I plan to run a game in the setting, but using another system, which edition's lore should I pick? What differs from both editions?
The primary details I am aware of (by reading some posts here) and that I care, is that there is more (and cooler) sorcery and overall fantastical elements in 1ed, Which I do prefer, in fact I did read the 2ed some years ago, and remember thinking the sorcery to be pretty boring, so this is a point for 1st edition for me.
In the other hand, the polish inspired Sarmatian Commonwealth do attracts me, as well as the New World and [japanese?] stuff (I am not so sure about this one).
So, which edition's lore should I follow, or better yet, is there a way to merge these elements I said to be in my liking?submitted by /u/TrueChristianKnight
I'm thinking about running a 2nd edition online game with few players via Discord, but the tools and dice bots I have checked don't seem quite apt for this system. Is there any tool out there that could help with properly tracking raises?submitted by /u/jaKiTo_2X
Just asking advices to know how you guys plan scenes and the raises the players will need to spend to overcome them.
The core book is all i have for now so i am trying to figure out how to plan things since it's really different from my usual D&D 5e.
It feels like everything is left too much to improv but i heard many people like the game because it's easy to plan, so i am probably seeing things from the wrong prospective.submitted by /u/silly_birb_Banned
Does anyone use hazards? I'm working on a modular card system in Tabletop Simulator to set them up quicker. You have your hazard card and then you add all the hazard elements you want to use by selecting tokens to lay over the cards./u/htpcFreak
I'm planning a 7th Sea 2nd edition campaign using Tabletop Simulator from the Steam store. You will need this software to play.
It will be an 21 and over campaign (no kids) either Friday nights or Saturday afternoons Eastern Standard Time depending on player availability. Please DM me to discuss.
The main plot will revolve around Explorer's Society and Die Kreuzritter members searching for artifacts and fighting monsters.
Please DM me to discuss.
Update: I posted a facebook video to show what the table will look like/u/htpcFreak
We are trying a new house rule at tonight's game. All heroes and villains get a theme song (including any ships). The songs are then mixed into the game's playlist on Discord. If the character is rolling while their song is playing, they get 3 extra dice on the roll.
Here are some example tracks
Queen of Storm (The Ship)
Lady Von Herig (The Villain)
The Red Maiden (Vampire Monster)
The Monster Hunter from The Highland Marches (Hero)
The Montaigne Spy (Hero)
The Sarmatian Commonwealth Combat Medic (Hero)/u/htpcFreak
I have been using Tabletop Simulator and Discord to play our 7th Sea Campaign and I really like it. Here's an example of ship tracking sheet that uses some house rules from The Explorer's Society. I can track damage, see what the ship's abilities are, and manage cargo. By turning the ship's properties into index cards, I only have to type them once and then reuse them for the next ship we make. Everything in our game has become a stage prop instead of a sheet of paper. You can't do that for every tabletop game but it works for this one./u/htpcFreak
