A Pirate's Life For Me


“One could mention many lovable traits in Smee. For instance, after killing, it was his spectacles he wiped instead of his weapon.”
—J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

These rules are written to encourage players to know better their comrades in the ship, to make them feel like real people, who can evolve and grow along them, and whose death or disappearances might mean something substantial, that will make the life as a pirate more real.

In these pages you will find a few rules that introduce new concepts and terms:

• A new type of NPC, the Mateys. They are special NPC’s that are part of your Crew and with whom your PC’s have a close relationship. They are almost like family. You will find all the rules you need to create them, upgrade them and use them in your games. This includes Quirks, Arcana and rules for improving them.
• A change to how Crew Squads work. How well does your Crew work together?
• A few Sheets adapted to use with these rules. These include's a Ship Sheet, a Captain's Log and a variant of the Ship Sheet designed to be used along with the Extended Ship Rules published by Rob Donoghue.

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.
