Dungeons and Dragons Online previews Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh


If there is one constant in the gaming universe, it’s that developers love their quest title puns… and their alliterations. We don’t blame Dungeons and Dragons Online devs for doing this because saying “Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh” is the fuel that’s getting us through the morning.

Now that you’ve said that phrase out loud five times in a row and are hissing like a snake, you might as well show up for the test of this patch. Update 50: Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh is running its second preview test on the Lamannia server this week — and the devs are even showing up on July 14th to answer questions and be available for face-to-face feedback.

Sinister Secret of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood promises a meaty update indeed, with a new landscape, public area, and a total of 10 new dungeons — as well as the new Horizon Walker enhancement tree. The patch will be on the test server from July 13th through the 15th.

A troll. Those monsters appear in the wilderness area for the Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh. Here is an updated list of the ten quests for the mini-expansion: https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/525421-U50-Preview-2-The-Sinister-Secret-of-Saltmarsh

The preview is delayed due to technical issues. See the DDO forums: https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/525339-U50-Preview-2-7-13-7-15/page3


SSoS is a great module in D&D. One of my usual go-to’s when I’m introducing new players to tabletop RPGs because it’s just so easy for new players to visualize themselves actually doing those things. Very Scooby Doo adventuring.

Part of me really wants to load up DDO just to see what they’ve done with the place (and how they exploded that into a ‘meaty’ pile of content) but IIRC their whole password recovery system is such a PITA to navigate.

If you last played since they were owned by SSG, should be fine.
If it’s an old Turbine account… it’s really easy to create a new account?

Right? Made me seriously consider downloading and installing DDO just to see how they went about it. Dealing with what you mentioned though is a total PITA though. Just reactivating an account is a bear at times that you actually do have the password for.
