Awesome / 7th Sea

  • The second edition Kickstarter, which easily smashed through its original $30,000 goal in seven minutes, proceeded to break every previous tabletop RPG Kickstarter record (most funded, most backers, most pledges), and went on to clear the million dollar mark handily, with a final total of $1.31 million.
  • First Edition did a fairly good job of making a swashbuckling adventure setting but it was noted to be quite Euro-centric in an age when exploration and trade ruled. Theah is still the featured continent in the primary rulebook, but Second Edition has introduced (or soon will introduce) entire sourcebooks for analogues of the Caribbean, the Middle East, Africa, South America, North America, and their native cultures.
