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!
The Adventure Game Engine (AGE) is the system that powers Green Ronin's Dragon Age RPG. AGE branded products are fully compatible with Dragon Age, but can be used in many different settings.

Game: A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying
These ENnie Award-winning Quick-Start rules and the adventure Journey to King’s Landing are mean to be your introduction to both the A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying game and to the fantasy world detailed in George R.R. Martin’s best-selling series of novels.
A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying is about Machiavellian court politics, family alliances and enmities, the rise and fall of kingdoms, and the clash of armies, but it is also about honor and duty, family, the responsibilities of leadership, love and loss; tournaments, murders, conspiracies, prophecies, dreams, war, great victories, and terrible defeats. It’s about knights, both false and true... and it’s about dragons.
Welcome to the world of A Song of Ice and Fire, and remember the words of House Stark: “Winter is coming.”
