“Pirates have grappled the ship! Where is that damn Captain Tavios? He is supposed to be our escort!”—Atlantean Merchant Barge Captain

 Atlantean Merchant Barge contains a two level map of an upper and lower deck of a fantasy merchant barge. The upper level is lightly armed with one harpoon and two catapults. The main feature of the Atlantean Merchant Barge is a very large cargo hold with a dual crane allowing for a quick unloading and loading of cargo. Usually one crane is unloading as goods going out are pushed toward that side of the cargo hold while the other crane loads goods coming in to the ship as space is cleared on the opposite side.

 Atlantean Merchant Barge is intended for use in fantasy or pseudohistorical settings which would include Atlantis. This fantasy merchant barge is perfect for many fantasy settings where technology has not yet advanced to blackpowder cannons. Some of the Atlantean tech on the ship might also be interesting in clockwork or steampunk fantasy settings (for example the harpoon and crane might be based on these kinds of fantasy tech).

 Adventure hook for use with this map:

 Ocean Patrol Part Two: Captain Tavios is attempting to escort an Atlantean Merchant Barge to the mainland and back on one of his patrols. However, pirates appear from the mist, a technique he has mastered but didn’t expect the lesser cultures to be able to perform the maneuver. The pirates hook onto the Atlantean Merchant Barge he is attempting to protect. He can’t fire on the pirate ship, because it might hit the barge. So he decides to hook his warship to the other side of the barge.

 Captain Tavios’ men surge onto the ship to protect the barge from the pirates making it a three way battle with the soldiers fighting the pirates and the merchant sailors trapped in the middle of the combat.

 The player characters could be a part of any of the three groups; pirates, Atlantean soldiers, or even Atlantean bodyguards of the merchant on the barge. Can they turn the tide of battle in the favor of their side and either steal or protect the Atlantean goods on board?

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.
