Nice!

Is this item also in your product list somewhere? I need to catch up on Freeport material...

I have created a page for Heroes of Freeport, from the Green Ronin Blog, with notes on Janica Flamefist (monster slayer), Tovarik Gertensen (witch hunter), and Redjak (rogue).

Yes, I've added links to that page on both the Freeport Errata index page (alphabetical under Pathfinder Short Cuts) and Freeport Library page (under Other Supplements: Pathfinder).

Ditto for the Heroes of Freeport page I just mentioned (under Other Supplements: Systemless).

Crossposting from the Squishy Bits thread about my blog:

I have posted my fragmentary notes on "The Tale of Jumari" to the Past Lives section of the WInds of Freeport website. This was a True20 solo campaign for my wife Erika that ended after just a couple of sessions in 2006; Jumari was later reactivated for my True20 conversion of "Dead Man's Quest" (in 2007).

Although that version of Jumari never got much play, the character stuck with her, and Erika reused the name and much of the character concept for her character in my current "Time of the Tarrasque" Pathfinder campaign.

Just some random thoughts that may make it into full-fledged blog posts eventually:

Whenever I do return to Freeport, I will very likely be trying it with another system--either Fantasy AGE (once the Freeport Companion for that system finally comes out) or D&D 5E. I greatly enjoy Pathfinder, but it's reeeeeaaally crunchy, and I'll probably want a change of pace from it whenever I need a break from "Time of the Tarrasque." Fantasy AGE or 5E would also require far fewer books to run a campaign, especially during play. (Naturally, I'll still need my complete Freeport collection for design and prep work!)

Speaking of 5E books, I spent some time looking through Volo's Guide to Monsters at my FLGS last night. That book hasn't been a top priority for me yet, since I'm only running modules at this point, but I will definitely want to acquire it before I run any original (or converted) adventures of my own. I'll want it for Freeport in particular, because it includes rules for "monstrous" PCs (orcs, goblins, kobolds, etc.), which can all be found in that city. (It also provides stats for at least one more essential monster from Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, which I hope to run in 5E someday after I've mastered the system more.)

I'm also going to want Xanathar's Guide to Everything when it comes out later this year. From the announcement, it sounds like it's going to contain official final versions of a lot of the playtest content that has been featured in "Unearthed Arcana." Regulars readers of my blog should be unsurprised that I'd want to use much of that material if I run a Freeport 5E game.

Finally (for now), I am very much looking forward to getting my copy of the Green Ronin's Book of the Righteous for 5E. (As a backer, I have the PDF already, but for anything of that scope, I find it much easier to read it in print.) I can easily get a column or three out of discussing how that book's gods fit into the World of Freeport, whether I ever run a 5E game there or not.
