From the campaign:
What is Pirates of the Dread Sea?
Pirates of the Dread Sea is a set of rules for fighting skirmish level battles between pirate and privateer crews in a fantasy world populated by men, elves, dwarves, orcs, goblins, trolls and other fantasy creatures. The game is fast paced, simple, fun and full of piratey goodness. Or badness. Depending on how you feel about pirates. Although a single skirmish of PODS will provide entertainment and fun on its own, the real satisfaction will come from forming a crew who grow in talent and experience, amassing treasures, sailing the 11 seas, vanquishing foes and becoming the subject of shanties of about their adventurous endeavours for years to come.
This Kickstarter campaign allows you to pledge for the game rules, human and skeleton pirate crews, extra components or all of those things!
The campaign's around halfway funded, but with only 8 days left to go.
