Heroic Maps - Ships: Remorseless

Watermarked PDF


When the moon is full and the tide is high, sailors travelling the Wraith's Sea keep their eyes down and pray to their gods. For it is on such nights that the Remorseless sails. Damned for a lifetime of crimes, the crew of the Remorseless have been denied rest, and the phantom ship and her ghostly crew sail the quiet waters seeking more victims. They say that to see the Remorseless is to be cursed with a watery death.

A printable rpg battlemap compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl or skirmish game. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset. 

Contents: A Phantom sloop-brig style sailing ship. The ship features a cannon-armed weatherdeck, a ghostly captains quarters and crew areas, and a dark hold. The entire ship is ephemeral and incorporeal.

Uses: Fight ghost pirates aboard their ship, or be taken prisoner on the phantom vessel and try and escape before it returns to the underworld. Break the curse that holds the crew captive on the ship, or speak with the crew of wraiths to uncover clues about the past.

Download includes:
300dpi A4 pdf, with gridded map spread across many pages for easy printing.
300dpi full jpeg versions for VTT or poster printing (gridded and gridless)
Jpeg versions include both white background and sea background versions.
A note on VTT use - we have deliberately kept the quality of the file high, and you may need to resize the jpeg for use in your VTT software. Keeping the file size and resolution high gives you the flexibility to use the map how you want - crop out a particular section or use the entire map, the choice is yours.

For all of your ships.. can we get a PNG file of the top deck, so that we can drop them in to the oceans that match the area we're in, and keep the ships shadow, etc.? I'd be happy with a PSD myself, but I'm sure most people would want a PNG to work with. ;)

I'm afraid that's not something we have time to sort right now. If you wanted to try yourself you can take the 'white background' version, cut it out and add a drop shadow in any Photo-editing software

James - you have a lot of comments on our products - 4 just today. It'll be much easier for us if you just emailed us with all the comments in one place - it's quite a job for us to keep up in addition to working on new maps. Our email is - you can put all your comments/questions together and we can address them in one go. Thanks!

Yes, it looks like it would be relatively easy with a simple hull outline like this one, but if you have any images with spars, or masts and spar shadows jutting out in to the water, it would be a nightmare to try to separate out the shadow from the background. That's where you're originals would be MUCH much faster to use or to use to create a transparent PNG.

The current campaign we're running is using ships, so my next purchase will be the rest of your sailing vessels (I only 3 so far, I think), docks and etc. That's why I brought it up.

Yes at least four questions today, and I have a handful of previous comments over the last week that I don't think got answered at all.

I just went through ALL of my packages I've purchased so far, so the flurry of questions will end for a bit. If I have any questions about the ships, I'll be sure to email you instead. I know you're extremely busy, and I DO appreciate your attention to detail, and answers to my questions. I actually thought...See more

Any chance of a working fantasy version?
No ghostly green.
Bolt throwers instead of cannon.
Would sell me if there was.

I'd second that. Skip the Ballistas (bolt throwers) and throw in a couple of png files. That way people can customize it.

Afraid not. This particular ship is a cannon-armed ghost ship. It's how we designed it, for our own artistic decisions. There will be other ghost ships, as well as non-ghost versions, of different ships in the future.

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.
