Pirates of Salt Bay was a weekly web series where a group of actors, gamers and improvisers played the tabletop role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons 5e.

Pirates of Salt Bay premiered on September 24, 2019 with "Series Premiere" (1x01), and ran for four seasons before concluding on September 29, 2020 with "S4E5" (4x05). The show aired live on the Saving Throw Twitch channel, and past episodes are archived on the YouTube channel.

Plot

The series follows a group of four pirates who, in the course of fighting, drinking, making money and seeking love, encounter an ancient and powerful evil.

Attracted by promises of power and success, the crew gets sucked into a situation far beyond what most pirates could handle - but these are no ordinary pirates!

Ghosts of Saltmarsh

Ghosts of Saltmarsh was a three-episode mini-series which is considered the precursor for what would eventually be Pirates of Salt Bay. The cast and main characters from Ghosts of Saltmarsh carried over into Salt Bay, as well as the main baddie, Hadal.

Tales from Salt Bay

After the series finale of Pirates of Salt Bay, it was announced that a new interlude series would take its place to give GM Aabria Iyengar a break from GM duties while she works on a new campaign with the cast. Officially called Tales from Salt Bay, this interlude series will see each player from Salt Bay run their own two-parter interlude with the system and/or setting of their choosing. Aabria will be a player in each interlude.
