Re: Forbidden Lands RPG facebook group closing down.

Fenhorn:The two names in the Swedish version are Ravland  (Ravn is an old norse word for Raven) and det glömda landet ( meaning 'the forgotten land'.) Very cool, thanks! Det  glömda landet sounds cool to my english ears even though I'm definitely mispronouncing it... Another question then... Why a ...

Re: Forbidden Lands RPG facebook group closing down.

The English name actually came first and was kind of given, while there was a lot of discussion concerning the Swedish one. The apparently obvious translation of ”forbidden” to ”förbjuden” doesn't work that well since there is a slight difference in the use.

Re: Forbidden Lands and "Arabian Nights"...at least sort of

So much for now. Is this a concept, that could work? All this sounds fine to me. Just be aware that official areas are planned for the places beyond Alderland in the south and Aslene in the west. Glimpses of the beyond will be seen in the upcoming Aslene expansion. This said, don't let that hamper ...

Re: How do half elves look physically in forbidden lands?

Brior, as loremaster and writer of the setting, could you shed some light on how the reshaping and morphing of the elves work? Are they able to shape any material that they are embedded in, or are they limited to flesh and living wood? And is the transformation purely cosmetic or do they gain the a...

Re: How do half elves look physically in forbidden lands?

And I wouldn’t necessarily say “good-looking”. Elves in Forbidden Lands are more alien than simply being pretty pointy-eared humans to me. Don't elves have some control over their appearance when they grow a new body? How alien they look might depend on how much they care to blend in with humans. I...

Re: Writing Aslene

OK guys! I realize I was a little too unspecific. Big cities, deserts and necromancers have all been discussed, and will probably surface in future expansions. Not so in Aslene though – the setting is mostly given, since this is the neighboring area to Ravenland with a similar climate albeit somewha...

Writing Aslene

Hi, I'm currently preparing the Aslene expansion west of Ravenland. It would be great to have some input from players and GM's on what has worked / not worked in the adventure sites of Raven's purge and Weatherstone (that I also wrote). That is, what do you like more or less of or tweaks of: fightin...

Re: Animal form and swarm

True and I thought the same but... I read the campaign and one npc could transform into a flock. So I was wondering if really not possible (cool anyway). I personally like the changing into a swarm, as long as it sticks together since it is driven by a single intelligence. You shouldn't be able to ...

Re: Slavery in Ravenland

Many interesting views here. Just a tip that might be useful if you want to play a slaver. I got this book from a friend, a mock roman slavers manual, based upon what different romans actually have written on slavery and slaves. It's more about owning and managing slaves than catching and selling th...

Re: Rust Brothers take on Wyrm

I did get the impression that Wyrm worship has largely been co-opted in Ravenland.
It has, but not very extensively.
