The Crescent Empire Awaits!
And with a gust of wind in our sails, we’ve pushed beyond $340,000 (wow) and through all three Heroes and Villains stretch goals. You all are amazing.
$340,000 means that we’ve funded both decks of cards (Heroes & Villains) as well as the Heroes and Villains sourcebook. We’ve added the decks to the list of add-ons ($20 each) and to the list of pirate’s booty. We’ve also opened up two new tiers (FLEET ADMIRAL! and FREEBOOTER!) for folks who want to pick up all five sourcebooks.
And, with Théah at our backs, we head into waters unknown, across lands we have not yet touched, to places we have not yet been. For the new world is not the only home for mystery and adventure outside of Théah. No. There are lands very close to the lands we know that harbor mysteries (and dangers) as deep as any found in far-off voyages...
New Stretch Goal ($360,000): Iskandar, City of Adventure
We are excited to announce the Cities of Adventure series for 7th Sea. Each City of Adventure is a 40,000 word PDF detailing the Heroes, Villains, Plots and Perils of a city in the world of 7th Sea. GMs can use the many plot threads provided to build their own campaigns while players pick NPCs as allies, rivals, enemies, and lovers.
If we reach $360,000 we’ll release our first City of Adventure—Iskandar, Gateway to the East. The westernmost city in the Crescent Empire, Iskandar is a microcosm of the greater Empire, a place where many faiths, cultures and economies exist in a delicate balance, threatened by villainous plots at every turn. If a Théan wants to get to the Empire, he has two choices: brave the dangers of the Cathay Steppes or traverse the dangerous streets of Iskandar!
We will be offering more Cities of Adventure throughout this Kickstarter campaign. Keep your eyes out for them!
New Stretch Goal ($400,000): The Crescent Empire
If we reach $400,000, we’ll release The Crescent Empire as a 2nd Edition sourcebook in both print and PDF. All $40+ backers will get the book for free as a PDF, and we'll open up a new tier for folks who want to all six sourcebooks.
The Crescent Empire is a perilous group of highly religious, highly political Nations held together by gossamer strings. Its Heroic Emperor knows everything could fall apart at any moment, and so he must seek out fellow Heroes to assist him in his impossible task.
An ancient kingdom of pyramids, scarabs and death rituals... a kingdom of sweeping desert sands and fierce tribal rivalries... a kingdom who follows the singular voice of the One Prophet... these are just some of the lands you will find in the Crescent Empire.
The Crescent Empire contains all the rules you need to create Heroes from this distant land, including new Backgrounds, new Advantages and new Sorceries, along with NPCs, plot hooks, and adventures galore.
So much of the world to explore! So many more adventures to be had! Will we unlock The Crescent Empire before the day is out?
