Description

This morning I pulled myself up and staggered up the strange ladder onto the deck. It was broad daylight and I wasn't dreaming. I sat down against the bulkhead in gape-jawed astonishment. The deck was rough planks. Above my head fluttered a hundred acres of canvas.

The ship had three masts and square sails, and no smoke stack. I pulled myself to the gunwale and clung to the rigging. I was standing between two antique naval cannons on four-wheeled wooden carriages.

I lurched across the deck where this tall blonde woman in tight blue jeans was manning the ship's wheel. I had to ask, "What ship is this?" She just grunted and tossed a thumb in the direction of the ship's bell. I read "USS Constitution 1987. "I squinted at her in the bright tropical sun and asked, "Admiral Farragut, I presume?"...

Gateway to the Spanish Main is a game module for use with GDW's World War III role-playing game, Twilight: 2000. The adventure is set around a replica of the USS Constitution built in 1987 by Paradox Studios. The players will become crew members aboard the sailing vessel and will eventually be plunged into a plot of treachery, kidnapping, and piracy in the Caribbean Islands, a geographical region once known as the Spanish Main.

Gateway to the Spanish Main contains:
Rules for traveling by sail-powered vessels at sea and for seagoing combat in Twilight: 2000.
Deck plans for the replica of the USS Constitution.
Maps of Grenada and Carriacou, and descriptions of these islands, their towns, villages, and ports, with encounter tables.
