Steeped in History, Shrouded in Mystery

The ghost ship of an undead pirate has been terrorizing the seas, and there are rumors that his ghostly crew have infested a once popular smugglers haven. The local fisherman now call it “Deathlight Cove”, and none who have dared sail its waters lived to tell the tale.

Much of the lore is based on the true life story of Captain Kidd, a famous privateer-turned-pirate that had to be hanged twice as the first noose snapped!

The Haunting of Deathlight Cove is a 58-page 5e adventure designed for four to six 6th-level characters, but can easily be scaled for parties of different levels. It can be played over 3 to 4 sessions, but includes instructions for running it as a one-shot or for expanding to a longer campaign.

Lots of Details, Effectively Organized

Much of the adventure's layout was inspired by Swordfish Island's The Dark of Hot Springs Island and by Mörk Borg, and you might notice some of that influence. Mini-maps, organized lists of room contents, and descriptions of every entrance and exit from a location make running the adventure a breeze. I've opted for "more information than you need" approach, but most of the detail is optional and ignorable: the meat of the adventure is in the first few chapters and the rest is just dressing.

The Darkest Hideout

Another recent influence has been the indie video game The Darkest Dungeon, specifically Chris Bourassa's comic book style line art. I've created 10 character portraits, 6 item handouts, and several sketches to help you and your players visualize the locations and characters in Deathlight Cove.

Maps on Maps on Maps

This adventure started as a four-level pirate hideout map I created that simply begged to be an adventure setting. The result turned into this massive project. Its four levels combine to make a massive 66" x 94" map – that's almost 9 ft long if you printed it!

There are also 2 ship maps included: the ghost ship Revenant and a derelict sloop with a new version made specifically for this adventure.
