Written by Matthew Hartley and Steve Blease, Strange Tydes is a fun and simple game to play of fantasy age of sail naval warfare. Use ships based on historical equivalents of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the way only an Orc or Dark Elf can. Pit the wooden walled men o'war against the erractic ironclads of the Dwarven principalities. Encounter sea monsters and face strange magick on the oceans of The Land. Play the only game we know of where you can kill the opposing vessel's ship's parrot!!
