Strange Tydes

Watermarked PDF

Strange Tydes is a fun and simple game to play of fantasy age of sail naval warfare. Use ships based on historical equivalents of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the way only an Orc or Dark Elf can. Pit the wooden walled men o'war against the erractic ironclads of the Dwarven principalities. Encounter sea monsters and face strange magick on the oceans of The Land. Play the only game we know of where you can kill the opposing vessel's ship's parrot!!

All you need to play Strange Tydes is a copy of the rulebook, a selection of models (though cardboard counters can be used), some dice and a flat area on which to play.

The Strange Tydes rule book contains:

Complete tabletop rules for naval battles between the various races of The Land, including Ironclads, Fortifications, Fire Ships and Magick.

Full background details including a map of the treacherous region known to all as The Barbarous Coaste.

Details of all the races of The Land fighting on the seas of the Barbarous Coaste during the Wars of Dwarven Succession.

Naval Lists of the various fleets involved in the Wars of Dwarven Succession with full details of crew and vessel availability.

Three introductory scenarios set on the legendary Barbarous Coaste

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.
