T2000 v1 Gateway to the Spanish Main

Watermarked PDF

This morning I pulled myself up and staggered up the strange ladder onto the deck. It was broad daylight and I wasn't dreaming. I sat down against the bulkhead in gape-jawed astonishment. The deck was rough planks. Above my head fluttered a hundred acres of canvas.

The ship had three masts and square sails, and no smoke stack. I pulled myself to the gunwale and clung to the rigging. I was standing between two antique naval cannons on four-wheeled wooden carriages.

I lurched across the deck where this tall blonde woman in tight blue jeans was manning the ship's wheel. I had to ask, "What ship is this?" She just grunted and tossed a thumb in the direction of the ship's bell. I read "USS Constitution 1987. "I squinted at her in the bright tropical sun and asked, "Admiral Farragut, I presume?"

Gateway to the Spanish Main is a game module for use with GDW's World War III role-playing game, Twilight: 2000. The adventure is set around a replica of the USS Constitution built in 1987 by Paradox Studios. The players will become crew members aboard the sailing vessel and will eventually be plunged into a plot of treachery, kidnapping, and piracy in the Caribbean Islands, a geographical region once known as the Spanish Main.

  • Gateway to the Spanish Main contains:
  • Rules for traveling by sail-powered vessels at sea and for seagoing combat in Twilight: 2000.
  • Deck plans for the replica of the USS Constitution.
  • Maps of Grenada and Carriacou, and descriptions of these islands, their towns, villages, and ports, with encounter tables.

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.
