“Absolute Morality” that disfigured 7th Sea

This article was prompted by the "ask-me-anything" discussion started by Mike Curry, the Systems Lead on 7th Sea. And of course, the continued attempts to reanimate the decaying corpse of Absolute Morality into game design, especially in the 21st century, a morality of a bygone age and one of misplaced innocence.

Long Live the Prince v1 Actual Play

Our host here asked if I could put this in as a Blog, since they're shareable where forum posts aren't.  I've made some changes to reflect what's been updated since I ran the game.

I’m currently running a 7S1E campaign that started out in the Freiburg box set (and took a sharp left turn recently into Eisen Unification).  With the agreement of the players who were there, we took a week off from that and played through the 2nd Edition Quick Start instead.

A Positive Take on 2nd Edition [Reddit]

A Positive Take on 2nd Edition (by /u/PartyMoses)

(While I know this post is REALLY long, and I know we have a bunch of other threads discussing this already, most of those are extremely critical of the new rules. I figured it was all right to bubble up a post in support of the new system. I know some folks are going to disagree with me, and I can totally see why a lot of people aren't going to like the new system.)

Sorte Mechanics

We tried out using a sorte (tarot) deck instead of dice last night. I gave the players a choice of either using dice or cards. 3 chose cards and 2 stuck with dice. 

We discussed the major arcana rules, and liked the look of them, but as they were incomplete we didn't use them.
