The Pen is Mightier Than the Swashbuckle
Sea of Thieves has had a bit of a resurgence recently following its one year anniversary update, and now the folks at Mongoose Pub are making a version of the game that can actually be played on a pirate ship (lamination recommended)!
The game is already available for pre-order, and those who pick it up will be privvy to a PDF file of the game’s rulebook. According to the official announcement over on Mongoose Publishing’s website, rules are “designed for quick, immersive roleplaying that features action, problem solving, and above all, fun!” The whole box set comes with:
- Book of Pirates: Your introduction to the Sea of Thieves, with a complete Voyage that will teach you everything you need to know about pirating. You’ll be sailing the Sea of Thieves within minutes of opening the box!
- Lore of the Sea: A nice weighty tome that shows Gamesmasters how to run games and create Voyages, and what treasures and terrors await pirates on the Sea of Thieves.
- Book of Voyages: A complete campaign for the Sea of Thieves that will have pirates questing for the Ashen Jewels…
- The Sea of Thieves Poster Map: A giant map of the Sea of Thieves showing every island in the game.
- Pirate Ledgers: Six cards that show what your pirate is carrying and how close they are to becoming a Pirate Legend.
- Legendary Dice: Eighteen Legendary Dice that will mark you out as a Pirate Legend or scurvy landlubber!
- Supply Tokens, Weapons Cards and Quest Cards: Everything a pirate needs to sail a ship, fight enemies, and bring back huge hauls of treasure!
- Lord Guardian Sails: The box set edition contains an exclusive download code that will unlock the sails of a would-be pirate king in the Sea of Thieves video game.
