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 ...

Pdf sources

Is there any reason why on some orders the PDFs are provided thru drivethrurpg.com and other time a download link is emailed? End of the day I get the files, but I personally like having them on drivethrurpg if only because it notifies of updates.

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. Thanks for the background info! Another ...

Re: Forbidden Lands RPG facebook group closing down.

I like it, very poetic!

Re: Forbidden Lands RPG facebook group closing down.

Out of curiosity what is the english translation for Svärdets sång? Google translate spits out "The song of the sword", I know the game as Forbidden Lands.

Re: Play by post and xp

I would look at giving XP at milestones within the adventure.  Or perhaps when the party stop for an evening, and rest? That's a solid idea. I have never actually ran or even played a game of Forbidden Lands, on average how much XP is dished out per session? Rulebook says XP is only given for defea...

Play by post and xp

I am setting up a play by post on ropl.net and we are close to getting started... Any suggestions on how to handle XP? At a table you give xp at the end of a session, but there are no "sessions" with this format. I don't want to give out too much too quick, but I also don't want the players to feel ...

Re: Broken from falling

If falling from too high, let's say 40m, do you still make them roll, or just declare death? If they are wearing a helm, rules as written say you can never die outright from falling(assuming blunt damage is used). The real answer is that they are dead, unless they landed in a deep enough bit of wat...
