Galleons once made for both reliable cargo and warships, packing anything from cannons and soldiers to tobacco and passengers. Even today they are a popular choice in media, appearing as the Jackdaw in Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag and as the Black Pearl in Pirates of the Caribbean. So, if you’re looking for a pirate ship, look no further!

This “2.5-dimensional” battle map comes with three deck layers and a collection of sails, as well as a few prefab options for ease-of-use. Inside the download package you will find a collection of Roll20-optimized digital images as well as a “Print & Play” PDF with several grid and color options.

  1. I want to print this map but I’m unsure how, is it an A4? Two A4s(an A3)? or more?

    1. It’s best printed on A2, but you can also print it in poster mode on US Letter or A4 sheets and stitch it together along the middle. There’s a printing guide shortcut in the ZIP that will tell you how. 🙂
