Two maps present deck plans of twenty different ships, small craft and equipment from Viking longships to dugout canoes.  These are detailed right down to the wood graining in the individual deck planks; nail heads and rope ply of the rigging are visible in a truly fine work of art.  The ships are hex-grids in 25mm scale for use with miniatures.  Included in the booklet are extensive technical descriptions, historical information on the cultures which used the various craft and equipment, and other gaming aids.  These are suitable for use with any medieval or fantasy role-playing system currently in print, and ideal for campaign Judges wishing to expand their gaming horizons into maritime traffic and trade, and ram-and-cutlass naval warfare.
