Freeport using 5E

Postby timemrick » Sat Sep 16, 2017 2:48 am

In anticipation of the column that I'm writing about using The Book of the Righteous with Freeport, I've decided to start a new thread here to pull together my other thoughts on running Freeport with D&D Fifth Edition. (This way, my future posts about the subject won't get lost in the endless tangential postscripts to my "Winds of Freeport" campaign thread. :lol: )

I've written a number of older columns for my "Studded Plate" blog about combining Freeport and 5E, and intend to write a good deal more, in the hopes that someday I will get to use this material in a future campaign. Here is the list to date:

I'll update that list as I add more.

That's really going to help 5th Edition fans that like Freeport.

You are like the Michael Knight of Freeport. ;)

That's a very...unusual...compliment, but as a child of the '80s, I can appreciate it as it was meant. :lol:

Hey, Tim...do have any insight as to whether or not Green Ronin will publish a 5E Freeport Companion?

This is from the Ronin Army forums from May 2017, in response to my and another member's queries:
Fildrigar wrote:Because we recently did several giant Pathfinder products with Freeport, we wanted to hold off on a D&D 5e version. ( And keep our Freeport line focussed on Pathfinder. ) We do reevaluate these types of decisions every year at the summit.

The summit he refers to is Green Ronin's annual staff meeting/retreat, where (among other things) they hash out plans for the coming year's new releases. This year's summit was just this past weekend, but it will be some time yet before they go public with any decisions they made there. So even if Harrimast smiles upon us and GR decided to do a 5E Freeport Companion for 2018, I wouldn't expect any announcements about it for a few months, at least (possibly in Chris Pramas's annual "state of the Ronin" letter in January).

Also, one of the Kickstarter rewards for the Pathfinder Freeport book was a Fantasy AGE Freeport Companion. I'm guessing that's been delayed in part due to the same concerns Fildrigar mentioned. I'd expect to see that before a 5E book, just because AGE is their in-house system, and they're still promoting and expanding it pretty actively (Blue Rose earlier this year, Fantasy AGE Companion later this year, and and Modern AGE and 1-2 licensed settings next year).

This just went up on the blog, so I'll add the link to the list:

The Book of the Righteous and the World of Freeport: Put even more Green Ronin goodness into your Freeport game! Using the gods and churches detailed in The Book of the Righteous can make the City of Adventure an even richer setting than it already is.
