Arrr, mateys! This here be a pirate ship!

In preparation for Skull and Shackles, the Pathfinder campaign our friend Scott is running, we built a pirate ship to meet all our larcenous, seafaring needs. The ship is inspired by The Wormwood, the primary setting of the first module.

We re-created the entire pirate ship, changing things here and there to create something that works in 3 dimensions. To get the exterior of the ship to have all the right curves, we had to think like ship builders and work from the bones on out. Pictured here is our first release, the bilge. We printed this in wood filament to achieve a more realistic look and feel, and it was worth it.

Given the design’s complexity, we’ll be releasing the ship in installments, probably every other week. We can’t wait to hear what you think.

Now, off with you landlubbers! Go forth and print.
