    Death in Freeport

    On the surface Freeport is a pirate city gone legit, but in reality it is still a place of terrible secrets, foul plots, and dreadful gods.

    This is a heavily house ruled 3.5 game set in the City of Freeport. Specific house rules, adjustments to core classes, and possible player source materials are listed below. There are a lot of mechanical options open to players but I try to keep the focus on story and action instead of mechanics during the game.

    In general I am looking for players interested in the possibilities of the campaign. If the house rules are not to your liking then this is probably not a campaign for you as I am not interested in arguing about the merits of the game rules.

    I try and post 1/weekday when I am not on vacation. I do not expect anybody to post on weekends.

    Once the game starts I will be requiring at least one post a week day that I am in town from all PCs. Failure to post for a while without advance notice in the OOC thread will likely result in messy character death at the hands of a cutthroat thug.

    I am looking for a bunch of players who can post regularly during weekdays.

    Players must come up with some reason Brother Egil will ask them for help.

    If you are interested please post here indicating your interest, possible character concept, and whether you have played or read the module before.

    Recruiting is currently closed.

    Freeport

    Freeport

    The city-state of Freeport is a bustling cosmopolitan center of trade. Located on an easily defensible isle in the Serpentís Teeth chain of islands, Freeport is an important center of maritime commerce in the world. Once known only as a pirate haven, the city grew over time and its residents became a major naval power under the command of the resident Sea Lords two-hundred years ago. The city has become an official nation state of its own with alliances and trade relations with the major powers of the world today. Ruled by the Sea Lord Milton Drac and the Council of Captains, Freeport has recently turned its back on many allies as the continental empire is torn apart by religious schisms and civil war. Freeportís large fleet of privateers and welcoming policy of few questions for sea captains bearing goods to sell leads many to say that the pirate roots of Freeport are not buried deep in the past but lie just under the surface today.

    Since the assassination of the former Sea Lord and his own ascension to power Milton Drac has been engaged with two domestic projects for the last ten years. He constantly works to solidify his hold on power by attempting to gain control of the fractious Council of Captains. He also pushes forward his one great public works project, the construction of a massive lighthouse for the cityís harbor. The Council governs the day to day affairs of the city while the lighthouse is designed to both serve the harbor and to act as a monument to his reign as Sea Lord. Drac has diverted public funds and poured them into these efforts of his at the cost of other spending priorities of the city-state.

    While Lord Drac crows that the lighthouse will increase the ease and safety of maritime navigation to the harbor thus bringing greater prosperity to all of Freeport, many call the project ďMiltonís FollyĒ. His detractors consider it a boondoggle for the Sea Lordís favored agents whose only good aspect is that it will soon be completed and no longer a massive drain on the cityís resources.

    Services in the city have degenerated under Lord Dracís rule. The garrison has shrunk and is largely confined to the Old City. The docks are policed haphazardly, if at all. Crime has skyrocketed, but as long as it remains in the shadows the Council is content to pretend that it does not exist as they focus on their internal struggles and personal affairs.

    Brother Egil, a scholar from the Athenaeum chapterhouse in Freeport, wrote you a letter asking you to meet with him during these turbulent times. He needs your help.

    House Rules

    We Don't Need No Stinking Healers: 4e style healing surges - 6+con bonus times a day can use a healing surge to heal self of 1/4 round down of max hp in damage. All healing magic uses a healing surge. Once per combat can spend a standard action to use a healing surge.

    More Death Buffer: Arcana Unearthed/Iron Heroes style extended disabled/dying and fort saves for negative hp instead of death at -10

    Built Ford Tough: no massive damage save

    Mostly dead: instant death effects take you to dying status, not dead.

    Shirts or Skins: natural armor overlaps with regular armor instead of stacking

    Hack, Hack, Hack: max hp at first level, half HD average round up for other levels

    Mix and Match: No favored class, multiclass freely without xp penalty. Fractional BAB and save advancements for multiclass characters. Fractional saves give you levels in good or bad save progression (No starting over for another 2.5 with 1st level good saves). Caster level equals character level.

    Feats are Easy: No ability score prerequisites for feats

    I Can do Anything: No cross-class skills, everything is a class skill for everybody. Only need a story explanation for how acquired.

    We Don’t Need No Stinking Skill Rolls: Don’t expect many skill rolls, particularly for social actions. Most things I see your score and character development (concept, history, characterization, and mechanical choices) and adjudicate based on that, not rolls.

    What’s That Say: Decipher script does not exist as a skill

    It’s a Trap: Anybody can search for traps regardless of DC

    Magic is Easy: No ability score prerequisite for max spell level.

    Dabblers Have Power: Caster level equals character level.

    Magic Stacks: multiclassing spell caster spell slots and spells known stack Arcana Unearthed style.

    Healing is Easy: All core spellcasting classes get healing type spells on their spell list and at the lowest level it is available to the other core classes.

    Crafting is Easy: Crafting magic items does not cost xp

    Magic’s Expensive: xp spells cost extra gold for component instead of xp

    Feel the Power: levels are awarded when I say so, individual xp is not given to players.

    Let’s Go: teleport is shorter range (1 mile)

    Pikachu, I Choose You: Summoned celestial and fiendish smite works as a lesser constant smite against targeted aligned creatures, not a powerful 1/day thing.

    Some core spells not allowed (searing light I’m talking about you, domains using it will be modified upon request, also most anything with sonic damage).

    Beyond Good and Evil: Alignment is only for divine champions, undead, and outsiders, everyone else is neutral. Alignments are primal forces, not moralities. Class alignment restrictions do not apply other than as social expectations.

    Specific Beasts: shape shifting and summoning requires a focus of the thing being summoned or shape assumed (usually a bone).

    Did it Work?: Players are to post combat rolls using invisible castle with their character names. DM handles all other rolling. Post appropriate character mechanics and numbers in OOC portion of IC posts with spoiler tags.

    Skilled: Feats every level instead of every three. I think feats are fun and add to characters and want PCs to have more.

    No Wasted Learning: If you multiclass into a class that grants a bonus feat you already have you instead gain a related feat. For instance a character with Tracking who later becomes a ranger could gain Skill Focus Survival to boost his tracking instead of being out a feat compared to a character that waited to learn tracking. Taking a class that provides abilities you are good at should make you better at those abilities instead of no increased benefit.

    First level benefits are for the best of your classes. So the max hp and 4x skillpoints for first level are whatever your best class is. It doesn't matter if you go sorcerer 1 then rogue 1 or rogue 1 then sorcerer 1 both second level characters will look the same mechanically.

    Smarts!: Int skill bonuses are retroactive. If somebody increases their int permanently through level advancement they get the extra skill points and can learn a new language. Skill increases must still make sense for the character from a story perspective and can be saved until appropriate opportunities for skill development.

    I got better: heal works like treat injury from d20 modern, but the treat injury application can be done once per encounter resulting in wounds and cures 1d4 for every 5 points above DC 10 on the heal check.

    Falling is Dangerous: falling damage accelerates, it is 1d6 for each ten feet fallen, for each set of 10'. Still 20d6 max

    So:
    10=1d6
    20=3d6
    30=6d6
    40=10d6
    50=15d6
    60=20d6

    Poisons are Deadly: successful saves on poisons result in half damage

    Beasts are Dangerous: iterative attacks work with natural weapons

    Red in Tooth and claw: claws do slashing, bite does piercing.

    Core Class Changes

    Bard:

    Increase HD to d8.

    Cleric:

    Spontaneous divine caster variant from Unearthed Arcana

    Clerics can choose any domains, regardless of religion or god as long as appropriate for the character.

    Clerics can be godless, worship non-divine beings (dragons, demons, etc.), worship pantheons, or worship specific gods.

    Clerics do not get turn or rebuke undead as a class ability. Turn undead is an optional alternate domain power for the good domain and rebuke undead is an optional alternate domain power for the evil domain. The sun domainís power is turning undead unless another domain power grants them the turn undead ability in which case the sun domain remains unchanged.

    Druid:

    Spontaneous divine caster variant from Unearthed Arcana

    Druids do not automatically know summon natureís ally spells or get companions

    Druids gain a domain, which can be but need not be nature summoning. Nature summoning domainís power is animal companion.

    Druid shifting from PH II is an option but costs druids their domain power and appearances are limited to a single form that shares a visual characteristic distinct to the druid.

    Monk:

    No multiclass restrictions

    Paladins:

    Paladins can be spell less variants from Complete Warrior, trade spellcasting for bonus feats, or convert prepared spellcasting to spontaneous divine casting knowing 1 spell per spell casting level. No prepared Spell casting.

    Option to have smite evil work continuously but not be a flat damage bonus against evil creatures. Note Beyond Good and Evil Above, casting [EVIL] spells counts as evil action for falling, otherwise good to go. Code is a social code expected of paladins and they are socially expected to act good.

    No multiclass restrictions.

    Rangers:

    Increase HD to d10

    Rangers can be spell less variants from Complete Warrior or Wildscapes, trade spellcasting for bonus feats, or can convert spells to spontaneous divine casting knowing 1 spell per spell casting level. No prepared spell casting.

    No animal companion, although a feat would allow one.

    Rogues:

    HD increase to d8

    Trapsense = elf style auto trap check

    Sorcerers:

    Increase HD to d6

    Gain 1 free spell slot level they can use per day per sorcerer level. These spell slot levels can be combined to power higher level spells or power metamagics (subject to normal adjusted maximum level spell slot).

    Familiar requires a feat or spell or reducing class HD to d4. No xp loss for familiar death.

    Wizards:

    Increase HD to d6

    Wizards can learn spells from any items they have crafting feats to create, not just scrolls

    Wizards can prepare spells without spellbooks. Doing so increases the spell slot required by 1 level.

    Familiar requires a feat or spell or reducing class HD to d4. No xp loss for familiar death.

    Domain wizard variant from Unearthed Arcana available at cost of reducing d6 HD to d4.

    Races

    Races that do not have common as their primary language do not speak common as a free language. PCs must spend a skill point to speak common if their race does not start with it.

    Many monster and race book supplements allowed (I donít have Savage Species or any WotC Races of Books though).

    No Half Races: Half elves and half orcs are distinct elf and orc subraces with the core half race mechanics. Half templates exist but do not come about through hybridization. Races are essentially species.

    Orcs are Goblins: Orcs are subtype goblinoid and orcish is just a dialect of goblin

    Elves are Fey: Elves are humanoids with the subtype fey. Elvish is a dialect of sylvan

    Gnomes are Fey: Gnomes are humanoids with the subtype fey. Gnomish is a dialect of sylvan

    Giants are People Too: Giants are a humanoid subtype that use giant type traits (can be affected by "person" spells, etc.)

    Medusae are People Too: Monstrous humanoids are a humanoid subtype that use monstrous humanoid type traits (can be affected by "person" spells, etc.).

    Trolls are Trolls: Trolls all also have the troll subtype regardless of whether they are also giants or monstrous humanoid subtypes.

    Dwarves are Giants: dwarves are subtype giants. Dwarvish is a dialect of giant.

    Feats

    A few modified core feats and a few other ones I created

    Dodging is Simple: Dodge feat = flat +1 dodge bonus

    Hanging Tough: Toughness turns into Improved Toughness feat (from Complete Warrior, +1 hp/level) at third level.

    Reflexive Dodge: Adds base reflex save from class to Dex AC bonus.

    Craft Trinket: Allows Crafting of any magic item up to 2,500 gp value

    Recharge Magic: Replaces normal spell slots with a modified version of UA recharge magic (no bonus spells for casting attribute, fixed recharge times, improved spontaneous recharge rate applies to all spells).

    Domain magic: Add one domain as bonus spells known.

    Sources

    I have over 100 d20 books and pdfs so ask if there is something you want to use, I might have it. The answer will be either no, yes with changes, or yes. Since I am starting at 1st level I am more likely to allow weird classes or races and see how they progress.

    Full list of RPG sourcebooks

    The lists below I haven't updated in a little while but they are grouped by categories

    Sources I have for further possible class options I will consider but have to review first if you want stuff from them, and I might alter stuff:

    I don't have a lot of time right now, but I wanted to post expressing my interest in this game. I don't know all that much about Freeport, although I like what I do know and I'd be willing to learn what I don't. I also have no prior experience with this module.

    Later today, when I have some free time, I'd like to think up a character concept or two and throw my hat into the ring.

    Hmm! I am intrigued! I've really enjoyed Wildwood, and if you'll consider someone who's already in another of your games, I'd like to submit for this one too.

    My preliminary idea so far is either a two bit alley rat sort of character, living in the uneasy crevices between law and organized crime in the harbor of Freeport...perhaps with a nautical background though. Arrived as crew on a ship, perhaps...or escaped from a crew he was pressed into...

    That, or a refugee from the dissolving empire outside the city...a war orphan, seeking what shelter Freeport can offer.

    As for why the character would be contacted...it might help if I knew what the Athenaeum was, so I could work it into a backstory. Starting level might help too when designing a background, so I know how long the character's been 'in business' as it were.

    Character Creation

    1st level and default 32 point buy.

    Optional starting point buy and LA variations:

    Option two 40 point buy: Can increase point buy to 40 if restrict class options to NPC classes only.

    Option three 32 point buy alternative: LA +1 race restricted to NPC classes.

    Option four 24 point buy: LA +2 race restricted to NPC classes. LA +1. Alternatively can take gestalt option with one class required to be an NPC class.

    Option Five 16 point buy: Can take an LA +3 race restricted to NPC classes. LA +2 race. LA +1 race Gestalt with NPC class. Or Gestalt.

    Option six 8 point buy: LA +4 restricted to NPC class. LA +3. LA +2 Gestalt with NPC class. LA +1 Gestalt.

    100 gp for starting equip regardless of class

    See house rules, and class and race options and modifications below.

    Once the game starts I will be requiring at least one post a week day that I am in town from all PCs. Failure to post for a while without advance notice in the OOC thread will likely result in messy character death at the jaws of a predator.
