Arrrrgggh....ya ready to sail the high seas in search of plunder!?

The minimalist TinyD6 ruleset gets salty as it hits the Age of Sail and Golden Age of Piracy in search of treasure. 

Written by the ENnie award winning author Ben Woerner, alongside TinyD6 designer Alan Bahr, Tiny Pirates introduces a new way to enjoy minimalist roleplaying. Feature expanded ship rules, an aquatic bestiary, and new archetypes, Tiny Pirates adds nicely to the TinyD6 line, both standing alone as it's own game, and combining with other TinyD6 products to add a dash of swashbuckling piracy to all genres!

The optional duel rules in Tiny Pirates do require a "Duel Deck", which comes in PDF with this book, but can be bought in print here

Tiny Pirates is a stand alone game.

Are there errata available anywhere? Apart from the issues already noted here, there's also a couple more minor issues.

Hey Alan....I bought the book....but the character sheet in the back does not make a good copy. Is there any way to get a PDF of just the character sheet?

I noticed that it says on page 46:
"NOTE: Some of these traits like Spell-Touched require the use of Optional Rules listed after the Game Master Chapter. Get your Game Master’s permission before taking these Traits."
and on page 51 in the description of Spelltouched it says "(See Magic; pg. xx)"

But they are not in the Game Master's Section

Is this file going to get updated?

I'd love to get it in print but if it's not being updated then I'll hold off

Thanks I'll keep an eye on this then.

What other TinyD6 book would you recommend I pick up for a voodoo/spirits/bargaining magic system?

I notice that neither Master at Arms nor Master Carpenter have details in the section on crew roles despite being listed as roles that can be taken by players. Is this an oversight, or is there something I missed?

Hello, do the ship combat range can be usable for Tiny Frontiers ?
or do you have any plan to make conversion in Tiny Zine ?
thank you for your answer.

Hey Jeff!

They are usable for Tiny Frontiers with some adjustment. And that's a great idea for an article!

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.
