“ Call me Yshmaal! I've been sailing the seas of Titan longer than I care to remember. I've sailed the sea of blood, battled the demons of the deep, and survived an island of the undead.

In the adventure introduction mentioned above, there are clear references to Seas of Blood, Demons of the Deep and Island of the Undead. Other adventures explicitely mentioned in the "Starting Play" session are Stormslayer and The Crown of Kings.
Only the first part of the adventure is available. While the second and last part was announced to follow in next issue of Fighting Fantazine, it has so far not been published.
