Hello and happy spring! We hope this update finds you in good spirits and warmer weather.

We’ve had some small delays as we adjust to our new production schedule. Rest assured, these delays are necessary to promise the same level of quality of our previous sourcebooks. Current timetables are as follows:

  • The New World: COMPLETE
  • Lands of Gold and Fire: proofing, PDF delivery estimated April 2018
  • The Colonies: copy editing to layout, PDF delivery estimated May 2018
  • Secret Societies: copy editing, PDF delivery estimated June 2018
  • Cities of Faith - Vaticine City: layout to proofing, PDF delivery estimated April 2018
  • Cities of Faith - Iskandar: copy editing to layout, delivery TBD
  • Cities of Faith - Quamontaigne: dev editing, delivery TBD
  • Maps: Colonies map dev review, estimated May 2018*
  • The Gossamer Empire: layout, electronic delivery estimated early May 2018

*Why the map delays? The print maps have been delayed due to the extensive research that’s gone into naming locations for The Colonies sourcebook map. We’re excited to get the maps into your hands, and hope to have PDF previews in April! Thanks for your patience!

      Excited to have Lands of Gold and Fire in the process of getting its final edit in the coming weeks! Hoping we see the finished pdf and a maps preview by April's end

      7th Sea is just begging to jump into steampunk, I would not have been surprised if the second edition had been set in 17XX with strong elements of steampunk. 1868 seems a bit too far in the future even, although it identifies the genre easily, but given the setting and science 1768 would be easily enough to be full steampunk.
      We debated this on a French forum once, here is the link for the French speaking:…
      @John: two concepts I really think are just spot in it: science fiction (Jules Vernes like) Glamour, and Dracheneisen machines...

      Confirmed on Facebook this morning. 7th Sea 1868 is actually going to happen, in 2020 or so.

      I saw the date and thought to myself somethings not right here.
      Something for the future. Pun Intended.
      Looking forward to Lands of Fire and Gold.

      That totally falls in the category of stuff I want to be real, like much of the Think Geek stuff. Klingon Fridge magnets? Take my money.

      Nice April's fool joke.
      That said, it could be a brilliant idea. But let's finish this KS and have all the Khitai stuff, including all the unlocked stuff :( before developing that idea, shall we?
      Regarding this KD, any idea of timing for the Cities of Wonders stuff?

      Love the text previews! Despite what day is today, I feel it's a brilliant idea :P

      Hahaha! I love the "text preview." Steampunk 7th Sea? I'm there!
