Freeport: The City of Adventure for the Pathfinder RPG, Green Ronin unterstützt von Fiery Dragon planen eine Adaption des preisgekrönten Fantasy-Rollenspielsettings für das Pathfinder RPG.
Chris Pramas, Erfinder der Reihe und Chef von Green Ronin, will das mit 50.000 $ veranschlagte Projekt über Kickstarter finanzieren.
Wer auf Halunken, Piraten und Kultisten steht, kann ruhig auf einen Blick riskieren.
Die Kampagne wird mit Spielwerten für die d20-Variante von Paizo aufwarten. Eine einfache Nutzung für andere Systeme soll möglich sein.
Übrigens die im Rahmen anderer Kickstarter angekündigte FATE-Umsetzung von Freeport bleibt von der aktuellen Crowdfunding-Aktion unberüht. Ob bzw. welche Überschneidungen es zwischen den Freeport-Interpretationen gibt, wurde bislang nicht genauer erläutert.
„Freeport is one of the classic RPG city settings and we want to give it the deluxe treatment in a new 512 page sourcebook. Aaarrrrrr!
Avast ye, mates! I have a tale to tell. It’s a story of pirates, thieves, merchants, sailors, swashbucklers, cultists, and the place they call home: Freeport: The City of Adventure!
At GenCon 2000 the Third Edition D&D Player’s Handbook debuted and launched the d20 era. On that day, WotC had no adventures or support material to sell, but thanks to a new-fangled thing called the Open Game License there was something else you could buy that day: a 32-page module called Death in Freeport from a young company called Green Ronin Publishing. We and Atlas Games were the only companies at GenCon to make the leap of faith required and see if D&D players would buy from third party publishers. And did they ever! Death in Freeport was huge hit, and two further modules followed quickly. That was the beginning of Freeport: The City of Adventure, and little did we know what a long life it would have.
Over the years there have been many Freeport books, and the city’s design made it easy to use in nearly any fantasy campaign setting. These last few years we’ve been concentrating on licensed games like Dragon Age and A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying, but Freeport was never far from our thoughts. We know there are tons of Freeport fans out there and we know that many of them graduated from Third Edition D&D to Paizo’s Pathfinder RPG. Thanks to the rise of Kickstarter, we now have a way of doing a new Freeport book the way we want to and that’s what this campaign is about.
We want to do a new edition of Freeport: The City of Adventure sourcebook that is bigger, meatier, and sexier than ever before. Our goal is for a 512-page full color hardback, with new locations, new NPCs, and a brand new adventure for low-level characters. The book will include full stats for the Pathfinder RPG, though it will also be easily usable with other games. Player-oriented rules support like classes, prestige classes, feats, and spells will also be available in a Player’s Guide to Freeport PDF. “
