Given that AEG is transitioning into boardgames and now looking for worlds to develop over more than one game, you would think they would consider returning to 7th sea/Theah for some inspiration. I love this world and am sorry to see it neglected so badly.

I agree... but sadly, AEG has given up on 7th Sea and the Legend of the Burning Sands settings... :/

Both of these sound like much more interesting settings than what they're doing now. Admittedly, their faux-Japan setting is pretty cool too but I've tried L5R and the game just seems pretty blah to me. Something ELSE in that same universe would be fine though.

I totally agree. If Wizkids can resurrect the Pirates of The Spanish Main IP for a freakin' card game (yes, a card game!) then AEG should be able to do wonders with 7th Sea.

Or, if the gods smile upon us, AEG's first LCG.

At least Burning Sands is still kind of around, since it's technically part of the L5R setting.

There was a pretty big pirate bubble during the Pirates of the Caribbean movies. Maybe they're waiting for the public overexposure to pirates to fade?

Seems to me that there might be a "new" LCG format available here. Since AEG is so into Factions, to release faction specific story packs, with a mixture of unaligned cards would appeal to both collectors and players...I'll buy them all, cuz that's what I do, but my students can grow with the game without investing all the extra cash. The Fantasy Flight model doesn't have to be the be all end all of LCG models.

AEG has so many awesome dead CCGs that would translate wonderfully to LCG type games, I'm surprised they haven't tried it out yet. Heck something that was mostly reprints at first would likely do great. They could use Kickstarter to start it up even.

Now, we have the impending release of Doomtown: Reloaded. Is it possible 7th Sea might be next?

Scuttlebutt on Twitter is that AEG is planning to develop 7th Sea (along with Warlord) for re-release. However, it is still some time away; they want to continue to focus on Doomtown right now. Watch It Played tweeted about it. https://twitter.com/WatchItPlayed/status/577980610238640128
