The Duellist Academy


The one thing I have a bit of trouble with in Seventh Sea is the combat system. Dramatic and action sequences for anything else run great. I just can’t quite manage to make actual combat suit the way I tend to run. This is probably because I’m too entrenched in using First Edition, so I’ve combined the two here to offer a new way to run combat and brute squads.

If you fancy using this system, do everything you would usually do with Second Edition, but switch to this the moment anyone draws a blade. The only thing you need to change on the character sheet is how many wounds you can take before suffering a Dramatic Wound.

Essentially, this system takes the structure of the First Edition combat rules and refines it with the versitility of Second Edition mechanics. I’ve also taken the liberty of adding a few new options and actions for expanding combat.

Included within are:

Details on how to run Second Edition combat with the action turns system of First Edtition

Lots of new manoeuvres and combat actions to help make every combat swashbuckle.

A huge selection of duelling styles and advantages ready converted to the new system.

Rules for using Brutes, Villains and Monsters with this combat option

Convertion rules for 'Sharper than any Blade'

A few story hooks that add combat oppotunities to your game!

This product used to be titled 'Flashing Blades' but is otherwise the same as the original version. If you purchased it as Flashing Blades this version should now be part of your library.

I've been wrestling with 7th Sea 2e for a long time now. I finally threw in the towel and started to adapt the R&K rules, it didn't look too hard at first, but then it started to get more complicated as I delved into weapons, Dramatic seq [...]

Original electronic
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.
