QUOTE: Mark Diaz Truman (published 2017-07-13, Thursday)

Hot on the heels of our last update, we’ve got a preview of The Crescent Empire, print copies of Nations of Théah: Volume 2, and… a bunch of ENnie nominations! 

ENnie Nominations! 

Thanks to your support and enthusiasm for the return of 7th Sea, we’re thrilled to be nominated alongside many other wonderful games in this year’s ENnie Awards! You’ll find Pirate Nations, the 7th Sea Core Rulebook, the free 7th Sea Basic Rules and Mark Richardson’s wonderful map of Théah among the other nominations this year.

It’s because of the hard work of the writers, designers, and artists that 7th Sea is back again. Folks like Mike Curry, Rob Justice, and Mark Richardson will be up for their first ENnie nominations, and we’d love to see them get the recognition they deserve. Voting is open here, now through 11pm EDT on July 21st. We’d love your vote!

Here are the 7th Sea nomination categories for quick reference.

Thank you! What a journey it’s been! And we're not done yet...

Nations of Théah: Volume 2 in Print! 

As promised, we’re ready to ship print copies of Nations of Théah: Volume 2 out to our backers. Danielle Lauzon, as Lead Developer, did an amazing job bringing this book to print, hot on the heels of Volume 1, and we can’t wait for you all to see it in print.

As with our other sourcebooks, we’ll be running the delivery for these books through our webstore via coupon codes delivered through Backerkit. We’ve already pushed those coupons out via email, but if you didn’t get an email, you can grab your coupon directly from the Backerkit Digital Downloads page:


Getting your book from our website is simple:

  • Get your coupon from Backerkit 
  • Go to the product page on our website: http://bit.ly/2sREOzi 
  • Add the coupon to your order at checkout 
  • We’ll ship the book to you right away

Note that your coupon entitles you to free shipping on your book, which applies to any other books you add to your order as well (like an additional Core Rulebook, Pirate Nations or any other JWP product!) This coupon is also good for one year, so you can wait to use it if you’re about to change your address or want more than one book delivered at a time.

And if you didn’t yet purchase a physical copy of Nations of Théah: Volume 2 and want to pick one up… now is a great time to buy your copy direct from our webstore:


Congrats again to Danielle Lauzon and the crew of Nations of Théah: Volume 2! They’ve put together another beautiful book… one that might just show up at next year’s ENnies!

The Crescent Empire Preview 

While Nations of Théah: Volume 2 is shipping out to backers, we’re ready to release our next sourcebook preview… one that dramatically expands the world of 7th Sea. It’s time for The Crescent Empire!

This sourcebook preview has also been pushed out to backers via Backerkit. If you didn’t get an email from Backerkit, you can grab the file directly from the Backerkit Digital Downloads page:


If for some reason your Backerkit doesn’t have the file, please message us via Kickstarter and we’ll get it sorted out for you. We can’t wait to get your feedback on our this book!

As before… please don’t email or post in the comments with your feedback. With over 11,000 backers, that would overwhelm our ability to deal with emails and comments. Instead give us feedback via this link by July 19th at 10:00pm Eastern:


We’ll be sending this book to the printer soon, so look for final PDFs before the end of the month, and printed books around the 1st of September.

Coming Soon...

Gen Con is coming up soon, but we've got a few more releases before we get there. Stay tuned for information about replacement cards for the Pirate's Booty, the first two 7th Sea Novels in print and our July production update. Thanks!

Crescent Empire is looking much better than the 1E one so far.  The sorceries are national, but some are also able to be learned by people of the right rligion.

well, they are hitting more of the diverse nature of the region.  But I am nowhere near well enough versed in those cultures to say if they did a good job representing them. 

The important issue will be if they are fun to play and don't break a system.

Really loving the feel of the Cresent Empire.
And I will admit, I am biased due to my love for Dune.
