Free Role Playing Game Supplement Review: FT – Barony of Civille

FT – Barony of Civille is a free role playing game supplement published by Adventures in Filbar. This is a supplement in the FT range which primarily describe urban areas. Despite the supplement’s name, this simply describes a port city, not a larger area. Civille is a base of operations and important area for the FD range of supplements. This is primarily aimed at the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and AD&D 2nd Edition game systems.

This is a twenty-one page PDF which lacks bookmarks. One page is the front cover which features the Adventures in Filbar logo and one page has a labelled map of the city. The map would appear to have been created in some type of graphics program.

FT - Barony of CivilleThe remainder of the supplement describes the city. It begins with a one page overview of Civille and how it has undergone significant growth in the past century. The rest describes fifty locations in the city, which would appear to be every place on the map.

Each location has the name or use of the place in question, whether this be a business, shop, private residence or more functional building, followed by the name of the primary NPC who can be found there. There follows a description of the location, the major NPC and what activities are done or types of goods can be purchased.

The PDF lacks bookmarks and, although they aren’t really essential for one of this length, they would have been appreciated. The text maintains a standard single column with a border and a number of errors, primarily grammatical, were noticed. The map itself is functional but not spectacular.

Civille is rather more tied to the Filbar setting than many of the locations in the FT series but this is due to its importance as a trade hub for the Caravan Masters, an important trading organisation in the Filbar setting. As a result, the Caravan Masters are frequently mentioned at multiple different locations. Even so, with a bit of tweaking, it could be used as a port city in another setting.

Even though the supplement is stated as being for the AD&D system, it lacks any game stats. Therefore it can easily be used with other systems.

FT – Barony of Civille lacks a bit of polish and it’s a bit less flexible than some in the range, but it’s still decent enough and it can be found for free by clicking here.
