The year is 1745. The lure of open land, religious freedom, and riches to be made has drawn you away from your home in England to the New World. Unbeknownst to those who usher you across the Atlantic, your desires are more than what the authorities may find appropriate.

You like to delve into the world of the unknown. Your curiosity has led you to an underground world that hides beneath everyone’s nose. Rumors abound of the Indian shamans that can teach you new things, as long as they deem you worthy, or of the treasures waiting to be discovered. Relics of times long gone lie in wait, housing unimaginable power. Tomes of esoteric lore are said to dwell within shelters only accessible through hazardous terrain. But you don’t let silly rumors keep you from the occult power you seek. You are determined to uncover the secrets of centuries past and harness their dark powers.

However, many beings stand in your way, and the journey is not without peril. There are Templars to avoid, witch hunters to fight, natives to exterminate, and worse. It is said creatures of evil powers lurk across the New World, protecting the esoteric knowledge of centuries past and doing everything they can to keep their lands free of intruders. Your quests will not be easy, and scrutiny will be constant, but the payoff can be huge. For those who hold the power of the occult may hold the power to change the future.

This is the New World, and you are here to exploit its true secrets.

This is Colonial Gothic.

Portsmouth 1745 presents a full campaign setting set in Portsmouth, New Hampshire in 1745, licensed for use with Colonial Gothic (available from Rogue Games). But this isn’t just a campaign, it’s a complete delve into Portsmouth and the surrounding areas, presenting a new fleshed-out region for Colonial Gothic adventures! The basic timeline is moved from the Revolutionary War to 1745, before the French and Indian War. The lands are filled with turmoil due to the ongoing struggles with New France and the Native Americans. Somewhere amongst all this chaos, the occult operates, hidden away from prying eyes. Their mission? To find great, powerful relics!

Portsmouth 1745 includes:

  • New character options.
  • New spells and the introduction of dark magic.
  • A detailed gazetteer of New England, centered on Portsmouth, NH.
  • Detailed NPCs.
  • A collection of plot point adventures.
  • A collection of low-level adventures
  • A collection of mid-level adventures
  • New adversaries.
  • … and more!

Portsmouth 1745 is not a standalone book. It requires the Colonial Gothic core rulebook and GMs will want a copy of Bestiary at the least, all available from Rogue Games here.

PURCHASER
Portsmouth 1745 is a nice, big, satisfying campaign for CG. It was originally slated to be several books and I am happy it is all-in- one.

It starts with some very much needed "Assumptions," which sets the minimum and maximums for character ability scores at the start. There are some new character options: names, new backgrounds, and new profession, study and trade emphases. Two new types of magic are introduced: Herbalism and Louisiana Voodoo. New spells are also introduced.

In addition to the new spells and Dark magic, is the concept of Corruption. I was very happy to see this added to the system, as I believe it is a fun addition to the other mechanics of the game.

The time period starts during King George's War in 1744. This is 10 years before the Seven Years' War (aka French and Indian war). It is a brilliant time period to use as the French and British are still very much equals in a significantly wilder interior of the country.

Format

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.
