 7th Sea: A Pirate’s Pact by Danielle Lauzon Posted: Sat, 22 Dec 2018 17:18:50  
Blogs, dark-fantasy, ebooks
Hi all, Matt's letting me take over the blog today to tell you about my newly released Choice of Games novel 7th Sea: A Pirate's Pact. I’m Danielle Lauzon, a long-time freelance writer and developer for Onyx Path and a one-time line developer for 7th Sea Second Edition. If you aren't familiar with 7th Sea, it's a game set in an alternate world 17th Century Europe (and the rest of the world as well). It's a game about romance, high adventure, and sorcery in the vein of Errol Flynn movies, Alexandre Dumas books, The Princess Bride, One Thousand and One Nights…I could go on, but I think you get it. And in all this we feature not quite but just reminiscent characters and situation from a recognizable history in a fantastical world. Magic is real, myths are real, and you play Heroes fighting against evil and corruption.
