Freeport Backgrounds

Freeport, City of Adventure, is Green Ronin's signature fantasy city, and one with a long history. The company's second-ever release, Death in Freeport, brought the City of Adventure to the attention of gamers back in 2000. From that humble 32-page adventure, Freeport grew to be a storied city featured in many books and home campaigns. This culminated in the Pirate's Guide to Freeport, a systemless sourcebook describing the city in full detail and offering dozens of plots, adventure hooks, and NPCs.

With the success of Dragon Age, the first RPG built around the Adventure Game Engine (AGE), it was only natural to look at using AGE to run Freeport adventures. The meat of the material in this PDF was originally written to explore that idea and published as an article in Kobold Quarterly in 2010. Now that Green Ronin is publishing AGE branded PDFs like the Battle & Loot and AGE Explorations series, it seemed an opportune time to revisit Freeport. You can use the material presented here to run a Freeport game proper or incorporate it into the setting of your own AGE fantasy campaign, perhaps in conjunction with the divine miracles system from AGE Explorations: Gifts of the Gods.

This product provides eleven backgrounds for use with Freeport: nine from the original article and two new ones (Goblin Sneak and Hobgoblin Tough). Get AGE Explorations: Freeport Backgrounds today!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
