Sea of Thieves is an exploration-based pirate game which relies on emergent experiences. While the title launched as a somewhat barebones title, it has now become so much more due to time-limited events. However, that's not where Sea of Thieves' story ends. On April 30, the game got its long-awaited "Anniversary Update" which adds cooking, fishing, harpooning, and single-player quests.

There's a long-standing tradition to convert popular titles to pen-and-paper games, and Sea of Thieves is getting the same treatment. Today, Mongoose Publishing announced that a "Sea of Thieves Roleplaying Game" was in the works. The description said the following.

The Sea of Thieves Roleplaying Game is your ticket to a pirate's life on the waves. Based on the popular video game available for PC and Xbox, 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 favors action, problem-solving, and above all, fun! Cracking open the box set, you will be playing in minutes with a voyage designed to teach both Gamesmaster and new pirates the rules as they enter the Sea of Thieves for the first time and encounter the challenges to be found there. Once this voyage is complete, the pirates will have their own ship and be free to set sail and discover new adventures. There is plenty to do on the Sea of Thieves – from assaulting skeleton forts and discovering long lost secrets in the caves of tropical islands, to battling vicious storms and escaping from the dreaded Kraken, this is the only roleplaying game where you can be more pirate!

You can preorder the Sea of Thieves Roleplaying Game for £60.00. If you just want the ebook, it's available for £30.00. However, if you want to add some more style to the game, you can always preorder the "Legendary Dice Box Set" for £17.50. The items are expected to launch in October and seem to be exclusive to Mongoose Publishing's website at the moment.
