Tortle Package in the Io's Blood (very mild spoilers)

Postby Coronoides » Tue Sep 19, 2017 11:08 am

Reading the Tortle package I'm struck by how easily the adventure could be shifted to the Io's Blood.
The island could be a small island in the tropical regions of the archipelago. If using the 5e CoW conversion by Marsupialmancer a team of about 3 wrymling PCs would be about right. Using my race design book's Young dragons I think a young brass dragon with one class level leading three 3rd level kindred would be about right.
The environment is much like the jungle islands of the boxed set. A purist might make one or more of the following tiny changes.

Replace the human and aasimar in the backstory with elves or Yuan-ti.
The Umberlee cult might have been a yuan-ti snake god cult.
Where the architecture has a tenticles motif replace with carvings of snake tails.
Replace Tortle NPC's and settlements with lizardfolk.

What is the Tortle package?

EDIT: Oh, you mean this Tortle Package expansion for Tomb of Annihilation on DMs Guild. :)

Sounds like great adaptations of this material. As you said this would be for purists, but I think it would be a shame to include the Tortle Package and not include Tortles. But then I am a Mystara fan and have loved Tortles since the classic Mystara adventure Tortles of Purple Sage for the Savage Coast.

Yeh I'd leave the Tortles in place myself
