The original Death in Freeport is 20 years old and was the first adventure published under the new Open Game License. We’re talking D&D 3e.
There have been many editions along the way, tweaks, changes and updates which now take us to the full-colour 20th Anniversary Edition.
The supplement is an adventure set in the swashbuckling (and sometimes sinister) city of Freeport. This edition comes with three unique backgrounds (Privateer, Historian and Street Knife) and four new sub-classes. Let’s take a look at those sub-classes;
- Valor Domain: A cleric domain to stoke bravery, cast off fear, and serve as a beacon of courage to your allies.
- Buccaneer: A martial archetype for sea-faring fighters who rely on striking fear into the hearts of their foes, and using that fear to make themselves all the more deadly!
- Alley-rat: A rogue archetype that rules the streets and alleyways, turning terrain into deadly traps and even developing Lair Actions for your turf!
- Serpentkin: A sorcerous origin drawing upon the ophidian power well known to long-time fans of Freeport, summoning spirits and forces with a serpentine bite.
The original adventure won in the very first ENnies and picked up the Origins Award for Best RPG Adventure too. It is written by Chris Pramas who also designed Fantasy AGE, Warhammer FRP 2e and AD&D’s Guide to Hell.
