SPARKS: Yellow Jack & Rum

Avast, me hearties! Sail the open sea for plunder, take haven at the Ile De Tortue, and enjoy a life of booty, wenches, swordplay and roguery. No matter, sir, if you're a privateer of some distant monarch, or a blackhearted freebooter who answers to no man. No matter, still, if your adventures are historical or fantastical, or if you stride the deck as a captain or hang like a fool in the gibbet. If you like swashbuckling adventure, you'll find a treasure here, lad. This is Yellow Jack & Rum, an age-of-sail gaming accessory that'll shake your futtocks and shiver your timbers. Illustrated by veteran Sparks artist T. Jordan Peacock and designed by Sparks creator S. John Ross, Yellow Jack & Rum is a complete set of Sparks: paper miniatures in font form!

In Yellow Jack & Rum, there's a different miniature for every letter of the alphabet. These figures are arranged alphabetically by theme for ease of use:

  • The Buccaneers (A to F): Pirates and freebooters, the rogues of the sea. These figures, from the stern and experienced visage of Jack Dunn to the saucy defiance of lovely Raven, are excellent for representing those in power aboard a pirate ship - the ship's master and his most trusted crew.
  • The Sea Dogs (G to K): The strongarm killers and scum. These men make the first lot look respectable by comparison - crewmen and cutthroats ready to skewer your gizzard or tease you onto the plank.
  • The Fairer Sex (L to P): Damsels to be sure, but not necessarily in distress. Irene looks like she could send a buccaneer sprawling o'er the gunwales, should his hand stray where it isn't welcome. Little Millie or blushing Beth, on the other hand, may need a heroic rescue now and again.
  • The Swashbucklers (Q to U): These men (and Scarlet, the swashbuckling lass) are dressed for quick movement and stylish combat from the rigging down to the beach. Fine choices when style and derring-do are the order of the day.
  • Respectable Gents (V to Z): Or at least they look respectable. These men are as comfortable in the city as they are at sea. Whether they're as decent as they seem, or blackhearted schemers, is a matter left to the cruel hands of the Game Master.

Yellow Jack & Rum comes with 21 additional images (cannon, treasure chest, ship's wheel, deck-hatch, etc) that you can use to decorate gaming props, enhance player handouts, or several other creative projects. Many of them can be scaled to excellent effect for map symbols to interact with your Sparks. Rumors also tell of an accursed lost sailor, lurking somewhere in the set, eager to attack those in less wretched a state than he. Arrr. Like this set? There's more:

Product Information

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.
