    Spanish Main Showdown

    …is a "Fan-Based" naval skirmish rule-set using slightly modified rules from Pirates of the Spanish Main and Savage Wolds Showdown rules. These rules are designed for multiple players to go head to head with each other, each controlling their own fleet of PotSM CSG ship miniatures. Rules and ship record sheets to come soon.

      Looks great! So - is this a Showdown adaptation of POTSM and if so when can we see the rules? I've got lots of those ships sitting idle ...

        Yes, these rules will use the Pirates of the Spanish Main RPG for the stats, and SW Showdown rules for the mechanics, but with a little tweaking on movement and measurement which is hex base. The reason for the conversion to a hex play field is "Time". Measuring out 50 ships on the table takes way longer than moving ships one to five hexes. I've tried to keep all the elements of play intact when converting to hex based. Range Penalties, Turning, Maneuver Penalties, Fire Arcs, Broadsides, Ship Fires, Crew, Cannons, and Ammo Type are all either included or converted to hex. Here's a pic of each ship's vehicle sheet or "Deck Plate" to give you an idea.

          After discussions, Spanish Main Showdown will be a "Fan-Based" project and not an "Official" release or tie to Pinnacle Entertainment Group, WizKids, or active Licensee of Pirates of the Spanish Main in any way. Stay tuned...rules and such to follow soon.
