Return of The Perpetual

Track a ghost crew back to their hideout and end their curse in this seafaring adventure!

Return of The Perpetual is a Fifth Edition adventure designed for four to five characters of 5th to 6th level, and is optimized for four characters with an average party level of 5. The DMDave Worlds’ Dark Sea setting is this adventure’s default setting, however, it can just as easily be placed in any coastal or aquatic themed adventure where one would expect to find pirates.


The Perpetual Rises! Long thought claimed by ol’ Davy Jones’ locker, The Perpetual, a legendary pirate ship of ill repute, returns to wreak havoc on the sailors of Dark Sea. A literal ghost ship manned by a literal skeleton crew, The Perpetual hovers over the water, attacks ships with its ethereal weapons, and vanishes into fog as if it was never there.

The ship’s captain, Carlos the Red, still guides the dead ship through the Dark Sea. Whispered tales say he still hunts for his long, lost love, the Baroness Adelaine Mont de la Mort. As such, The Perpetual’s been targeting ships carrying women who bear a passing resemblance to the long-deceased Baroness—dark hair, dark eyes, dark heart.

Woe unto the sea dogs of Dark Sea should this menace and his crew not return to their watery grave.

Adventure Hook

Ash Hallow needs adventurers! Those with a high-level cleric are especially in demand, as the mission is a deadly one: find the ghost ship, The Perpetual, and put an end to its undead crew. Ash Hallow’s is offering a reward of 500 gp to anyone who can bring proof that The Perpetual sails no more.

Should the characters heed the call, they meet with Ash Hallow’s Naval Captain, Thibaut Rousseau (LN male human veteran). Thibaut explains that The Perpetual was just sighted two days ago a few kclicks north of Ash Hallow. The ghost ship sank a noble vessel en route to Drifthouse and kidnapped a young woman named Matilda. Rousseau has reason to believe that The Perpetual is operating out of old Pentagon Cove. He offers the characters directions, a ship to bring them near the cove, and any mundane supplies they might need.
