I've downloaded the single ship and small squadron scenarios for as soon as I finish reading the rules.

I was wondering if there's a source of additional scenarios, even if they're designed for other systems.

Obviously with these rules I'm not looking for Trafalgar, but other instances of small actions...

A casual search turned up "Fighting Sail Scenario Book 2 - Frigate Actions" which sounds promising.

For anyone who's interested in historical scenarios, you'll find this provides a huge number of engagements here: https://en.wikipedia...Napoleonic_Wars

 

No guarantee they'll be balanced, but even just looking through a dozen of them, many seem to either be close or have "victory conditions" other than just sink the enemy vessels...

James' Naval History of Great Britain is an outstanding source for details necessary to create your own scenarios. It's quite old but is available  for free online here: https://archive.org/...storyofg01jameĀ 

 

Here is a reprint: https://www.amazon.c...ooks,103&sr=1-3

I found these easilly convertable   Clash of Arms Games Scenario book Rebel Seas  and I also have vol II which is good   Its 20 scenarios cover naval actions in American waters during the American War of Independence. They range from one-on-one frigate actions to grand fleet engagements with over 20 ships of the line on each side. Each scenario contains the same level of research and commentary found in Close Action.

Rebel Seas is the first of three books spanning the years 1774-1792. The other volumes will treat the struggle for India (Monsoon Seas: Suffren's Campaign for India) and England's blockades of its Continental foes (European Seas: The Lifeline of Empires).

Thanks for the references, Razor.

 

I find Clash of Arms books to be outstanding in all their games!

Has anyone encountered this publication? Fighting Sail Scenario Book 2 - Frigate Actions

 

I'd like to check out a copy, but it seems nigh-impossible to find!
