The Queen of Swords

Fast and dangerous, the Pirate Sloop The Queen of Swords is a ten-gun single-masted sloop, sailed by a well-trained but violent crew. Woe betide any who fall foul of her!

The namesake of the ship is the collection of swords jutting out of the bow, taken as trophies. The lower deck includes the Captain's quarters, and a large space for crew, cargo and booty.

I too would love to purchase most of your ships you already have created, just without cannons if that would be possible. I hope it is, simply love them!!!

Beautiful ship; wonderful for a classic pirate ship game.

I am wondering though, any chance for a fantasy version?
You know, ballista/bolt throwers instead of cannon?
I would buy the fantasy version!

I purchased the Auspice and have used it several times for shipboard battles.
The problem with the Auspice is that she is not armed.
The Queen of Swords is armed, just not appropriately for the fantasy setting I play in.
Could really use an armed ship in my games, just not armed with cannon.

Hey Douglas. Thanks for the comment. We'll definitely be making more ships soon and will make sure to do some non-gunpowder armed ones too :)

Hello Joseph,

Just loving that you and yours are doing more ships.
Saw the The Bloody Sunrise just show up today.
Thank you for considering ships not armed with cannon and such.
Looking forward to those ships.

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.
