Crescent Empire in Print and Khitai Quickstart Survey

Posted by John Wick (Creator)

Hi folks!

We’ve got a brief update for you today, with a longer production update coming later this month. Read on!

Gen Con and ENnies

A big thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello at Gen Con. It was great being able to deliver Khitai Quickstarts to you in person and to share our excitement for the upcoming East launch.


Thank you also to everyone who voted in this year’s ENnies. We were overwhelmed by your support. Because of your enthusiasm for the return of 7th Sea, we came away with:

It’s taken a crew to get here, and this crew couldn’t be happier. Thank you!

Crescent Empire in Print!

As you may have already seen in your email, we’ve received the print copies of Crescent Empire and we’re ready to ship them out to our backers. Liz Chaipraditkul, as Lead Developer, did an amazing job bringing this book to print. We’re thrilled to see Terra expanding before our eyes!

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:

Coupon code error warning: Unfortunately, this batch of coupons imported into backerkit with a glitch that’s added a forward slash character at the end of the coupon code. If you copy/paste your code into the website and it’s not accepted, you’ll have to remove that slash from the end of the code: CRESCENT/ should be changed to CRESCENT

Apologies for that inconvenience. We’ll figure out why that happened so we can prevent that from happening when future codes are delivered.

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, Nations of Théah Volume 2, or the newly released 7th Sea novels!) 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 Crescent Empire and want to pick one up… now is a great time to buy your copy direct from our webstore:

Congrats again to Liz Chaipraditkul and the crew of Crescent Empire! They’ve put together another beautiful book, so join us on a journey from the courts of Iskandar to the dunes of the 8th Sea!

Khitai Quickstart Survey

Khitai Quickstart
Khitai Quickstart


If you haven’t already downloaded the Khitai Quickstart, it’s available now as a free download on DriveThruRPG. In an effort to keep questions and feedback about the quickstart in one place, we’ve created a four-question survey form to collect your input.

As with sourcebook previews, 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 the above link by Wednesday, September 13th at 10:00pm Eastern.

We’ll be announcing the official launch date for the Khitai Kickstarter soon, and after processing your survey questions and feedback, we’ll address some of the most common questions in a blog post before the launch of the Kickstarter.

Stay tuned, and following along online as we share art previews, blog posts, and stories from Khitai!

      @Riley Crowder - Yes! There's a production update coming before the end of the month. The production schedule on the website will get an update at the same time!

    2. Riley Crowder

      Any chance we could also get an updated release schedule with estimated dates based on current production schedule for the rest of the 7th sea content still coming?

      Don't know if yourselves or the people at DTRPG did something, but it downloads now.

    5. merrygoblin

      Having trouble with that Khitai PDF on DTRPG - downloads (repeatedly) as a file that looks too small and appears not to be a valid PDFfile.

      @Brian Hykes - Please email I can look up your account info.

      My discount code does not follow the format indicated and is not accepted in the store as a coupon.

    8. Kevin Brown on

      Error in coupon code... And here I thought I'd accidentally hit the \ key.

      Fantastic news! I'm also very excited about 7th Sea East and hoping I can put enough away to add-on every stretch goal as it goes!
