Re: Peoples and clans

I just read through the short descriptions of the kins, but I have to say that not one of those excites me into playing them. Maybe I was hoping for something less generic fantasy or maybe the descriptions are just too short and too broad to get a real sense of what the difference is to the usual d...

Re: Class Speculation

That's a shame as the back story of the endlaved Orcs being gifted by the God to the elves and dwarfs has really inspired one of my players as he now wants to take the role of an Orc that may work towards a full uprising against the slave masters, if they still exist once the blood must has gone. T...

Re: Class Speculation

Also, if the Forbidden Lands elves still follow the "noble elves trope" it might also make sense to restrict "Raiders" (distinct from warrior) as a class not open for those of the elf race?  In our modern "me" culture everyone wants everything all the time, but I think, a fantasy setting has more c...

Re: Peoples and clans

I dont think we have any indication that we will have dark elves and light elves. Svartalfer, that have been referred elsewhere, that is admittedly the name used in the eddas for what might be old norse "dark elves" (or dwarves) but in this context its really goblins/hobgoblins. "Svartalfar" would ...

Re: Class Speculation

Looking at all the classes, especially The Minstrel, and not knowing much about all the non-standard Player races, like the orcs and ogres, would it be impudent to consider some class restrictions like no minstrel professions in certain races like orcs and ogres? For me I actually think playing an ...

Re: Peoples and clans

Remember, in a fantasy setting a magical elven race can still be dark-skinned because they live underground (bear with me, I am channelling DnD tropes here), even though based on our current biology, underground creatures are lighter skinned since they do not need protection from sunlight. Having sa...

Re: Peoples and clans

Okay, so if orcs eventually become a playable race in Forbidden Lands, will they have mostly allied relations with the other Player races of humans, elves, dwarves or would it be only a few outcast orcs friendly within a Player adventuring party, but with the majority of the orcs still serving in t...
