The 7th Sea War of the Cross board game Kickstarter.

Yeaah this one I need to clear with my wife first. Or maybe get my  7th Sea gaming group to help pony up for it. I think that The War of the Cross will be worth the hundred bucks, but: well, you know how it goes.

My players and I did combat for 7th Sea today.

It was an interesting time, although we’re all going to have to look more closely at the rules.  I also probably should make sure that the Villains have more dice in their pool to do Villainous stuff. Well, that’s how you learn.

If you’re interested: the major thing that we took away from 7th Sea combat is that it’s a bit more abstracted, or at least that we were treating it as abstracted.  It was very easy to jump about and shift focus, which is fine if you’re used to actually roleplaying and improvising dialogue. If you’re more of the ‘I hit him with my weapon for 1d8 damage’ school of gaming then you might find it less intriguing.

All in all, I think that the combat system works, but it’s not very intuitive. We may end up coming up with significant numbers of house rules.  Which, hey, is just what we all did with first edition 7th Sea!

In the Mail: 7th Sea: Pirate Nations.

Just in time, too: there’s a Villain in there that will be useful for the game I’m running now.  Alas, it does not have the writeup of my wife’s character in it, but it’s early days yet. Nowhere near soon enough to even thinking about grumbling..

The 7th Sea’s Explorer’s Society site is live.

Finally. Basically, it’s a format for making your own 7th Sea material and, hey, selling it (you get 50% of any profits, John Wick gets 25%, DriveThruRPG gets 25%).  This is acceptable, given that John Wick’s also made a bunch of free stock stuff available for people who want to do this, including maps, pictures, coats of arms, that sort of thing.  I gotta sit down with my gaming group (we’re in the middle of a 7th Sea campaign) next session and really TALK about this.  This may change how we run games for a while.
