Fantastic Maps: The Ship's Graveyard


Kobold Quarterly Logo

Seek the final resting place of the great ships with the Kobold!

Jonathan Roberts cartographer for Kobold Quarterly, Sunken Empires, and Coliseum Morpheuon, presents another Fantastic Map: "The Ship's Graveyard." Take your adventures to the silty bottom of the cold, briny deep and fight amongst the broken hulks. This map originally illustrated the adventure The Wreck of the Goodwife in Kobold Quarterly #13.

This multi-page PDF allows you to print out the battlemap at a 1 square=1 inch scale and is also available in a printer-friendly light grayscale version. Fully printed, this map is 5 foot to a side - 25 square feet of watery peril. Now a sinking ship is just the start of your players problems.

The pack also contains high-resolution Jpegs of the map with and without grids for you to print out as a poster map, or for use in your virtual tabletop of choice - along with pngs of a runic spiral, the heart of a whirlpool and an anchor compass. The file also contains two maptool campaign files set up for quick use in the 4.0 version of the world's most popular roleplaying game and its 3.5 thriving spiritual successor. The Maptool files require Maptool 1.3b84 or newer to work.

This sprawling map presents, as the name implies, the results of a dramatic shipwreck. The rough “colored sketch” art style doesn’t fit my preferences as well as some other styles, but it’s well executed. Information included with the map indi [...]

Of Sunken Ships and Mermaids Okay, I know there is no actual mermaid in this map pack. But whose to say you can't have one here, or a sea hag, or something even creepier or dangerous? This is the kind of GM's tool I love, something that is a spr [...]

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.
