Raiders of the Serpent Sea: Player's Guide PDF


From the lead designer of Dragon Age Origins, in partnership with the creators of Odyssey of the Dragonlords, comes Raiders of the Serpent Sea! Take to the seas of Grimnir and battle against the sinister forces of a forgotten past in an epic campaign for the 5th Edition of the world’s greatest roleplaying game!

Raiders of the Serpent Sea is a blend of high fantasy and a darker world of grim seafaring raiders. The world of Grimnir is an unstable and primal realm strongly influenced by Norse mythology and the histories of the Vikings. The raiders of Grimnir fight to survive in this doomed world filled with ancient and fantastic creatures - giants, sea serpents, saber-toothed tigers, and the world-devouring Yoten. Nowhere is safe, danger and glory abound!

You must become heroes and embark upon an epic adventure across wild lands and dangerous seas. Though guided by fate, your decisions matter and will drastically influence Grimnir’s future. Will you finally break the cycle of death and devastation that is Ragnarök? Will you become a legend of the Serpent Sea?

The Raiders of the Serpent Sea Player's Guide PDF includes over 75 pages of fantastically illustrated world history, gods, lore, character options, and everything a new raider needs to begin their epic journey:

  • An introduction to Grimnir, a new campaign setting inspired by Norse myth that can be connected to any other campaign world, but one with a special link to Thylea (the lost continent from Odyssey of the Dragonlords).
  • Introduces the world, its origins, and major historical events. Learn about the cursed gods known as the Stone Court, the wealthy kingdoms that threaten the raiders, and the power of sacrifice.
  • New Races and Class Archetypes. Includes a variety of new playable races and class archetypes inspired by Norse legends and Viking history. Play as the half-giant tallfolk, deep forest wolfriders, wooden constructs, raid leaders, and prophetic bards.
  • Epic Backgrounds.  Includes six epic backgrounds for heroes to select during character creation. These enhanced backgrounds develop interconnected motivations for the heroes, making them central to the story and world.
  • New Rules. Spells, weapons, food, and mead help bring the world and your characters to life!
  • Ships of the Sea. Introduces statistics for a variety of ships likely to be discovered on the Serpent Sea.

The Raiders of the Serpent Sea Campaign Guide PDF is also available now.

Requires the core 5th Edition rulebooks to play.

Grims speed: Your walking speed is 30 feet, and you have a
climbing and swimming speed equal to half your walking speed.

Aren't those just normal climbing and swimming speeds for most races?

I guess it means they don't have to roll athletics to climb, and when they swim they can use any weapons.

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.
