Curses! Acting upon orders of nefarious Cardinal Verdugo, villainous Diego de Silva plans to strike at the heart of the Thean economy: the guilder! Can your group of Heroes stop the evil plot and give the war-weary nations some respite? In a series of adventures, they will chase after de Silva and also:

-        Brave a storm!

-        Visit Vesten fjords!

-        Take part in a ball in Montaigne, while a revolution is brewing in the streets!

-        Investigate a curse, Witcher/Hexe-style!

-        Assault the Villain’s lair – a compound hidden in the middle of a cursed vineyard!

Gold and Shadows is the very first campaign book for 7th Sea 2ed. It consists of 4 linked adventures and provides about 20-30 hours of fun. It is divided into four chapters and each chapter offers five or more scenes, each with sample Opportunities and Consequences. The module also provides plot hooks, campaign tie-ins, NPCs and a lot of ideas to inspire your games.

If you don’t like long campaigns, you can pick the module apart and choose scenes or other elements as you please.

There are two hyperlinked PDFs to download:

-        the optimized version works great on mobile devices

-        and a slightly heavier version, which you should download if you prefer to print the adventure out. To save the ink/toner, click the layers button on the left-hand side and turn the background and art layer off.

Finally, don’t forget to download the map pack, which is provided separately (useful for online games!)

This module requires 7th Sea 2ed from John Wick Productions to play.

I just wanted to take the time to say that I was absolutely floored by the quality of this product. It actually fills a role I find lacking in the sourcebooks in that it really lays out for you how to think about the narrative in story steps and possib [...]

Rule System(s)
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.
