Lowdown in Highport is a Dungeon Magazine module written in 2013 but for 1st edition AD&D, but also has converted the creatures in the module to 4th edition D&D should players wish to play it as a 4e module instead. 12 of the 26 pages detailing the module within the magazine are creature stat blocks for 4e. It is designed for a group of six to eight players of levels 3-5.

Contains a brief description of Highport,it's coasts and cave systems, as well as a cursed family crypt. It has a table for the tides.

The plot revolves around helping clear an escape route for slaves to flee Highport, and is intended to take place between A0: Danger at Darkshelf Quarry and A1: Slave Pits of the Undercity, but is noted it can stand alone. The module requires players to consider how to blend in and offers diplomatic solutions to encounters.
