Sea of Blood is a 64-page sourcebook for [missing data] released in December 1997.

Official synopsis[]

Every land to drown in the avenging sea of blood —from the Prophecy of the Deep Mother

The deep sea holds many perils, some known, some secret, some merely hungry — and some outright evil. Those who live on dry land speak in whispers of the dreadful City of Abiding Hunger, where sea devils cavort in the court of their king, awful rites pay homage to a brutal shark god, and desperate refugees from above the waves dream of the sun they will never see again.

In Sea of Blood, adventurers attempt to overcome the mortal threats contained in the City of Abiding Hunger and the Throne of Teeth before finally coming face to face with their true enemy, the Deep Mother. It can be played as a stand-alone adventure, or it can serve as the finale of the sahuagin adventure trilogy that started with Evil Tide and continued in Night of the Shark.
