From the campaign:
Sea Dog Game Studios has launched a KickStarter funding campaign for Sailpower 2.0 - Fun Scale Combat in the Age of Sail.
Sailpower is a large scale miniatures game that allows players to take the role of a captain in the Age of Sail. The game is played with large, 15mm ships.
The new rule book will contain:
- over 150 new template ships, including many historical ships from the Napoleonic Era, Revolutionary War era, Golden Age of Pirates, War of 1812 and Battle of Lake Erie. In many cases, you can play ships from different points in their lifespan: when they first launched, when they were refitted, when they were captured, when they were up-gunned for war, etc.
- A fully fleshed-out port and tavern rule system. Want to buy and sell cargo? Now you can. Need to sneak into an enemy port to sell an illegal cargo? Now you can.
- A full treasure system that allows players to treasure hunt islands for all sorts of buried goodies: improved weapons, exotic cargoes, repair materials, stranded travelers, and hidden treasures.
- Previous versions of the Sailpower rulebook have only been available in black&white, but backers will have the option of purchasing the new Sailpower 2.0 book in full, glorious color.
