Re: Dealing w/ Lethality

One of the best defensive strategies is to get the Talents that grant free Dodge or Parry checks. When combined with Talents that grant extra attacks, the PCs in my group hack their way through enemies and monsters pretty easily. The key might be to just survive the first few sessions so you can get...

Re: My Monster File

I am also trying to convert a Giant Centipede from Labyrinth Lord and it says save as "0 level Human".
Okay thanks, I've added "Human 0" as an option on the drop down. It gives no bonuses at all.

Re: Rank 4 spells for players

My understanding is that the character would learn a rank 4 spell with a profession rank at level 3, which is the maximum. By doing so, they are forced to have a mishap every time they cast a spell from a rank higher than their profession rank. I do agree there has to be a limit, after all the play...

Re: My Monster File

It seems I can no longer edit the monster file :(
Thanks for letting me know. I have fixed the sharing permissions in Google drive, don't know why they changed. :)

Re: My Monster File

Okay sure, I've used that OSR Movement formula in the Google sheet now.

Re: Converting OSR monsters to Forbidden lands system

Thanks for pointing me to this thread. @Lupex I have applied the formula you created in this thread to my Google doc (and called it "Method 2"). I have attached the results. I don't know whether I prefer Method 1 or Method 2.

Re: My Monster File

One question I did have is that you mention 2-3 monster attacks should be weaker than the monster's overall difficulty rating. How do you implement this for monsters that are only rank 1 difficulty?
You are right. 1 Skull creatures have all their attacks being 1 Skull.

Re: Converting 5E to Forbidden Land

Hehe, sure. If anyone can propose a better formula for converting OSR -> FBL, post it here! My formula (first attempt) is: FBL Strength = (OSR HD) + (Saving Throw Level) + (+3 if Saves As Fighter). Example: A 6HD creature that saves as F3, will have (6+3)+3 = 12 Strength. FBL Agility, Wits and Empat...

Re: Converting 5E to Forbidden Land

I have added an OSR -> FBL converter section. I'm NOT sure it is very good!
