Village Background: RoakeThis week, Raging Swan Press is proud to announce the release of Village Backdrop: Roake a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible GM’s RESOURCE by Ben Kent.

Set along the mouth of the river Saran, Roake is a pleasant, prosperous village, famed for the animal husbandry talents of Liaka Frost, a local ranger. Wealthy visitors frequent the village, coming to either purchase her tamed beasts or visit their estates dotted throughout the surrounding area. Adventurers also regularly pass through the village, stopping at the Prince & Pauper to rest their weary legs and quench their thirst.

Behind its above average prosperity, however, Roake conceals a troubled past that yet hangs over the village. As the villagers’ decade-old deception begins to wear thin, the village youth have begun to question their true origins, much to the dismay of their parents…

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 PC’s home, Village Backdrop present the details so the busy GM can focus on crafting exciting, compelling adventures.

This product is a Dual Format PDF. The downloadable ZIP file contains two versions, one optimised for printing and use on a normal computer and one optimised for use on a mobile device such as an iPad.

For free samples, visit ragingswan.com/roake.

And don’t forget, Village Backdrop: Roake is a Dual Format PDF and is included in Raging Swan’s Free PDFs promotion.

You can buy this product from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
