Great module for a low-level introduction to a larger campaign. I would give it 5 stars but some of the pages were cropped on the scan. They really need to fix this.

As mentioned above, some pages are cropped in the scan. Also, after WotC recently reversed their block on PDF sales of old products, I read that these scans were re-done and OCRed. That did turn out to be true in the case of The Temple of the Frog, which I bought before the ban, and re-downloaded from RPGNow when it was available again. The maps that had been missing before were suddenly back in the new and improved scan. But The Sinister Secret of Salt Marsh still seems to have been scanned in the old haphazard way with no one having checked if the images scanned right, and it's of course not OCRed.

Still, it's worth not having to slog through the garage to run this module again.

The scan quality is very good EXCEPT for several pages which are cropped on their left margin. All of the odd pages starting with page 21 share this fault, although it doesn't impact the maps or handouts in the appendix.

The start of one of the best known TSR series. The scan is very good compared to many of the TSR scans and the adventure has 2 parts with a good combination of sneak, think and fight to occupy most if not all players.

Both the Danger at Dunwater and the Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh are flat-out classics to many D&D players. While they aren't as pretty or developed as modern DM's might be used to, they're still a fascinating read and a good insight into some of the better known early adventures.

This is a classic 1st Ed. module, with the flavour of a Scooby Doo story. As far as I can tell, there are no problems with this particular scan.


LIKED: It's a pretty good low-level adventure that allows for a fair amount of flexibility in the players' actions, especially the second part.

DISLIKED: By comparison to more modern adventures it feels quite slight in content, and the concept now seems a little cliched, but these are minor problems.

Actually, the problems really occur if you decide to run the whole U1-U3 mini campaign (sorry 'adventure path'). U2 can potentially be an even more slender adventure if the players use diplomacy, or failed utterly if they act like typical adventurers. U3 is perhaps much tougher than the characters will be ready for when they get there as well, although that's part of the design plan to enforce a more tactical scouting style of play over frontal hack 'n' slash.

QUALITY: Acceptable

VALUE: Satisfied
