Sailpower 2 cover-Deluxe.indd

Recreate the High Adventure and Glory of The Age of Sail!

Are you the master of all commanders? Are you the scurviest of sea dogs? Have you ever secretly felt you’d have made a great pirate or could have defeated the great sea captains in a ship to ship duel? Sailpower is a miniatures game that allows the players to take on the role of a captain in the Age of Sail. Command small ships, large ships or even a whole squadron. It’s your call! Battle other ships, or embark on a mission seeking plunder and riches while giving your enemies the slip. Sailpower is a complete system designed to support fast paced sea action, exploration and adventure. You can play Sailpower on a small table with a couple of ships, a big table with many ships, or even a floor battle with your “sea” covering the whole room!

Expanding the Great Adventure!

After 2 years of revisions and development, this second edition Sailpower rule book contains:

  •  A fully revamped layout including revised and improved rules.
  • New gun types including light cannons, medium long guns and more types of shore batteries.
  • Expanded rules for small boats, forts and shore batteries including more effective hot shot!
  • Over 150 ship templates, including many historical ships from the Napoleonic, Revolutionary War, Golden Age of Pirates, War of 1812 eras (including ships from the Battle of Lake Erie).
  • Several versions of certain historical ships are provided to represent different points in the life of the vessel, such as when they first launched, when they were refitted, when they were up-gunned or captured.
  • All new expansive faction rules for many sea powers including the East India companies, the Dutch Navy, the Barbary Coast Pirates, and much more!
  • New rake rules, often player requested, add to the crossing the T maneuvering advantage.
  • New expansive port and tavern rule system, allowing players to recruit, buy and sell cargo, sneak into an enemy port, and even get into a bar fight!
  • A full exploration and treasure system allowing players to use shore parties to search various locales on the play-surface and find and or fight for all sorts of hidden goodies such as ship upgrades, exotic cargoes, additional crew, repair materials, stranded travelers, and epic treasures!

On to 2012 . . .

2011 was crazy!

I had major surgery, I added a dozen new designs to TechCommander, The Ren fair did well, The Pewter business added an e-store and we all hopefully had a fun and blessed time, which is in fact the whole point.

Let life throw us a bad economy, crazy politics, and all it’s problems.   I thank you all for the great games, friendship and the ability to share creativity!

For 2012 we are looking to make it even more exciting.  Here is a rundown of what we have in mind. Keep in mind these are the “dreams and aspirations” and reality has a way of setting it’s own agenda!

Valkyrie Pewter:

We are looking to work with Scott St. Martin’s Nebuleux Studios to put together an adventure gamer themed set of photography featuring our legendary pewter.  It’s all in the planning stages but we hope to showcase just how awesome our pewter can be for adventure gamers and COSplay fans!

We also home to release a small line of our popular claws set with dice instead of crystal.  Additionally we are looking at some steam-punk inspired gear jewelry.

We are looking to expand our Facebook e-store to include a lot more products so those of you who can’t make our shows can enjoy it!

We are also looking to find folks to help out at fairs and expand our presence at other shows.  We’d particularly like to find someone to help us expand our Ohio presence via the Great lakes Medevial Fair.

Sailpower:

In 2011 we released the Sailpower 2.0 beta rules, which accurized sailing speeds and added standardized weapons ranges to speed up gameplay plus a few new gun types and a more formalized set of treasure hunting rules.

We are not done yet! we are working hard to get a expanded 2.0 full set of rules out hopefully by Origins 2012.  We are adding rules for inter-port trading, tavern visits, rakes, friendly fire modifiers, tavern brawls, press gangs, volunteer recruitment, faction rules for a dozen or so new factions and much more.

The plan is for the ruleset to be very backwards friendly in that the main changes are rules additions, with minimal changes to the way the rules worked other then the new weapons and ship stats which we will post on line.   The quick rules combined with your 1.X rulebook will still keep you in the action, but we do hope to make the 2.0 rules cool enough that users may want to spring for the upgrade!

We also plan on releasing a line of new lower cost smaller type ships to make the game more accessible to the casual gamer who wants a small fleet of affordable ships.  We also plan on finishing up some of our higher end kits for our shipbuilder friends out there.

We also plan a quick update to our free cogs rules soon.

At Origins we plan on running the invitational as a “Tournament of Plunder” so we can find out who’s on ToP 😀

Some projects:

a new starter with a pair of slightly larger sloops

Bermuda 6 gun pirate sloop

Danish gunboats

Felluca

several new galleons and a carrack

HMS Ontario  (A 22 gun brig of war)

HMS CRUIZER/SNAKE (18 gun brig/sloop of war class superkit)

Brig Niagara

east indiaman

28 gun frigate

38 gun frigate

4 gun 28MM sloop

Small scale cogs

Techcommander

We had been working on some new aerospace rules, but in light of of all the new units we have and a few scultps we’s like to retool we are going to focus on finishing up sculpts and making sure all the existing unit cards are as awesome as can be.

We plan on having some great new kits out by origins as well as a updated set of unit cards for download (to address any errata issues)

We also plan on running the invitaional at a different time slot so those of you who earned invites to both games can play in both!

I also hope to finish the first TechCommander novel (or novella?) which will be released with the JAZZ MSV

KITS

Paladin

Hunter (with turrets for all variants)

Jazz

Elephant

Infantry release 1

OTHER stuff!

We also plan on continuing to help promote Paul’s Hounds of War, and have a few top secret projects in the works!

Have a Merry Christmas, a Blessed Holliday, and hope to continue the fun in 2012!
