Unlock the Sinister Secrets of Freeport!

From the moment of Freeport's inception, the subversive cults of terrible and fearsome gods have plotted and connived to find a way to bend the city toward their own sinister goals. From the dreaded Brotherhood of the Yellow Sign to the alien priests of the snake-god Yig, it seems Freeport is infested with these strange and unsettling groups. Whether allied to some dreaded demon prince or serving a bloody ghost who demands his children kill for the love of killing, the cults of Freeport are a constant and dangerous threat, forces of such evil they nearly defy description. Most Freeporters may wonder what villainy is afoot, but many have learned to not look too closely, for sometimes it's better not to know what malfeasance brews in their neighbor's home ... or beneath their very feet.

Cults of Freeport peels back the swashbuckling facade of this infamous city to take an unflinching look at some of the most disturbing groups that call this city home. Inside this blistering sourcebook, you'll find eight lavishly detailed cults, including a detailed description of the cult's goals, motivations, tactics, and their impact on the city. In addition, each entry includes an overview of its membership, its recruitment policies, and tons of plot frameworks to help you feature these groups in adventures of your own design. Inside this sourcebook, you'll find details on all of the following cults:

  • The Brotherhood of the Yellow Sign: A foul group of madmen devoted to the horrific Unspeakable One.
  • The Priesthood of Yig: The ancient religion of the lost Valossan Empire that seeks to find its place in a world dominated by lesser races.
  • The Lost Souls of Yarash: Bloodthirsty pirates that butcher innocents to glorify their bloody-handed god.
  • The Esoteric Order of Starry Wisdom: A hidden cabal of wizards behind Freeport's Wizards' Guild who search for the power contained within the elusive Azoth Stone.
  • Scions of the Destroyer: A filthy cult of demon-worshippers, they strive to release Abaddon from the Bottomless Pit and usher in the final age of the world.
  • The Charnel Children: A ghoulish pack of cannibal children led by a muttering lunatic devoted to the bestial Charnel God.
  • The Society of the Velvet Whip: Deviants dedicated to the exploration of pleasure and pain, they infest Freeport and erode its morality with their excess.
  • The Obsidian Brotherhood: A strange cell of killers and scholars united in their thirst for the knowledge contained within the fragments of a being known only as the Wanderer.

Cults of Freeport follows the pattern established in The Pirate's Guide to Freeport in that it dispenses with game statistics to ensure this sourcebook useful no matter what campaign setting you use or game system you play. The Brotherhood of the Yellow Sign was just the beginning. Learn the unspeakable truth about Freeport's corruption in Cults of Freeport!

A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying Cover Image

Game: A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying

Free Start: Quickstart PDF

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.”

This, as its title implies, is a sourcebook focusing the Cthuloid aspects of the Freeport setting, which have, of course, been there ever since the original adventure trilogy. We get eight evil cults here, any of which could be easily transported to any [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
