Set Sail for Adventure!
If Freeport is known for anything, it's pirates. Sure,
the city has a history of attracting criminal groups,
corrupt merchants, and politiciansâ€”to say nothing of
subversive cults dedicated to insane and dreadful
godsâ€”but it's the pirates who infest the city and
prowl the Serpent's Teeth that give the City of Adventure
its dubious reputation. From its first founding as a haven
for buccaneers and cutthroats, established on the pirate's
code to attain an uneasy peace between voyages, Freeport
has evolved from a filthy little town to a sprawling city
of thousands. Yet in that time, pirates remain the most
common and most popular of its citizens.
Buccaneers of Freeport returns to Freeport's
roots and examines the colorful and disturbing rogues that
roam the seas around the City of Adventure. Describing
eight pirates, many new, some infamous, in lavish detail,
each entry explores the rogue's history, his or her goals
and agendas, while hinting at the curse that keeps them at
sea and the treasures they guard. In addition, the pirate's
key crewmen receive extensive attention, presenting them
in all their cunning and brutality to breathe life into
the thrill-seeking corsairs. Finally, the pirate ship,
allies, and enemies round out the chapter, culminating
with a campaign framework to help you build adventures
centered on these various characters.
The buccaneers described in this sourcebook include:
- Three Sheets Kimbal: An adventurous and courageous
corsair famed for his curious relationship with Lady Luck.
- Scarbelly: The dread orc captain of the Bloody
Vengeance, despised and feared by all for his
brutality and viciousness.
- Alfhild: A renegade warrior-maiden turned pirate to
escape an arranged marriage and the duties of her homeland.
- Flynn the Quick: An ambitious privateer that seeks
redemption by wiping out piracy in all its forms.
- Get o' Yarash: A disturbing ship filled with crude and
violent mutants and exiles dedicated to the bloodthirsty
- Aesha AlgosiÃ©l: A beautiful but cruel elf
maiden who scours the seas for lost relics of occult power.
- Xian-Lei: Driven by vengeance and saddled with a
dreadful curse, Xian-Lei prowls the seas waging war on
those he blames for the death of his order.
- Scevola Hest: Cursed to sail the seas for all time on
the ghostly vessel named the Black Contessa, Hest
and his spectral crew strike against any they please.
