because you know you want to fight some boats!

The book details the port town of Saltmarsh and the surrounding lands players can explore using their own ship and the vehicle mechanics included in the 256-page book. Fans can play through the whole story in a seafaring campaign leading characters from level 1 through level 12, while Dungeon Masters can easily pull out sections to place in ongoing campaigns in any setting. The appendices cover mechanics for ship-to-ship combat, new magic items, monsters and more.

A copy of Ghosts of Saltmarsh landed on my lap a few weeks ago, and it is a beautiful book, with a lot of good information for GMs and those who just want to explore the fantasy world of Dungeons & Dragons.
