Victory by Any Means: Fire As She Bears! Edition plunges players into the depths of campaigns in the age of fighting sail! Using elements of the VBAM campaign engine we present a familiar and often underrepresented campaign environment where every decision of the admiralty meant the rise and fall of empires.

Working the Origins Award-winning team from Starboard Tack Press, we designed a campaign system for their popular fleet level Age of Sail game, Fire As She Bears! Second Edition.

This stand-alone product contains everything you need to re-fight the great naval campaigns that shaped the face of the world. All of the rules you need to run a game as the admiralty of a great nation are included in this 80-page book. So stare down your opponent from across the sea, and make the important decisions that control the fate of kings! Nations that controlled the seas controlled their own destinies.

VBAM: Fire As She Bears! Edition is a stand-alone product, but ownership of the Fire As She Bears! Second Edition naval tactical combat system by Starboard Tack Press is encouraged for full enjoyment.

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.
