Set sail with one of the most unique models for role playing ever created! The Maiden of the High Seas is set to start the RPG world on fire. Whether your gamers are die-hard swashbucklers or you simply need a ship for a crucial plot point, the Maiden will fill a longtime void in many RPG genres. Best of all, you don't need to blow hundreds of dollars and or weeks on a custom-built ship for your miniatures. Build the Maiden in a matter of days and on a budget that will make you smile.

Gamers and model hobbyists alike will find many unique uses for the Maiden. It's a proud item to display on the gaming table and equally suited for the fireplace mantel. But what makes the Maiden especially unique is her ability to separate decks "on the fly", allowing for multiple, simultaneous levels of game play!

WorldWorksGames PDF terrain sets offer gamers a visually stunning and cost-effective alternative to other, more expensive gaming terrain solutions. “Print, Build & Play!”—it really is as simple as that! Download the terrain, open the PDF, print to cardstock on your home printer; build as many items as you need and PLAY! Our models are easy to build for any skill level, come with richly illustrated instructions and your environment can be as big or as small as your game requires, for just pennies a page! All of that backed by a level of detail and presentation unmatched in the industry. Our commitment is to making your game experience come to life without breaking the bank!

Multi-deck System:
The sterncastle, forecastle and main hull are all independent sections. Each has a roof that is easily removed to access interior elements with ease. Combat and general movement can take place on all decks simultaneously without the need to re-order other sections. The lower decks even accommodate a number of ornately detailed free floating walls, allowing you to create practically any interior hull layout.

Multiple Miniatures Scale:
The Maiden of the High Seas is compatible with nearly all miniature scales. We've included 1-inch and 1.5-inch grids as well as no-grid versions of all the included decks.

Masts and Sails:
With the Maiden's unique mast and yard design users can configure their ships' sails in any number of ways in real time. Simply drop on the sail of your choice to change the look and feel of the ship. Show raised sail states with a number of raised sail designs—a great way to give players a sense of what state the sails are in during a bad stretch of weather.

Internal Props:
As usual, WorldWorks has provided you with a number of highly detailed interior props to "dress" the inside of your ship and give it a rich pirate flair! From the captain's desk strewn with maps to the sweat-stained hammocks, each element and texture has been carefully crafted to give you an authentic nautical feel. Bed trunks, tables, chairs, cargo crates, weathered cannons and, of course, the dreaded plank all add to an environment that will make your players feel like they are really there!

Ink-Jet Transparencies:
Always innovating, WorldWorks has incorporated the use of Ink-Jet transparencies in our designs to create intricate objects that are incredibly easy to build. Elements such as complex riggings, knotted roping (ratlines) and windows have been rendered with incredible detail specifically to be printed on transparencies. Other elements such as battle damage also use transparencies and can be placed anywhere on your ship that you want to show damage (blood, burn marks, broken decking, cannon holes, dents). Think of transparencies as "Alpha channels" for cardstock modeling.

Masterboard:
It wouldn't be a WorldWorks product if we didn't include a Masterboard, and this one is special. To create a convincing ocean worthy of your creation, we've put together a large format area of water with specular lighting, reflectivity and wave effects that ground your model in an aura of believability. A series of twelve water tiles make up an image that will convince some that you've imported your own piece of the ocean right to your gaming table!

Huge Kitbashing potential:
Kitbashing is re-ordering the elements within a model set to come up with new designs. The Maiden is almost made with Kitbashing in mind. Extend the central hull as long as you like, add more masts, change sail designs, make her stubby, make her long. There is monstrous kitbashing potential here, and with the support of a large and dedicated community at WorldWorks you can exchange ideas and pictures with fellow modelers. Build one, build a fleet!

Pull all of this together with detailed, printer- friendly, step-by-step photographed instructions, and user support via the WorldWorks forums, and you have one product that is hard to pass up. So what are you waiting for? Get sailing, ya scurvy-ridden scalawag!

I have this one from way back and used it for my Savage Tide game. It took me a while to build (roughly 2 weeks total!) but was totally worth it. It did service as several ships in the Savage Tide Path and with some retro fitting I think I can alter it to be a smaller ship in a future game. I love this company and their stuff.
Here are some pics of My Maiden.

Thanks a lot for the pictures, Fake Healer! Now I can imagine how it looks like. Is it easy to remove decks and put them back together? For example, if a fight moves from the upper deck down into the hull, will it stall the combat for a long time to remove the upper deck or is it easy to do so and continue?
I'm running a sea-faring campaign right now and this looks very nice!

As a long-standing WWG customer and papercrafting addict, I can't even say how much stoked I am for this new partnership.

'Cause you know, there're rumors, they say... :-)

They come right off with no problem at all, it may stall combat for 30 seconds to a minute to remove the upper deck, exposing the lower. I used it as the Blue Nixie in There is No Honor from Savage Tide and the one part was a sort of raid on the ship by the PCs and a running battle across the decks culminating in a Rhagodessa (giant spiderlike creature) fight below decks. It ran really smooth.

Absinth, if you'd like to take a closer look at the Maiden, by all means click on the "Free promo pack" link at the bottom of the product description (for any of our products, for that matter).

It'll give you the full-size versions of the small images shown in the product graphic.

Thanks, Fake Healer, for the compliments on the Maiden of the High Seas. I'm glad to hear it's been so well received and used in your campaign.

There's actually a third SeaWorks set coming out later this month...SeaWorks: Atlantis. Keep an eye out for it...I think you'll be well pleased.


Easily the most visually impressive of all the existing WWG products. Its just a beautiful model. Its one of only 2 permanent builds I have on display few people believe its really done it paper without opening it up.

And personally I don't think its really much more difficult than the other sets. In addition to the ship itself the sets selection of props is great. I routinely include them in other builds.

So...not to offend anyone, but this thing is made completely out of paper? Or cardstock? And it's $16.99? My only real worry is where the fel would I keep such a massive thing, and how durable is it after completion? (At least on average) I mean, I have two cats, a wife who hates the things I stash away everywhere (minis, cards, books, notes...). I guess my real question is really how durable is this thing?


I'm in the process of building this for an extended part of my current campaign -- party is sailing from Katapesh to Korvosa.

This is an outstanding model and well worth the $$$.

@ Drake_Ranger -- I own a bunch of Fat Dragon stuff, this is the first WorldWorks piece I've purchased and I would definitely buy more. The decks are made from cardstock burnished onto foamcore with glue. The rest is cardstock.

It is incredibly sturdy when assembled. It is, however, only paper.

It's a PDF, so you print it on the cardstock of your choice; some of that gets mounted to fomecor. (There are also parts that are designed to be printed on transparency film.)

I hasten to point out to anyone considering to purchase this item that you should instead go to worldworksgames.com and look for it there. Not only is it $11.50 US on their site, but it also includes the kitbashing set for free. (Normally $6.00 US by itself) I feel that I very foolishly was taken for $11.50 US. Yes, it was my own fault for not looking to the OEM before purchasing, but this lowers my opinion of Paizo.

Additionally, the beginners guide was not included in my pdf from Paizo as it is stated to be in page one of the instructions for step one, decking. Sadly, it was this omission that led me to their site and to my unfortunate discovery. I am going to build this for my Skull & Shackles game and I fully expect it to rock my players when they see it, but I will not trust Paizo again for third party products.

To clarify, third party publishers upload their own products onto our site. Paizo does not purposefully omit parts of a PDF submitted by a third party publisher. Please check your email for a response on this product.
