Re: How are you actually supposed to run this game?

Yeah that was definitely one of my worries with the "map stuff yourself" idea, how much it'd slow the game down. I had them map a dungeon in 30ft chunks once and it really did slow the game down.

Re: How are you actually supposed to run this game?

I was mostly interested in hearing how people approach the game to better inform how I should be doing it. I've been doing largely the same as you two but my main point of confusion was looking at other hexcrawls and methods people use outside of FbL which mostly boils down to restricting the map fr...

How are you actually supposed to run this game?

I'm quite a few sessions deep into FbL and still I don't think I've nailed EXACTLY how I'm supposed to run this game. This is me and my entire group's first time doing a hexcrawl and I've been doing a LOT of work to figure it all out. My current pain points are on stocking hexes and figuring out EXA...

Re: How do you do time management?

I see what you mean by running out of events though I probably won't ROLL per say every week, some weeks might see a plot point coming to fruition (currently the rust brothers the hex over are aware the PCs hold Stanengist and will eventually come knocking) but the big problem is that, in my infinit...

How do you do time management?

My group is currently running on a 1-1 game day to real day system partially for stronghold management and partially cause I had designs of a west marches lite system but after a month of running it like this I think we're gonna switch to a more reasonable system of time skips and "fellowship p...

Hacking parts of The One Ring's Journey mechanic into Forbidden Lands.

Played The One Ring solo mode last night and it was really fun. I particularly found the journey mechanic to be well implemented and was wondering if something similar could be melded into FbL, specifically the variable success rate dictating how many hexes until the next event. I'm sure it could be...

Re: Confused about how to organize Reputation

Alright I've obviously been doing some stuff wrong. Time to go back and retroactively change some reputation.

Confused about how to organize Reputation

I've been running my group for a bit now and they've gotten up to some shit but now I'm realizing that I've been shirking reputation a bit and need to backtrack to get an accurate count and some of the details around it are confusing to me. 1. What's a normal amount of reputation for a group to have...
