I think the important thing they put in to make it a bit more okay is that GMs are rulebound to always give you the chance to back out of a corrupting action before you roll. But yeah, I could see loosening the rules, especially on Hexenwerk and Sanderis sorcerers.

so... how difficult a roll is it to invent 7th Sea in the 7th Sea setting?

Alright, so as per the rules of the Invisible College invention rules: Start with TN five and a drama die, add 1 for every year after 1668 it was created in actual history, add +10 and a drama die for each leap of logic (which seems about right for "use of peculiar dice to determine outcomes for a fictional character for the purposes of gaming"). That brings it to a conception check of TN 346 and two drama dice. For the design check, size doesn't apply really, so base 5 plus 5 for "uncomplicated" complexity, plus 15 for the leap of logic, so tn 25 there. For Invention, base 5, plus 10 for Delicate (more delicate than an iron bar, less delicate than a clock spring), +10 for Medium Size (the whole suite of books isn't handheld, but is smaller than man-sized), +20 for the leap of logic, for a total of 45.

tl;dr: tn 346 and two drama dice to conceptualize, 25 to blueprint, and 45 to physically produce.

That last episode was great, from Valetines "No use clinging to life if I'm going to stumble through it broken" to Declans past catching up with him, good roleplaying all around.

The only thing that puzzled me was Nadire immediately escalating to dismemberment. Felt like it clashed in tone with all her words about sin and not taking the easy path in the last session and no one from the rest of the crew seem particularity shocked either. Duels over this sort of thing aren't all that uncommon in the setting are they? Felt like walking into court and shooting the guard in the leg for not letting you interfere in the proceedings.

More of a rowboat.

In the topic of the crew's dedication to each other, I get a little chuckle out of the couple of times that our respective arcanas all made us make heroic sacrifices so that we could escape but like all at once so we just ended up sticking around and fighting for a while until we all either ran away or won

It could work.  Valentin is dramasexual.

so rather than struggle with it, what was the meaning behind the titular ship?

As in why was it named that? It basically just sounded cool.

Oh, yes that, correct. At least as far as my high school french takes me.
