Item description for Cults Of Freeport: A Freeport Sourcebook by Robert J. Schwalb...
On the surface, Freeport is a pirate city gone legit, but in reality it is still a place of terrible secrets, foul plots and dreadful gods. Cults of Freeport peels back the facade of the City of Adventure to take an unflinching look at its most disturbing denizens. This sourcebook describles a dozen despicable cults in lavish detail, from their goals and motivations to their tactics and impact on the city. In addition, each entry includes an overview of cult's membership and recruitment policies, as well as a myriad of plot frameworks to help you feature these groups in adventures of your own design. As with The Pirate's Guide to Freeport, Cults of Freeport does not include game statistics of any kind, so you can use it with the RPG of your choice. The Brotherhood of the Yellow Sign was just the beginning. Learn the unspeakable truth about the city's corruption in Cults of Freeport!

Underwhelming Pirates Apr 20, 2008
I'm afraid that this is the first product in the Freeport line that was underwhelming to me. Promising a look at the dark underside of the city through it's strange cults the book instead offers eight cults that follow the most basic stereotypes of any fantasy campaign. There's a berserker cult, a cannibal cult, an S/M fetish cult and so forth. The best cults are those that tie to the setting directly (the Serpent People cult of Yig, the horrors of the Unspeakable One, the God of Evil Pirates) but they are not enough to lift up this product's rating.
I hope future releases push the Freeport setting more interestingly than this book.
