Corsair: The Definitive D20 Guide to Ships

Sail Ho!

Everything you need to add historically-accurate sailing vessels to your D20 campaigns, CORSAIR compiles the OGL seafaring and naval combat rules from the Origins Award-nominated Skull & Bones from Green Ronin, with the advanced supplemental rules from the first two issues of Adamant Entertainment's Buccaneers & Bokor, plus brand-new material never seen before, including new ships, new rules and more!

Included in the 67-page PDF are 20 ship types, complete rules for sailing, ship repair and customization, naval combat, and boarding actions, and full-color deckplans of a Brigantine, gridded for D20 combat. CORSAIR is the perfect solution for any D20 campaign, regardless of setting, looking to add the snap of sail-cloth, the sting of salt spray, and the thunderous roll of cannon-fire to the game.

Everything you need, all in one place. Set sail.

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.
