Re: One-on-one/duet campaign

It depends on the type of game you want to play. Forbidden Lands is not really made for a skill use heavy type of game; its aesthetic is old school hex crawling the wilderness & combat. You could certainly set a game in a city or town where your wife plays a character like a Rogue and gets into all ...

Is WITS any use for spellcasting?

Both the Druid and the Sorcerer have WITS as their key attributes, but it doesn't seem to affect the casting of spells or their effect in any way. Is this true?

Re: Blood Magic against multiple targets

I would say no; for aside from less of a chance of mishap you are using only 1 Action, than using multiple actions which would be a critical factor during combats. Yes you are not using it in a combat but if you do it once you are going to set a precedent in your game. btw the only aoe spell that co...

Animal Form Spell

I have the following questions: When you use the Animal Form spell to transform into an animal, like say a bear, can you use any of your Talents while in animal form, such as BRAWLER, BERSERKER, FAST FOOTWORK, etc? Also, if you have taken any damage to your STR or AGI before transforming (either to ...

Re: General Talents & Professional Talents confusion

Well I'm not sure if you understand the bolded part in my first post. For me it is clear that not only you can forgo general talents and buy up either a profession talent or (if your age group gives more than 2 bonus general talents) buy up your preferred general talent as well. Ok now that I read ...

Re: General Talents & Professional Talents confusion

The same page explicitly mentions "Every talent has three ranks. You normally start the game with rank 1 in each talent, but you can choose to forgo one general talent for starting the game with rank 2 in another ", it's directly below the passage you are quoting! It doesn't have anything to do wit...

General Talents & Professional Talents confusion

The players guide states on page 33: At the start of the game, you get a number of talents that depend on your kin, your profession and your age: ✥✥ Your kin talent ✥✥ A profession talent of your choice ✥✥ A number of general talents of your choice depending on your age (see below) Thereafter it als...

Re: Awareness and Sorcerers

Good catch; though its likely an error, the Path of Stone does make more sense as a Druid Path. Although I wish it was open to both Druids and Sorcs. FL really dropped the ball on magic in this game; far too few spells, and the ones that are there are underwhelming, even for a gritty S&S setting. Th...

Re: Map stickers PDF?

Yeah FL confirmed on the Kickstarter we would get the stickers as a soft copy as well, but currently they are not available on the Pledgemanager downloads nor the Drivethru downloads. Any chance of making it happened FL? They would complement my soft copy/pdf of the map nicely; that way I don't ruin...

Re: Lethal magic

Magic Users do seem to be getting shafted pretty hard; aside from extremely risky and potentially character ending mishaps on even minor spells, we have too few and uninspired spells in general; I get they are going for a Sword and Sorcery which is cool, but even Conan had a Sorceror or Priest firin...
