Salt in Wounds Campaign Setting Guide: 5e



Salt in Wounds Campaign Setting Guide: 5th Edition


The Salt in Wounds Campaign Setting Guide has everything you need to run or explore the fabled evil mega-city built around a bound Tarrasque, who is slain and butchered everyday to feed a hungry metropolis. Containing both 5th Edition and Pathfinder rulesets, this book features:

-Descriptions of dozens of monsters and hazards including 10 unique monsters

-Pages of random encounters

-An introductory adventure

-Dozens of locations and NPCs,

and much much more.

Learn about the terrible secrets of the city, gain an understanding of the city’s myriad factions all scheming for advantage, explore the city’s history from the centuries from before the great binding to today and game in the city destined to launch a thousand adventures... because no matter what, everyone around the table is about to have a bloody good time.


Salt in Wounds is the most imaginative role-playing game setting it’s been my privilege to play in a long time. Equal parts grotesque and delightful, what J.M. Perkins has created here is masterfully realized and intriguingly believable. I highly recommend a visit to the city of Salt in Wounds -if you have a strong stomach, a love of fantastic world building, and a taste for the bizarre. In a plethora of game settings, this one stands out.

-Lou Anders, Author of the Thrones and Bones Trilogy

After a quick perusal, I noticed that while they are referenced as being in the Animals and Hazards section: the Black Sun Days do not appear and only Monsters are listed in that section.

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.
