I've been popping into this reddit every few months or so, and I've been meaning to get The Colonies once it comes out to complete my western side of Terra. Is there any update on how thats developing? Don't gotta mention just how late it issubmitted by /u/Shamsse
Hello everyone, I'm about to GM 7th sea for the first time, together with two friends, and I wanted to start with this adventure, especially because of its episodic nature. After buying the first 4 episode i learnt that there was supposed to be a final one as well. So my questions are: for those who ran the adventure, do you have any advice? Since episode 5 hasn't come out, how did you finish the adventure? Is there any information on the last epiosde? And any other advice is super appriciated!submitted by /u/DrRPJesus
I'm new here to 7th, haven't played a game yet but am planning one for my next campaign next year. I've so far just been checking out the lore of Thea, and while I love how indepth it is, I find parts of it confusing.
As the title suggests, I don't quite understand The Church and the Inquisition (though I've only recently been looking at them). As far as I can tell, the Inquisition is against furthering science and research, yet one of the primary things of the Church seems to have been about spreading knowledge. I'm even more confused with how the Church and Inquisition are most prominent in Castile, yet the Castillians seem to be, on average, the most educated of the nations.
While I understand this seems to be a more recent shift, in the timeline, I'd like to know what present Castille is like, at least in reference to knowledge and research. Primarily cause my campaign will focus around a Syrne artifact, and the party would need University researchers. Would they be able to do it in Castile, or would they need either the Invisible collage or to go to a different nation?
Thanks and sorry if the answers are actually obvious.submitted by /u/SlightlyAnnoyedCactu
Hello, I'm going to play for the first time this friday my first game and agreed with my GM that I would play a noble/merchant realy heavy on social skills.
Hoever, I have dificulties figuring out how to divide my points betwen convince, tempt, perform and empathy. Does someone have simple description of thoses skills and they limits ?
For exemple would snake oil merchants use "tempt" or "perform" ? Would traders use "tempt" or "convince" ? If I try to calm down a rescued prisonner, could "convice" would do or does it thave to be "empathy" ?
I get that it depends on the context and on the overall approach, but I think some outsides oppinions could really help me grasp this.
Thank yousubmitted by /u/HappyMrSkull
Ok. I just talked with my group ajd wanted to play 2e with a heavy focus in culture/social interaction. So I got Nations of thea vol 1 and holy shit, it paints a complete different picture of each Nation (im on chapter 1) than the core book. Like an almost complete redesign on the plot and interactions between factions and the population. And i heard that 1e is heavy with metaplot a la White wolf. So what companion books were well made that would be worth to acquire. They only have the physical version and Im not paying the comparison of 600 dollars for package delivery, so e-version must be. Or any other book that would help for a 17th century adventure? Thank you.submitted by /u/Vissiram
How does one do that in 2e? From the player guide, it seems its almost impossible to play a female hero in vodacce. The description on page 134 gives us only as slaves (fate witches) or as courtesans. The way the nation is described as this profoundly sexist nation seems like impossible to play it with any female character without going into profoundly uncomfortable scenarios, so what kind I do? Is this the same for 1e? Or should I just throw the thing and star from scratch with the nationsubmitted by /u/Vissiram
I just got the 2nd edition pack and I wanted to dm, but the group I might get are used to 1e. So i wanted to know what are the biggest changes from lore and mechanics between editions.submitted by /u/Vissiram
I'm making a very simple roll generator for 7th Sea that will automatically sort out successes.
In order to make sure it works properly, I want to know which is the theoretical largest roll possible for a PC in the game. I assume it's somewhere around 30 dice (5 attribute + 5 skill + talent + super magical object + being a graal knight or something similar + DDs).
Does this sound plausible, or am I missing something?submitted by /u/FaallenOon
I've seen a few posts by Michael Curry in this subreddit, clarifying a few rules issues, etc.
Do you know if there's an official errata document, or if those clarifications have been compiled in pdf form?submitted by /u/FaallenOon
I recently got introduced to the 2nd Edition of 7th Sea and I’m digging all the changes, especially the addition of the new continents and Sarmatia.
With the new map, it makes me wonder if Théah isn’t in desperate need a couple more new countries. A not!Switzerland in the mountains at the triple border of Eisen-Montaigne-Castille would be fantastic.
As would a cross between Hungary and Bohemia in the region on the map called “Bashanta” in Ussura. What do folks think? Would the additions be interesting?submitted by /u/QuesterrSA
I was wondering if there's somewhere I can find the calendarium of the official events in Thea, like for example the start of the Objcetionist Movement or the wars? I'd love to see the timeline, because now I'm left with nitpicking them from the books and it's really impractical honestly.submitted by /u/teeth_and_marrow
I have a great doubt, among my players, one took the virtue: glorious. Where each of your data counts as a rise. Can he throw de dices and add to the virtue (ex: 9 dices = 9(virtue)+ 4(throw) rises) or it's just the virtue rises (ex: 9 dices = 9 rises)?submitted by /u/Armatheus
From my understanding from reading about it, Urssa is seen by the other nations as being hostile and near uninhabitable. I know that this comes from Mother Winter, and it seems that all Urrsans fully believe in her. I also get that she will make conditions hard to strengthen her children, like harsh winters, but given that animal attacks basically never happen, it seems to me that Urssa, as long as there's an Urssan in the party, isn't too hard of a place to survive in. I'm looking at it from the perspective of a possible survival arch, and Esien seems the best bet.
Correct me if I'm wrong in my understanding of Urssa.
Side note, I've put it as 1st ed because I've heard that second ed changes some nations, though I don't know by how much.
Thank you, me harties.submitted by /u/SlightlyAnnoyedCactu
I'm playing a game of 1st edition soon and trying to get my head around how it all works. Specifically at the moment how it's different: Rolling a knack that you have ranks in Rolling a knack that you have the skill but no ranks in Roll a knack that you have nothing for
I was hoping to get a simple cheat sheet with this sort of thing, how combat turns go, repartee, that sort of thing.
Thanks!submitted by /u/MGJEvans
Is there a source I should look at for noble titles in different lands? I'm playing an Avalonian Noble in a 1st Edition game and I'm trying to figure out how to name and title them.submitted by /u/AdeptasMysterium
So I´m trying to get my head around the Risk-mechanics and wanted to learn from the Master himself (John Wick), so I watched "Lifting the veil - 7th sea at gen con online" on youtube, where he´s the gm.
But it raised more questions than it solved.
So they started in jail and one character tried to bend the jail-bars to escape so the risk was: "If you get more than 6 Raises, you can achieve it. But isn´t that exactly what 7th sea doesn´t want you to do?submitted by /u/Kertraenker
I've played a few campaigns IRL maybe 10 years ago and since then could never find a game to join. It's a shame that 7th Sea is so unpopular. Do you guys have any tips on where to look for online games? I'd love to play some more 1st edition.submitted by /u/UnemployedLFG
I'm trying to learn french, and i learn that full imersion on the language is the way to go. I like rpg, so i'm searching for some in french.

I can't find in the core rules an exact description (please correct me if wrong) but an episode seems to be related to a session, if not a session.
But importantly, how do you class it?
And how does that affect things like a hexe's ungents of dramatic wound healing?submitted by /u/SirWilliamOfS
