The Cove is only the beginning. The provided story sets the Players on course to solve the murder of Verrick, a young man of 17, and the sole heir of Captain Lorguard, the pirate king of the cove. The pirates of Lorguard’s crew are a varied lot, each with unique desires, secrets, political ties, and hidden agendas that make the Cove a minefield of conflicting desires. A brewing mutiny rises among the ranks, interspecies relations are tilting toward violence, a Sea Hag trapped among the crew longs to return home beneath the waves, harassing Pteranodons screech over the ancient jungle, and an enormous ape, the last guardian of a long extinct race, blockades the mountain pass. The Cove is crisscrossed with political tripwires and the adventurers will be asked not only where their clues are leading them, but the direction of their own moral compasses on an island that is more complicated than meets the eye.

The Cove is illustrated and designed to empower the DM that picks it up. In my experience Dungeon Masters are a creative lot, so this module provides a launching point for the marvelous and thrilling adventures I know are percolating in your brain! Maybe you want to spend a few sessions with the characters solving the murder of Verrick and leave it at that. Or maybe you’d like a setting filled with fully realized characters that include detailed illustrations and backstories so that you can get about the business of playing. The map of the Cove gives you a specific geography for your game, and the characters supply you with a wealth of NPCs for the players to befriend, trick, beguile, aid, or downright fight! Maybe you need a place to start your campaign off; if that’s the case the Cove offers a rich starting location, with more supplements for the island soon to be published!

    The Cove is a multi session adventure setting for players level 2-5.

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.
