20 Battle Maps for your Nautical or Pirate Games

Last week, I shared some maps for wild west games. This week, I have had The Seas of Vodari in my thoughts and I know many folks will be starting games in that wonderful setting very soon, as the books are in the process of shipping now. With that in mind, I thought that I would return to the sea and share some more wonderful battle maps that I hope you not only like, but also find as useful as I do.

Full disclosure, this is NOT my work. This magnificent cartography is all the work of Ross McConnell and the links all go to his site, https://2minutetabletop.com. If you like what you see there, consider tossing a coin or two his way. All of the maps linked below are PWYW / $1. Enough jaw-flapping, here's the list of 20 Battle Maps for your Nautical or Pirate Games.

  1. A Shipyard

  2. An Island Map

  3. A Colossal Turtle

  4. A Jungle Wetlands with Boat

  5. Treasure!

  6. Sea Monsters!

  7. A Coastal Shipwreck

  8. Flotsam and Jetsam

  9. Ocean Water

  10. A Longship

  11. A Dragon Boat

  12. A Rowboat

  13. A Sailing Ship

  14. A Lighthouse

  15. A Seaside Cliff

  16. A Beach

  17. A Beached Shipwreck

  18. A Rocky Coastline

  19. A Galleon

  20. A Coastal Town

While these maps and resources might not be perfect for every game, I feel they are a useful addition to a GM's toolbox because they are useable for both VTT and IRL games. I hope that you enjoy them as much as I do. As always, thanks for your time and happy gaming
