Of Smoke and Splinters: Expanded maritime combat rules for Ghosts of Saltmarsh


Of Smoke and Splinters - Expanded maritime combat rules for Ghosts of Saltmarsh

 Inspired by the depths of naval history, this expansion for the rules presented in Ghosts of Saltmarsh's Appendix Of Ships and the Sea includes:

  • A guide to arming a ship and its crew, with new black-powder weapon options like the devastating nock gun.
  • A ship damage table to randomise where an attack can hit a ship, each with unique effects, including rules for sinking ships, toppling masts, and detonation of powder stores.
  • Rules for fleet combat, simplifying the huge scale of naval battles to allow players to engage in large-scale battles at sea without having to track the attack rolls of every weapon of every ship.
  • A collection of weapons for ships, including expanded rules for cannons, as well as new weapons like the highly accurate scorpion light ballista, the incendiary fire arrow rack, and the deadly close-range carronade.

Good stuff but I was expecting prices for siege weapons such as cannons and their ammunition.

Thanks for the feedback! I really like that idea and I'll work on it for my next update to this title!

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
