January 2019 Update

Hey there, everybody!

So a lot has happened over the last few months. I've put out a ton of adventures, dropped PDF pages from Secret Societies, released PDF pages from the Khitai Sourcebook, and I've been proud to be a part of a HERO LAB release and the 7th Sea Greater Than Games project. I've been keeping myself pretty busy. 

But something else has been brewing in the background. I've been discussing with various publishers about becoming partners in the 7th Sea project. Those talks have been taking up a lot of my time. It's also put a damper on further releases. If other companies come in to help us fulfill the remaining obligations on the KS, they'll want a say on how we continue forward. That means I have to put a lot on hold until we reach an agreement.

And we're really close to making an announcement, but I need to keep it quiet until the papers are signed. I don't need to wait until the ink is dry, so the moment we finalize the agreement, you'll know. And I hope you'll be just as excited as I am about it.  

I also took a long holiday at the end of the year. It's something I needed to do. Writing an adventure a week, getting out chapters of Secret Societies and Khitai, negotiating with other publishers, and doing it pretty much on my own has been rough. Thankfully, Jessica Kauspedas has been helping me better understand the financial aspects of the company, where we made some mistakes, things we overlooked, paying our people, etc. The good news is, we've been making a lot of forward progress in that area. The bad news is, the more money we go to paying off debt, the less money we have to invest in the future. 

And that's where our publishing partners come into play.

Again, I wish I could say more—and I'm super excited about it—but not just yet. Soon. Very, very soon.

Thank you all for your patience so far. I'll be releasing the last chapter of Secret Societies next week for you all the peruse. I'm sure you'll be having a ton of fun with that. Also, another chapter from Khitai is in the immediate future.

I'm back from vacation and ready to get back to work. Hopefully, in a short amount of time, I'll be able to make some really big announcements. Until then, if you have any questions, please let me know.

Take care,

John

7th Sea: A Pirate's Pact by Danielle Lauzon

Hey folks! Our line developer Danielle Lauzon has written a Choice of Games adventure set in the 7th Sea Universe. You can find the game right here. Help support Danielle and check it out!

Fight for what's right—as an up and coming pirate! Battle slavers, sea monsters, and your own corrupt government to become a hero of the high seas. But will you betray your own crew for wealth and power?

7th Sea: A Pirate's Pact is a 200,000-word interactive adventure novel by Danielle Lauzon, set in the world of the table-top role playing game 7th Sea. It's entirely text-based, without graphics or sound effects, and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

Looking for adventure at sea? You’ll get more than you bargained for when you end up joining a pirate crew. These pirates are known among sailors for having their own moral code, one that is now yours. You'll have the chance to rescue prisoners, uncover a secret plot, and even build a navy to liberate an island fort full of slaves.

But you'll also be tempted to break your pirate bonds to seek your own gain. Would you still free the slaves if you could take out your own rivals instead? How far will you go to save your friends? And when you uncover corruption in your homeland, will you choose villainy or vengeance?

Earn your crew's loyalty and they might make you their captain, but get careless and you might have to walk the plank!

  • Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight, bi, asexual, or poly.
  • Choose from three different nations as your homeland, with distinct stories for each.
  • Romance other pirate captains, or compete with them as your rivals.
  • Fight for good, or work for evil.
  • Lead a rescue, uncover a secret plot, and defeat tyranny.
  • Visit various island nations to win them to your side and build a navy.

If it's the pirate's life for you, what will you sacrifice for freedom?

You can play the first three chapters of the game for free. Purchase the rest of the game below.

On sale until Dec 21! Buy now before the price increases!
