    Of Ships and the Sea

    Well I am finally ordering the BoP and the Rjuvik Highlands from Amazon.com and as some of
    you may know, getting more at once is cheaper that in little spirts. Well I was looking
    around for an AD&D book that no one in my group had and came across one I had never heard
    of, Of Ships and the Sea. Does anyone else here know about the book? Is it worth
    getting?

    Also, are there any books, BR or otherwise that are really worth getting? I already have
    the BoM, most Complete handbooks, arms & equipment, Cities of the Sun, Blood Enemies, and
    the Player's Option books.

    Of Ships and the Sea

    Of Ships and the Sea is an excellent source book for both maritime and
    underwater adventures. Particularly if you intend any of the latter, it has
    the best and most complete treatment (the recent Sahuagin materials use its
    rules).

    Its naval rules are not Birthright based, but are excellent. It also has
    extensive encounter tables, weather phenomenon etc.

    If you want to run a seaborne or underwater adventure...It has a bunch of
    possibly useful stuff...but if you weren't going to...obviously it'd be a
    waste...It has some new spells...I think they are all in the 4 volumes of
    spells...it has spell effects for some of the standard spells
    underwater...it has weapon modifications for underwater...it has ship
    info...including ship combat...stuff like that...hope this helps...

    Of Ships and the Sea

    Of Ships & the Sea is about half ships and ship combat, and half underwater
    rules. If that is what you want, great. I intend to use the ship rules
    someday (esp. since someone printed cannon rules about two Dragons ago), but
    not in my current campaign (darn few ships in the Giantdowns). I do not
    intend to use the u/w stuff anytime soon, but you never know.
