Free Role Playing Game Supplement Review: FT – Lord Morningstar’s Keep

FT – Lord Morningstar’s Keep is a free role playing game supplement published by Adventures in Filbar. This is one in the FT range of supplements which primarily cover urban areas of different sizes but, in this case, covers a small keep.

This is a sixteen page PDF which lacks bookmarks. One page is the front cover, bearing the Adventures in Filbar logo, around one page has three maps of the keep and around half a page has the heraldic device of Lord Morningstar.

FT - Lord Morningstar's KeepAround two and a half pages provide background for the keep, which was founded by the titular paladin Lord Morningstar and is inhabited by him, his former adventuring companions, his family and various retainers and men-at-arms. The keep itself is in a border region subject to humanoid activity.

The remainder of the supplement describes the keep itself. One map covers the keep’s fortifications, walls and inner ward, along with the various buildings found in it, used to maintain the troops stationed here. The other three maps cover three floors of the manor house, the primary residence of the Morningstars and several other associates.

The PDF is quite short, so bookmarks are not essential but would have been a nice extra. The text maintains a single column format and a number of errors were noted. Most of these were minor spelling or grammatical errors; however, there is a sentence fragment which breaks off as it is about to describe what is in the Morningstars’ vault. The maps are all simple but do the job they are intended to do, showing the location of the various places in he keep.

The Filbar supplements of this type or usually intended for the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and AD&D 2nd Edition systems; however, as no stats are provided for the various non-player characters, the supplement is actually system-agnostic in nature, making it compatible with any suitable system. Similarly, although the keep is located in the Filbar setting, there are no real ties to it, so it can be considered to be setting-neutral and can therefore be dropped into any suitable border location in a fantasy setting. FT – Lord Morningstar’s Keep is a decent enough and easily-usable fortification and it’s free, so click here to download it.
