Welcome to Freebooters Fate Week here on my little old blog!
Having picked this game up by trading some stuff thought I would give it some love and run a few posts with different things happening, from review of the rules to battle reports!!
So first of all I thought I would do some background to the FF universe!
So we enter the FF world on a tropical island (oh bugger no sun cream). A small part of a world spanning empire! A little slice of paradise, a haven for weary travelers from the old world to the new! A bountiful place where the fishing is good and the locals are friendly (nudge nudge wink wink)…
Most will find themselves on Leonera the main island of a cluster of islands! Once docked at Leonera, they can explore the Harbour and capital city of Puerto Alto! At a time of so much expansion and trade into the new world they need protectors! This is where the Imperial Armada become necessary they patrol the islands and the surrounding waters for trouble, and they do a very good job – truly a good age!!!
Alas problems begin to occur when; a shorter route to the new world is discovered removing the essential need for Puerto Alto! Life becomes harder as the once bountiful riches bypass the islands. Then to compound matters the Gobernador who was hoping for an easy drift into retirement isn’t exactly very good at his job (typical bureaucrat)!
The Imperial Armada struggled to keep control but the pirates gained a huge part of Puerto Alto fully half of the capital belongs to them and they have renamed it Longfall!!!
Then don’t even get started on the assassinations and the Goblin infestation…………..
Tomorrow I will look at the factions
