Mightier Than The Sword, softback adventures for 7th Sea, by Cris Dornaus, Lee Garvin and Eric Vaubel
“A Pair of Adventures That Prove Just How Dangerous The Pen Can Be.
Every swashbuckler has a fine blade to depend upon, 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. In the two adventures contained in this book, 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 the gilded surface of the Sun King’s golden city, a mysterious artifact holds 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 keep it. In a raucous race like this one, nothing is taken for granted.”
