Check out the latest project I am a part of! The campaigns my friends and I played hold a special place in my heart and I am thrilled to be a part of second edition and this is a much deserved update. :)  7th Sea has never looked so good!

Get in on the Kickstarter if you want some awesome rewards! 
John Wick brings 7th Sea back in a 300-page, full-color, hardbound book. Revised rules, revised Nations, updated for the 21st Century.

Marissa Kelly talks to us about Bluebeard's Bride, a horror game she’s working on with Strix Beltràn and Sarah Richardson Bluebeard’s Bride is a game for a female protagonist, like Heroine. In it multiple players act as aspects and drives in a single protagonist’s head. This lets simplistic tropes and archetypes create a much more complicated character.
