Above Decks Volume One: 18th Century Corvette

DramaScape Above Decks Volume 01

This Product is a full color floorplan 48 x 20 inch, of the top deck on two 18th Century Corvettes.

It comes with Square, Hex and No Ovelays and includes the VTT (Virtual Table Top Images for online play).

The Card version contains twelve, double-sided card tiles. Each over-sized tile is 8”x10” and printed on sturdy 12 point card stock. The UV coating on the tiles keeps them spill resistant, lets you peel transparent tape on and off them without damaging the tile, and allows you to mark the tiles with dry wipe markers then wipe them clean. As you can see in the images below, the card version has the hex grid overlay on one side and one ship on each side side. We recommend getting the Zip File combo as well (or at least download the PDF Preview) so you can see how the tiles all lay out. The full layout map is not included with the printed card pages to reduce their cost to you.

Note: as the one ship is on the back of the other, if you want to use both at the same time in the Printed Card version, you will need to buy two copies.

Game Masters need quality maps for their miniatures. DramaScape™ is committed to bringing Game Masters the maps they need. 

“I’ve been in Davy Jones’ Locker for far too long without company. Kill them all and take their ship for the ghost armada!”

This product includes the top deck only of two ships, an eighteenth century corvette and a ghost ship based on that corvette. This product includes image files for your virtual tabletop (VTT). The area around the ship has been left blank for the PDF file to save on ink for printing at home. For the Print on Demand (POD) file, this surrounding area is replaced with water. Visually, the corvette looks like it was just commissioned and sailing out of the port with clean white sails. This is contrasted with the ghost ship that is sailing with tattered brown sails. The blackened deck is rotting with several holes in the hull and the planks appear to be warped by an endless time at sea. 

This product is intended for use in pirate themed or colonial games. It can also be used in most fantasy settings as well as long as that fantasy setting includes cannons (both ships have six cannons on the top deck). The ghost ship also fits well in Horror themed games. 

This product is perfect for a fight between the Player Characters controlling the corvette and a sailor crew facing off against a zombified or ghost captain controlling his ghost ship and a skeletal crew. 

A twist on this is the corvette suddenly appears alongside the group during a brewing storm. The ghostly ship is a derelict mirror of the Player Character’s own ship. Its crew is composed of zombies that appear as rotting corpses that bear the same faces as the crew. The ghastly captain has the same face as the captain of the group’s vessel. He warns them of a fate worse than death if they do not heed his advice. Turn back from the storm and return from whence you came else you suffer the same fate. If the Player Characters do not turn back, the fierce storm causes their vessel to shake violently from side to side. When the storm ends, the mists part, and they find themselves transported to a ghost ship graveyard. Ghost ships and crews are everywhere. They spring into action when they sense the living approach. The Player Characters need to find a way out or else suffer the same fate as the other denizens…

I know this has been here awhile and I hope the publisher sees this!

But... The first review complains about the drab darkness of the lower deck and that it has rigging, but the description only mentions a top deck.... is he mistaking the ghost ship for the lower deck of the other?

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.
