Can anyone recommend a simple but flavourful set of Ancient Naval rules to use in a campaign? One that doesnt need tons of ships would be nice.

Try "Corvus", available as a free PDF download from my website:

http://www.rwlee.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/ancients.html#Naval

Although "Corvus" can easily cope with several dozen ships per side it also works with smaller fleets.

A version of "Corvus" with much better presentation, more text, diagrams, illustrations, cardboard ship counters, improved squadron lists, turning circles etc. will soon be available from the Society of Ancients. They usually charge about 3 for games published by them.

Sorry to push my own game, but I wrote it because I wanted quick-play ancient naval rules.

I have just been on the Society of Ancients website and they want 5 for "Corvus".
