My new rules to support a Dark Matter sea-tale, set in the 18th century.
This submission contains notes on Virtue and Vice, skill descriptions, a Skills List, Supporting Cast (with Teamwork and Mass Combat mechanics), 18th century warships under Warships rules, and sailing.

Hmm, hope this gets better. Make table BORDER=0 to turn off those table edges (unless you like them). I will re-rate it later.
Bare Knuckle fighting is what? extra tough brawling?
I don't mind this kind of stuff, as long as there is other cool stuff too.

Fair comment, I need to add a lot of the text that I've posted to Forums to explain this a bit better. I have found, though, that a complete skill list (not a list of additions) is almost mandatory for running a variant campaign like Dark Matter itself. All credit to Dale Thurber for the original Dark Matter Skill List.
Bare-Knuckle prize fighting represents the small amount of artful training, and large amount of experience that a semi-professional fighter would have over an untrained brawler. In the period, working-class professional fighters were the famous champions, but many well-born gentlemen were notorious for prize-fighting for fun and side wagers.
Counting this as Power MA gives a lot of credit to the 18th-century training regime, but then, perhaps we in the West give too much credit to kickboxing and the like.

Promising start Uncle Jimbo, but maybe some RP-centered stuff would serve to hook interest faster. I want to feel what this world is like. Keep it coming!

It need too much work... and maybe you should use different colours for the headlines to make reading easier.
Needs some work and a lot of polishing.
