Freeport! Pirates Inside!

Pirates Guide to FreeportTwo weeks ago, I finally was able to dig into my gaming books and pull out a setting that I’ve been dying to play for ages! Freeport by Green Ronin.

For those of you that are brand new to role-play lingo, a setting is where a game is, well, set! While a system is the mechanics behind the role-playing game itself.  For example, Dungeons and Dragons and Savage Worlds are a setting because each one has rules on how the game is played.  Yet Eberron is a setting for a D&D campaign and Necessary Evil would be a Savage Worlds setting.  The Freeport setting was made to support a number of different systems and while I do have the d20 Companion, I’ve chosen to play it with Savage Worlds.

There are three PCs (player characters) in this campaign:

Masego, Child of Rathma: He wasn’t always known as Masego, he used to live in a small village with lush pastures near the big forests.  One fateful day the boy known as Allastar was helping skin a deer he had caught with his father.  While he skinned, he heard screaming coming from his village and horror met his eyes.  The undead had infested the village and killed and ate his mother and father before his very eyes.  He hid up in a loft where the undead couldn’t reach him until a blind woman came and vanquished the monsters.  He was given a choice by the woman, be escorted to an orphanage or take vengeance upon those that had wronged him.

Allastar went with the woman and spent many long years learning the ways of the Cult of Rathma.  Finally one day he passed the rite of passage and his eyes were gouged out making him blind.  He gave up his name and was blessed into the order as Masego the blessed.  The Cult of Rathma then sent him on a quest to explore the world and develop his other senses to further his teachings to combat the undead.
