Green Ronin's August Releases
August is a busy month for Green Ronin Publishing. Green Ronin’s legendary Freeport setting gets a major updating with the Pirate’s Guide to Freeport, and there will be immedidiate support in the form of the True 20 Freeport Companion and the Dark Wings Over Freeport adventure. Fans of the Mutants and Masterminds RPG will have a new setting sourcebook on which to hang their adventures and True20 game masters will rejoice at the True20 Narrator's Kit. Freeport is Green Ronin's signature city setting and has been home to thousands of RPG campaigns since its launch in 2000. Classic fantasy elements, cruel-hearted pirates, and Lovecraftian horror come together in the rum-fueled metropolis known as the City of Adventure. The Pirate’s Guide to Freeport is the definitive new sourcebook for the City of Adventure, set 5 years after the events of the original Freeport Trilogy. This is a pure setting book, focusing entirely on the people, places, politics, and perils of Freeport and containing no game statistics of any kind. The Pirate’s Guide to Freeport can thus be used with any fantasy RPG and Green Ronin will be providing companion products for popular systems like True20 and d20. This massive, 256-page hardcover has a suggested retail price of $34.95. The True20 Freeport Companion gives players and narrators everything they need to enjoy exciting campaigns in the City of Adventure with the True20 rules. The book includes new heroic paths and feats, True20 stats for all the major NPCs, and a new Freeport adventure. True 20 Freeport Companion is a 128-page softcover book with a suggested retail price of $23.95. To make it even easier for Freeport GMs, a special Bleeding Edge adventure also debuts along with the Pirate's Guide: Dark Wings Over Freeport. This module features both d20 and True20 stats, so fans of both games can get to gaming in Freeport right way. This 36-page adventure retails for $11.95. Game masters of True20 Adventure Roelplaying will also be delighted by the True20 Narrator's Kit. This features an incredibly sturdy three panel screen with the thickness and toughness of a hardback book. It's paired with an introductory adventure, Last Voyage of the Stellar Galleon, by Star Wars RPG author Rodney Thompson. The True20 Narrator's Kit retails for $19.95. Being a teenager is hard enough: school, work, parents, friends, dating, and more without complicating matters by adding super-powers and a secret identity to the mix.

In it, you’ll find all you need to run a teen heroes campaign of your own, with all the trials and tribulations that entails.
