The Strangling Sea

Enter the graveyard of doomed ships

Experienced seafarers know better than to risk the dangers of the Stranglesea: that terrible place where castaways cling to existence in the rotting hulks of trapped ships, and deadly creatures feast on the unwary.

Now a band of adventurers must enter the Stranglesea and attempt to rescue the enigmatic engineer Inigo Sharpe from his imprisonment. But Sharpe is both more and less than they were prepared for — and the forces of an enemy icon want him for their own sinister purposes.

The Strangling Sea is a seafaring 13th Age Roleplaying Game adventure by Robin D. Laws for a party of 4-6 1st-level adventurers.

    Awesome. I’ll be a guest on the Dungeon Masters’ Block podcast discussing running aquatic adventures and campaigns. We’re recording tomorrow, so I’ll make sure to give this a plug.

    Running the game from the PDF now. Great adventure! Is there a map showing relative key locations in the Strangling Sea?

    • Cat Tobin says:

      Yes, we’re working on it at the moment, and we’ll upload the revised PDF with the map to your order page in June. We’ll let you know when it’s up.

    I’m thinking of starting a 13th Age campaign with a published adventure. Would this and Shadows of Eldolan overlap each, in respect to character levels? (I mean should I get one or the other, or would both be useful?)

    • Cat Tobin says:

      Hey Jim, they’re both for first level characters so they do overlap. Shadows of Eldolan was specifically written as an introductory adventure, so I would recommend that as a great starting point for a campaign set in the Dragon Empire. The Strangling Sea works very well as an interesting side-quest off a main campaign.

    Why can’t I get the order form to accept my order? Customer Service says they are out of the office until June 11!? Really? It keeps clearing out the state in my address and then telling me to add it again… really wanted this for a game next week!

    Hey Pelgrane,
    When is the Print version going to be available? I already pre-ordered it.
