A Ship's Heart


A nautical horror RPG adventure inspired by Annihilation and Event Horizon.

A Ship's Heart is a system-agnostic 12 page adventure zine, fit for one shots or continuing games. It sees the characters trying to survive aboard a morphing ship, corrupted by an Entity which no one could understand. It gropes into physical and mental realities, dredging up whatever its claws touch. Characters will not just find physical threats, but emotional ones as things they would rather leave behind bubble up on deck. They might make it through, but they won't be the same as when they left port.

Discover what you are willing to leave behind to survive.

Explore the emotional landscapes of crew and characters as The Entity mangles their memories and dreams.

Struggle against the ship as it transforms into something not fit for this world.

If 3D printing is an interest of yours, Dragon Workshop's ships would make an excellent pairing to this adventure.

Pictures provided by The British Library and Dragon Workshop.

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.
