Hey, if you want we can get together for some Ram Speed or Broadsides &
Boarding parties - both great for use with TFT - even Conquest of the
Empire if your interested.

Here are some notes for Ram Speed with TFT.

conversion notes ? Ram speed
Ancient Seacraft. Sailing ships use Metagaming?s Ram Speed which provide
construction rules for large Rowing Ships. Additional Sailing components
and monetary costs have been added. 
See also TSG #24, page 20 ? Ships & Swords by Glenn L. Williams.
Remember that all conversions are strictly for the purposes of being able
to go from Role-playing to Tactical Combat and back again. There is no
attempt to simulate any kind of realism whatsoever. For example, no where
in Ram Speed ? or the conversion notes below ? does it take into account
the 170 rowers/slaves. And of course, if simulating different kinds of
ships these men wont even be there!

small bow (1d6-1), and dagger (1d6-1).
