  • Congrats John! It’s very excellent to see 7th Sea back in your hands. I’m one of those that has wanted to see a new version. I think it’ll be one of those rare sequels that is better than the first go.


    1. Exciting news! A group of us has been playing 7th Sea weekly for 15 or so years now. I even run a Space Opera variant at a local Con. It would be awesome to be considered for playtesting, if at all possible.

  • This is great news! I really fear for the future for AEG, but it great to see 7th Sea move to where it belongs!

    Will we see you adding your version of Poland into the world of Théah?

  • Hi John. this is briliant news – 7th Sea is a favourite – if not THE favourite – game of mine, and I’ve always held out a hope that it would return. I was running a session at a UK convention this weekend, but now it will be a celebration!

  • 7th sea has been my favorite rpg since I was first introduced to it. I’ve always felt it needed a bit of a revamp though. I would hump John Wick’s leg like a dog for a chance to be a play tester for this….. Or maybe I would hump his leg if I can’t play test……………

  • THANK THEUS! The d20 version of this reduced the game from amazing high adventure to just another fantasy setting. I about CRIED when this became “Swashbuckling Adventures”. It is AWESOME to have you back, and all my dollars are belong to you.

  • Oooh, intriguing! I’ve been running a (somewhat house-ruled) 7th Sea game for about 2 years now, we just hit session #75. If you are interested in someone helping out with a little playtesting or giving you thoughts on the pros and cons of the base rules, feel free to shoot me an email.

    Game wiki, to give you an idea of the awesomeness your game has wrought:

  • this made my year. our gaming group talk about our 7th sea adventures almost weekly. can’t wait to see what you do with it. Will the old books be re-released as i have lost a few due to attrition and moving house or “friends” who borrowed them

  • 1st Ed. definitely had a too-many-cooks feel to it. A lot of knacks could have been consolidated, and some skills could have been omitted with the unique knack-or-two they brought to the table being added to an existing skill. And proofreading suffered a bit…

    I guess what I’m saying is, if you’re looking for input, there’s lots to be had. Let us know a constructive place to stick ’em.
