Bloody Misadventures: Dramatic Battles on the High Seas


Unleash your inner Patrick O’Brian! Bloody Misadventures gives you the tools to stage cinematic ship-to-ship battles right out of your favorite swashbuckling films. These tools focus on the Heroes and their deeds rather than the tactical minutia of wind velocity and powder charges.

Inside you will find:

  • tools designed for easy integration with any Action Sequence, including ship maneuvers like Crossing the T, Broadsides, and Ramming — their effect in play and how to pull them off!
  • suggestions and idea generators for Consequences and Opportunities in ship-to-ship engagements, including Critical Hits
  • a step-by-step walkthrough of how these tools work in play
  • a complete round-by-round example
  • guidelines for conducting chases on the high seas
  • details on other dangers like maelstroms, coral reefs, tide races and forts
  • an easy to reference aid for Game Masters
  • fully compatible with Rob Donague’s Expanded Ship Rules

Rule System(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.
