Re: Mass battle

I always find when running unconventional situations to think less about how to emulate the situation and more about how do you make the players FEEL like they are in the situation? So there is a mass battle.. You could keep track of units and moral and so on and so forth. But the players are not th...

Re: Stronghold Questions

Also, just because people don't have the profession "guard" doesn't mean they won't defend themselves. Farmers have scythes and pitchforks. People have shovels and kitchen knives. If the villagers don't like the players enough they could easily spark a "peasant revolt". A town with even 30 people is...

Re: So what's the next Kickstarter going to be?

I know it's very early for this. But I would like to ask that they make a cloth version of the Aslene map as they did for Ravenland and the Bitter Reach. I would also ask that that map have the letter number coordinates from the Raven Lands map that the Bitter Reach is missing. It's really the only ...

Re: Thoughts on a modification of the magic system. Looking for feedback.

I had a thought that the WP spent on spells was going to act as that buffer against skill points. When you cast a spell you don't really have the skill points invested in you can spend the WP to add more dice to make up for it and let the spell do the work. If you have a bunch of skill points invest...

Re: Thoughts on a modification of the magic system. Looking for feedback.

I like it! I had similar ideas during the beta but never made anything of them. The corrupting influence of magic really fits the theme of the game, in my opinion. Some thoughts: - Do 1s on the "magic dice" add corruption even on a non-pushed roll? Seeing how dangerous and debilitating Stress can b...

Re: Thoughts on a modification of the magic system. Looking for feedback.

I like it. I'm working on adding a few different elements to my own homebrew FbL setting, but not quite as 'from the ground up' as this. I do like the Corruption ideas, and would certainly be interested to see how it would work in practice, especially any Corruption tables. I've not played Alien bu...

Thoughts on a modification of the magic system. Looking for feedback.

Okay. So I am sitting 50/50 on writing a new game under the OGL or just doing a book of house rule supplements for Forbidden Lands. One of the elements I am looking to tackle and change is the magic system. I have some ideas and I am looking for some input and feedback. So I dug into some other year...

Re: Conducting experiments in magic

I think more importantly they need access to Mog. It's made fairly clear that all these hybrids and abominations are the result of using Mog to mutate and meld various creatures together. Zytera being the biggest experimenter and the creator of many monsters in the Forbidden Lands has the greatest a...

Re: The bitter reach map

You might be waiting until the next kickstarter. I imagine any that exist were purchased for personal use. Good luck though.

Re: Questions regarding Throwing Weapons ?.

Ready weapon is for knocking and arrow. If you have a dagger in your hand there is no reason to "prepare it" for the flick of a wrist needed to throw it. You already have it in hand to throw.
