Downloads for Letter of Marque and Reprisal
In this section you'll find all material that has been published for the LoMaR system so far. Bear in mind that most material is still in the beta stage right now. Gamers new to the system would do well to first download the LoMaR rules text.
'Letter of Marque and Reprisal' rules, beta version: This is the rules text at its current state of development. It contains all rules necessary for you to play engagements at sea under normal weather conditions. The full version will be expanded to include rules for more extreme weather, coastal engagements, ship's boats etc. While the rules mechanism has undergone a fair bit of playtesting, any feedback from you is welcome and indeed, needed. Feel free to leave a comment in the guestbook or send an e-mail to the author.
'Pieces of Eight' collection of ship sheets: This set of ship sheets is the one used to play-test the current incarnation of the LoMaR rules. They were compiled with a particular set of models in mind - the 'Pieces of Eight' range by Peter Pig. To my knowledge, this range has the most comprehensive selection of small(ish) XVIIIth century vessels, appropriate for LoMaR games. They're affordable and easy to assemble, as such a good way to start naval wargaming.
3 Demonstration Scenarios: This archive contains all the materials necessary to play three small LoMaR scenarios. They are designed as an introduction to the game. As such, they are fairly simple, yet should give an impression of the kind of game I had in mind when designing the LoMar rules.
