  • A collection of rules and advice for gamemasters to run undersea adventures in Vodari or their own campaign world. GMs can fill the seas with new hazards, traps, diseases, and random tables.

About Vodari's Undersea World

In Vodari’s undersea world, you’ll find the iconic elements of a fantasy setting, but the familiar becomes surprising and even alien. Delve undersea dungeons in the form of labyrinth-like caves, shipwrecks, and lost temples. Descend from sunlit seas to midnight depths, finding the coral-spired homes of the vodas, the kelp forest villages of the elves, the sprawling seabed cities of Avalsi, the deepsea trench mines of the dwarves, and merfolk fortresses glowing with bioluminescence. Meet a diverse collection of undersea people: mysterious ancients, tentacled cecaelias and grindylows, crab-like karokans, merfolk, selkies, sirens, shark-like tiburons, shape-changing vodas, and more. Experience interesting encounters that require rethinking combat for an entirely new environment. Battle gargantuan monsters such as colossal squids, deep dreamers, leviathans, sea serpents, and sunken ship mimics. Survive challenging environments and hazards that include crushing pressure, frigid temperatures, strangling seaweed, toxic coral, and underwater sandstorms.

What People are Saying about Under the Seas of Vodari

"This book is almost like a checklist of what I want from 5e SRD setting sourcebook. The locations are all of examples of how the designers expect those locations to be used, and the mechanics feel up-to-date with current design trends. There are subclasses that advance the story of the setting, but there are also rules elements I want to use outside of the setting. There are some great iconic creatures that give the setting a unique feel, unique setting elements that make this feel like a very specific setting, rather than just “an undersea setting you can use,” and a strong example adventure that not only shows what the setting looks like in action, but clues the PCs into one of the first mysteries they might unravel in the setting."

There is some overlap with reprints of a couple subclasses and a few monsters that work well for both but. Other than that, both books have their own content.
I'd recommend getting the Seas of Vodari first. Under the Seas is an expansion of the original campaign setting but it does stand on its own.

Just curious, if I purchase the hardcover book from your website, does it come with the pdf version, or would I need to purchase the pdf separately?

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.
