Village Backdrop: Refuge


Brand: Raging Swan Press

PDF / Pathfinder

A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GM's Resource by Greg Marks

An uncharted atoll, the secret isle of Refuge is a haven for pirates and cutthroats. Its laws are few: pay your due to the Buccaneer King, every Captain gets one vote and do not cheat or kill your fellow pirates. Without witnesses, that last one is more of a guideline. Life here is short, brutal and filled with golden opportunity for those willing to seize it at the point of a sword. While discontent at the Buccaneer King's rule grows in the hearts of the other captains, rumours swirl of spies working for the pirates' many victims lurking on the atoll. And finally something terrible is stalking and killing drunken pirates and the children of the Maze. Surely, bloody war and ruin will soon be visited upon Refuge.

Village Backdrops are short, richly detailed supplements that each present a single village ready to insert into almost any home campaign. Perfect for use as a waystop on the road to adventure, as an adventure site themselves or as a PC's home, Village Backdrop present the details so the busy GM can focus on crafting exciting, compelling adventures.
