The Good Fight - Designing Better Combat in 7th Sea


How do you make great combat in 7th Sea? 

How do you make things challenging when you're dealing with duelists?

GMs and players of 7th Sea expect a fun, fast-paced, exciting story to unfold when they sit around the table. There’s no reason your combats can’t be as meaningful, interesting, and challenging as the rest of the play experience, but to get the most out of each combat encounter the GM should take care to design them in a way that plays to 7th Sea’s strengths. In this supplement you’ll find 6 steps to consider when planning a combat, and some (very straightforward) dice math. By thinking through your combat design in this way, you can make sure every fight feels significant, challenging – and most important – fun!  


➢     The “Good Combat Planning Checklist” gives you tools to quickly put together excellent and engaging combats

➢     The “Danger Dimensions”(!) help you think about combat threats as more than waves of brute squads or an epic-strength villain

➢    How Do You Solve a Problem Like Duelists? Creating Meaningful Challenges When the Party Has One or More Duelists

➢     “Party Strength” dice math: learn to estimate how many Raises (and how much damage output) your players will have each Round, so your combats last just long enough

➢    Pacing & Improvisation: GM Options to Keep Things Moving

➢    Put it all together, and roll dice!

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.
