D&D Resources for Pirates and Sea Adventures

Ahoy! While we’re currently sailing through the Pirates’month here, we thought many of you would be interested in useful resources for D&D playing on this specific theme. 

That’s why we took the time to dig in RPG channels and blogs to gather these informations here for you. We hope they’ll be useful for your future games and campaigns!  

Dungeon Masters, take notes!

Naval Combat Rules

Acquiring a ship, how to run it, what crew is required to run a ship and what actions a ship can take in combat: a very informative video from Christian at RPG MD:


Another video from Mr.Tarrasque for a simple but deep ruleset when it comes to naval combat. Interesting according to a review from Robin C. in the way that it allows everyone to take some kind of crew action that benefits the ship overall while still giving the players options to make individually impactful character actions too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJnuq3NpIyk

Characters Classes for Pirates?

How will you create and play these pirates characters in your campaigns? You’ll need to be creative to find their perfect profile! Here are a few links that could inspire you.

We found one page on the D&D Wiki sites that could particularly fit our Cannoneer, Mad Wren, or even other characters. Is your canonner employed by an army or private contractor, or he/she’s just a random person lugging around a cannon? Why is he/she willing to undertake such a dangerous position? Read more: 

Then DawnForgedCast Channel made a video about creating a Pirate Paladin. It could sound a bit antinominic, but it could actually be a great match with some of our Pirates of the White Sea characters:


That’s it for now! We hope this post will help you to sail through sea adventures using our fantastic Pirates of the White Sea!
