Arrr, matey!  For this talk like a pirate day our friend Old Pete has returned with another book of tales covering the weapons of the sea:

The life of a mariner is a dangerous one.  Sailors regularly face harsh weather and a tumultuous sea, not to mention the looming threat of sea monsters, pirates and marauding aquan societies.  So it is no wonder that a sailor’s best friend is often his trusty blade.

We here at Healing Fireball Publications are proud to present the next in our maritime-themed book series curated by our favorite sea-legged scholar Old Pete, “The Voice of the Sea”.  In this installment of Blades of the Buccaneers old Pete covers the various swords that are carried and utilized on board ships.  He also covers a wealth of maritime mechanical creations designed to aid in the sailors' trade.  Finally old Pete does what he does best and tells the stories of several powerful magical weapons and the legendary pirates that use them. 

   Blades of the Buccaneers: Swords, Foils and Cutlasses of the Sea contains stats for 6 of the most common blades used at sea, as well as 6 blades created for sailors using the Craft (Mechanical) skill and 6 powerful new magic swords with a distinctly pirate or nautical feel.  But that is not all: this book also includes three new diseases with a maritime origin and 4 weapon modifications that will aid any sailor.  So sit back, pour yourself a nice mug of rum and let Old Pete entertain you with another selection of the stories of the sea as told by the weapons used on its waters.

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.
