Ahoy!  Take your roleplaying adventures to the high seas with the most comprehensive ship map pack ever created. From the cargo hold, quarters and deck levels, all the way up to the tip of the mast; Everything is included in incredible, glorious detail. A swashbuckling DM's dream come true. Perfect for any fantasy roleplaying game!

Not Just A Ship map. This is the full booty! 

My name is Chris from Loresmyth, and it is my mission to create the most comprehensive ship map pack ever created, true to scale and historically accurate. With a salty dose of fantasy and tentacles of course. I make wooden model-ships as a hobby, and therefore my interest and knowledge on the subject is quite big.

With 15 years Photoshop experience, and a background in historic wooden ship model building, I am going to create this massive endeavour from scratch, and time-lapse record everything from the start to finish. In addition to every 'layer' of the ship being a separate map, I will also create and include all individual art assets. From cannons, hatches, stairs, barrels, rowing boats, rigging, sails, masts...  nothing will be left out.

True to Scale, Historically Accurate Galleon

The center piece of this naval map set will be a true to scale, historically accurate rendering of a 3-deck galleon. 

Everything from the mast, sails and rigging to the individual decks will be made into a separate map, up to the very last detail. You will able to see the nails in the deck planks. For reference, I will be using the famous Batavia and Soleil Royale, famous battleships with a rich history.

There are roleplaying maps out there of ships, but most are very simple or just the top deck. With these maps you will be able to go into the cannon deck, the cargo hold, up into the masts! 

  • 170ft long, ultra-detailed Galleon ship map
  • All decks as separate battle maps (depending on Pledge level) 
  • Richly detailed, historically accurate, colourful 

Digital Maps & Art Assets

The Krakens & Cannons map set are digital maps. All work is done in high-resolution, high fidelity and neatly organised. You will be able to use these in your Roll20 or other VTT with ease. Any Pledge level above Deck Hand includes token artwork as individual images so you can decorate your own ship.

Risks and challenges

There are no big risks involved in this project, other than the scope of the artwork being created. Additional unlocked stretch goals may delay the final delivery. I have successfully Kickstarted 5 projects so far, so I am experienced with running campaigns and delivery.
