Issue 1 – Rising Tides (Foundry VTT)

FREE

Horror, adventure, and mysteries await on the high seas! A cursed undead crew prowls the oceans for souls in their zombie kraken submarine. An unstoppable entity from another dimension waits patiently for release from its underwater vault. A bard’s ballad starts a race against both time and pirates for his buried treasure. An ancient ruin on a remote jungle island hides a mechanical tomb and a secret that will change the world.

Ahoy, mateys! The inaugural issue of Crucible Magazine has set sail upon the high seas! This 100+ page tome is packed with enough treasures and adventure to make any pirate jealous of your booty. And all of it is perfectly tuned to enhance any campaign set in the 5th edition of the world’s greatest roleplaying game!

Visit places sailors are only willing to whisper about off the Breakwater coast, diving below the waves and exploring remote islands full of danger. New ocean-themed subclasses and player races enhance your sea-loving characters, and six new magic items add flavor to any nautical campaign. You’ll find it all on the docks, in the fighting rings, or the casinos of Port Mercy, the Pirate City of Sin, ripe with intrigue and opportunities for everyone!
