I was linked from the Doomtown: Reloaded Facebook group and wanted to find out what 7th Sea was all about. Looks like nobody has posted this, yet:

Oh my, yes. ANYTHING news with 7th sea is so welcome, so long as it's not the abomination that was "Swashbuckling Adventures".

For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

Is AEG just going continue to sell off all its old properties?

better than hoarding them like a crazy cat lady.

In this case it seems like AEG is still going to publish 7th sea stuff, but rather than be the licensor, they will be the licensee.

I'm glad to see movement in the property, though a quick review of JWP's output doesn't fill me with hope for new cards. Maybe a new RPG at best?

I had the same thought.

Though I guess, a new RPG would breed new interest in the property and could *lead* to a reboot of the card game eventually.

Couldn't hurt anyway.

If you could touch the alien sand and hear the cries of strange birds and watch them wheel in another sky, would that satisfy you?

An RPG would be best.

That's what I've thought as well.

Just to clarify here -- from my understanding it ONLY has to do with the RPG, which I also understand Wick has wanted for years. Since AEG doesn't really make RPGs anymore, this makes a lot of sense.

What I do bet (no inside info) though is everyone'll be watching the success of the RPG property to see how well it does for other products.

Do you need more card ideas for the D&D Adventure System games?

Being unfamiliar with 7th Sea, I saw the headlines and thought. "What on earth does a pirate game have to do with the Keanu Reeves movie?" I clicked this link to find out.

Based on recent developments with L5R, AEG doesn't seem very interested in card games other than Doomtown. I'm guessing that the 7th Sea RPG will have to hit it VERY big in order to spawn anything other than reskins of existing AEG games.

Yes, the CCG seems far away at this point, but you never know. For those who are interested in new cards there is a fanset in the works here: http://www.7thsea.info/#!Fanset-Westernly-Winds-Draft-Releas...

Best,

Sorry, I guess I should have clarified: AEG seems to have (little to) no interest in collectible/customizable/living/expandable/build-your-personal-deck(s)-beforehand card games other than Doomtown. The R9E expansion notwithstanding, the other (this type of) card games are losing the company's attention.

Also, if that was a hint about Smash Up: 7th Sea, I'm not sure how I'd feel about that. But I am waiting for Epic Adventure still!

Indeed, this just concerns the RPG. The release made a point to note that AEG retained certain other rights for the time being (IE presumably the card game as I don't know to what else they'd be referring):

Quote:
AEG will still retain rights to publish a number of products within that line over the next few years and we are negotiating and planning what that will be but have no announcements at this time.

They could also be referring to boardgames. AEG does a lot of retheming of small board games like Love Letter to different settings.

They did a retheme in the last black box for one of their games, to a non-7th sea pirate theme. I don't remember which or what tho.

I've been waiting for years for a 7th Sea board game.

John Wick Presents will be publishing a new RPG in 2016 and there is talk of other games as well (card, board, etc.) using the 7th Sea IP also published by JWP's.

I am working on the RPG and that's all I can say for certain now.
