What The Critics Say

7th Sea Core Rulebook Reviews

  • 7th Sea is an amazing world. It's fully filled out and well developed. It's a place with lots of stories to tell as well as a lot of places to explore …a fantastic take on the pirate fantasy RPG. " OVERALL SCORE: 9/10.

    — Throatpunch Games, Ringside Report on 7th Sea Core Book.

  • "If you’re looking for a game that delivers rope-swinging swashbuckler-y fun with the ability to take your own story by the reins, then this is the game for you. John Wick clearly knew what he wanted to do with the game, and didn’t waste time killing sacred cows to make it happen."

    — Philgamer, 7th Sea 2nd Edition Review.

  • "The game basically ended up as a way to just let our imaginations run wild… as my two friends and I started getting lost in the story we were telling, the dice and mechanics took a back seat to pure role playing. I actually found myself exhausted by the end of the session, but I was also exceedingly happy from having such a good time… In a world where throwing dice seems to be the main point of RPGs, 7th Sea gave me a breath of that fresh ocean air of storytelling."

    — The Coolship, 7th Sea Second Edition Review.

  • "Have you ever wanted to be a pirate? If not, why not? What about a swashbuckling hero along the lines of Inigo Montoya, Guybrush Threepwood or the Musketeers of Dumas’ stories? Or maybe you want to run a game, stranding a bunch of heroes on an island filled with wonders, horrors and buried treasure? I have found and run such a game… If you like swashbuckling adventures and heroic characters, this is definitely the best system."

    — Who Dares Rolls, 7th Sea Second Edition Review.

  • "…one of the most stunningly unique and innovative game systems that I have ever played."

    — Dan Wells, (YouTube review).

  • "To quote the Princess Bride, it has 'fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles…' What more could you want? Dear readers, definitely give this one a try!"

    — The TTRPG Factory, 7th Sea 2nd Edition Review.

  • "Is the game worth it? Absolutely. The mechanic is easy to grasp, easy to teach, and fun to work with. GMs have an easy way to work with things, players can actually play what they want out of the gate [...] and the setting has amazing potential... If you enjoy swashbuckling films and the Renaissance, 7th Sea is right up your alley. Honestly, I’d suggest this game to just about anyone, but there ARE people that hate The Princess Bride, so they’d probably hate this game."

    — Sticky Bunton, Sailing with 7th Sea Second Edition.

  • "It's possible to tell exclusively land-bound stories in a 7th Sea game a la The Three Musketeers; that said, the game's elaborate rules for ship-sailing and duels, along with the large number of piratical factions and antagonistic trading companies in the setting, make 7th Sea a consistently good option for telling Pirates of the Carribean-style tales of magic and high adventure in a tabletop RPG medium."

    — Screenrant, Swashbuckling Tabletop RPGs For Fans Of Pirate Narratives.

  • "7th Sea perfectly combines the originality of Indie games with the professional execution of mainstream games. It is a narrative, heroic game with very well-matched mechanics and a very rich world."

    — Poltergeist, 7th Sea Review (Polish).

  • “Listen, let’s get straight to the point, 7th Sea RPG is a genuinely exciting and immersive roleplaying game that will transport players to a world of swashbuckling adventure and political intrigue. Set in a fantastical version of 17th-century Europe, the game offers a seemingly endless rich tapestry of cultures, histories, and legends that players can explore through their characters.”
