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

Posted by John Wick (Creator)

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!

      "Play as male, female, or non-binary; gay, straight, bi, asexual, or poly."

      You forgot queer, transgender, transsexual, demisexual, twospirit, intersex, ally and pansexual. Tssss, I find your lack of inclusivity disturbing.

      @AJ and Jose, If you look closely, you'll see that John stopped advertising the weekly adventure drop in the KS updates after that October 22 msg. So it wouldn't seem to have fallen on deaf ears. Given the circumstances, I don't see an issue with this update and am happy to see 7th Sea out there in different forms of media. But you're right, it has nothing to do with the KS or the maps. So...

      Wondering how much longer we have to wait for the maps.

      Jose - Agreed. I would turn off notifications from this Kickstarter (like I have for Onyx Path Kickstarters where I've gotten my books and don't want emails about every "next big thing" from them), but I'm still waiting for my maps and thus feel the need to check out every notice. I see the same complaints on the non-Kickstarter related October 22nd update (shilling a new adventure for sale), but it looks like those comments then fell on deaf ears, as likely will these

      May I ask that you folks only post updates to the Kickstarter directly relevant to the Kickstarter? I don't appreciate the frequent cross-promotion, and I feel it's an abuse of your captive audience.
