The Pirate’s Guide to Freeport will be debuting at long last at Gen Con next month in Indianapolis. While we had originally hoped to get the book out sooner, it is only fitting that it come out on Freeport’s anniversary. It was 7 years ago that Death in Freeport debuted at Gen Con 2000 and the City of Adventure was unleashed on the world. We hope you’ll join us in Indianapolis to celebrate 7 years of Freeport and the beginning of the city’s new era.
But wait, there’s more good news! This week the True20 Freeport Companion and Bleeding Edge Special: Dark Wings Over Freeport are going to print. As long as there are no hiccups at the printer, both of those books should also debut at Gen Con. The True20 Freeport Companion, the first of our rules companions for the Pirate’s Guide, gives you all the mechanics support you need to run a Freeport campaign with the True20 rules. It includes stats for the major characters, new heroic roles, rules for corruption, madness, and ritual magic, an introductory adventure, and much more. Dark Wings Over Freeport is a d20 System adventure for mid-level characters that delves into the background of the city’s most notorious underworld figure, the crime lord Finn. It also includes an appendix with True20 stats, so both d20 and True20 fans can enjoy it.
If you cannot make Gen Con this year, never fear. All three Freeport books will be showing up in stores within a few weeks of the convention. This makes August Freeport’s biggest month ever and that’s as it should be. It’s been a great 7 years and it’s about to get ever better.
