While the journey itself is currently available as a video game, soon players will be able to also experience the Sea of Thieves as a tabletop adventure as well.
Mongoose Publishing, a company responsible for creating various tabletop titles such as Traveller, Legend, and Paranoia, has stepped up to bring fans a new game set within Rare’s unique pirate title. According to the company’s webpage for the game, Sea of Thieves veterans will no doubt notice feel right at home with the tabletop title as they attempt to become legendary pirates once more.
Using the new Avast system for quick and easy play, you will race other pirates to buried treasure, fight Skeleton Captains on tropical islands, tackle Voyages for the Gold Hoarders, Order of Souls and Merchant Alliance, and brave Megalodons and Krakens as they rise up from the depths to thwart your enterprises. Based on the popular video game available for Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, the Sea of Thieves Roleplaying Game has everything you need to create exciting pirate tales on the tabletop. The rules are designed for quick, immersive roleplaying that favours action, problem-solving and above all, fun!”
Players can pick up the title as a PDF ebook or as a box set. While the digital version is only priced at $38 the box set will run players $76 and will include the following:
- 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.
Sadly, the Lord Guardian Sails that are mentioned above can only be gained through pre-orders of the tabletop game, though whether or not this is only for the box set or perhaps is also included in the digital version is unclear. Still, they do look quite snazzy and would make an excellent addition to any pirate’s vessel.
The tabletop game is expected to arrive sometime this October, though no exact release date has been given.
