GM's Maps #97:Three Masted Sailing Ship


Map making can be time-consuming and sometimes frustrating for GMs, especially GMs with limited time to begin with. In our new 'GM's Maps' range, we will be providing a range of pre-made maps for you to use in your games.

GM's Map #97 depicts a 3 masted sailing ship, perfect as a merchant vessel, pirate ship or a means to get your player characters onto the high seas.  The upper, main and lower decks are depicted, giving 3 maps in all.  In addition to the PDF containing the maps, some useful information about sailing ships and crew roles, and a collection of 12 adventure hooks, you also get 6 virtual tabletop tiles (2 per deck) de3picting the vessel so that you can use it in your favourite VTT.  The VTT tiles are set at 30x30 units per tile.  For each deck, one tile is fore and one aft.  When importing them to your VTT, set the map size to 30 by 60 and the tiles to 30 by 30 and they will tile together perfectly at a high resolution.

Included in this product is PDF containing a full-colour roadside inn in both numbered and numbered format, a key to the inn and a dozen adventure ideas for you to use and expand upon.

Sample Adventure Hooks

3. Ship’s Doctor by Celeste Belmont

The PCs vessel has been tasked with the transport of an infamous captive who is being moved to stand trial at a higher court. Partway through the voyage, however, crewmen fall terribly sick with some alien disease. The captive says that he can undo the devastating symptoms if they let him out. After he begins his work, people grow healthy again... then show signs of strange side effects and mutations...

10. High Sea’s Heist By B F Irving

The PCs have been hired to steal an item of particular interest from a vessel shipping it to another port. To complicate the issue, the patron wants the item stolen covertly and without too much violence. The PCs can’t simply attack with another ship, they need to get in and out with a minimum of mess. To add further complications, the Patron may want them to substitute the stolen item with another of the patron’s choosing.

Product Information
File Size:
10.09 MB
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.
