Forts & Frontiers: Free RPG Day 2019: The Feast of the Dead


A Wendat sachem and his trading party escort a Jesuit priest from Trois-Rivières to their remote village on the shores of Lake Karegnondi. They do this to maintain favorable trading conditions with the French, but many of the Wendat resent their presence and, especially, their impact on tradition. Together they face the perils of Wendake—from wild rivers to hungry predators to a darkness nearly as old as Ataensic herself. Along the way the Wendat and priest find they have more in common than they thought, but will this be enough to stay the wrath of those who believe that the French have changed the old ways forever?

Forts & Frontiers is a historical roleplaying game based on Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition (5e). It allows GMs and players to experience 17th and 18th century North America from the diverse and often conflicting perspectives of the people of the time: British, French, and other European settlers; Wendat, Haudenosaunee, and other Nadouek nations; those striving to create new ways of life; and those striving to preserve the existing ways.

This adventure is set in 17th century Wendake (modern-day Ontario). It is a quickstart introduction to the key concepts and new rules of Forts & Frontiers. As such, it goes into much more detail than subsequent adventures will. This is done to provide GMs new to the system and setting a clear idea of how to run a Forts & Frontiers adventure.

Forts & Frontiers is about exploration, not expertise. We are by no means experts on the period. You don't need to be either. In fact, everything you need to know can be found in this adventure. An explanation of new rules, pre-generated characters complete with backstories, historical background, maps and illustrations, and much more—it's all here.

So, prepare to go back in time for the adventure of a lifetime as two cultures collide against the breathtaking backdrop of 17th century Wendake.

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.
