Madness in Freeport: A Classic Freeport Adventure for Shadow of the Demon Lord

Madness in Freeport: A Master Adventure for FreeportMadness in Freeport concludes The Freeport Trilogy in this thrilling adventure set in the grand City of Adventure. The unveiling of Milton’s Folly draws near, and the player characters must uncover its sinister secrets before time runs out. This time they face more than back alley toughs and mindless undead, though. Sea Lord Drac has his eyes on the PCs, and they may not survive his malefic attentions.

Although this adventure completes the story that began in Death in Freeport, you can run this adventure as a standalone scenario, using it to introduce Freeport to master characters.

We’re bringing the Freeport Companion to Shadow of the Demon Lord!

Orcs, pirates, the Unspeakable One, ancient empires, the Yellow Sign, insidious cults: Freeport has all these and so much more. In a few weeks, I’m launching a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of the Shadow of the Demon Lord Freeport Companion, a 128-page, full color sourcebook that gives you everything you need to bring the City of Adventure to the world of the Demon Lord. As with the Shadow campaign almost two years ago, I already have the book written and ready to move into the editing and art direction phases. While the text is in hand, the production costs for a book this size are more than I have on hand, so I’m asking you for help. To get this book through production, I need $10,000. This amount will cover editing, art, and layout, ensuring the book meets the high standards to which we hold every release.

Backers of the Freeport Companion will have four pledge options: to get the PDF, the PDF and printed book, the PDF and printed book along with all stretch goals, or the PDF of the book and all the stretch goals. Retailers can also back this campaign and will get ten copies of the rulebook.

What does the Freeport Companion contain?

  • Details on the various ancestries found in Freeport as well as rules for playing undines and serpent people
  • New expert and master paths, such as the courtier, mariner, and mystic navigator
  • A selection of new spells including saltburst, summon fleshraker, and inscribe the Yellow Sign
  • New siege weapons, special substances, and ships
  • Rules for voyages, ship-to-ship combat, and underwater adventuring
  • New relics such as Revenge and the Fountain of Fortune
  • Tons of characters to help you bring the city to life
  • A bestiary loaded with strange creatures such as the accursed hand, deep one, and fire specter
  • A massive adventure to help you explore Freeport and kick off your Freeport campaign!

Kickstarter Stretch Goals

The first Freeport Companion stretch goal unlocks when we hit $20,000, and stretch goal backers will all get PDFs of the original Freeport Trilogy for use with Shadow of the Demon Lord and updated with all new art. Other stretch goals will include Beyond the World’s Edge, a supplement that explores new lands and civilizations, Tales of the Pirate Isles, a trilogy of nautical themed adventures, and, the Demon Lord’s Companion 2, a book that will add even more options to the game.

Shipping the Freeport Companion

This time around, we’ll be shipping printed rewards to international backers directly from the printer, which saves us all loads and loads of money. US backers should receive their copies 1-3 weeks after shipping, while international backers should receive their copies 3-7 weeks after shipping. Easy peasy. Please note that delivery estimates are for PDF of the Shadow of the Demon Lord Freeport Companion; add shipping time to the delivery dates for printed materials. Similarly, any products unlocked in the stretch goals will be delivered when as they are ready.

When’s the Kickstarter launch?

We’re launching the Kickstarter on March 1st, and it will wrap up on March 18th.

Other Ways to Help Our Kickstarter Campaign

Even if you can’t back the campaign, you can still help by spreading the word, sharing updates, and singing the game’s praises. Anything you can do to get out the word will not only make this project a reality, but also help us continue to produce dark and sinister supplements and games. Thanks in advance for your help and I hope you join us on March 1st.

Slaver's Lash: A Starting Adventure for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPGSlaver’s Lash: A Starting Adventure

The emperor’s death and the subsequent collapse of the Empire loosed rampaging bands of orcs into the Empire’s provinces. While many of these orcs seek the freedom long denied to them, others see opportunity for vengeance, wealth, and power. In this adventure, a band of orc slavers has moved into the Northern Reach, plundering frontier towns for slaves to sell or use for sport. When the adventure opens, the characters are among the captives, marching toward a life in chains. The adventure ends when the characters escape captivity and reach one of the few outposts of civilization on the frontier.

The Slaver’s Lash is an adventure for starting characters for Shadow of the Demon Lord RPG. Like others of its kind, it helps you and your players determine the group’s origin story, how they come together and how they will develop their stories over time. The characters can know each other before the adventure begins, but it’s better if they don’t.
