In-Store Play: 7th Sea

Tramp’s announces its latest in-store play opportunity, the tabletop rpg 7th Sea!

7th Sea is a game of cinematic adventure in the vein of The Princess Bride, Pirates of the Caribbean, Zorro, and the Three Musketeers.  The second edition has added new and exciting elements reminiscent of The Witcher, and other darker stories.

Step into Theah, a world much like the Europe of the 1700’s, but where magic is an almost everyday part of life, and strange supernatural entities stalk the wild places.

A robust character creation system allows you to play a skilled duelist, a sharpshooter, a courtier, a sorcerer wielding strange powers, or many other options!

Christopher Roberts will be your Game Master in one of the following stories (decided by expressed interest below):

  • With a Faerie, Hand in Hand
    • A warning from a representative of the Sidhe sets the heroes on a path to unravel a mystery from the queen’s past and uncover a plot that can change Avalon’s future.
  • Truth and its Consequences
    • An opportunity to shake the tyrannical power of the Inquisition, making all of the Theah safer for sorcerers and scientists alike.
  • Doors of Blood
    • A death at a noble’s party leaves only one clue, a sorcerous portal left open by the body.  Can the heroes uncover the identity of the killer, discover their motivations, and prevent them from killing again?
  • The State of Vendel
    • New ways and old ways life side by side in Vendel- or do they?  Is the success of the Vendel League built hard work alone?  And why did the old rune magic fall out of use?
  • Blood Will Tell
    • A high-ranked noble is seeking to confirm or deny rumours about a rival.  What will the heroes find they begin to dig into the goings on of her castle?
  • Thunderbolt and Lightning
    • A small village has been completely obliterated by a storm that many have concluded to be unnatural.  If it was a sorcerer, why have those that police them not taken action?  And why did it happen?
  • The Rites of Spring
    • The mysterious General Winter seeks to freeze all of the world in endless ice.  A noble is suspected of aiding him, but this must be confirmed before anything can be done.
  • Twist and Bend
    • A prophecy points to a link between fate magic, and ancient artifacts that predate humanity.  But what seems like a largely academic mystery turns deadly.
  • A Tale of Two Pirates
    • Murder, myth, and mystery combine as two of the deadliest threats the sea has ever known come together- but will it be as foes, or allies?

New Fiction From Staff

Hi there, everyone.

In the past, I’ve posted some of my fiction works here on the Tramp’s blog, for example Recruiting, part 1.  I’ve gotten good feedback on it, as well as on the articles I’ve written for the store (which is most of them), so I’ve decided to try my hand at something new.

I now have a Patreon page.

Patreon is a platform that allows an artist, like a writer, to be directly funded by their audience.

So, if you’ve enjoyed my writing, please have a look here at my page.  Have a look at the free samples that are available, like this one.

Thank you for your time.

-Christopher J.P.S. Roberts

Aether Revolt Special Prizes

Are you interested in a prerelease, but the cold makes you want to stay home?

Do you need just that little extra bit of incentive to come out?

Well, perhaps this is it.

You may be familiar with the Kaladesh airships that have graced our store for the past few months, and if you’re not…


There’s the crowning glory as an example. 

Well, we’re giving players the opportunity to take one of these beauties home.

Come in first at our Midnight event tonight, and you get to take your choice of either of the big ships.  2nd, 3rd, and 4th place get their choice of the smaller ships.

Saturday’s event will see the remaining ship go to first place, and the 2 remaining small ships go to 2nd and 3rd.

Hope to see you there!

Aether Revolt Planeswalker Decks

This weekend will put Aether Revolt products into players’ hands for the first time, so we here at Tramp’s thought we’d take this time to introduce you to some of them.

If you’ve taken some time away from Magic, you might be a little confused.  “Where are the Theme decks?” you might ask.  Well, you won’t find them anymore; they’ve been replaced by Planeswalker decks.

Now, just in case there’s any cynicism at play here, I will assure you that, yes, these decks have actual Planeswalkers in them.

Observe:

20170112_105336

There’s Ajani and Tezzeret, large and life, and plain for all to see.  Want to pick up some Planeswalkers?  This is the easiest way to do it.

Apart from these cards, however, you’re also receiving a full 60-card, Standard legal deck, making it the ideal way to get your feet wet with the set, and give yourself a deck or two worth of instant playability.

Doesn’t sound like there’s much draw for more experienced players?  Well, then these two features might change your mind: each deck also comes packed with two boosters of Aether Revolt, as well as four exclusive cards.

That’s right, these decks come packed with cards you cannot get anywhere else.  Green/White Ajani can call on with Ajani’s Aid, Ajani’s Comrade, Inspiring Roar, and Tranquil Expanse; while Black/Blue Tezzeret comes packed with Tezzeret’s Betrayal, Tezzeret’s Simulacrum, Pendulum of Patterns, and Submerged Boneyard.

“Okay,” you might be saying, “That does sound pretty good.  But this weekend is ony the prerelese- these won’t be available.”  Well, that’s just not so!

All through the prerelease weekend, these decks will be available for purchase at regular price; $18.  Considering the two included boosters, that’s a pretty cheap deck!

Come to Tramp’s this weekend, and put these Planeswalkers and their spells at your command!
