***** (based on 1 rating)
Facebook Twitter Email

The siege grinds on, and winter maintains its icy grip. It is 1776.

Welcome to Boston.

While the world watches, and both sides draw up the plans of war, others lurk in the shadows, prowling forgotten tunnels, and battling heroes. Here in one of the oldest cities in the Colonies, an ancient enemy sows the seeds of strife, and a much larger battle is about to begin. While Colonists cry for freedom and Loyalists struggle to reconcile with England, dark enemies gnaw and plague the unsuspecting.

Flames of Freedom: Boston Besieged, is the first volume in an epic campaign for Colonial Gothic. In this book you will find our guide to the great city of Boston, and a ready-to-play adventure which sets the stage for the entire Revolution. Secret plots, secret cults, and mysteries abound, as you explore the city of Boston during the last days of the siege. You are at the start of the revolution and will be caught up in a series of events that will take you from one end of the colonies to the other. That is if you survive Boston first.

Written by Graeme Davis and Richard Iorio II.

A Truly Momentous Start to a Campaign!


Boston Besieged is a combination release for Colonial Gothic. Part of the book contains a sourcebook for Boston during the Boston Siege of the Revolutionary War. The remainder of the book is dedicated to the Boston Besieged adventure, the first part to the Flames of Freedom campaign. Boston Besieged takes historical events surrounding the Revolutionary War and gives them a Colonial Gothic twist by allowing the heroes to not only become a part of the events, but the reason the events were possible. This adventure really allows the players to get fully absorbed into a slice of history that was a major turning point for America.

Boston Besieged is not only a fantastically written adventure module, it is a 360-degree look at one part of the Revolutionary War and how Colonial Gothic can become (or is) a part of that history and possibly affect its outcome.


Boston Besieged is an absolutely epic adventure to an even more epic campaign. Not that the size is epic, or the combat is epic, but what the heroes are doing is epic in nature. Boston Besieged takes actual historic events (or at least speculative events) and gives them a Colonial Gothic twist filled with fantasy and horror. Boston Besieged is a perfect example of how to make Alternate History truly shine.


Publication Quality: 10 out of 10
Rogue Games’ publications always seem to follow high-quality layouts and presentations with great supporting illustrations. Boston Besieged is beautifully laid-out and its presentation is superb. The adventure flows wonderfully from beginning to end and I never had to flip back to a previous page. The illustrations are fantastic, especially the map of Boston in 1775. Even the cover looks great in a simple sort of way.

Storyline: 10 out of 10
This is one of the best storylines I’ve ever read. Although considering that it takes place during an actual historical event and places the heroes within its midst, affecting the outcome. The siege of Boston during the Revolutionary War really comes to life with wonderful Colonial Gothic twists and turns that should provide for hours of superb game-play.

Desire to Play:10 out of 10
Adventures within Colonial Gothic can take many different directions from alternate looks at historical events to simple adventures through the thirteen colonies. Being able to go toe-to-toe with some of the largest figures in history is something miraculous. To become a part of the Revolutionary War, this is what Colonial Gothic is about. All player’s should become a part of this campaign and create their own little mark upon the world and further the patriotic effort.

Overall: 10 out of 10
Boston Besieged is a definite must have for all players and GMs. Players will find an abundance of usable information considering background, connections, allies and characteristics that can be applied to their player character within the sourcebook section. GMs will find a historical look at Boston that they may not have considered with the start to an epic campaign. Rogue Games really spend their time making this one perfect. Gift Certificates
