First, to clear up some misconceptions. Post Captain (or PC) is NOT GQ3.3 with sails. While the rules, logs and charts are similar in format (and it does use GQ3.3’s D12s), the mechanics are generally not (the gunnery system is vaguely similar, but not directly so). Obviously, the game mechanics used for WWI and WWII don't translate to AoS! To use the family analogy, if General Quarters 3.3 and Fleet Action Imminent are siblings, then Post Captain is the third cousin, twice removed (PC gets invited over for Thanksgiving and Christmas and not much else!).

Question posted at ODGW.com from Naval gamer.
“I am interested in war gaming the pacific theater from War Plan Orange in the 1920 through WW2. I have the following questions:
1. General Quarters 3.3: Does it contain enough ship data to play the US and Japan through this time period?
2. Does the Sudden Storm supplement contain the ship logs needed for that conflict, or is it just a campaign game with scenarios?
3. To model a USN - IJN conflict in the mid 1920's would I need Fleet Action Imminent?

Announcing new Age of Sail clear acrylic ship bases with etched wakes...
ODGW is pleased to announce new additions to our line of clear acrylic ship bases. These bases are designed with a different wake pattern more inline with a ship underway with wind power rather than mechanical power.

Ahoy Mates... we're back with the third and last installment of the Master Index for Post Captain... Shore Raids.
ODGW will be releasing Post Captain on or about July 16th 2015.
While we wait for the ship to come to port we're checking out the Master Index of Chapters in Post Captain. This index covers the Basic Game, Advance Rules and Shore Raids. The index in its entirety will be one of many free Bonus files available to gamers who have registered their rules on ODGW web site.
The last portion of the Master Index is on Shore Raids. Shore raids are a time honored means of extending sea power ashore. Warship detachments can land suddenly, without warning, to capture supply and weapon caches, destroy signal stations, storm shore batteries and isolated forts, and assist cutting out expeditions. Repeated raids in divergent locations frustrate an opponent and tie up valuable military resources needed elsewhere.
Listed below are the chapters you can expect to see for more adventurous captains..
Thanks for reading. Look out for more Post Captain information coming soon.
