Mightier Than the Sword
"Every swashbuckler has a fine blade to depend on, but wise men know of far deadlier weapons — those written on parchment with quills of ink. Writing can unleash floodgates of emotion, start a revolution, or inspire a nation to feats undreamed of. In the two adventures contained in these pages, they can do much, much more.
In 'Music of the Spheres,' Charouse is alive with excitement about l'Empereur's latest protege — a young musical phenomenon who has charmed the Montaigne nobility with her grace and talent. A lavish masquerade ball is thrown to honor her, but something goes badly astray... and danger waits for the band of Heroes who seek to put things right.
Unknown perils lurk beneath die gilded surface of the Sun King's golden city, a mysterious artifact hold dark secrets within its haunting melody, and an ancient evil must be vanquished to rescue a very special damsel in distress. Can your Heroes save the day and avoid the wrath of the most powerful man in Theah?
In 'The Golden Head of Korlak ur-Nagath,' the danger comes from a much baser source — the tawdry novels of an overblown hack. But within his cliched romances lurks a map to a fabulous treasure. It's over nine feet tall. It's made of solid gold. It may just be the most valuable artifact in all of Theah. And your Heroes know where it is. Unfortunately, so does the most wretched collection of rogues, scoundrels, and villains ever to sail the seas. The question is not only whether you can get to it first, but how you're going to to keep it. In a raucous race like this one, nothing is taken for granted.
Mightier Than the Sword contains two complete adventures for the 7th Sea role-playing game, complete with detailed NPCs and optional challenges to be inserted as desired. It requires the 7th Sea Players' Guide and GMs' Guide for play. Copies of the Montaigne and Pirate Nations sourcebooks are recommended, but not required."
2001 ... 48 pages ... AEG 7106
"What Webs We Weave... In a dark corner of Vodacce lurks a criminal mastermind known as the Scarred Man. Through strength, fear, and dark Sorte magic, he has carved out a comfortable empire for himself. But the threads of his destiny extend further than he knows, leading to a pair of heroic innocents who hold the key to his demise. Helena and Ramon, lovers, fugitives, and Castillian patriots, have deep ties to the scoundrel's past. Unless your Heroes can help them, he'll see to it that they have no future. From the fields of Castille to the alleyways of Porto Spatia, the tangled threads lead into the heart of true love, thwarted ambition, and a most disagreeable foe. Tangled Strands is a multi-part adventure set in the world of 7th Sea. It is intended to be run in several stages over the course of a campaign, and contains scenario descriptions, character run-downs, maps, and complete rules for your convenience. It requires the 7th Sea Player's Guide and GMs' Guide for play. Copies of the Castille and Vodacce sourcebooks are recommended, but not required."

"Primal forests cover mile after mile of landscape, stretching through barren plains and snow-swept mountains. The country of Ussura is a raging bear, ruled by a white-haired beast and guarded by pacts of blood. Her church defies the Vaticine, and her people call for strength from an ancient goddess deep within their shifting lands. Uncounted legends lie within her borders, hidden beneath ice and snow. She has many secrets – ancient ruins undisturbed since the dawn of time, walls of fire that tower over a man’s head, and animals that race through the night laughing at the simpleness of man.

She dares to educate her peasants, commands no standing army, and relies on the tremendous power of Matushka, an immortal being that defies definition and fiercely protects the nation she calls home.

Sophia's Daughters (Secret Societies of Theah, Book 6)
"Before the time when histories were written by scholars, and myths were translated into lore, an ancient people walked a land known as Bryn Bresail. They opened passages through time and space, and stepped out among turmoil and discord - a place such as they had never known. With emotionless eyes, they watched the passions of humanity, vowing to learn... to emulate... to become.
They are known as the Eternal Sidhe. Their descendants still walk among us.
In her distant cave, an Oracle known as the Sophia watches the future approach in her crystal pool. Aware of events all across Theah, she maneuvers her followers to avoid an impending apocalypse. Using the magic of their Sidhe ancestors, her children must discover a way to hold back the tide of fate. They call themselves Sophia's Daughters, and if they fail, then all the machinations of all the groups of Theah will be swallowed in the destruction of the very world they seek to control.
Equality and power are just the beginning. The Sophia's Daughters are here to ensure that the ending never comes.
Sophia's Daughters includes:
• A detailed history and background of the Daughters, including prominent members, secretive protocols, and the organization's most closely-held secrets. It also includes a history of their cousins in Bryn Bresail: the Sons of Lugh.
• New Advantages, Skills, and Backgrounds, a new Swordsman school, new magic available only to the Daughters of Sophia, and rules for making magical potions."

Church of the Prophets
"Sixteen hundred years ago, a man stood before the Senators of Nunia and told them of a new faith. Thirteen hundred years ago, a second man preached a testament of that faith on the threshold of the Crescent Empire. Seven hundred years later, a third man called upon Theans to make war in the name of righteousness; to save themselves from Legion's Flame. These were the Prophets of Theus, the servants of Theah's God. From their words, the Vaticine Church of the Prophets was born. The Church has guided nations, been a bastion of religions belief, and safeguarded the souls of millions. Yet it has also spawned numerous rivals, crushed heresy with an iron fist, and caused cataclysmic wars. The faith of Theus grows, and through strength of will, the Vaticine Church prospers. Today, it awaits the coming of the Fourth Prophet - and its servants turn patient eyes toward an uncertain future.
Church of the Prophets includes:
• A history of the Vaticine, including new details on the first three Prophets.
• Expanded coverage of the dreaded Inquisition: their history, their organization, and the sinister abilities they use to eradicate heresy.
• Complete details on the organization, methodology, and beliefs of the Church of the Prophets.
• Thorough coverage of the Vaticine's biggest rivals: Objectionism, the Church of Avalon, and Ussuran Orthodoxy.
• New rules, skills, backgrounds, and expanded details for the Faith Advantage.
• Tips on playing members of the clergy, and ideas for integrating priest Heroes into a 7th Sea campaign.
• Coverage of Theah's most important religious leaders, including all nine Vaticine Cardinals, the Archbishop of Avalon, and a fearsome member of the Knight Inquisitors."
