John Wick Presents has joined the ranks of publishers offering a hosted licensing community content program with DriveThruRPG. The 7th Sea Explorer’s Society allows interested third parties to produce and sell material for the 7th Sea roleplaying game without having to negotiate individual licensing arrangements. Participants can incorporate material from the game books published by John Wick Presents itself, or from any of the products uploaded by other participants as well.

Several adventures and rules options have already been posted to the Explorer’s Society. Piquing my interest, even though I’ve never played the game, is a set of Expanded Ship Rules with guidelines for sailing ship construction, customization, maintenance, and use in trade.
