Blood Money

Concept: “While languishing in a drunken stupor in a coastal town flophouse … you were abducted by a press gang.”
Content:
A seafaring framework inspired by Tom Waits (and Herman Melville (and whoever wrote The Book of Jonah))
Writing:
Sets the scene and provides a plethora of options for play
Art/design:
Supports the nautical theme subtly but effectively
Usability:
Intended more as a toolbox than a unified dungeon or set of mechanics

Boarding the Ouroboros

Concept: “… word has come to you from an old fisherman with great promise. He says he has seen a hulk adrift far from the shore and wants a crew of brave souls to climb aboard and plunder its riches.”
Content:
A maritime salvage adventure full of mutiny and mystery
Writing:
Lots of atmospheric descriptive text along with well-written letters, stats for black powder and nautical weapons, and a whole slew of monsters
Art/design:
Nicely made maps; monochrome palette conveys the sensation of approaching and exploring the ship by night
Usability:
Rotblack Sludge-inspired layout is extremely efficient

Temple of the Kraken God

Concept: “‘Steer a ship into the unknown, carry our hopes to alien shores, and restore our destiny.’”
Content:
An adventure filled with maritime weirdness and cosmic horror; includes a corruption rule
Writing:
Sharp and esoteric in descriptive text but clear and efficient when addressing mechanics
Art/design:
A variety of layouts and visual styles ranging from brooding to vibrant
Usability:
Isolated island setting makes this a good option for anyone seeking a survival-horror adventure

The Horde from Beyond

Concept: “Those, who have ventured into the Endless Sea and returned, told the tales of anguish, chagrin, and disappointment. But not all were so fortunate. Some ships were thought lost forever. Until now.”
Content:
5 days of random labors and encounters on a ghost ship
Writing:
Generally grim in tone with dashes of verbal (and even mechanical) humor
Art/design:
Colors and images beautifully support the otherworldly background
Usability:
Minimal prep required (other than rolling 4:3)
