Firearms of the High Seas

Watermarked PDF

The second of the Pirates of the High Seas articles, Firearms of the High Seas details weapons such as the hand-gonne, blunderbus, flintlock pistol, and more - along with associated feats, powers, and a few magical firearms.

The evolution of various societies has led to a constant and thrilling rush to new and exploratory technologies. With the principles of offense and defense, this has been a spinning wheel where quite literally the dog is chasing its own tail. Since the earliest days when Cro-Magnon would battle Neanderthals, there has been a constant arms-race to see who could survive the lasts' attack. Whether a large piece of tree bark designed to block the blow of an impromptu club, or a 1" thick piece of hardened steel meant to stop a 7.62 bullet, the race has changed little when it comes to weaponry. Arms and armor will always be an important part of any fantasy roleplaying game-whether the knight in shining armor, or the swift seafaring buccaneer.

This is a nice supplement to integrate flintlock pistols and muskets into your 4E game. I like the idea of having firearms in my campaign in a way that isn't overpowered and can be integrated without ruining game balance. The reload time is what makes [...]

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.
