Syrneth Puzzle Box

Reddit Feeds - 19 hours 44 min ago

Bietrix de Veau {page 34 Heroes and Villians} has the advantage "Signature Item: Syrneth Puzzle Box (152)" I went to page 152 in the core rule book and read the 4 options you have for activating your signature item via hero points, but I don't know anything about Syrneth puzzle boxes. What do they do? Where do I find these rules? Does it do anything or is it just a signature item that has been described as a Syrneth puzzle box for story purposes?

A little doubt about taking another Hero's wounds.

Reddit Feeds - Sun, 03/11/2018 - 13:32

Just to check if I got this rule correct (page 181 of the Core Rulebook): it says that a Hero can spend Raises to take another Hero's wounds. This means that the first Hero is not negating the wounds, right? He's actually paying to get hurt.

Thank you very much in advance!

P.S.: Technically we could argue that the first Hero really is negating he wounds from the second Hero, but tomAYto, tomAHto.

I ran several 7th sea 2ed sessions and have some questions.

Reddit Feeds - Fri, 03/09/2018 - 04:22

It's first time I use 7th sea as GM, I played first edition but that was a while ago. I like system very much, thanks to all creators! But some questions arose:

  1. If villain activate his virtue that gives hero points, does GM receives danger points?
  2. How GM activates advantages of Villains that requires Hero Points? Through danger points?
  3. GM stories: do heroes need to have an outline of GM stories? E.g. steps?
  4. Should heroes get awards per season stories or per episode ones or both?

Thank you in advance.

New World Monster Identification

Reddit Feeds - Thu, 03/08/2018 - 22:41

Does anyone know what monster is depicted on pages 158-159 (Chapter 5 - Mechanics) of The New World sourcebook? I love the design and would like to use it in my group's next adventure, but it doesn't seem to match any of the descriptions in the "Gods and Monsters of Aztlan" section. Thanks!

Sell me 7th Sea 2ED

Reddit Feeds - Wed, 03/07/2018 - 15:10

With the second edition up on Bundle of Holding, I was curious as to whether or not it was worth buying. Obviously this subreddit is biased, but I'd like to hear why you like 7th Sea 2ED.

Dungeon World style 7th Sea Fronts and Dangers

Reddit Feeds - Sun, 03/04/2018 - 13:30

I distinctly remember someone doing a 7th Sea Dungeon World hack, developing a list of dangers to use in developing fronts. Can't find it anywhere, however. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Am I going nuts?

How To Interpret Player Action in a Dramatic Scene

Reddit Feeds - Mon, 02/26/2018 - 23:23

I just GM'd my first session last week, and I found myself at a loss as to how to properly interpret player actions. They would give me these great descriptions of what they were doing, but it felt like I was just interpreting them into wounds. For instance, during a ship battle, one of my players maneuvered their ship to take out the opposing ship's oars- I ended up interpreting raises as wounds against the opposing ship, as well as ad-libbing that the ship was incapable of moving with the oars. Is this appropriate? Should I be using narrative license in these cases, or should I be generating opportunities or some other mechanic? For context, I'm used to GM'ing Pathfinder, where things are much more mechanically defined.

Best 7th Sea Actual Play podcasts?

Reddit Feeds - Fri, 02/23/2018 - 13:55

Ahoy there! My RPG group from a few years ago is on the verge of getting back together, and the subject of doing a pirate RPG came up. Now, I ran a 7th Sea game a good few years back, although in retrospect I suspect I fudged most of the rules and completely ignored the lore.

So what with the big overhaul having happened, and the fact that I listen to hours upon hours of podcasts on a regular basis, I was wondering if there were any particularly well-produced 7th Sea Actual Play podcasts that would give me a good idea of how the game plays. Anyone got any recommendations?

Explorer's Society content question

Reddit Feeds - Fri, 02/23/2018 - 13:10

Re-post from the FB group. A question about Explorer's Society: when making an NPC's stat block, how much game mechanics info are we allowed to put in? Only the names of advantages or virtues, or their effect too? If it's a duellist, can we put the special manoeuvre in? It would greatly save game-prep time. I'm asking about copyright and what ES allows authors to do and what is off limits. For example in the newest adventure (Release the Kraken) an NPC's stat block gives the mechanical effects of the Arcana and Advantages, essentially repateating info from the Core Book. Can we do the same in our ES publications (yay!) or rather give page references (boo)?

Does an Aragosta Map Exist ?

Reddit Feeds - Fri, 02/23/2018 - 09:38

It seems there is no map for Aragosta, I'm quite suprised, even La Bucca got some. Of course, this let us have more freedom about what it looks like... but it kind of bother me. And I can't find any unofficial vision of the thing ^

I have a problem with a delivery made via johnwickpresents.com

Reddit Feeds - Mon, 02/19/2018 - 08:32

I bought two manuals (both Nations of Théah) plus a set of Hero Points. The thing is that two manuals got delivered, but they are not the ones that I asked (both are the same, The New World). The set of Hero Points did arrive too.

I've already contacted johnwickpresent.com via the Contact section in their homepage and their Facebook account. My question is: has it happened this to you? If so, how much do they take to answer and what has been their proposed solution?

This is a dramatic sequence, each day is a Raise, and after 7 Raises spent (February 25) my friend who is in the US and got the manuals for me (we're Chilean) returns to Chile.

Thank you very much in advance!

I've got a question about Seanchaidh Quirk.

Reddit Feeds - Sat, 02/17/2018 - 01:47

Description states:

Earn a Hero Point when you enforce the ancient aws of your people.

Trouble is I don't have any idea where to look for these laws and ways. Any help is very welcome.

[2e] Sorte costs

Reddit Feeds - Fri, 02/16/2018 - 13:30

Am i readin the book right? Early in the mechanics it says:

"When a Strega uses a Tessere, she spends a Hero Point and takes at least 1 Lash"

And it also says:

"Using a Tessere during an Action Sequence must take place on your action, and costs 1 Raise in addition to any other costs"

Here's my problem. The descriptions under individual powers emphasise the use of Hero Points and Raises. Are all these inclusive?

Does a Major Blessing cost me 3 raises (Read, Kiss, Blessing) and 2 Hero Points (1 Tessere use +1 for Major?) And X lashes

Does Minor Arcana cost me 2 raises (Read, Arcana) and 2 Hero Points (1 Tessere +1 under Minor dezcription) and 1 lash?

I haven't got much experience of the game, but that feels awfully punitive. Should the base descriptions be ignored and only pay the costs under powers? Or have others found it balanced?

Balkhans in 7th Sea

Reddit Feeds - Thu, 02/15/2018 - 10:46

So I'm looking to start working on Explorer's Society content tonight and what I want to do is add three new nations in a region of a super island between Sarmatia and Anatol Ahy. I'm probably going to call it Illyria in reference to the real world Balkhans and put it under Crescent rule. It's to include three nations: one based on Croatia-Slovenia, one based on Serbia-Macedonia, and one based on Bosnia-Albania. Basically a Vaticine nation, an Orthodox nation, and a Dinist nation.

Here's the reason I'm posting here: I know a bit about the Balkans but not enough. Anyone have any suggestions or input for this write up or just a general desire to see it happen?
