This is the second part of of a pirate ship inspired by The Wormwood from Paizo's Skull and Shackles Adventure Path.

This is the lower hold, where the crew sleeps. The poles are for the crew's hammocks. You can see there is also a hole in the deck for the ladder to the bilge.

I've decided to release the ship exterior for a floor when I release the level above it. You can see from the pictures how I lay this out for play, with the bilge on it's own, and then each level above that sitting on the exterior from the prior level. This keeps the exterior from blocking the miniatures, while still making the multi-level effect clear. Check back after the release of the upper hold to find the lower hold exterior.

OpenForge is now a patron supported project. I use the resources that my patrons give me in order to get the resources to let me create more sophisticated tiles with a greater level of detail. Please, support me, and I’ll deliver an ongoing stream of awesome gaming terrain. You can find more about OpenForge and Masterwork Tools at our:



The parts that have been cut from the bigger files are designed to be glued together with short pieces of paperclip in the holes for strength, and to make gluing easier.

Use the full sized stls as a guide for how to assemble the two parts.

This is amazing but I'm running into some problems. I have been able to get all of the bilge floor and frame and the lowwr hold floor printed successfully but the lower hold frame is giving me some problems. Any advice on how you printed them? I have the front of the frame as one print amd it worked but then parts 2-7 I combined and it seems to be giving me some troubles. I then tried to print the frame part 8, the rear of the ship and it gave me similar issues.

I printed them one by one. I recommend against combining them. What kind of problems are you having?

I was having bed adhesion issues. I'm printing on the monoprice maker select v2 with hatchbox woodfill PLA. I have since gotten the issue worked out, I had my hot end temp too high and my print bed temp too low so the PLA was sticking to the nozzle instead of the bed. I have the bilge floor and bilge frame printed and glued as well as the lower hold floor printed. I printed what I thought was the lower hold frame but it doesn't seem to be lining up. This is my first print other than the preloaded files and a calibration cube.

Lemme know if you continue to see parts not lining up, it's always possible a part got named the wrong thing or put in the wrong place.

It was the lower hold frame, I'm in the process of printing the upper hold floor and will check to see it it lines up with the upper frame.
