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
I am a new 2nd edition GM and I have a question about firearms:
I know it takes 5 Raises to reload after a firearm is discharged but could a player character or Villain wear a bandolier of pistols like Blackbeard and inflict a series of Critical Wounds one after another without needing to reload?

After deciding to end a 2E campaign once my dissatisfaction of the GM side of the rules grew too unwieldy, I floated the idea of doing 7th Sea with DnD "with a twist."
And decided to play with history by first figuring out what the official history's broad strokes. We've all been there and done that and know the dissonance between 1E and 2E is immense, not to mention the inconsistencies within 2E sources themselves!
So I threw them together based on the "official" 1E timeline and the "firm dates" 2E timeline compiled here: https://www.reddit.com/r/7thSea/comments/7b8b8y/7th_sea_timeline_sans_serif_version_in_comment/

How's this shake up to y'all?submitted by /u/PaleHorseToku
Is there a resource that has information on the Veil? I'm wondering if you can get something back if you lost it in the Veil.
My character had a "cat" (a bronze dragon) that was forced to shift in a portal crossing. She also failed the resolve test. so the dragon flicked her out. but not before she saw the creatures of the Veil attach him. But now she wants to see if she can get him out as well. Or at least see if there was a chance he survives and can be rescued.submitted by /u/mcknow
