D&D – Ghosts of Saltmarsh Campaign

Sorry I've been quiet but between summer time, starting a new campaign and getting ready to run a convention things have been hectic.

June 4 2019 – The Dark Market District

Dark Market Overview Security Rating: Magic B, Mundane B+ Cost of Living 5 The Market has always been an exciting, if occasionally dangerous, area of the city. Colourful stalls, more permanent businesses, taverns and more crowded into a fairly small district. A vibrant place during the day and an even more exuberant place at night…

May 23 – The Districts
