Naval Thunder: Rise of the Battleship


Pre-Dread Expansion of WWI Rules

This 48-page expansion to the top selling Naval Thunder: Clash of Dreadnoughts core rules covers pre-dreadnought era combat during the Russo-Japanese War (1904 - 1905).

The addition of pre-dreadnought era combat to the Naval Thunder line adds a whole new tactical angle to the existing Clash of Dreadnoughts rules. With neither the speed nor the weapons range of their World War I era cousins, pre-engagement maneuver becomes critical, and once the battle is joined it's a brutal affair conducted at "knife fighting" distance.

Included in Naval Thunder: Rise of the Battleship are the rules changes necessary to the core Clash of Dreadnoughts rules to recreate exciting pre-dreadnought battles on your tabletop. It also includes fleet lists and data cards for the Russian and Japanese Imperial navies, two historical scenarios, The Battle of the Yellow Sea, and The Battle of Tsushima and an updated quick-reference guide reflecting the rules changes so you can jump right into the action.

All data cards in Rise of the Battleship are completely compatible with Clash of Dreadnoughts and other Naval Thunder releases.  Included with the dowloads is an optional MS Excel tool that allows you to select and print data cards in seconds.  Instructions for using Rise of the Battleship with other Naval Thunder products are included.

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.
