Cinematic Environs - Aquatic Depths

Selected Option:

Davae Breon Jaxon's Cinematic Environs continues his new series of supplements designed to help GMs paint vivid cinematic scenes for their players in a way that gives the environment its own unique character.

These environs can take a mundane encounter or location and turn it into an epic scene that the players will be talking about for year to come.

This fifth in the series deals with Aquatic Environs. It discusses the effects of breathing (or drowning), crushing depths, currents, waves and many other hazards that the characters will have to face if they are to dive deep below the surface.

Now, instead of simply traveling to a lich's tomb, the party may have to seek out the temple on the ocean floor. Instead of rowdy orcs, the party now has to be on the lookout for merfolk who don't appreciate surface dwellers meddling in their business. Instead of tracking down goblin raiders, they end up crewing a ship in pirate infested waters, hoping that the stories of the kraken are a myth.

Also included is a new character background, new equipment, new weapons and new spells related to this particular environ.

Look for Arctic Lands, Desert Wastes, Mountains, and Aerial Reaches, also on DriveThruRPG, as well as more Cinematic Environs coming soon!

do not waste your time, just BUY THIS NOW!

if you are looking to improve the seafaring/water aspects of your 5e game, this PDF is the starting point you are looking for.
I had a printed version of this PDF given to me (for free) by a friend to aid my development of a "ghosts of salt marsh" campaign. (prior to which i had been combing through every detail available to me on the subject (from 2e through current titles on DM's guild) and after reading it i immediately PURCHASED IT! and left this review to tell you... THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!

I made many changes to my game that differ from this and I am using a few, more specific, detailed or better, rules than this PDF offers that I feel are better suited for my version of the campaign... but it took a lot of unnecessary work! what you have available to you with Cinematic Environs Aquatic Deep for it's price is worth every penny and alone will improve your approach to seafaring.

i have much respect...See more

This shows two download links. Both of them have the name "Aquatic_Depths_-_Final.pdf" Are they different? If so, which one is more recent?

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.
