DisadvantagesClick to magnify



Almost 100 disadvantages for your Heroes and Villains, which, when selected at Hero's Creation, grant extra points for advantages. Organized both alphabetically and according to the points granted.

In 7th Sea, Heroes are larger-than-life characters, performing awesome things one after another. But are they perfect? Some of them, perhaps. But a lot of players like playing imperfect characters, ones with a fault, who - despite that disadvantage - still try to make the world a better place. It adds depth and makes roleplaying more fun, but sometimes a bit more challenging. However, this raises a question: if a player makes a Hero who is afraid of fire, perhaps they should be awarded with a small reward to alleviate the difficulty and sweeten the challenge. I hesitate to use the word “balance,” because 7th Sea is not about balancing Player Characters, but about telling awesome stories. And what is more awesome than a Hero who overcomes their disadvantage and emerges victorious at the story’s end? 

The Sarmatian Bestiary for 7th Sea 2ed is now available!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
