2. Reception

In the November 1987 edition of Dragon Issue 127, Ken Rolston reviewed the first edition of this book, and thought it was "Good old-fashioned, prehistoric D&D game-style fantasy adventures by the shipload." Rolston liked the extra rules and campaign supplements, calling the new character classes, magic items and curses "neat stuff." He concluded, "What it lacks in organization and sophistication, it more than makes up for in enthusiasm and imagination."

Ten years later, in the December 1997 edition of Dragon Issue 242, Rick Swan reviewed the second edition, and was complimentary, saying, "The seafaring stuff - the best of its kind I’ve ever seen - covers the economics of sea trade, ship-to-ship combat, and naval equipment." He gave the book an above-average rating of 5 out of 6, but concluded that it was "better for veterans, owing to some complicated concepts."
