Freeport – D20 pirate-fantasy-horror

Wednesday 3 June 2015

The Pirate's Guide to Freeport is the centerpiece of our Freeport BundleIn June 2015 we presented the Freeport Bundle, an all-inclusive ticket to Freeport, the original D20/OGL pirate-horror-fantasy City of Adventure from Green Ronin Publishing.

Freeport is a place of grubby action and desperate adventure, where the supernatural is real but not easily controlled, where crime and greed have more sway than curses and spells, where pirates may be more dangerous than monsters, and where you live on rum and sea biscuits, not waybread and nectar. It’s horror. It’s fantasy. It’s high adventure. It’s low comedy. It’s piracy and black magic and sunken cities and mad alchemists and thievery and evil cults and political corruption and gang warfare and suspicious lumps in your fish pie. It’s the City of Adventure. No lie.

Classic fantasy elements, cruel-hearted pirates, and Lovecraftian horror converge in the rum-fueled metropolis known as the City of Adventure. The premier city setting of the D20 System, Freeport debuted in August 2000 in the ENnie- and Origins Award-winning adventure Death in Freeport. Many sourcebooks and adventures followed, along with conversions for Pathfinder, Savage Worlds, and other systems. (We offered the Fate Freeport Companion in our November 2014 Bundle of Fate +2.) This offer presented the original D20-based books with everything you need to run your own D&D 3.x or OGL-based fantasy campaign in the City of Adventure.

Our Starter Collection (retail value $47) included these three titles as DRM-free .PDF ebooks:
