Only a few miles from a small seaside village, the mysterious underwater edifice known as the Sunken Pyramid lies hidden beneath the waves. The handful of sages and scholars with any knowledge of this massive stone structure debate whether it is a completely natural rock formation, a natural site that has been intentionally modified or something built long ago by human, or inhuman, hands.
Locals and ship’s crews alike report signs of increased sahuagin activity in the waters around the Sunken Pyramid. Is the recent rash of disappearances and abductions which have plagued the area connected in any way? Can these abductions be stopped before even more people are taken? Can those already abducted be found and rescued? And what of the strange and often conflicting rumours which whisper of something far more terrible lurking far beneath the Sunken Pyramid?
In addition to the adventure itself, the module contains extensive background on sahuagin culture and tribal society as well as complete statistics and motivations for all key members of the sahuagin tribe.

Praise for The Sunken Pyramid
“All in all, we get one awesome, first class underwater module…”
–Endzeitgeist (five stars + seal of approval)
“This is a really good adventure with great supplemental material and overall design, easily placed into an ongoing campaign or acting as a standalone one-shot. The versatility of the encounters, the support for many different styles of play, and the depth of character on the many different NPCs is remarkable.”
–Feros (five stars)
“Very well done”
Jeffrey Ibach (five stars)
“This is a stellar adventure and is a perfect fit if you want to get your players’ feet wet a little bit.”
–Golden-Esque (five stars)
“All in all, this is a brilliant product with a ton of flavor and thematic awesomeness. If you’ve ever wanted to do an aquatic adventure but been intimidated by the rules and unfamiliarity of it, this is the product for you – written with the first-time underwater adventure-running GM in mind. And experts and veterans will certainly not find themselves coming up short with all the resources and sheer descriptive power the story has to provide. Giving this anything less than five stars would be a crime.”
–Orthos (five stars)
“…this is definitely a great buy for those who are looking for a light way to get into life on the high seas…”
